There are fish in the sea better than have ever been caught.
There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood,

now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or
lose our ventures.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds
of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make
not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the
shores of your souls.

waterline. Beyond that, we all enter the food chain, and not
always right at the top.

I cannot quite make it out.
Every time we walk along a beach some ancient urge disturbs
us so that we find ourselves shedding shoes and garments or
scavenging among seaweed and whitened timbers like the homesick
refugees of a long war.
Though inland far we be,
Our souls have sight of that immortal sea
Which brought us hither.
Intimations of Immortality.
I find myself at the extremity of a long beach. How gladly does
the spirit leap forth, and suddenly enlarge its sense of being
to the full extent of the broad, blue, sunny deep! A greeting
and a homage to the Sea! I descend over its margin, and dip

breath brings a blessing along with it.

stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.
