Regret...when it comes to you, I have oceans of it.
So my great love for thee lies tranquil, deep,Forever; though above it passions fierce,Ambition, hatred, jealousy; like wavesThat seem from earth’s core to the sky to leap,But ocean’s depths can never really pierce;Hide its great calm, while all the surface raves.francis william bourdillon
Hark! Hark! my soul, angelic songs are swellingO’er earth’s green fields and ocean’s wave-beat shore;How sweet the truth those blessed strains are tellingOf that new life when sin shall be no more.frederick William faber

IT tossed and tossed, A little brig I knew, O’ertook by blast, It spun and spun, And groped delirious, for morn. It slipped and slipped, As one that drunken stepped; Its white foot tripped, Then dropped from sight. Ah, brig, good-night To crew and you; The ocean’s heart too smooth, too blue, To break for you.

I do not understand the request of Moses, 'Show me thy glory,' but if he were here . . . after allowing him time to drink the glories of flower, mountain, and sky, I would ask him how they compared with those of the Valley of the Nile . . . and I would inquire how he had the conscience to ask for more glory, when such oceans and atmospheres were about him.
And so this visit, this hallowed ground, reminds us that we must never, ever take our progress for granted. We must commit perennially to peace, which binds us across oceans.Barack Obama
