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.

Quotes edit

The Magic Pudding (1918) edit

  • 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.
    • The Salt Junk Sarah
