A mob is usually a creature of very mysterious existence, particularly in a large city. Where it comes from or whither it goes, few men can tell. Assembling and dispersing with equal suddenness, it is as difficult to follow to its various sources as the sea itself; nor does the parallel stop here, for the ocean is not more fickle and uncertain, more terrible when roused, more unreasonable, or more cruel.Charles Dickens Sea Creature Sayings By Charles Dickens: A mob is usually a creature of very mysterious existence, particularly in a large city.
I will not have a sea creature destroyed, if I can help it. And I can help it.Rick Riordan Sea Creature Sayings By Rick Riordan: I will not have a sea creature destroyed, if I can help it. And I
Look at the animals roaming the forest: God's spirit dwells within them. Look at the birds flying across the sky: God's spirit dwells within them. Look at the tiny insects crawling in the grass: God's spirit dwells within them. Look at the fish in the river and sea ... .There is no creature on earth in whom God is absent ... his breath had brought every creature to life ... God's spirit is present within plant as well. The presence of God's spirit in all living things is what makes them beautiful; and if we look with God's eyes, nothing on earth is ugly.Pelagius Sea Creature Sayings By Pelagius: Look at the animals roaming the forest: God's spirit dwells within them. Look at the
I like an otter. I like a sea lion. I like a walrus. That's my favorite version of a sea creature.Nick Kroll Sea Creature Sayings By Nick Kroll: I like an otter. I like a sea lion. I like a walrus. That's my
Maddie squirmed out from under him. "I'm sorry. So sorry. I know this is supposed to be physical. Impersonal. It's only that I keep thinking of lobsters."
He flipped onto his back and lay there, blinking up at the ceiling. "Until just now, I would have said there was nothing remaining that could surprise me in bed. I was wrong."
She sat up, drawing her knees to her chest. "I am the girl who made up a Scottish lover, wrote him scores of letters, and kept up an elaborate ruse for years. Does it really surprise you that I'm odd?"
"Maybe not."
"Lobsters court for months before mating. Before the male can mate with her, the female has to feel secure enough to molt out of her shell. If a spiny sea creature is worth months of effort, can't I have just a bit more time? I don't understand the urgency.
Tessa Dare Sea Creature Sayings By Tessa Dare: Maddie squirmed out from under him. "I'm sorry. So sorry. I know this is supposed
She has a human face and as far as the groin she is a girl with lovely breasts, but below she is a monstrous sea creature, her womb 430 full of wolves,Virgil Sea Creature Sayings By Virgil: She has a human face and as far as the groin she is a girl
Nothing is wasted in the sea; every particle of material is used over and over again, first by one creature, then by another. And when in spring the waters are deeply stirred, the warm bottom water brings to the surface a rich supply of minerals, ready for use by new forms of life.Rachel Carson Sea Creature Sayings By Rachel Carson: Nothing is wasted in the sea; every particle of material is used over and over
Current-borne, wave-flung, tugged hugely by the whole might of ocean, the jellyfish drifts in the tidal abyss. The light shines through it, and the dark enters it. Borne, flung, tugged from anywhere to anywhere, for in the deep sea there is no compass but nearer and farther, higher and lower, the jellyfish hangs and sways; pulses move slight and quick within it, as the vast diurnal pulses beat in the moondriven sea. Hanging, swaying, pulsing, the most vulnerable and insubstantial creature, it has for its defense the violence and power of the whole ocean, to which it has entrusted its being, its going, and its will.Ursula K. Le Guin Sea Creature Sayings By Ursula K. Le Guin: Current-borne, wave-flung, tugged hugely by the whole might of ocean, the jellyfish drifts in the
We are all walking the same path, though it ain't some road scored in earth or sky or sea. It's the path of easing suffering, both ours and that of others, and we walk it till ever creature stands free of pain and lies, in unity with truth and peace, at last enlightened and made whole.David Bowles Sea Creature Sayings By David Bowles: We are all walking the same path, though it ain't some road scored in earth
