When your ship
long moored in harbour
gives you the illusion
of being a house;
when your ship begins to
put down roots
in the stagnant water
by the quay

Save your boat's journeying soul
and your own pilgrim soul
cost what it may.

Archbishop Helder Camara in The Archetype of Pilgrimage: Outer Action with Inner Meaning by Jean D. Clift, Wallace B. Clift
