To venture in is to take a leap in the dark. But what fun it is, alone and in full uniform… How intoxicating to shut one’s eyes and give oneself up to the rare happiness of pure danger!
Pierre Leulliette. Saint Michel et le dragon

Row, brothers, row, the stream runs fast,
The rapids are near and the daylight’s past.

— from Thomas Moore’s A Canadian Boating Song