The Black was looking out on the open sea; his ears pricked forward, his thin-skinned nostrils quivering, his black mane flowing like windswept flame. Alec could not turn his eyes away; he could not believe such a perfect creature existed.Walter Farley Sea Creature Sayings By Walter Farley: The Black was looking out on the open sea; his ears pricked forward, his thin-skinned
The Tyrannosaurus rex was a creature of the jungle. She lived in the deepest forests and swamps of North America, not long after it had broken off from the ancient continent of Laurasia. Her territory encompassed more than five hundred square miles, and it stretched from the shores of the ancient Niobrara inland sea to the foothills of the newly minted Rocky Mountains.Douglas Preston Sea Creature Sayings By Douglas Preston: The Tyrannosaurus rex was a creature of the jungle. She lived in the deepest forests
You have heaven adorned, earth beautified, the sea populated with its own creatures, the air filled with birds which scour it in every direction. Studious listener, think of all these creations which God has drawn out of nothing; ... recognize everywhere the wisdom of God; never cease to wonder, and, through every creature, to glorify the Creator.Saint Basil Sea Creature Sayings By Saint Basil: You have heaven adorned, earth beautified, the sea populated with its own creatures, the air
For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.Anonymous Sea Creature Sayings By Anonymous: For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed
A few hours later, lying on a mat during rest time, Vladimir embraced the tiny curled-up creature beside him, his first best buddy, just as Mother had promised. Maybe tomorrow they could go to the Piskaryovka mass grave together with their grandmothers and lay flowers for their dead. Maybe they would even be inducted into the Red Pioneers side by side. What good fortune that he and Lionya were so alike and that neither of them had siblings ... Now they would have each other! It was as if Mother had created someone just for him, as if she had guessed how lonely he had been in his sick bed with his stuffed giraffe, the months spinning away in twilight gloom until it was June again, time to go down to sunny Yalta to watch the Black Sea dolphins jump for joy.Gary Shteyngart Sea Creature Sayings By Gary Shteyngart: A few hours later, lying on a mat during rest time, Vladimir embraced the tiny
Wherever Harry went inside the tiny cottage or its garden, he could hear the constant ebb and flow of the sea, like the breathing of some great, slumbering creature.J.K. Rowling Sea Creature Sayings By J.K. Rowling: Wherever Harry went inside the tiny cottage or its garden, he could hear the constant
If love makes you sad, you acquire a little depth, a little compassion. If it makes you happy, you learn how to be joyous. Every relationship should color your soul to a certain degree, don't you think? Every friendship, every love affair - each one should build up the chambers of your heart the way a sea creature builds the chamber of his shell.Sharon Shinn Sea Creature Sayings By Sharon Shinn: If love makes you sad, you acquire a little depth, a little compassion. If it
Psycholinguists argue about whether language reflects our perception of reality or helps create them. I am in the latter camp. Take the names we give the animals we eat. The Patagonian toothfish is a prehistoric-looking creature with teeth like needles and bulging yellowish eyes that lives in deep waters off the coast of South America. It did not catch on with sophisticated foodies until an enterprising Los Angeles importer renamed it the considerably more palatable Chilean sea bass.Hal Herzog Sea Creature Sayings By Hal Herzog: Psycholinguists argue about whether language reflects our perception of reality or helps create them. I
The impression made upon them by the first view of a camel equipped and loaded for the desert. Custom, so fatal to other novelties, affects this feeling but little. At the end of long journeys with caravans, after years of residence with the Bedawin, the Western-born, wherever they may be, will stop and wait the passing of the stately brute. The charm is not in the figure, which not even love can make beautiful; nor in the movement, the noiseless stepping, or the broad careen. As is the kindness of the sea to a ship, so that of the desert to its creature. It clothes him with all its mysteries;Lew Wallace Sea Creature Sayings By Lew Wallace: The impression made upon them by the first view of a camel equipped and loaded
I am really a sea creature. Just a mammal that lost its fins.Kathleen Quinlan Sea Creature Sayings By Kathleen Quinlan: I am really a sea creature. Just a mammal that lost its fins.
