This week’s Wednesday Whimsy is in honor of my new book Wreck of the Nebula Dream, a reimagining of the Titanic disaster, set in the far future among the stars, available now from Amazon for the kindle and Barnes & Noble for the Nook! The sinking of the Titanic was nearly 100 years ago, on April 15th.
It is better to meet danger than to wait for it. He that is on a lee shore, and foresees a hurricane, stands out to sea and encounters a storm to avoid a shipwreck.
Charles Caleb Colton
The man who has experienced shipwreck shudders even at a calm sea. Ovid
Each man makes his own shipwreck. Lucanus
“Words convey the mental treasures of one period to the generations that follow; and laden with this, their precious freight, they sail safely across gulfs of time in which empires have suffered shipwreck and the languages of common life have sunk into oblivion.”
Anonymous, quoted by Richard Trench
