"The thunder and the sunshine, and opposed
Free hearts, free foreheads you and I are old;
Old age had yet his honour and his toil;
Death closes all: but something ere the end,
Some work of noble note, may yet be done,
Not unbecoming men that strove with Gods.
The lights begin to twinkle from the rocks:
The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs: the deep
Moans round with many voices. Come, my friends,
'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die."

Excert from Ulysses by Alfred Lord Tennyson

"Ride, boldly ride," The shade replied, "If you seek for Eldorado!"
Edgar Alan Poe

Ulysses has just been switched off in good config (i.e. all off except receiver and sun tracker) if I understood the broadcast correctly. Farewell