God is goodness itself, in whom all goodness is involved. If therefore we love other things for the goodness which we see in them, why do we not love God, in whom is all goodness? All other things are but sparks of that fire, and drops of that sea. If you see any good in the creature, remember there is much more in the Creator. Leave therefore the streams, and go to the fountainhead of comfort.Richard Sibbes Sea Creature Sayings By Richard Sibbes: God is goodness itself, in whom all goodness is involved. If therefore we love other
I Leave This at Your Ear For When You Wake"

I leave this at your ear for when you wake,
A creature in its abstract cage asleep.
Your dreams blindfold you by the light they make.

The owl called from the naked-woman tree
As I came down by the Kyle farm to hear
Your house silent by the speaking sea.

I have come late but I have come before
Later with slaked steps from stone to stone
To hope to find you listening for the door.

I stand in the ticking room. My dear, I take
A moth kiss from your breath. The shore gulls cry.
I leave this at your ear for when you wake.
W. S. Graham Sea Creature Sayings By W. S. Graham: I Leave This at Your Ear For When You Wake"I leave this at your ear
What an incomparable creature is the sea! ("Absolute Evil")Julian Hawthorne Sea Creature Sayings By Julian Hawthorne: What an incomparable creature is the sea! ("Absolute Evil")
It's clear that when we're this outnumbered by the creatures, we have to take a page from the British Empire and rule the lesser species through intimidation. That's why the single most important thing you can do as a human is to dominate an animal. Need more proof?
"Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living
creature that moves on the ground." I'd say that about covers it.
Stephen Colbert Sea Creature Sayings By Stephen Colbert: It's clear that when we're this outnumbered by the creatures, we have to take a
What a grin he had, what ferocious eyes, what a creature he was. He had dreamt himself an entire life and death.
Ronan said, "I want to go back."
"Then take it," said his father. "You know how now."
And Ronan did. Because Niall Lynch was a forest fire, a rising sea, a car crash, a closing curtain, a blistering symphony, a catalyst with planets inside him.
And he had given all of that to his middle son.
Maggie Stiefvater Sea Creature Sayings By Maggie Stiefvater: What a grin he had, what ferocious eyes, what a creature he was. He had
'Changes in Latitudes' began when I was looking at a photograph of a sea turtle swimming underwater. I had such a strong feeling for the beauty of this ancient creature, at home in the sea. On the spot, I wanted to swim with that turtle. I began to imagine a character who would do just that.Will Hobbs Sea Creature Sayings By Will Hobbs: 'Changes in Latitudes' began when I was looking at a photograph of a sea turtle
I took a voyage once
it is many years ago, now
to Amsterdam, and the owner, not my good cousin here, but another, took a fancy to go with me; and his wife must needs accompany him, and verily, before that voyage was over, I wished I was dead. I was no longer captain of the ship. My owner was my captain, and his wife was his. We were forever putting into port for fresh bread and meat, milk and eggs, for she could eat none other. If the wind got up but ever so little, we had to run into shelter and anchor until the sea was smooth. The manners of the sailors shocked her. She would scream at night when a rat ran across her, and would lose her appetite if a living creature, of which, as usual, the ship was full, fell from a beam onto her platter. I was tempted, more than once, to run the ship on to a rock and make an end of us all.
