The ocean is the lifeblood of our world. If we were to lose our fish that we appreciate so much by overfishing; or if we were to lose some of our favorite beaches to overbuilding and pollution, then how would we feel? It's become a case of not knowing what you've got until it's gone. open_in_new

The oceans are more or less in disrepair. Long Beach really is making an effort to acknowledge this, and that's a great place to start. I'm trying to spread at least the knowledge that it's never too early to take care of our oceans and our environment. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Not all paintings are abstract; they're not all Jackson Pollock. There's value in a photograph of a man alone on a boat at sea, and there is value in painting of a man alone on a boat at sea. In the painting, the painting has more freedom to express an idea, more latitude in being able to elicit certain emotion. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

From about 700 B.C. to A.D. 500, the vast territory of Scythia, stretching from the Black Sea to China, was home to diverse but culturally related nomads.

Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

In the 'Revelation Space' books, the spaceships are a bit old and rusty, and things go wrong, and they don't work quite how they're meant to.

You have to think of your career the way you look at the ocean, deciding which wave you're gonna take and which waves you're not gonna take.

No one predicted Mercury would be a planetary core with the mantle stripped off. No one predicted volcanoes on the Jovian moons, or oceans on the inside of them. I can tell you, for every single planet, huge 'we never guessed that' things. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Most of the Amazon basin is as flat as a pancake and laced with extravagantly meandering waterways.

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

The plumbing and pluvial dynamics of the Amazon, the largest freshwater system on Earth, are still far from understood. This is partly because it is a semi-open system.

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I have always had the sea as my playground. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

On life's vast ocean diversely we sail. Reasons the card, but passion the gale. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I really appreciate Frank Ocean's lyrical style, I appreciate the way that he can kind of draw you into this personal space, but it's still lyrical. It's almost poetic, in a way, but it's very personal at the same time. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I once had an Early Girl tomato at my friend Jay's house, and I thought that was the best thing I'd ever had. But then I visited friends in Senegal, and I ate sea urchin pulled fresh out of the sea. It tasted like the ocean. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

The sea has this contradictory quality, that the more you see of it, the more it overwhelms the eye and disappears in its own brightness. Like a flame, whose meaning is light but whose centre is dark, it demands to be undefined. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Seeing that our thirst was increasing and the water was killing us, while the storm did not abate, we agreed to trust to God, Our Lord, and rather risk the perils of the sea than wait there for certain death from thirst. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

My closet is a sea of black pants, skirts, tops, and bags, so it's great to come across a brand that makes me want to break out of my fashion rut! The Sequence Collection is an accessories line that is all about color, from funky woven bracelets to brightly-patterned bags. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

My preferred environment is by the sea or somewhere rural. I don't want to be in a city, I don't want to visit New York and I don't want to go shopping. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

But The Same Sea is set precisely in this Israel, which never makes it to the news headlines anywhere. It is a novel about everyday people far removed from fundamentalism, fanaticism nationalism, or militancy of any sort. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I wrote The Same Sea not as a political allegory about Israelis and Palestinians. I wrote it about something much more gutsy and immediate. I wrote it as a piece of chamber music. open_in_new

Beyond the borders of wealthy countries like the United States, in developing countries where most people in the world live, the impacts of climate change are much more deadly, from the growing desertification of Africa to the threats of rising sea levels and the submersion of small island nations. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

The advice I am giving always to all my students is above all to study the music profoundly... music is like the ocean, and the instruments are little or bigger islands, very beautiful for the flowers and trees. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I got the wake-up call that no one is policing our oceans. I wondered, how can I do anything? What really can I do to make things better? There are some perks to being a celebrity. My job is to be funny once in a while, but it's my responsibility to make good use of it. open_in_new

I have spent many hours on the beach collecting sea glass, and I almost always wonder, as I bend to pick up chunk of bottle green or a shard of meringue white, what the history of the glass was. Who used it? Was it a medicine bottle? A bit of a ship's lantern? Is that bubbled piece of glass with the charred bits inside it from a fire? open_in_new
