Round the world


Round the world! There is much in that sound to inspire proud feelings; but whereto does all circumnavigation conduct? In pursuit of those far mysteries we dream of, or in tormented chase of demon phantom that, some time or other, swims before all human hearts; while chasing us such over this round globe, they either lead us in barren mazes or midway leave us whelmed.

Herman Melville, Moby Dick
