On uncharted seas

"With a new sense of awe he looked at the frank forehead, serious eyes and gay innocent mouth of the young creature whose soul's custodian he was to be . . . and once more it was borne in on him that marriage was not the safe voyage he had been taught to think, but a voyage on uncharted seas."
-Edith Wharton, The Age of Innocence
