    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 o’er the surface skims.
          Prelude to the amber whale.

    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.

7981
    Be silent and safe—silence never betrays you.
          Rules of the Road.