G.A. Henty Sea Creature Sayings By G.A. Henty: I took a voyage onceit is many years ago, nowto Amsterdam, and the owner, not
I do not know what inspires the image of a fish but it comes to me, wide eyed, open mouthed and gaping, glimmering, swimming towards me as though a creature of the darkness come to claim me. I imagine it in a twinkling blue pool. It swims through the dark currents of the sea, gliding above sea weed, beneath sunlight, augmenting and shying away from the surface. It belongs to this element between land and sky, sifts through it, a creature of the deep. My mind drifts, fades, but then comes back to the fish: its glimmering scales, its strange beady eyes. Its body is contained within the water. It opens its mouth, moving it open and closed as though it's trying to speak a language I never learned. I think about the fish's lungs, full of water. Is not the sea contained within the fish, too?Annie Fisher Sea Creature Sayings By Annie Fisher: I do not know what inspires the image of a fish but it comes to
That evening we sat in the courtyard of the hotel once more, watching the sun sink below the western isles. I told Alexi what had happened that day. I fancied I could glimpse the grey stone wall of Lismore House on its island hilltop, the red light of the setting sun glinting from the windows, and from there the wasted frame of Jonathan Blake gazing out across the sea, on nothing, his boy waiting for him to die. But it was my fantasy, simply the image on my mind, like the image burned on to your eyes when you have stared too long at the sun, the passing footprint of a creature long gone.P.B. North Sea Creature Sayings By P.B. North: That evening we sat in the courtyard of the hotel once more, watching the sun
He felt like a man in a small boat under which a huge sea creature has passed, causing the boat to pitch gently. Like a man in a boat, he could chase it or run from it, and he picked chase. If he felt it on her lips, he put his mouth on her lips. If he found it on the palm of her hand, he opened her hand and licked it up. Her soul darted here and there, sensitive as any creature, tipping her center of balance back and forth as it oscillated. She liked this, and if she had any fear, she did not take it seriously. He liked it, too, so much that he could barely concentrate on the chase.Mary Gaitskill Sea Creature Sayings By Mary Gaitskill: He felt like a man in a small boat under which a huge sea creature
The love of God. The mercy of God. The judgment of God. You take the shoes off your feet and stand as you would before a mountain or at the edge of the sea. But the friendship of God? It is not something God does. It is something Abraham and God, or Moses and God, do together. Not even God can be a friend all by himself apparently. You see Abraham, say, not standing at all but sitting down, loosening his prayer shawl, trimming the end off his cigar. He is not being Creature for the moment, and God is not being Creator. There is no agenda. They are simply being together, the two of them, and being themselves.Frederick Buechner Sea Creature Sayings By Frederick Buechner: The love of God. The mercy of God. The judgment of God. You take the
I am not a terribly physical person. Helen wasn't either. We'd never hugged or even shaken hands, so it was odd to find myself rubbing her bare shoulder and then her back. It was, I though, like stroking some sort of sea creature, the flesh slick and fatty beneath my palms. In my memory, there was something on the stove, a cauldron of tomato gravy, and the smell of it mixed with the camphor of the Tiger Balm. The windows were steamed, Tony Bennett was on the radio, and saying, 'Please,' her voice catching on the newness of the word, Helen asked me to turn it up.David Sedaris Sea Creature Sayings By David Sedaris: I am not a terribly physical person. Helen wasn't either. We'd never hugged or even
The tide will turn, Miss Willow." A smile lurked around his mouth, but no, that was not possible, that the earl of Tiern-Cope should smile, and at her.
"It hasn't yet."
"You may find the sea casts you onto the shores of paradise." His voice was low and soft, and Olivia felt her heart stir at the sound. "Or through the very gates of hell."
"So it might." She gave herself a mental shake. Lord Tiern-Cope could not possibly be flirting with her. Impossible. "But that won't stop me from embracing this moment in all its beautiful perfection."
"With but one flaw, Miss Willow."
"Whatever could that be?"
"Don't even try to tell me I don't spoil the present perfection of your moment." The corner of his lip twitched and then gave up. He smiled, and she, perverse creature that she was, felt like she'd been tossed off a cliff with him standing at the bottom to catch her.
Carolyn Jewel Sea Creature Sayings By Carolyn Jewel: The tide will turn, Miss Willow." A smile lurked around his mouth, but no, that
I've never been hurt by a sea creature, except for jellyfish and sea urchins.Peter Benchley Sea Creature Sayings By Peter Benchley: I've never been hurt by a sea creature, except for jellyfish and sea urchins.
Must we always be warned, and can we only fall on our knees when some one is there to tell us that God is passing by? If you have loved profoundly you have needed no one to tell you that your soul was a thing as great in itself as the world; that the stars, the flowers, the waves of night and sea were not solitary; that it was on the threshold of appearances that everything began, but nothing ended, and that the very lips you kissed belonged to a creature who was loftier, much purer, and much more beautiful than the one whom your arms enfolded.Maurice Maeterlinck Sea Creature Sayings By Maurice Maeterlinck: Must we always be warned, and can we only fall on our knees when some
Infanta Marina
Her terrace was the sand
And the palms and the twilight.
