Whale Vision

Is it not curious, that so vast a
being as the whale should see the world
through so small an eye?
-Moby Dick

I haven't read Moby Dick in ages. One tends to get lost in it, and I don't recall reading these words that you higlighted here. It's ironic indeed about the whale. Says something about us humans as well.

I stumbled across this particular quote from the book yesterday. I read Moby Dick as a child so it has been ages for me as well.

The quote was written in a book I purchased off the sunday town market yesterday. I managed to get hold of a 1955 printed classic in naval warfare called One of our Submarines, and they sold it for virtually nothing!
