The Dick you missed

“There is one god that is lord over the earth, and one captain that is lord over the Pequod.”
“It was a terrific, most pitiable, and maddening site.”
“Death to the living, long life to the killers. Success tot sailor’s wives, and greasy luck to the whalers.”
“A wild, mystical, sympathetic feeling was in me; Ahab’s quenchless feud seemed mine.”
“If you inventively regard almost any quadruped’s spine, you will be struck with the resemblance of its vertebrae to a strung necklace of dwarfed skulls.”
