QotD: A Boat Rightly Made

If rightly made,
a boat would be a sort of amphibious animal,
a creature of two elements,
related by one-half its structure to some swift and shapely fish,
and by the other to some strong-winged and graceful bird.

--Henry David Thoreau, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers
