“A mighty pain to love it is, and ’tis a pain that pain to miss; but of all the pains, the greatest pain is to love, but love in vain.” - Abraham Crowley
Captain: You see what I told you? Islands are nothing but a pain. Its better to admire those from afar. Get too close and they'll only leave a **** hole in our boat
Crew: But Captain, they're so beautiful. We can't help it
Captain: You remember what happened last time we stopped any pretty island, half of us barely made it back alive. This boat is all I have. We must keep sailing. We must find the perfect island to call our home
Crew: But Captain, how will we know what island is perfect?
Captain: You'll just know, ok? Now just sit tight and hang in there...I feel it coming soon..
Crew: Captain we've been at sea for two years; we're running out food. If we don't find an island soon to create a home, we'll starve
Captain: Just hang on tight, I can feel er' coming to us. You must wait
Crew: Captain there's a island coming up we have to land or we'll die. There isn't anymore food or water.
Captain: .......I... I'm sorry but I cant. This boat is all I have. What if we land and the island isn't perfect, huh? What if we get another hole in the boat? Then we'll be stuck at a island that isn't the same as our old motherland. Something that isn't perfect We cant afford that.
Crew: Captain if you don't land this ship we're leaving and you can sail this ship alone without us or food. Make your decision?
Captain:......
