The Shore

all is vanity under the sun.

"You’ve loved this ship since the first moment you saw her. I’ve never seen you look at a woman the way you look at her. I think you and the Wench were meant to be together, Jack. One of those pairs people say in the same breath. Like… Adam and Eve. King Arthur and Excalibur. Robin Hood and Maid Marian. Jack Sparrow and the Wicked Wench. The Wicked Wench is like your pearl of great price."
"Pearl?"
"It’s from the Bible, Jack. A parable Jesus told his disciples, about a merchant who saw a perfect pearl, the most wonderful, beautiful one in the whole world, but very costly. The merchant had to have this thing that was so perfect, so he sold everything he had so he could possess it."
