Roll on, thou deep and dark blue Ocean….

Roll on, thou deep and dark blue Ocean–roll!
Ten thousand fleets sweep over thee in vain;
Man marks the earth with ruin–his control
Stops with the shore….
But more wonderful than the lore of old men and the lore of books is the secret lore of ocean. H. P. Lovecraft
"In every outthrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth" Rachel Carson
How much more there is now to living! Instead of our drab slogging forth and back to the fishing boats, there’s reason to life! We can lift ourselves out of ignorance, we can find ourselves as creatures of excellence and intelligence and skill. We can be free! We can learn to fly!
