Norman Lindsay

If anyone assumes that going one's own way is the easy way, they are very much in error. There's no harder way to go.

Norman Alfred William Lindsay (22 February 1879 – 21 November 1969) was an Australian artist, sculptor, writer, editorial cartoonist and scale modeler, as well as being a highly talented boxer.

The Magic PuddingEdit

The Salt Junk Sarah

Oh, rolling round the ocean,

From a far and foreign land,

May suit the common notion

That a sailor's life is grand.

But as for me, I'd sooner be

A roaring here at home

About the rolling, roaring life

Of them that sails the foam.

For the homeward-bounder's chorus,

Which he roars across the foam,

Is all about chucking a sailor's life,

And settling down at home.

Home, home, home,

That's the song of them that roam,

The song of the roaring, rolling sea

Is all about rolling home.
