Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Break, break, break,
On thy cold gray stones, O sea!
And I would that my tongue could utter
The thoughts that arise in me.

And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.

To yourself be true,
And, whatever your lot may be,
Paddle your own canoe.

William Shakespeare

I pass with relief from the tossing sea of cause and theory to the firm ground of result and fact.
Winston Churchill

Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more,
Men were deceivers ever,
One foot in sea and one on shore,
To one thing constant never.
William Shakespeare

We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of the dream. Wandering by lone sea breakers, and sitting by desolate streams. World losers and world forsakers, for whom the pale moon gleams. Yet we are movers and the shakers of the world forever it seems.
Arthur William Edgar O'Shaughnessy

You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. Don't let yourself indulge in vain wishes.

My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep. The more I give thee, the more I have, For both are infinite.
William Shakespeare

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

We are all in the same boat in a stormy sea, and we owe each other a terrible loyalty.
G. K. Chesterton

God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform. He plants his footsteps in the sea, and rides upon the storm.
William Cowper

We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.
Aristotle Onassis

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 Carroll

There isn't any symbolism. The sea is the sea. The old man is an old man. The boy is a boy and the fish is a fish. The shark are all sharks no better and no worse. All the symbolism that people say is shit. What goes beyond is what you see beyond when you know.
Ernest Hemingway

A smooth sea never made skilled mariner.
English Proverb

The Bible is God's chart for you to steer by, to keep you from the bottom of the sea, and to show you where the harbor is, and how to reach it without running on rocks or bars.
Henry Ward Beecher

There are fish in the sea better than have ever been caught.
Irish Sayings

There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.
William Shakespeare

But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Kahlil Gibran

For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.
Kahlil Gibran

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.
John F. Kennedy

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

It was the Law of the Sea, they said. Civilization ends at the waterline. Beyond that, we all enter the food chain, and not always right at the top.
Hunter S. Thompson

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

Every time we walk along a beach some ancient urge disturbs us so that we find ourselves shedding shoes and garments or scavenging among seaweed and whitened timbers like the homesick refugees of a long war.
Loren Eiseley

Though inland far we be,
Our souls have sight of that immortal sea
Which brought us hither.
William Wordsworth
Intimations of Immortality.

I find myself at the extremity of a long beach. How gladly does the spirit leap forth, and suddenly enlarge its sense of being to the full extent of the broad, blue, sunny deep! A greeting and a homage to the Sea! I descend over its margin, and dip my hand into the wave that meets me, and bathe my brow. That far-resounding roar is the Ocean's voice of welcome. His salt breath brings a blessing along with it.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Foot-prints on the Sea-shore.

The sea has never been friendly to man. At most it has been the accomplice of human restlessness.
Joseph Conrad

Praise the sea; on shore remain.
John Florio

The great sea makes one a great sceptic.
Richard Jefferies

Why do we love the sea? It is because it has some potent power to make us think things we like to think.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti
The White Ship.

To be or not to be– that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And, by opposing, end them.
William Shakespeare
Hamlet.

The boisterous sea of liberty is never without a wave.
Thomas Jefferson

Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.
Saint Augustine

There is nothing quite so good as burial at sea. It is simple, tidy, and not very incriminating.
Alfred Hitchcock

What each must seek in his life never was on land or sea. It is something out of his own unique potentiality for experience, something that never has been and never could have been experienced by anyone else.
Joseph Campbell
