"Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale; to the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee" (p.550).
After three and a half months aboard the Pequod, I thought I would conquer Moby Dick. But it was indeed he who conquered me.

Under the Sea

This juvenile boxfish was found on a recent expedition into the "coral triangle" bordered by the Phillipines, Malaysia and Indonesia. They went three miles below the surface and discovered this crazy creature. Woah.
