The more I think about it, the more I think *Moby Dick* is a love story. ... Or maybe I'm just really terrible at relationships.

“And here, shipmates, is true and faithful repentance; not clamorous for pardon, but grateful for punishment.” ― Herman Melville, Moby-Dick; or, The Whale

Captain Ahab Rockwell Kent (American, Tarrytown, New York 1882–1971 Plattsburgh, New York)

"He tasks me; he heaps me; I see in him outrageous strength, with an inscrutable malice sinewing it. That inscrutable thing is chiefly what I hate; and be the white whale agent, or be the white whale principal, I will wreak that hate upon him. Talk not to me of blasphemy, man; I’d strike the sun if it insulted me."
