A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry on place, sea, space, and stars

Surely a man needs a closed place wherein he may strike root and, like the seed, become.  But also he needs the great Milky Way above him and the vast sea spaces, though neither stars nor ocean serve his daily needs.

A Quote by Edwin Percy Whipple on books, light, sea, and time

Books, - lighthouses erected in the great sea of time, - books, the precious depositories of the thoughts and creations of genius, - books, by whose sorcery times past become time present, and the whole pageantry of the world's history moves in solemn procession before our eyes; - these were to visit the firesides of the humble, and lavish the treasures of the intellect upon the poor.

A Quote by Dave Matthews on cards and sea


Would you like to play
With a fool holding hands
With a one-eyed jack of spades?
While on the deck they sing
All of the captain's cards are kings
Still he and the queen are lost at sea
I hope it isn't you and me
