The Daily Dick: Musings From the Greatest Novel Ever

"Oh, man! admire and model thyself after the whale! Do thou, too, remain warm among ice. Do thou, too, live in this world without being of it. Be cool at the equator; keep thy blood fluid at the Pole. Like the great dome of St. Peter's, and like the great whale, retain, O man! in all seasons a temperature of thine own."


Musing: I never imagined you could have a motivational talk constructed around being like the whale! But I do like this passage. I'm surprised the whale hasn't beceom a hipster mascot by now.
