Sail forth, steer for the deep waters only,
Reckless, O soul, exploring
I with thee and thou with me.
For we are bound where mariner has
not yet dared to go
And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.
O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy but safe!
Are they not all the seas of God,
O farther, farther, farther sail!
-Walt Whitman, Passage to India
