Best Quote of the Week ~ [12/22/13]

The Course of Empire: The Savage State by Thomas Cole (1836)

          "West, West! Whitherward point hope and prophet-fingers, whitherward at sunset kneel all worshipers of fire, whitherward in mid-ocean the great whales turn to die, whitherward face all the Moslem dead in Persia, whitherward lie Heaven and Hell!"
~A Passage from Herman Melville's Mardi: And Voyage Thither
