The Daily Dick: Musings on the Greatest Novel Ever

"These are the times of dreamy quietude, when beholding the tranquil beauty and brilliancy of the ocean’s skin, one forgets the tiger heart that pants beneath it; and would not willingly remember, that this velvet paw but conceals a remorseless fang."


Musing: This is so Melville - beautiful language rocking you into a deep reverie, then a stabbing reminder of what is being said. Brilliant.
