Quotes:
From "Moby Dick" (1998)
Capt. Peleg: What do you know about whaling?
Ishmael: Nothing, sir. But I want to see what whaling is. I want to see the world.
Capt. Peleg: Can't you see the world from where you stand, young man? You want to see what whaling is, do you? Are you man enough to pitch a harpoon down a live whale's throat and jump after it?
Ishmael: Well, I am, sir, if it be absolutely indispensible that I do so.
Capt. Peleg: I'll tell you this: There's death in this business, young man.
