On whom the pale moon gleams:
We are the movers and shakers
Of the world forever it seems.
| One man with a dream, at pleasure,|
Shall go forth and conquer a crown:
And three with a new songs measure
Can trample a kingdom down.
| Each age is a dream that is dying,|
Or one that is coming to birth.

| Though it lash the shallows that line the beach,|
Afar from the great sea-deeps,
There is never a storm whose might can reach
Where the vast leviathan sleeps.
Like a mighty thought in a mighty mind
In the clear cold depths he swims;
Whilst above him the pettiest form of his kind
With a dash oer the surface skims.
| Prelude to the amber whale.|
| They who see the Flying Dutchman never, never reach the shore.|

| Doubt is brother-devil to Despair.|
| The world is large when weary leagues two loving hearts divide|
But the world is small when your enemy is loose on the other side.
| Be silent and safesilence never betrays you.|
| Rules of the Road.|
| I d rather live in Bohemia than in any other land.|
