It was the year 878, I was twenty-one years old and believed my swords could win me the whole world. I was Uhtred of Bebbanburg, the man who had killed Ubba Lothbrokson beside the sea and who had spilled Svein of the White Horse from his saddle at Ethandun. I was the man who had given Alfred his kingdom back and I hated him. So I would leave him. My path was the sword-path, and it would take me home. I would go north.Bernard Cornwell Sea Horse Sayings By Bernard Cornwell: It was the year 878, I was twenty-one years old and believed my swords could
Only an idiot would trust a Kelpie this close to the water. Getting on its back with the scent of the sea in the air would be a fast, painful means of suicide, and I'm not a fan of pain.Seanan McGuire Sea Horse Sayings By Seanan McGuire: Only an idiot would trust a Kelpie this close to the water. Getting on its
The mortality rate among sea horses is not to be believed. Because the difference between a dead sea horse and a living sea horse is imperceptible, selling dead sea horses would make a very good pet store scam.Sloane Crosley Sea Horse Sayings By Sloane Crosley: The mortality rate among sea horses is not to be believed. Because the difference between
Old English poetry also contained a wide range of conventional poetic diction, many of the words being created to allow alliterative patterns to be made. There are therefore numerous alternatives for key words like battle, warrior, horse, ship, the sea, prince, and so on. Some are decorative periphrases: a king can be a 'giver of rings' or a 'giver of treasure' (literally, a king was expected to provide his warriors with gifts after they had fought for him).Ronald Carter Sea Horse Sayings By Ronald Carter: Old English poetry also contained a wide range of conventional poetic diction, many of the
"Chaunt in his ear delusions magical,
That he may fight the horses of the sea."
The Druids took them to their mystery,
And chaunted for three days.
William Butler Yeats Sea Horse Sayings By William Butler Yeats: "Chaunt in his ear delusions magical,That he may fight the horses of the sea."The Druids
Sea horses have complicated routines for courtship, and tend to mate under full moons, making musical sounds while doing so. They live in long-term monogamous partnerships. What is perhaps most unusual, though, is that it is the male sea horse that carries the young for up to six weeks. Males become properly "pregnant," not only carrying, but fertilizing and nourishing the developing eggs with fluid secretions. The image of males giving birth is perpetually mind-blowing: a turbid liquid bursts forth from the brood pouch, and like magic, minuscule but fully formed sea horses appear out of the cloud.Jonathan Safran Foer Sea Horse Sayings By Jonathan Safran Foer: Sea horses have complicated routines for courtship, and tend to mate under full moons, making
With flowing tail and flying mane,
Wide nostrils never stretched by pain,
Mouth bloodless to bit or rein,
And feet that iron never shod,
And flanks unscar'd by spur or rod,
A thousand horses - the wild - the free -
Like waves that follow o'er the sea,
Came thickly thundering on.
Lord Byron Sea Horse Sayings By Lord Byron: With flowing tail and flying mane,Wide nostrils never stretched by pain,Mouth bloodless to bit or
Where now are the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the harp on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.
Who shall gather the smoke of the deadwood burning,
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?
J.R.R. Tolkien Sea Horse Sayings By J.R.R. Tolkien: Where now are the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?Where
May's haircuts were Marblehead's version of a magic show. The townie kids used to form lines up and down Front Street to watch as Mr. Dooling pulled the rattail comb through my mother's hair. With each pull, the comb would snag on something, then stop. As he reached into the mass to unwind the tangle, he would find and remove everything from sea glass to shells to smooth stones. In one particularly matted tangle, he found a sea horse. Once he even found a postcard sent from Tahiti to someone in Beverly Farms.Brunonia Barry Sea Horse Sayings By Brunonia Barry: May's haircuts were Marblehead's version of a magic show. The townie kids used to form
With their ship, the Horse, They ply the sea of grass, They stalk the walking mountains, With stones they make their beds.Greg Keyes Sea Horse Sayings By Greg Keyes: With their ship, the Horse, They ply the sea of grass, They stalk the walking
The wave came again and carried them out onto the sea of pain, where he wondered again why life ever came into the world...The tide that drew them out into the troubled waters once again spent itself, and they floated slowly back, resting for a minute or so, only to be dragged out again. He held her up while she contracted and pushed inside herself, trying to open the petals of her flowering body...He lifted her, trying to free the load she was struggling with, but she was straining against the traces, getting nowhere, her eyes like those of a draft horse...Who would choose this, thought Laski, this work, this woe? Life enslaves us, makes us want children, gives us a thousand illusions about love, and all so that it can go forward.William Kotzwinkle Sea Horse Sayings By William Kotzwinkle: The wave came again and carried them out onto the sea of pain, where he
One winter evening an old knight in rusted chain-armour rode slowly along the woody southern slope of Ben Bulben, watching the sun go down in crimson clouds over the sea. His horse was tired, as after a long journey, and he had upon his helmet the crest of no neighbouring lord or king, but a small rose made of rubies that glimmered every moment to a deeper crimson. His white hair fell in thin curls upon his shoulders, and its disorder added to the melancholy of his face, which was the face of one of those who have come but seldom into the world, and always for its trouble, the dreamers who must do what they dream, the doers who must dream what they doW.B.Yeats Sea Horse Sayings By W.B.Yeats: One winter evening an old knight in rusted chain-armour rode slowly along the woody southern
I whisper like the sea in the horse's ear.Maggie Stiefvater Sea Horse Sayings By Maggie Stiefvater: I whisper like the sea in the horse's ear.

