A Quote by Kolbein Falkeid on blue, earth, eternity, life, light, sea, solitude, soul, and stars

Like the prodigal son
I return to you, the sea.
You who scare the idylls off
into tame inner fjords, bays and inlets
because you are much too majestic for weekend yachtsmen,
outboard motors and hobby anglers.
Without so much as a blink you swallow the sun
like a raw egg-yolk for supper
and at daybreak you lift heavy banks of cloud
dense with rain and squalls, a wet cloth
on sleep-heavy eyes and throbbing temples.
With the horizon like a diadem about your brows
you write your salt letters to the shore.
Land changes,
men and beasts come and go.
Only you
live your solitary life, the world's
blue eyes fixed on the stars and eternity.

If the Earth has a soul,
it swims in you.

Kolbein Falkeid

A Quote by Åse-Marie Nesse on blue, life, light, and sea

There are no footprints on the sea
and no road-signs, not a single
guard-stone or post, and no
bends, only paths of light and dark
from which to choose, the choice is always
a difficult navigation
and the storm's wingspan immeasurable
as the depths and the horizon, but
the sea holds you in its mighty hand
your life is a sea-blue tale
of love and death.

A Quote by Stein Mehren on blue, light, and sea

Daybreak; glowing, a sun rises
through the blue stem of the sea
shoots to the top, unfolds
And the sea's petals tremble.

A Quote by Nils-Aslak Valkeapää on blue, light, nature, and space

the whole world, wide
grazing land, the open spaces
wind across the land
and the sky, blue, high

A Quote by Harald Sverdrup on blue, life, nature, and sea

I sing and I sing
a blue melody
when the sea which tumbles
my life in its storm
has sculpted me free
in its lulling calm
and eddied its form
in my restless blood.
I sing and I sing
a blue melody.

A Quote by Margaret Fuller on blue, earth, and stars

Who can know these and, other myriad children of Chaos and old night, who can know the awe the horror and the majesty of earth, yet be content with the blue sky alone.  Not I for one.  I love the love lit dome above, I cannot live without mine own particular star; but my foot is on the earth and I wish to walk over it until my wings be grown.  I will use my microscope as well as my telescope.  And oh ye flowers, ye fruits, and, nearer kindred yet, stones with your veins so worn by fire and water, and here and there disclosing streaks of golden ore, let us know one another before we part.  Tell me your secret, tell me mine.  To be human is also something?

Margaret Fuller (1810 - 1850)

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on blue


It might be easier
   To fail with land in sight,
That gain my blue peninsula
   To perish of delight.

A Quote by Neil Young on blue, dream, memory, mind, moon, place, and stars

There is a town in north Ontario,
With dream comfort memory to spare,
And in my mind
I still need a place to go,
All my changes were there.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.

Neil Young

A Quote by Dave Matthews on blue, moon, and stars

The moon is quite a show off given the chance.  The stars make a sound when they shine so bright.  Water so blue and so black.
