Lower away, and after him! And what tune is it ye pull to, men?

A dead whale or a stove boat!

This fatalistic expression describes the reality of the nineteenth century whale hunt, which resulted in either a slaughtered whale or a smashed boat. Carved into granite on theWhaleman’s Memorial, a statue of a fierce harpooner marking the front of the New Bedford Public Library, the words “A Dead Whale or a Stove Boat” convey the all-or-nothing mentality of the quest for “liquid gold.”
