Quotes on SEA



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; ..............



                                       -BYRON, Childe Harold, IV

I will go back to the great sweet mother,

   Mother and  lover of men, the sea.

I will go down to her, I and none other,

   Close with her, kiss her, and mix her with me.

Secure I rest upom the wave,

For thou, O Lord ! hast power to save.

Where the scattered waters rave,