The firstdown team for this planet must have had a fixation on animals. Horse, Bear, Eagle. For three days we were creeping down the east coast of Equus over an irregular coastline called the Mane. We've spent the last day making the crossing of a short span of the Middle Sea to a large island called Cat Key. Today we are offloading passengers and freight at Felix, the "major city" of the island.Dan Simmons Sea Horse Sayings By Dan Simmons: The firstdown team for this planet must have had a fixation on animals. Horse, Bear,
I managed to find a spot where we had the wind from astern, a steep head sea on our starboard quarter and the tide race through the narrows at the same time. A few hours of that and our fierce horse soldiers were like little lambs - sick little lambs.John Flanagan Sea Horse Sayings By John Flanagan: I managed to find a spot where we had the wind from astern, a steep
History is a living horse laughing at a wooden horse. History is a wind blowing where it listeth. History is no sure thing to bet on. History is a box of tricks with a lost key. History is a labyrinth of doors with sliding panels, a book of ciphers with the code in a cave of the Saragossa sea. History says, if it pleases, Excuse me, I beg your pardon, it will never happen again if I can help it.Carl Sandburg Sea Horse Sayings By Carl Sandburg: History is a living horse laughing at a wooden horse. History is a wind blowing
I have a birthmark on the inside of my left knee that resembles an upside-down sea horse.Gabourey Sidibe Sea Horse Sayings By Gabourey Sidibe: I have a birthmark on the inside of my left knee that resembles an upside-down
Three Songs 1 Mountain. I whip my quick horse and don't dismount and look back in wonder. The sky is three feet away. 2 Mountain. The sea collapses and the river boils. Innumerable horses race insanely into the peak of battle. 3 Mountain. Peaks pierce the green sky, unblunted. The sky would fall but for the columns of mountains.Mao Zedong Sea Horse Sayings By Mao Zedong: Three Songs 1 Mountain. I whip my quick horse and don't dismount and look back
And there was shame in being human: the shame of knowing that twenty of the roughly thirty-five classified species of sea horse worldwide are threatened with extinction because they are killed "unintentionally" in seafood production.Jonathan Safran Foer Sea Horse Sayings By Jonathan Safran Foer: And there was shame in being human: the shame of knowing that twenty of the
This is true happiness: to have no ambition and to work like a horse as if you had every ambition. To live far from men, not to need them and yet to love them. To have the stars above, the land to your left and the sea to your right and to realize of a sudden that in your heart, life has accomplished its final miracle: it has become a fairy tale.Nikos Kazantzakis Sea Horse Sayings By Nikos Kazantzakis: This is true happiness: to have no ambition and to work like a horse as
Yet I was a fool to fancy for a moment that she valued Edgar Linton's attachment more than mine
If he love with all the powers of his puny being, he couldn't love as much in eighty years, as I could in a day. And Catherine has a heart as deep as I have; the sea could be as readily contained in that horse-trough, as her whole affection be monopolized by him
Tush! He is scarcely a degree dearer to her than her dog, or her horse
It is not in him to be loved like me, how can she love in him what he has not?
Emily Bronte Sea Horse Sayings By Emily Bronte: Yet I was a fool to fancy for a moment that she valued Edgar Linton's
I should've known Gideon would spill. He's like a surrogate parent. Not like a stepfather, exactly - more like a godfather, or a sea horse who wants to stuff me into his pouch.Kendare Blake Sea Horse Sayings By Kendare Blake: I should've known Gideon would spill. He's like a surrogate parent. Not like a stepfather,
I said, 'I have heard people talk about war as if it was a very fine thing.'
Ah!' said [Captain], 'I should think they never saw it. No doubt it is very fine when there is no enemy, when it is just exercise and parade, and sham-fight. Yes, it is very fine then; but when thousands of good brave men and horses are killed, or crippled for life, it has a very different look.'
Do you know what they fought about?' said I.
No,' he said, 'that is more than a horse can understand, but the enemy must have been awfully wicked people, if it was right to go all that way over the sea on purpose to kill them.
Anna Sewell Sea Horse Sayings By Anna Sewell: I said, 'I have heard people talk about war as if it was a very
I ride over my beautiful ranch. Betwen my legs is a beautiful horse.
The air is wine. The grapes on a score of rolling hills are red with autumn flame.
Across Sonoma Mountain, wisps of sea fog are stealing.
The afternoon sun smolders in the drowsy sky.
I have everything to make me glad I am alive.
Jack London Sea Horse Sayings By Jack London: I ride over my beautiful ranch. Betwen my legs is a beautiful horse.The air is
Generation on generation, your neck rubbed the windowsill
of the stall, smoothing the wood as the sea smooths glass.

