We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.
John F. Kennedy

The water in a vessel is sparkling; the water in the sea is dark. The small truth has words which are clear; the great truth has great silence.
Rabindranath Tagore

When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing - just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?
Ralph Marston

Sitting and doing nothing, not planning or fidgeting or even meditating is a soul refreshing non-activity, I practice it and highly recommend it. We are so conditioned to be "busy" with something or another that it's easy to forget to just be still.

All the Kennedy children learned to sail .

RE: quotes 2 -20 -13

A row boat in the middle of a lake at dawn, with the oars drawn up is one of my quiet moments,
But sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of tea early in the morning is also one of my quiet moments.
Good quotes
