„p>The partaker partakes of that which changes him.
The child that touches takes character from the thing,
The body, it touches. The captain and his menAre one and the sailor and the sea are one.</p“

„These descents of mine beneath the sea seemed to partake of a real cosmic character.“

—  William Beebe American ornithologist, marine biologist, entomologist, and explorer 1877 - 1962

Half Mile Down (1951), p. 148
Kontext: These descents of mine beneath the sea seemed to partake of a real cosmic character. First of all there was the complete and utter loneliness and isolation, a feeling wholly unlike the isolation felt when removed from fellow men by mere distance …. It was a loneliness more akin to a first venture upon the moon or Venus than that from a plane in mid-ocean or a stance on Mount Everest: no whit more wonderful than these feats, but different.

„p>Throw thy bold banner to the breeze!
Front with thy ranks the threatening seas
Like thine own proud armorial trees,
Carolina! Fling down thy gauntlet to the Huns,
And roar the challenge from thy guns;
Then leave the future to thy sons,
Carolina!</p“

—  Henry Timrod Poet from the American South 1828 - 1867

"Carolina", st. VII, 2–3
An adaptation of this poem , edited by G.R. Goodwin and set to music by Anne Curtis Burgess, was adopted as the official state song of Carolina in 1911.

„Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.“

—  Robert Louis Stevenson, buch Underwoods

Bk. I, Requiem (the final sentence was used on Stevenson's Gravestone).
Underwoods (1887)
Kontext: Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.

This be the verse you grave for me:
Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.
