"The enticing odor which comes out of the mouth of a whale / represents the lust of the flesh. / The jaws which close on unwary schools of fish / symbolize the Gates of Hell closing on the lost. / The mistake of a sailor who chooses evil for good, or / danger for safety, is the tragic error that leads / to utter damnation."
—page 237, Notes from a Bottle Found on the Beach at Carmel by Evan S. Connell.
