Şöyle ki, gemilerde "jurnal" adı verilen bir seyir defteri bulunur. gemi limandayken ya da seyir halindeyken yaşanan gelişmeler bu jurnal defterine kaydedilir. Geminin rotası, hızı, geldiği ve gideceği liman, vardiya değişimleri gibi bilgiler jurnale not edilir.Gemi sığ sulardan ve önemli su yollarından geçerken de jurnal sürekli güncellenir. Örneğin Cebelitarık Boğazı geçilirken "0300 Cebelitarık'a girildi" , "0700 Cebelitarık geçildi" yazılır.Keza İstanbul Boğazı’ndan geçerken "0800 İstanbul Boğazı’na girildi, 1000 Kavaklar geçildi, 1100 Hisar geçildi, 1300 İstanbul Boğazı geçildi" gibi sürekli notlar jurnal edilir.Ama aynı gemiler Çanakkale Boğazı’na geldiklerinde jurnal defterine bunlar yazılmaz. Çanakkale Boğazı seyri tamamlandığında jurnale "0900 Çanakkale çıkıldı" yazılır. ya da "1500 Şehitler Abidesi 2 milden selamlandı" şeklinde not düşülür. Çünkü herkes bilir ki bu dünyada her yer geçilir ama Çanakkale Geçilmez!

“The Deadlock is a body-crushing hug that almost borders on a fear of letting go. In this hug, both people intertwine themselves as tightly as they possibly can, squeezing out every last drop of air separating them. This position is about deep commitment and not wanting to be apart. By wrapping each other up in this way, you fear that letting the other person out of your embrace will somehow mean they will leave.”

Rage and sorrow are seated in my heart, so firmly that I scarce dare stay alive. It seems God wishes to support the Turks to our loss… ah, Lord God…

 They will make a mosque of holy Mary’s convent, and since the theft pleases her Son, Who should weep at this, we are forced to comply as well…

Anyone who wishes to fight the Turks is mad, for Jesus Christ fights them no longer.

—  A Templar poet lamenting the disastrous Seventh Crusade. The Crusades had always been framed as a holy pilgrimage, one endorsed and supported by God. However, this idea of divine support had been shattered after the Seventh Crusade ended in complete failure.

From then on, it was openly discussed and written that God had turned his back on the Christian world out of his displeasure with the Holy Wars, and that the Latin Kingdoms in the East were doomed to perish.
