Splash du Jour: Monday

 "I will have no man in my boat," said Starbuck, "who is not afraid of a whale." By this, he seemed to mean, not only that the most reliable and useful courage is that which arises from the fair estimation of the encountered peril, but that an utterly fearless man is a far more dangerous comrade than a coward.
-- Herman Melville, Moby Dick --

Have a great Monday!

Isn't it great?
I'm really enjoying this whale of a book.
