      • The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective. - Henry David Thoreau
      • Twenty years from now, you'll regret the things you didn't do, rather than the things you did do. So cast off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - Mark Twain
      • for whatever we lose (like a you or a me) it’s always ourselves in the sea - e.e. cummings

      • I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it is because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it’s because we all came from the sea.
      • And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins, the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears.
      • We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea — whether it is to sail or to watch it — we are going back to whence we came.
          • — John F. Kennedy
