“I did not wish to take a cabin passage, but rather to go before the mast and on the deck of the world, for there I could best see the moonlight amid the mountains. I do not wish to go below now.”
Henry David Thoreau
“Haul up the flag, you mourners, Not half-mast but all the way; The funeral is done and disbanded; The devil's had the final say”
“Thy tacklings are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey.”
“The signal heads took a beating. They were not mounted to the mast arms but hung from a rod ... A lot got blown away.”
“And ice, mast-high, came floating by, / As green as emerald.”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
“They are going down to check if the mast is still there.”
“It struck some object under the bridge. The mast broke off at the base.”
