They were not ‘well adjusted’ by normal standards but instead forced the world to adjust to them. … Without their irrational confidence, ambitious vision, and unstoppable zeal, these outrageous captains would never have sailed into unknown waters, never discovered new worlds, never changed the course of our history.”
