Quote(s) For The Weekend (Beach Edition)

Refugio Beach, July 2012

The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea.
–Isak Dinesen

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

 When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and  the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise,  and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and  confused. – Rainer Maria Rilke

Deep into the summer beach experience.

For whatever we lose (like a you or a  me) it’s always ourselves we find in the sea.
– e.e.  cummings

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

The sea, the great unifier, is man’s only hope. Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: we are all in the same boat.
-Jacques Yves Cousteau

So busy being relaxed…and inspired

    Instead of a quote, I’d like to give you a whole salty-tear-jerking book to read–Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler. The ocean plays a big part.

      Ah, thank you!!! It’s on the list. I mean: The List. Just finishing Ishiguro’s “Never Let Me Go”. You have to read it. I need a discussion! Arrrgh! VERY glad I am finally reading it. One of those books that slowly melts into you–w/agony.
