The Third Picture The fine weather remained unbroken. Yet, one kept thinking, a cry had rent it; all this beauty had been an accomplice that night; had consented; to remain calm, to be still beautiful; at any moment it might be sundered again. But relinquish, I said it is well known how in circumstances like these the self splits up and one self is eager and dissatisfied and the other stern and philosophicalrelinquish these impossible aspirations; be content with the view in front of us, and believe me when I tell you that it is best to sit and soak; to be passive; to accept; and do not bother because nature has given you six little pocket knives with which to cut up the body of a whale.
