Quotes from famous people about the Beach, the Sea, the Seashore:


 “We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”  --Mother Teresa

“Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me.”  --Albert Schweitzer

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

To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour."   ~William Blake

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

“It is of great use to the sailor to know the length of his line, though he cannot with it fathom all the depths of the ocean.” John Locke

“The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore”-- Vincent van Gogh 

“I pass with relief from the tossing sea of cause and theory to the firm ground of result and fact.”   Winston Churchill (British Orator, Author and Prime Minister during World War II. 1874-1965)

      “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

      “There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul”  Victor Hugo quotes (French romantic Poet, Novelist and Dramatist, 1802-1885)

     "maggie and millie and molly and may"

maggie and millie and molly and may
went down to the beach (to play one day)
and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,  and
millie befriended a stranded star who's rays five languid fingers were;
and molly was chased by a horrible thing which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:
may came home with a smooth round stone as small as a world and as large as alone
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) it's always ourselves we find in the sea.”
 E. E. Cummings   

 “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

      “We are all in the same boat in a stormy sea, and we owe each other a terrible loyalty.”  G. K. Chesterton quotes (English born Gabonese Critic, Essayist, Novelist and Poet, 1874-1936)

“God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform. He plants his footsteps in the sea, and rides upon the storm.”
   William Cowper quotes (English Poet, 1731-1800)

“We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.”  Aristotle Onassis (Greek shipping magnate and Businessman, 1906-1975)

 “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 (US Congregational minister, 1813-1887.)  Father of Harriet Beecher Stowe the author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

"The cure for everything is saltwater...sweat...tears...the sea..."    Karen Blixen

"My life is like a stroll on the beach...as near to the edge as I can go." —Thoreau   

      “The loneliness you get by the sea is personal and alive. It doesn't subdue you and make you feel abject. It's stimulating loneliness.”   Anne Morrow Lindbergh (American writer 1906-2001)

I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me. Sir Isaac Newton

"The Sea, Once it casts its spell holds one in its net of wonder forever." Author: Jacques Cousteau
