Me & The Sea Quotes


I'm the lonely voyager standing on deck, and she's the sea.
The sky is a blanket of gray, merging with the gray sea off
on the horizon. It's hard to tell the difference between sea
and sky. Between voyager and sea. Between reality and the workings
of the heart.
Haruki Murakami

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 everthing in me
that is bewildered and confused.
Rainer Maria Rilke

The voice of the sea speaks to the soul.
The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding
the body in its soft, close embrace.
Kate Chopin

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

Because there's nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean
refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times
it's sent away.
Sarah Kay

keep rebuilding your dreams by Fyodor Dostoyevsky


In the end, you feel that your much-vaunted, inexhaustible fantasy
is growing tired, debilitated, exhausted, because you're bound to
grow out of your old ideals; they're smashed to splinters and turn
to dust, and if you have no other life, you have no choice but to
keep rebuilding your dreams from the splinters and dust. But the heart
longs for something different! And it is vain to dig in the ashes
of your old fancies, trying to find even a tiny spark to fan into
a new flame that will warm the chilled heart and bring back to life
everything that can send the blood rushing wildly through the body,
fill the eyes with tears--everything that can delude you so well!
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, White Nights

Motivation


Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go,
just remember how far you have come. Remember everything
you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all
the fears you have overcome.

A Heart Window by Rumi


Your body is away from me
but there is a window open
from my heart to yours.

From this window, like the moon
I keep sending news secretly.
Rumi

Dare To be by Robert Ingersoll


I wish to be out on the high seas.
I wish to take my chances with wind, and wave, and star.
And I had rather go down in the glory and grandeur
of the storm, than rot in any orthodox harbor.
Robert G. Ingersoll

Reversibility BY Charles Baudlaire

Music:
In The Mood For Love-Shigeru Umebayashi


Reversibility
Charles Baudlaire

Angel full of gaiety, do you know anguish,
Shame, remorse, sobs, vexations,
And the vague terrors of those frightful nights
That compress the heart like a paper one crumples?
Angel full of gaiety, do you know anguish?

Angel full of kindness, do you know hatred,
The clenched fists in the darkness and the tears of gall,
When Vengeance beats out his hellish call to arms,
And makes himself the captain of our faculties?
Angel full of kindness, do you know hatred?


Angel full of health, do you know Fever,
Walking like an exile, moving with dragging steps,
Along the high, wan walls of the charity ward,
And with muttering lips seeking the rare sunlight?
Angel full of health, do you know Fever?

Angel full of beauty, do you know wrinkles,
The fear of growing old, and the hideous torment
Of reading in the eyes of her he once adored
Horror at seeing love turning to devotion?
Angel full of beauty, do you know wrinkles?


Angel full of happiness, of joy and of light,
David on his death-bed would have appealed for health
To the emanations of your enchanted flesh;
But of you, angel, I beg only prayers,
Angel full of happiness, of joy and of light
To The So Dear, To The So Beautiful
To the so dear, to the so beautiful,
who fills my heart with clarity,
to the angel, to the immortal idol,
All hail, in immortality!.

She flows through my reality,
air, mixed with the salt seaswell:
into my soul’s ecstasy,
pours the essence of the eternal;

Everfresh sachet, that scents
the dear corner’s atmospheric light,
hidden smoke, of the burning censer,
in the secret paths of night.


How, incorruptible love,
to express your endless verities?
Grain of musk, unseen, above,
in the depths of my infinities!.

To the so dear, to the so beautiful,
who is my joy and sanity,
to the angel, to the immortal idol,
All hail in immortality!

While there is life there is hope by Jules Verne


While there is life there is hope. I beg to assert...that as long
as a man's heart beats, as long as a man's flesh quivers, I do not
allow that a being gifted with thought and will can allow himself
to despair.
Jules Verne

On the earth, even in the darkest night, the light never wholly
abandons his rule. It is diffused and subtle, but little as may
remain, the retina of the eye is sensible of it.
Jules Verne
