the sea.

live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air...

~ralph waldo emerson
Love is a smoke made with the fumes of sighs. Being purged a fire sparkling in lovers eyes, being vexed a sea nourished with lovers tears, What is it else? A madness most discreet, A choking gall & a persevering sweet

~william shakespeare

we are the musicmakers, we are the dreamers of the dream. wandering by lone sea breakers, & sitting by desolate streams. world losers & world forsakers, for whom the pale moon gleams. yet we are the movers & the shakers of the world forever it seems

~arthur william edgar o'shaughnessy

for whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea

~ee cummings

i do not know what i may appear to the world, but to myself i seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, & diverting myself in now & then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me

~isaac newton

the sun was shining on the sea, shining with all his might: he did his very best to make the billows smooth & bright - & this was very odd, because it was the middle of the night

~lewis carroll
we were the first that ever burst
into that silent sea
~samuel taylor coleridge
