Quotes about the sea

“I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”

for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“It's like the sea,” she said.
Giddon’s eyes on her were incredulous.
“What? Is it such a strange thing to say?”

Kristin Cashore, Graceling

“The sea, the snotgreen sea, the scrotumtightening sea.”
James Joyce, Ulysses 

“I am longing to be with you, and by the sea, where we can talk together freely and build our castles in the air.”

“The road to Manderley lay ahead. There was no moon. The sky above our heads was inky black. But the sky on the horizon was not dark at all. It was shot with crimson, like a splash of blood. And the ashes blew towards us with the salt wind from the sea.”
Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca
