"None of which we have," I continued, "but oh, well, we have a boat, instead. We have adventures and memories, and a charmed life, according to millions of envious landlubbers, and we have life, liberty and a floating home in which to undertake the pursuit of happiness. And we are out of the rat-race, the stagnancy, the burden, the satisfaction of civilization - to sum it into three drastic words: we can't complain. O.K., I'm not."
