Deep?

“People on the land think of the sea as a void, an emptiness haunted by mythological hazards. The sea marks the end of things. It is where life stops and the unknown begins…”

[Jonathan Raban: ‘Coasting’]

“Wind is full of this mystery. So too is the sea. Like wind, it is composite in nature; under the waves of water, which we can see, are waves of force which we cannot see. Its constituents are-everything. Of all the jumbles of matter in the world the sea is the most indivisible and the most profound”

[Victor Hugo: ‘The Toilers Of The Sea’]

“In every outthrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth.”
