When you’re going through hell, keep on going...

“I didn’t fall down, I’m just getting a close up look at these blades of grass!”

A quote from a very old Boy Scout Adult leader leading a bunch of much younger adult scouters on a training hike. IIRC, he was in his early 90’s at the time, and we had a heck of a time keeping up with him.
RIP, Charlie...

"Tell Them To Move It"

I recently came across the following clipping from the New York Herald Tribune Sunday Magazine, which incorporated the weekly magazine “This Week” -- from the mid-1960’s or so. The author is Thomas Duncan. [links below] It had been pasted on the family fridge, and just surfaced from a storage box, during these stay-at-home good times for deep Spring cleanings.

Apologies for the length of the quote . . . “all or nothing” for stuff like this IMO.
________________________________________________
[Quote transcribed from the clipping]

“Tell Them To Move It”

His name doesn’t matter. In his sixties, he was captain of a freighter plying between New Orleans and Puerto Rico, and of all the men I’ve known he seemed the least given to worry. Yet his responsibilities were heavier than those of most captains on that run.

Going down the Mississippi, most ships take on a river pilot. And shortly before entering the Gulf, a pass pilot. Not this ship. Our captain was licensed to do it all. For some nine hours after leaving New Orleans he stood calling directions to the helmsman for navigating that tricky channel.

And most ships, upon entering the harbor at San Juan, take on a harbor pilot. Again, not this ship. Our captain was licensed to do that too. Most men in his position would have fretted. But the captain was not a worrier. Usually there was a twinkle in his eyes, a smile on his lips.

I wondered how he managed to carry so much responsibility so calmly, even so merrily.

One day the third mate told me of an incident at New Orleans several months before. A bridge was under construction. And the water was high. As the ship left the dock, the bewitched current seized her and carried her toward one of the bridge abutments. The captain stood giving orders, but the Mississippi can be treacherous and despite everything the ship continued lurching toward the abutment.

“Captain!” somebody called. “We’re going to smash the bridge!” The captain smiled.

“Tell them to move it,” he said.

As it happened, the ship missed the abutment, by inches. But that’s not the point. The point is that there was a man expert at his job who was doing his duty to the very limit of his ability. Knowing that he was doing all within his power to prevent a collision, he refused to lose his head and worry about what could not be helped.

When the going gets rough, I remember the captain’s words. I ask myself whether I’m doing my best. If I am, I tell myself no man can do better than his best, and I refuse to worry.

“Tell them to move it,” I think; and usually the memory of the captain’s words makes me smile.

Thank you, Thomas Duncan, for the magnificently sparse writing.

Thank you, captain!

That’s a good one, Peter.

Reminiscent of “steady as she goes”, and “stay the course”.

We are all feeling our way through, is the truth.
