Wordy Wednesday



The Sea





Fishes live in the sea, as men do a-land; the great ones eat up the little ones.William Shakespeare


Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty.Thomas Jefferson



The sea pronounces something, over and over, in a hoarse whisper; I cannot quite make it out. Annie Dillard


One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach; one can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few Anne Morrow Lindbergh


The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach Henry Beston

To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me Isaac Newton


I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each. T. S. Eliot

Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Wouldst thou" - so the helmsman answered. -
"Learn the secret of the sea?
Only those who brave its dangers
Comprehend its mystery!”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright -
And this was very odd, because it was
The middle of the night.
Lewis Carrol

Even Castles made of sand, fall into the sea, eventually.
Jimi Hendrix
