Chase Stone
"To gaze into the depths of the sea is, in the imagination, like beholding the vast unknown, and from its most terrible point of view. The submarine gulf is analogous to the realm of night and dreams. There also is sleep, unconsciousness, or at least apparent unconsciousness, of creation. There in the awful silence and darkness, the rude first forms of life, phantomlike, demoniacal, pursue their horrible instincts.."
- Victor Hugo

- Graham Hawkes
 
Paul Cox
"t wasn't gloom at all, really. There were lights and colors. If it hadn't been for the feel of the water gliding by against his skin he might have imagined himself up in the sky, with meteors and comets blazing past. But these were sea-things, shining in the dark, the luminous life that blazes beneath the southern sea."
-Henry Kuttner

"I'm always happy when I'm surrounded by water, I think I'm a mermaid or I was a mermaid. The ocean makes me feel really small and it makes me put my whole life into perspective... it humbles you and makes you feel almost like you've been baptized. I feel born again when I get out of the ocean.."
-Beyonce Knowles

- Walt Whitman
