All I say is, if you wish to see Nature robed in her mantle of might, look at a storm at sea; if you want to see her robed in her mantle of glory, look at a sunset at sea.

More quotes by Shackleton, Ernest

Now down in the Ocean sank the fiery light of day,
drawing the dark night across the grain-giving earth.

[Ἐν δ’ ἔπεσ’ Ὠκεανῷ λαμπρὸν φάος ἠελίοιο
ἕλκον νύκτα μέλαιναν ἐπὶ ζείδωρον ἄρουραν.]

The Iliad, Book 8, ll. 485-86 (c. 750 BC) [tr. Fagles (1990)]
