Hi folks, this is cited from Redburn by Hermann Melville (1849)
Question: Is what he want from himself? Why are there two yes)

Yes I yes give me this glorious ocean life, this salt-sea life, this briny, foamy life, when the sea neighs and snorts, and you breathe the very breath that the great whales respire! Let me roll around the globe, let me rock upon the sea; let me race and pant out my life, with an eternal breeze astern, and an endless sea before!
