Exultation is the going
Of an inland soul to sea,
Past the houses—past the headlands—
Into deep Eternity—
Bred as we, among the mountains,
Can the sailor understand
The divine intoxication
Of the first league out from land?
"A TEXT WITHOUT A CONTEXT IS A PRETEXT"
Quotes you can use as a pretext
for thinking what you already think
OR as a precursor to reading the text in its full context
