“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 from whence we came."
John F. Kennedy

“For ever and for ever, to the crack of doom, the sea will insult and murder [man], and pulverize the stateliest, stiffest frigate he can make; nevertheless … man has lost that sense of the full awfulness of the sea which aboriginally belongs to it.”

Herman Melville
