Mystery
Engrave this Quote What am I, Life? A thing of watery salt held in cohesion by unresting cells. Which work they know not why, which never halt, myself unwitting where their Master dwells?

Oceans
Engrave this Quote I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky; and all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.

-John Edward Masefield
Engrave this Quote I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

-John Edward Masefield, from Sea Fever
Struggle
Engrave this Quote So shall I fight, so shall I tread,
In this long war beneath the stars;
So shall a glory wreathe my head,
So shall I faint and show the scars,
Until this case, this clogging mould,
Be smithied all to kingly gold.

Work
Engrave this Quote To get the whole world out of bed
And washed, and dressed, and warmed, and fed,
To work, and back to bed again,
Believe me, Saul, costs worlds of pain.
