You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
A frog in a well cannot conceive of the ocean.
Ocean is more ancient than the mountains, and freighted with the memories and the dreams of Time.
But more wonderful than the lore of old men and the lore of books is the secret lore of ocean. Blue, green, grey, white, or black; smooth, ruffled, or mountainous; that ocean is not silent.
