Fill in the blanks...

"_____ __ _______ --
__________ _______ --
____ __ ____ _____
_____ __ ______ _______
_____ __ _____ .
In or out
of 'em, it doesn't matter.
Nothing seems really to matter,
that's the charm of it.
Whether you get away,
or whether you don't;
whether you arrive at your destination
or whether you reach somewhere else,
or whether you never get anywhere at all,
you're always busy, and you never do anything in particular;
and when you've done it there's always something else to do,
and you can do it if you like, but you'd much better not."

there is nothing
absolutely nothing
half so much worth
doing as simply messing
about in boats.

Then there's another line which doesn't seem to fit your blanks: "Simply messing...about in boats -- or with boats..."

And then the rest of the quotation.

One of my favorites.
