~ Robert Louis Stevenson (November 13, 1850 - December 03, 1894)
In the immutability of their surroundings the foreign shores, the foreign faces, the changing immensity of life, glide past, veiled not by a sense of mystery but by a slightly disdainful ignorance; for there is nothing mysterious to a seaman unless it be the sea itself, which is the mistress of his existence and as inscrutable as Destiny.
~ Joseph Conrad (December 03, 1857 - August 03, 1924)