Mother of the Sun, Theia of many names, for your sake men honor gold as more powerful than anything else; and through the value you bestow on them, o queen, ships contending on the sea and yoked teams of horses in swift-whirling contests become marvels.Pindar Sea Horse Sayings By Pindar: Mother of the Sun, Theia of many names, for your sake men honor gold as
Theistic equivalent of slapstick or a clumsy God or perhaps one sneezing or kicking up a pebble - can account considerably better for our present situation than can an intentional act of Creation. The humanlike God we're prone to worshipping could be a long-dead intergalactic sea horse that, rooting through an ancient seabed for plankton in some unknown dimension, incidentally dislodged the one grain of sand that held all of our own infinite cosmos intact.Jesse Bering Sea Horse Sayings By Jesse Bering: Theistic equivalent of slapstick or a clumsy God or perhaps one sneezing or kicking up
What an amazing thing is the coming of spring to London. The very pavements seem ready to crack and lift under the denied earth; in the air is a consciousness of life which tells you that if traffic stopped for a fortnight grass would grow again in Piccadilly and corn would spring in pavement cracks where a horse had spilt his 'feed'. And the squares of London, so dingy and black since the first October gale, fill week by week with the rising tide of life, just as the sea, running up the creeks and pushing itself forward inch by inch towards the land, comes at last to each remote rock pool.H.V. Morton Sea Horse Sayings By H.V. Morton: What an amazing thing is the coming of spring to London. The very pavements seem
Thus, if there is anyone who is confident that he can advise me as to the best advantage of the state in this campaign which I am about to conduct, let him not refuse his services to the state, but come with me into Macedonia. I will furnish him with his sea-passage, with a horse, a tent, and even travel-funds. If anyone is reluctant to do this and prefers the leisure of the city to the hardships of campaigning, let him not steer the ship from on shore.Livy Sea Horse Sayings By Livy: Thus, if there is anyone who is confident that he can advise me as to
One of their last days in unbroken country, the wind was blowing in the high Indian grass, and her father said, "There's your gold, Dahlia, the real article." As usual, she threw him a speculative look, knowing by then roughly what an alchemist was, and that none of that shifty crew ever spoke straight - their words always meant something else, sometimes even because the "something else" really was beyond words, maybe in the way departed souls are beyond the world. She watched the invisible force at work among the million stalks tall as a horse and rider, flowing for miles under the autumn suns, greater than breath, than tidal lullabies, the necessary rhythms of a sea hidden far from any who would seek it. TheyThomas Pynchon Sea Horse Sayings By Thomas Pynchon: One of their last days in unbroken country, the wind was blowing in the high
Riding upon the back of a waterhorse - what mortal had ever stayed in such a seat for so long? On a horse made of cold currents and liquid convergences, jests and trickery - pressed against a hide like the burnished sea of midnight, thing look different to the rider.Cecilia Dart-Thornton Sea Horse Sayings By Cecilia Dart-Thornton: Riding upon the back of a waterhorse - what mortal had ever stayed in such
Vampire sea horse monkeys? Are you serious?Colleen Houck Sea Horse Sayings By Colleen Houck: Vampire sea horse monkeys? Are you serious?
She gave a short laugh to throw him off track. "It so happens I am a trifle more sophisticated than that. I hardly go about mooning and cultivating romantic notions of heroic knights sweeping me away to unknown isles aboard stolen ships."
He smiled. "A knight rode a horse, my dear; he was not a sea captain.
Linda Lee Chaikin Sea Horse Sayings By Linda Lee Chaikin: She gave a short laugh to throw him off track. "It so happens I am
Green how I love you green. Green wind. Green boughs. The ship on the sea And the horse on the mountain.Federico Garcia Lorca Sea Horse Sayings By Federico Garcia Lorca: Green how I love you green. Green wind. Green boughs. The ship on the sea
Crying and scratching. They are both supposed to offer relief, but they don't. My muscles feel bruised and my bones hurt where they get near my skin. I am happiest when I'm typing. And then I push the typewriter off my lap and curl my body around it like a sea horse and fall asleep like Esther, konwing that when I wake up, things will be more or lest exactly the same.Arlaina Tibensky Sea Horse Sayings By Arlaina Tibensky: Crying and scratching. They are both supposed to offer relief, but they don't. My muscles

