In so far as the mind is stronger than the body, so are the ills contracted by the mind more severe than those contracted by the body.
Ship Starting, The.
by Walt Whitman
LO! the unbounded sea!
On its breast a Ship starting, spreading all her sails—an ample Ship,
carrying even her moonsails;
The pennant is flying aloft, as she speeds, she speeds so stately—below,
emulous waves press forward,
They surround the Ship, with shining curving motions, and foam.