She made of the motions of her wrist
The grandiose gestures
Of her thought.
The rumpling of the plumes
Of this creature of the evening
Came to be sleights of sails
Over the sea.
And thus she roamed
In the roamings of her fan,
Partaking of the sea,
And of the evening,
As they flowed around
And uttered their subsiding sound.
Wallace Stevens Sea Creature Sayings By Wallace Stevens: Infanta Marina Her terrace was the sand And the palms and the twilight. She made
Before me begging did she stand, Pouring out sorrows like a sea; Grief after grief: - on English Land Such woes I knew could never be; And yet a boon I gave her; for the Creature Was beautiful to see; a Weed of glorious feature!William Wordsworth Sea Creature Sayings By William Wordsworth: Before me begging did she stand, Pouring out sorrows like a sea; Grief after grief:
A bedraggled woman stood on his doorstep in the pouring rain, and his first impulse was to slam the door in her face.
But she had clearly come as far as she could; her pale face was twisted in pain, and she shivered convulsively beneath a denim jacket that was as soaking wet as the rest of her. Long black strands of hair hung down in twisted ribbons like seaweed in the vanishing daylight, reminding him of a sea creature he'd once dated briefly in his more adventurous youth.
Deborah Blake Sea Creature Sayings By Deborah Blake: A bedraggled woman stood on his doorstep in the pouring rain, and his first impulse
I am really dedicated to understanding the planet/creature on which we live and know that means I must go beneath the sea to see 72 percent of what is going on.Robert Ballard Sea Creature Sayings By Robert Ballard: I am really dedicated to understanding the planet/creature on which we live and know that
First, by the figurations of art there be made instruments of navigation without men to row them, as great ships to brooke the sea, only with one man to steer them, and they shall sail far more swiftly than if they were full of men; also chariots that shall move with unspeakable force without any living creature to stir them. Likewise an instrument may be made to fly withall if one sits in the midst of the instrument, and do turn an engine, by which the wings, being artificially composed, may beat the air after the manner of a flying bird.Roger Bacon Sea Creature Sayings By Roger Bacon: First, by the figurations of art there be made instruments of navigation without men to
There's a flame of magic inside every stone & every flower, every bird that sings & every frog that croaks. There's magic in the trees & the hills & the river & the rocks, in the sea & the stars & the wind, a deep, wild magic that's as old as the world itself. It's in you too, my darling girl, and in me, and in every living creature, be it ever so small. Even the dirt I'm sweeping up now is stardust. In fact, all of us are made from the stuff of stars.Kate Forsyth Sea Creature Sayings By Kate Forsyth: There's a flame of magic inside every stone & every flower, every bird that sings
Poetry is a diary kept by a sea creature who lives on land and wishes he could fly.Carl Sandburg Sea Creature Sayings By Carl Sandburg: Poetry is a diary kept by a sea creature who lives on land and wishes
She had seen the almost-human Orona, who was orphaned and alone in the world, a woman whom Cain had plucked off the streets and fallen in love with. What she didn't see was the undead creature Cain barely knew, the foolish human girl who fell in love with the caretaker of the seas. She hadn't seen me stand up against a hurricane or keep a cave from crushing two lovers to death. She hadn't seen me throw myself over the ones who would have turned to ashes when the volcano erupted, or made water appear from the sands to the dying in the desert. She did not know I was both savior and destroyer to so many souls.Jennifer Silverwood Sea Creature Sayings By Jennifer Silverwood: She had seen the almost-human Orona, who was orphaned and alone in the world, a
The birds looked upon me as nothing but a man, quite a trifling creature without wings - and they would have nothing to do with me. Were it not so I would build a small cabin for myself among their crowd of nests and pass my days counting the sea waves.Rabindranath Tagore Sea Creature Sayings By Rabindranath Tagore: The birds looked upon me as nothing but a man, quite a trifling creature without
