‘Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing,
Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
So on the ocean of life we pass and speak once another,
Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and silence.’

–  HW Longfellow, ‘The Theologian’s Tale: Elizabeth’ in Tales of a Wayside Inn.
