Are you following the Moby Dick bot on Twitter? It frequently posts random tweet-sized quotes from the text of Moby Dick, and sometimes it feels eerily appropriate for the day and time. Or maybe it's just that every tweet seems appropriate for the Trump administration.
from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee— Moby Dick (@MobyDickatSea) December 18, 2017
There's something to be said for the synchronicity of a freshly appropriate Melville quote smacking you across the face in your timeline. It's kind of like watching a fin break the surface of the water and knowing that there's something more, something bigger, going on beneath the surface.
