An adventure is a journey during which at some point you wish you were at home.

Mark Twain

 

The entire ocean. The entire world. Wherever we want to go, we’ll go. That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails, that’s what a ship needs but what a ship is…is freedom.

Captain Jack Sparrow

 

Men go back to the mountains, as they go back to sailing ships at sea, because in the mountains and on the sea they must face up, as did men of another age, to the challenge of nature. Modern man lives in a highly synthetic kind of existence. He specializes in this and that. Rarely does he test all his powers or find himself whole. But in the hills and on the water the character of a man comes out.

Abram T. Collier

 

Some men are sailors, but most men are dreamers

Held fast by the anchors they forge in their minds

Who, in their hearts know they'll never sail over deep waters

To search for the treasure they're afraid they won't find

 

There is something in common between the arts of sailing and of climbing.  Each is intimately concerned with elemental things, which from time to time demand from men who practice those arts whatever self-reliance, prudence, and endurance they may have.  The sea and the hills offer challenges to those who venture upon them and in the acceptance of these and in the meeting of them as best he can lies the sailor’s or mountaineer’s reward.  An essential difference is, perhaps, that the mountaineer usually accepts the challenge on his own terms, whereas once at sea the sailor has no say in the matter and in consequence may suffer more the salutary and humbling emotion of fear.

Mischief in Patagonia
