I do not belong to any church. I believe that nature’s God is good. He has cared for me when I was almost sure there was no hope. I have nothing to say against folks who like to worship God under a roof. That’s there. But I like to sit out here and look at the sea and the sky. That’s an open Bible any man can read to suit himself.
James Buddington, 1817 – 1908, Arctic Explorer, Whaling Captain, and Discoverer of the lost HMS Resolute