Morpheus is not his true name. He is glory and deprecation - sunlight and shadows - the scuttle of a scorpion and the melody of a nightingale. The breath of the sea and the cannonade of a storm. Can you relay birdsong, or the sound of wind, or the scurry of a creature across the sand? For the proper names of netherlings are made up of the life forces defining them. Can you speak these things with your tongue?A.G. Howard Sea Creature Sayings By A.G. Howard: Morpheus is not his true name. He is glory and deprecation - sunlight and shadows
What will the creature made all of sea-drift do on the dry sand of daylight; what will the mind do, each morning, waking? HisUrsula K. Le Guin Sea Creature Sayings By Ursula K. Le Guin: What will the creature made all of sea-drift do on the dry sand of daylight;
I pace the shallow sea, walking the time between, reflecting on the type of fossil I'd like to be. I guess I'd like my bones to be replaced by some vivid chert, a red ulna or radius, or maybe preserved as the track of some lug-soled creature locked in the sandstone- how did it walk, what did it eat, and did it love sunshine?Ann Zwinger Sea Creature Sayings By Ann Zwinger: I pace the shallow sea, walking the time between, reflecting on the type of fossil
Every creature aflame as it swims through the night! How sea, how shore's held in a burning embrace! Then let Eros reign with whom all things commence! Hurrah for the ocean! Hurrah for the waves 8770 And their crests with the sacred fire ablaze! Hurrah for the water, hurrah for the fire, Hurrah for their union, so rare, with each other! ALL TOGETHER. Hurrah for the gentle caressing breezes! Hurrah for the caves and their secret recesses! Lift up our voices in praise of the four: Water, fire, earth, and air!Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe Sea Creature Sayings By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe: Every creature aflame as it swims through the night! How sea, how shore's held in
THERE ARE ... ENEMIES, said Death, as Binky galloped through icy mountains. "They're all dead - " OTHER ENEMIES. YOU MAY AS WELL KNOW THIS. DOWN IN THE DEEPEST KINGDOMS OF THE SEA, WHERE THERE IS NO LIGHT, THERE LIVES A TYPE OF CREATURE WITH NO BRAIN AND NO EYES AND NO MOUTH. IT DOES NOTHING BUT LIVE AND PUT FORTH PETALS OF PERFECT CRIMSON WHERE NONE ARE THERE TO SEE. IT IS NOTHING EXCEPT A TINY YES IN THE NIGHT. AND YET ... AND YET ... IT HAS ENEMIES THAT BEAR ON IT A VICIOUS, UNBENDING MALICE, WHO WISH NOT ONLY FOR ITS TINY LIFE TO BE OVER BUT ALSO THAT IT HAD NEVER EXISTED. ARE YOU WITH ME SO FAR? "Well, yes, but - " GOOD. NOW, IMAGINE WHAT THEY THINK OF HUMANITY.Terry Pratchett Sea Creature Sayings By Terry Pratchett: THERE ARE ... ENEMIES, said Death, as Binky galloped through icy mountains. "They're all dead
Let us suppose that an ichthyologist is exploring the life of the ocean. He casts a net into the water and brings up a fishy assortment. Surveying his catch, he proceeds in the usual manner of a scientist to systematize what it reveals. He arrives at two generalizations:
(1) No sea-creature is less than two inches long.
(2) All sea-creatures have gills.
These are both true of his catch, and he assumes tentatively that they will remain true however often he repeats it.
Arthur Eddington Sea Creature Sayings By Arthur Eddington: Let us suppose that an ichthyologist is exploring the life of the ocean. He casts
Could one live on the sense of beauty alone, exempt from the necessity of 'creature comforts,' a sea-voyage would be delightful.Bayard Taylor Sea Creature Sayings By Bayard Taylor: Could one live on the sense of beauty alone, exempt from the necessity of 'creature
But since Pontus [the Sea] was male, only the sea creatures that lived in the sea could aspire to be Aphrodite's mother. And it was for this reason that Aphrodite's birth was delayed for so long. As Himeros & Chaos did not want to be born by a sea creature. And thus, Uranus' seed & testicles tossed & tossed on the waves for hundreds of years before Himeros & Chaos reached a compromise. Aphrodite would be born from a cockle, Konche, & Himeros & Chaos would be the shell of the baby cockle.Nicholas Chong Sea Creature Sayings By Nicholas Chong: But since Pontus [the Sea] was male, only the sea creatures that lived in the
