Quote of the Day: D.H. Lawrence on the Magnificence of Whales


Photo credit: tk_five_0
They say the sea is cold, but the sea contains
the hottest blood of all, and the wildest, the most urgent.

All the whales in the wider deeps, hot are they, as they urge
on and on, and dive beneath the icebergs.
The right whales, the sperm-whales, the hammer-heads, the killers
there they blow, there they blow, hot wild white breath out of
the sea!"

—D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930), "Whales Weep Not"
