`The Solemn with the Ludicrous'

Richard Henry Dana, Two Years before the Mast (1840), Chap. 4:

“Yet a sailor’s life is at best but a mixture of a little good with much evil, and a little pleasure with much pain. The beautiful is linked with the revolting, the sublime with the commonplace, and the solemn with the ludicrous.”
