"The wind has died down. The sails have been lowered.
The steering oar has been taken over by a greater arm.
At the shore, Thor is resting until the Morning of the Resurrection.
Lord our God, How great is Thy name over all the Earth!"
- Bishop Gunnar Stålsett , State Funeral for Thor Heyerdahl, 26 April 2002, Oslo
