Beach


After a visit to the beach, it’s hard to believe that we live in a material world. - Pam Shaw

At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun. - Unknown

Every time I stand before a beautiful beach, its waves seem to whisper to me: If you choose the simple things and find joy in nature’s simple treasures, life and living need not be so hard. - Psyche Roxas-Mendoza

I could never stay long enough on the shore; the tang of the untainted, fresh, and free sea air was like a cool, quieting thought. - Helen Keller

I have always loved the beach. The smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm. - Unknown

In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans. - Kahlil Gibran

It’s hard for me to put into words why I like the beach so much. Everything about it is renewing for me, almost like therapy…Beach Therapy. -  Amy Dykens

On the beach, you can live in bliss. - Dennis Wilson

Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone. - Unknown

The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea. - Isak Dinesen

The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul. - Wyland

The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace. - Kate Chopin

Total physical and mental inertia are highly agreeable, much more so than we allow ourselves to imagine. A beach not only permits such inertia but enforces it, thus neatly eliminating all problems of guilt. It is now the only place in our overly active world that does. - John Kenneth Galbraith

When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused. - Rainer Maria Rilke

Why do we love the sea? It is because it has some potent power to make us think things we like to think. - Robert Henri
