Their Eyes Were Watching God Quotation

One of my favorite quotations from one of my favorite books, Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God:

"Ships at a distance have every man's wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the watcher turns his eye away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death by Time."
