Saturday Sayings – Ocean

Roll on, thou deep and dark blue ocean, roll.
Ten thousand fleets sweep over thee in vain:
Man marks the earth with ruin, –his control
Stops with the shore.

                                –Lord Byron Childe Harold

Comrades! now that we have established our peace on land, let us conquer the freedom of the seas.

                                –Napoleon Bonaparte

Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.

                                –Publilius Syrus Sententiae

The sea folds away from you like a mystery. You can look and look at it and mystery never leaves it.

                                –Carl Sandburg Remembrance Rock

All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full.

                                –Old Testament Ecclesiastes 1:7
