Favorite Adventures At Sea Quotes

1. "-No necesitas gastar cada momento del día protegiéndome ahora. Se supone que debo ser tu compañera, no tu carga, y si eso es todo lo que voy a ser para ti, entonces no quiero estar aquí nunca más. Quiero que me ames. Quiero ansiar venir aquí cada otoño. Quiero que el invierno sea mi estación favorita porque puedo pasarla contigo. Así que dime si eso va a suceder, Henry. Dime que las cosas van a mejorar, que no vas a pensar en Perséfone cada vez que me toques. Dime que vas a amarme tanto como la amas a ella, y que no voy a pasar el resto de mi eternidad estancada en la comparaciónde los recuerdos de mi hermana.-Silencio.-Por favor,-le susurré.-Te lo ruego. Si tú no lo haces...Si tú no lo haces, me voy a ir. Y no quiero decir solo por el verano. Voy a dejar el Inframundo, y no voy a volver.-"

By now there's not a constellation I can't name. Orion. Lupus. Serpens. Hercules. Draco. My father taught me all of their stories. So when I look up I see a galaxy of adventures and heroes and villains, all jostling together and trying to outdo one another, and I sometimes want to tell them to hush up and not distract me with their chatter. I've glimpsed all the stars ever discovered by astronomers, and plenty that haven't been."

We delude ourselves that we have discovered a wonderful treasure trove, and when we return to the light of day we find that we have brought back only false stones and shards of glass; and yet the treasure goes on glimmering in the dark, unaltered."
Author: Maurice Maeterlinck

"..the fields might fall to fallow and the birds might stop their song awhile; the growing things might die and lie in silence under snow, while through it all the cold sea wore its face of storms and death and sunken hopes...and yet unseen beneath the waves a warmer current ran that, in its time, would bring the spring."

Let the smell of salt remind you of a paper basket of fried clams you ate once, squeezing them with lemon as you walked on a boardwalk. Let it reach your deeper interest. When you smell the sea, and remember the basket of hot fried clams, and the sound of skee-balls knocking against each other, let it help you love what food can do, which is to tie this moment to that one. Then something about the wind off the sea will have settled in your mind, and carried the fried clams and squeeze of a lemon with it."

The rest, that is to say creativity, life, is optional and comes under the heading of recreation and leisure activities."
Author: Tom McDonough
27. "He turned from the sight of human ignorance and human fate and the sea eating the ground we stand on, which, had he been able to contemplate it fixedly might have led to something; and found consolation in trifles so slight compared with the august theme just now before him that he was disposed to slur that comfort over, to deprecate it, as if to be caught happy in a world of misery was for an honest man the most despicable of crimes."
Author: Virginia Woolf
