“Monhegan: its rock-bound shores, its towering headlands; the thundering surf with gleaming crests and emerald eddies, its forest and its flowering meadowlands; the village, quaint and picturesque; the fish-houses, evoking in their dilapidation those sad thoughts on the passage of time and the transitoriness of all things human so dear to the artistic soul; and the people, those hardy fisherfolk, those men garbed in their sea boots and their black or yellow oil skins, those horny-handed sons of toil - shall I go on?”
P. 120, It's Me O Lord by Rockwell Kent
