A summer morning by the sea...if there's anything that can make a world-weary heart
feel fresh and new again, it's a summer morning by the sea.  
-- Ronald Brunet

the United States, but a few are from Brighton Beach in Melbourne, Australia.
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.  -- Henry David Thoreau
If time and circumstance should take me far
From my sea-swept home -- each June I'd know
A same sweet pain that swelled within my heart,
When summer set the sand dunes all aglow.
The box of seashells gathered in my youth
Would, for a moment, hold a sandy lane
By dunes and fence and sails and seabird's call,
And I would close my eyes and walk it once again.
--  C. G. Berry
Anne had the golden summer of her life; she walked and rowed and sailed and
dreamed by the sea to her heart's content.  
-- L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

estimate what we see by the cost of the ticket.
-- James Russell Lowell
Grief fades, joy comes...we don't know why or how, but
everything seems better at the seashore.  
-- Matthew Clarke
Patience...patience is what the sea teaches.  -- Ann Lindbergh
There is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing
more than what we would see with our own eyes; but there is another in which
it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.  
-- Dorothea Lange
Stop a moment and look around you.  -- Thomas Carlyle
