And that same day, too, gazing far down from the boat's side into the same golden sea, Starbuck lowly murmured: “Loveliness unfathomable, as ever lover saw in his young bride's eyes! Tell me not of thy teeth-tiered sharks, and thy kidnapping cannibals ways. Let faith oust fact; let fancy oust memory; I love deep down and do believe.”

And Stubb, fish-like, with sparkling scales, leaped up in the same golden light: “I am Stubb, and Stubb has his history; but here Stubb takes oaths that he has always been jolly.”

Ch. CXIV-“The Gilder” in Moby Dick, by Herman Melville
