The sea is a sublime illustration of man’s life. Smooth, quiet, and serene, it suggests tranquil and pleasant sailing. But storms come, and winds and rain threaten to destroy everything within their grasp.

Giant waves rise to awful heights, lightning flashes, and the great conflict of material forces strikes terror in even the stoutest hearts. Then follows calm, the sea stretches out again in its gentle beauty and tranquility, and the sailor looks hopefully toward the desired haven.

You are now traveling over the sea of life. Some days will be smooth, others stormy, but if you are intelligently equipped, you can be confident of a safe voyage and a friendly harbor.
