The Sea

22 Jan

The sea
“I spent uncounted hours sitting at the bow looking at the water and the sky,
studying each wave, different from the last, seeing how it caught
the light,
the air,
the wind;
watching patterns,
the sweep of it all,
and letting it take me.”
― Gary Paulsen,
Caught by the Sea: My Life on Boats

“In still moments
by the sea life
seems large-drawn and simple.
It is there we can see
into ourselves.”
― Rolf Edberg

“We need the tonic of wildness…
At the same time that
we are earnest to explore
and learn all things we require
that all things
be mysterious
and unexplorable,
that land
and sea
be indefinitely wild,
unsurveyed and unfathomed by us
because unfathomable.
We can never have enough of mother nature.”
― Henry David Thoreau,
Walden: Or, Life in the Woods

“My soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me.”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
