My Favorite Line in Moby Dick, thus far

So, when on one side you hoist in Locke's head, you go over that way; but now, on the other side, hoist in Kant's and you come back again; but in very poor plight. Thus, some minds for ever keep trimming boat. Oh, ye foolish! throw all these thunder-heads overboard, and then you will float light and right.


  1. I'm so happy you're reading Moby Dick. God, I love that book.

  2. It's really fantastic. I've got so many little projects running around so I'm not gonna finish it as soon as I hoped, but letting it linger is ok. I forgot how much fun reading was when you're not on any schedules.

  3. Oh, it's a pretty massive will take a long time to read. The good thing, however, is that Moby Dick gets better as you get farther along.
