"A gone shipmate, like any other man, is gone forever; and I never met
one of them again. But at times the spring-flood of memory sets with
force up the dark River of the Nine Bends. Then on the waters of the
forlorn stream drifts a ship - manned by a crew of Shades. They pass
and make a sign, in a shadowy hail. Haven't we, together and upon the
immortal sea, wrung out a meaning from our sinful lives? Goodbye,
brothers! You were a good crowd. As good a crowd as ever fisted with
wild cries the beating canvas of a heavy foresail; or tossing aloft,
invisible in the night, gave back yell for yell to a westerly gail."
- Joseph Conrad
