Been trudging along in Master and Commander for a while and decided to take small break to learn all these nautical terms. Hopefully I can then comprehend what exactly is going on but otherwise an excellent read. 

Other books I am reading simultaneously: 

An Experiment in Criticism – C.S. Lewis

Mere Christianity – C.S. Lewis

Fellowship of the Ring – J.R.R. Tolkien

Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu 

A History of Korea – Michael Seth

I would like to finish half of them plus Soccernomics by November. 

All little creatures are beautiful…every living thing when it first sees life is born in beauty. What they grow to be is a different matter.

Brian Jacques, Outcast of Redwall

행복은 인간의 몸에 좋다. 하지만 인간의 정신력이 키워지는 것은 바로 깊은 슬픔의 체험을 통해서이다. (Happiness is beneficial for body, but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind.)
