I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky; and all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.

John Edward Masefield,

There is no drop of water in the ocean, not even in the deepest parts of the abyss, that does not know and respond to the mysterious forces that create the tide.

Rachel Carson,

The sea speaks a language polite people never repeat. It is a colossal scavenger slang and has no respect.

Carl Sandburg, poet

Those who live by the sea can hardly form a single thought of which the sea would not be part.

Hermann Broch, writer

The sea is mother-death and she is a mighty female, the one who wins, the one who sucks us all up.

Anne Sexton, poet

Neither does man have gills for living in a water environment; yet it is not sinful to explore the depths of the oceans in search of food or other blessings.

Walter Lang, director

William Hazlitt, critic

With this idea, being a man with long experience of the sea (and they certainly have a great advantage over other men in any sort of task)...

To me, the sea is like a person -- like a child that I've known a long time. It sounds crazy, I know, but when I swim in the sea I talk to it. I never feel alone when I'm out there.

Gertrude Ederle,

As usual I finish the day before the sea, sumptuous this evening beneath the moon, which writes Arab symbols with phosphorescent streaks on the slow swells. There is no end to the sky and the waters. How well they accompany sadness!

Albert Camus, philosopher

Many, many steeples would have to be stacked one on top of another to reach from the bottom to the surface of the sea.

Hans Christian Andersen, author

Fifteen men on the Dead Man's Chest

Young Ewing Allison,

Since writing JAWS, I've been lucky enough to do close to forty television shows about wildlife in the oceans, and yes, I have been attacked by sea creatures once in a while.

Peter Benchley, author

I think the Caribbean countries face rising oceans and they face increase in the severity of hurricanes. This is something that is very, very scary to all of us. The island states in the world represent - I remember this number - one-half of 1 percent of the carbon emissions in the world. And they will - some of them will disappear.

Steven Chu, scientist

Peggy Noonan, writer

Our surest protection against assault from abroad has been not all our guards, gates and guns, or even our two oceans, but our essential goodness as a people. Our richest asset has been not our material wealth but our values.

Theodore C. Sorensen, lawyer

I don't watch much telly, the telly hardly goes on, but the things I do watch are sort of nature programs, and something about the oceans and the amount of weird fish that's in there.

Neither our oceans nor our radar nor our fighters can keep us intact through another major war.

Philip Morrison, scientist

The sea -- this truth must be confessed -- has no generosity. No display of manly qualities -- courage, hardihood, endurance, faithfulness -- has ever been known to touch its irresponsible consciousness of power.

Joseph Conrad, novelist

Before computers, telephone lines and television connect us, we all share the same air, the same oceans, the same mountains and rivers. We are all equally responsible for protecting them.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, actress

We are opening up an enormous new era in archaeology. Time capsules in the deep oceans.

We do not have the luxury of two big oceans protecting us as we have had in the past, for we now have a new kind of enemy who deals with stealthiness. Our ability to protect ourselves is having the information ahead of time so we can thwart the attack.

Bill Nelson, politician

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied; And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying, And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

John Edward Masefield,

It blows a snowing gale in the winter of the year; The boats are on the sea and the crews are on the pier.The needle of the vane, it is veering to and fro,A flash of sun is on the veering of the vane.Autumn leaves and rain,The passion of the gale.

Robert Louis Stevenson, writer

The ocean is a wilderness reaching round the globe, wilder than a Bengal jungle, and fuller of monsters, washing the very wharves of our cities and the gardens of our sea-side residences.

Henry David Thoreau, author
