I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken, opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

"There's no opium so sweet as the unguarded sunny sleep on the deck of a boat when it's after lunch in summer and you don't know when you are going to arrive nor what port you will land at, when you've forgotten east and west and your name and your address and how much money you have in your pocket."
-- John Dos Passos

T-Pain seems to have captured the fun of it, foul language aside. Here are some quotes from his song:

"I'm on a boat"

"I'm on a boat ,,, take a look at me
Straight flowin on a boat on the deep blue sea
Bustin five knots, wind whippin out my coat
You can't stop me ,,, cause I'm on a boat"

"I got my swim trunks, and my flippie-floppies
I'm flippin burgers, you at Kinko's straight flippin copies"

"I'm on a boat and, it's goin fast and
I got a nautical themed pashmina afghan"

"I'm the king of the world, on a boat like Leo
If you're on the shore, then you're sho' not me-oh"

"Hey ma, if you could see me now
Arms spread wide on the starboard bow"

Regards,
Brad

I don't know if I've just missed this quote or if anyone hasn't used it yet, but one of my favorites is:

All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea -- whether it is to sail or to watch it -- we are going back from whence we came.
John F. Kennedy, Speech given at Newport at the dinner before the America's Cup Races, September 1962
