Quotations About / On: OCEAN

  • 101.
    A part of me is of the darkest hidden earth,
    a part of me is of the deepest ocean,
    a part of me is of the endless uncompromising
    space in this galaxy,
    a part of me is the burning fire of our sun,
    and a part of me is the enduring hope that my love
    will go on and on.
    (Louise Martin)

    Small things left alone will grow larger
    the tiny plant in the Forest will become a mighty tree
    the small cloud on a humid day will bellow into a raging storm
    the small ripple deep in the ocean can surge into a tidal wave ashore
    what i have learned from these natural occurrences is simple,
    any problem you face in life will start off small
    and gradually grow larger over the passing of time
    solving problems whilst they are still small enough to be managed is the key.
    (everything in life starts off small including ourselves, it's part of our inevitable growth as human beings.)

  • 103.
    His legs bestrid the ocean; his reared arm
    Crested the world; his voice was propertied
    As all the tuned spheres, and that to friends;
    But when he meant to quail and shake the orb,
    He was as rattling thunder. For his bounty,
    There was no winter in 't; an autumn it was
    That grew the more by reaping. His delights
    Were dolphinlike; they showed his back above
    The element they lived in. In his livery
    Walked crowns and crownets; realms and islands were
    As plates dropped from his pocket.
    (William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British poet. Antony and Cleopatra (V, ii). . . The Unabridged William Shakespeare, William George Clark and William Aldis Wright, eds. (1989) Running Press.)

    Then I have seen by Time's fell hand defaced
    The rich proud cost of outworn buried age;
    When sometime lofty towers I see down-rased,
    And brass eternal slave to mortal rage;
    When I have seen the hungry ocean gain
    Advantage on the kingdom of the shore,
    And the firm soil win of the wat'ry main,
    Increasing store with loss and loss with store;
    When I have seen such interchange of state,
    Or state itself confounded to decay,
    Ruin hath taught me thus to ruminate,
    That Time will come and take my love away.
    This thought is as a death, which cannot choose
    But weep to have that which it fears to lose.
    (William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British poet. When I have seen by Time's fell hand defaces (l. 1-14). . . The Unabridged William Shakespeare, William George Clark and William Aldis Wright, eds. (1989) Running Press.)

    Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more,
    Or close the wall up with our English dead!
    In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
    As modest stillness and humility.
    But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
    Then imitate the action of the tiger:
    Stiffen the sinews, conjure up the blood,
    Disguise fair nature with hard-favored rage.
    Then lend the eye a terrible aspect:
    Let it pry through the portage of the head
    Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
    As fearfully as doth a galled rock
    O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
    Swilled with the wild and wasteful ocean.
    Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
    Hold hard the breath, and bend up every spirit
    To his full height.
    (William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British poet. King Henry V (III, i). NAEL-1. The Unabridged William Shakespeare, William George Clark and William Aldis Wright, eds. (1989) Running Press.)

    Come to think of it,
    No one is beautiful in the dark
    No one is an Ocean that never lacks
    No eye sees its every back
    No one knows all about his very self
    These are what I consider dark.

    Can a man live without a sin?
    No no no! The answers shall sing
    No man can singly bring forth a child
    No man can boast of a shadow free
    No scar in the dark but
    To every light there is a corresponding darkness.

    Care of
    Nothing but obstruction in the dark
    No game wins without a goal
    No perfect and stainless married life
    No one can be
    The most beautiful and perfect at same time.

    Could darkness be a curse to light?
    No one factor shines forever
    None; as holy as the Holy Bible
    None: but if you find
    That thing might be a unicorn

    Never existed and
    Can't be in the dark.
