Ô Mort, vieux capitaine, il est temps ! levons l'ancre !
Ce pays nous ennuie, ô Mort ! Appareillons !
Si le ciel et la mer sont noirs comme de l'encre,
Nos coeurs que tu connais sont remplis de rayons !
'It's time, Old Captain, lift anchor, sink!
The land rots; we shall sail into the night;
if now the sky and sea are black as ink
our hearts, as you must know, are filled with light.'
Baudelaire, 'Le Voyage', VIII.
"Life is not a dress rehearsal so, go on, write a silly story; invent a new dance; buy a banjo; go skinny dipping. Because when you savour the present, life becomes far more delicious."