Earth and sea merged, the sea tossed itself in the air in a fantastic dance, into the shapes of men and horses and tattered banners. I stood in the lee of an overhanging rock and thought of many things.Knut Hamsun Sea Horse Sayings By Knut Hamsun: Earth and sea merged, the sea tossed itself in the air in a fantastic dance,
Days and months are travellers of eternity. So are the years that pass by. Those who steer a boat across the sea, or drive a horse over the earth till they succumb to the weight of years, spend every minute of their lives travelling. There are a great number of ancients, too, who died on the road. I myself have been tempted for a long time by the cloud-moving wind - filled with a strong desire to wander.Matsuo Basho Sea Horse Sayings By Matsuo Basho: Days and months are travellers of eternity. So are the years that pass by. Those
With his back to us, Sean tugs the halter from the mare's head. She kicks out, but he steps out of the way as if it were nothing at all. With a shake of her mane, she leaps mightily into the water. For a moment she struggles over the waves, and then she is swimming. Just a wild black horse in a deep blue sea full of the ashes of other dead boys.Maggie Stiefvater Sea Horse Sayings By Maggie Stiefvater: With his back to us, Sean tugs the halter from the mare's head. She kicks

Mountains!
I whip my swift horse, glued to my saddle.
I turn my head startled,
The sky is three foot three above me!*

II

Mountains!
Like great waves surging in a crashing sea,
Like a thousand stallions
In full gallop in the heat of battle.

III

Mountains!
Piercing the blue of heaven, your barbs unblunted!
The skies would fall
But for your strength supporting.
