"There is something ominous and unnatural about these great lakes... The sea, very properly, will not be allowed in heaven. It has no soul. It is unvintageable, cruel, treacherous, what you will... But these monstrous lakes, which ape the ocean, are not proper to fresh water, or to salt. They have souls, perceptibly, and wicked ones." - Rupert Brooke
