These descents of mine beneath the sea seemed to partake of a real cosmic character. First of all there was the complete and utter loneliness and isolation, a feeling wholly unlike the isolation felt when removed from fellow men by mere distance ... . It was a loneliness more akin to a first venture upon the moon or Venus than that from a plane in mid-ocean or a stance on Mount Everest: no whit more wonderful than these feats, but different.
The mountains look on Marathon And Marathon looks on the sea; And musing there an hour alone, I dreamed that Greece might still be free.Robert Byron
The river is within us, the sea is all about us.
It was the schooner Hesperus, That sailed the wintry sea.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There lived a singer in France of old By the tideless dolorous midland sea. In a land of sand and ruin and gold There shone one woman, and none but she.algernon charles swinburne
When Israel was from bondage led,Led by the Almighty's handFrom out of foreign land,The great sea beheld and fled.Abraham Cowley
There is many a rich stone laid up in the bowels of the earth, many a fair pearl laid up in the bosom of the sea, that never was seen, nor never shall be.joseph hall
The morn was fair, the skies were clear,No breath came o'er the sea.charles jeffreys
The sea ebbs and flows, but the rock remains unmoved.robert murray m'cheyne
There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.patrick rothfuss
Over the sea and far awayShe's waiting like an icebergWaiting to change...kt tunstall
And Jesus was a sailor When he walked upon the water And he spent a long time watching From his lonely wooden tower And when he knew for certain Only drowning men could see him He said "All men will be sailors then Until the sea shall free them" But he himself was broken Long before the sky would open Forsaken, almost human He sank beneath your wisdom like a stoneleonard cohen
Red sails in the sunset, Way out on the sea, Oh carry my loved one Home safely to me.jimmy kennedy
This is a strange fraternity these sea lions and land lions, land unicorns and sea unicorns; the lion civilly rampant, tame and concessive like the long-tailed bear of Ecuador the lion standing up against this screen of woven air which is the forest: the unicorn also, on its hind legs in reciprocity.marianne moore
If the city is on the sea, we should choose ground close to the harbor as the place where the forum is to be built; but if inland, in the middle of the town.vitruvius
Then rose from sea to sky the wild farewell Then shriek'd the timid, and stood still the brave, Then some leap'd overboard with fearful yell, As eager to anticipate their grave.lord byron
My little fellow, about four years old, whom I brought with me, gave himself no trouble amid the boats, omnibuses, and railway coaches, on sea, land, and in dark tunnels; his father was at his side, and never a care or fear or doubt or anxiety had he. May we have grace to be led by the hand, and trust to the care and kindness of a reconciled God and Father.
Tobacco is a traveler, Come from the Indies hither; It passed sea and land Ere it came to my hand, And 'scaped the wind and weather. Tobacco's a musician. And in a pipe delighteth; It descends in a close, Through the organ of the nose, With a relish that inviteth.
Oliver Wendell Holmes said he doubted not that if all the medicines in the world were dumped into the sea it would be a great deal better for the human family, though a great deal worse for the fishes. Some such remark could be made about our voluminous libraries. If something violent should happen to all the law reports now crowding our shelves, and all, or nearly all, of the books of alleged authors on particular branches of the law such books being in the main a product of scissors, paste-pot, and a 10-dollars a week drudge would anybody suffer!
Darius was clearly of the opinion That the air is also man’s dominion, And that, with paddle or fin or pinion, We soon or late Shall navigate The azure, as now we sail the sea.john townsend trowbridge
Sound the loud timbrel o'er Egypt's dark sea! Jehovah hath triumphed his people are free.lord byron
Far clouds of feathery gold, Shaded with deepest purple, gleam Like islands on a dark blue sea.Percy Bysshe Shelley
What fairy-like music steals over the sea, entrancing our senses with charmed melody?Wilson
"Several years ago, when I earned my crust as a policeman, I was chasing a gang of deer poachers across the North Yorkshire moors at dawn as the sun rose from the sea. Just as the diamond tip broke over the hill, the old bobby with me stopped and looked down to the valleys that stretched into the distance. "Look," he said, as if he had seen something for the first time. "God's kingdom, Adam's land - no finer place will you ever find." "
