The sea's only gifts are harsh blows, and occasionally the chance to feel strong.
Now, I don't know much about the sea, but I do know that that's the way it is here.
I also know how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong
but to feel strong.
To measure yourself at least once.
To find yourself at least once in the most ancient of human conditions.
A quote by Chris McCandless from the movie 'Into the Wild'
