We are as near to heaven by sea as by land.
-Sir Humphrey Gilbert,
Before his death at sea, 1583
Wide sea, that one continuous murmur breeds
Along the pebbled shore of memory!
-John Keats, Endymion
We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
-A. O'Shaughnessy, The Music-Makers
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.
-Lord Byron, Don Juan
As down in the sunless retreats of the ocean
Sweet flowers are springing no mortal can see,
So deep in my soul the still prayer of devotion,
Unheard by the world, rises silent to Thee.
-Thomas Moore, The Heart's Prayer
