I ran across a word of encouragement today (Mar 13, 2013).
It’s in the form of a poem by Joaquin Miller.
They sailed. They sailed. Then spoke
“This mad sea shows its teeth
He curls his lip, he lies in wait,
With lifted teeth, as if to bite!
Brave admiral, say but one good
What shall we do when hope is
The words leapt like a leaping sword:
“Sail on! sail on! and on!”
