    Summary

    Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing
    Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
    So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another,
    Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence. - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow; Tales of a Wayside Inn, part 3, section 4.
