“Nothing in Natures sober found,
But an eternal health goes round.
Fill up the bowl, then, fill it high,
Fill all the glasses therefor why
Should every creature drink but I?
Why, man of morals, tell me why?”

“We approached the Indian Island through the narrow strait called Cook. He said, I xpect we take in some water there, river so high,never see it so high at this season. Very rough water there, but short; swamp steamboat once. Dont paddle till I tell you, then you paddle right along. It was a very short rapid. When we were in the midst of it he shouted paddle, and we shot through without taking in a drop.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
