    "What the white whale was to Ahab, has been hinted; what, at times, he was to me, as yet remains unsaid."

    - Ishmael, Moby Dick

    "So why not just relax with [beer]? Don't worry about what you know or don't know. Don't even worry about what you're "supposed" . . . to feel. Just daydream and release your imagination. Believe me, it's more fun than trying to grab a [beer], to nail the poor bastard, to dissect it in order to show how cool your palate is. What a pitiable waste! It's like ignoring a rainbow so you can balance your checkbook."

    - Terry Theise, Reading Between the Wines
