S: Ocean Wisdom

FC: Ocean Wisdom Life Lessons from the Sea | My life is like a stroll upon the beach, as near the ocean's edge as I can go. Henry David Thoreau

1: When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused. Rainer Maria Rilke

2: If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. Psalm 139:9-10

4: Down by the Docks

7: It is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea--whether it is to sail or to watch it--we are going back to whence we came. John F. Kennedy

8: To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me. Isaac Newton

10: It is known sea food Puts you in the mood It is known the sea floor Extends to the shore Most seaports Have a seaside resort And most seafronts Have a sea restaurant Sylvia Chidi

12: The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm is terrible, but they never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore. Vincent Van Gogh

14: Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has courage to lose sight of the shore. Andre Gide

15: The sea does not reward those who are too anxious too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach-waiting for a gift from the sea. Anne Morrow Lindbergh

17: He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea. John 9:8

19: Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

20: 2005 | 2010

21: The ocean, once experienced, can grab hold of a person's soul like no other place on earth. I treasure the time that I can sit and look out upon the waters and simply wonder and reflect. Time passes much too quickly in our day to day lives. It is important that we take the time to come back to our roots and simply listen to God's voice as he speaks to us. The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace. - Kate Chopin All of the photographs were taken at Holden Beach, North Carolina during my annual vacation with the greatest family one could hope for. This book is dedicated to June, my Mother-in-law and Matriarch of the family. Frank Dziepak
