With this photo of the sea from last year I am combining the challenges Nature Tuesday and Color Crazy. Here are a few quotes I like and I think go well with the image:
The heart of man is very much like the sea, it has its storms, it has its tides and in its depths it has its pearls too
Vincent van Gogh
There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.
How foolish to believe we are more powerful than the sea or the sky.
Do you have any quote related to the sea you’d like to add? Also, take a look at my post Ship Quotes.
Will you share a quote related to the sky?
Do you enjoy reading such quotes?

I love the sea.
The sea is wide, deep and endless, like a loving thought. He embraces you all and you have to surrender to him, because that is the only way you will feel him, only that he will truly be yours.
These are such beautiful words, thank you!
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), it’s always our self we find in the sea.
That’s a great thought, thank you for sharing!
My mother used to tell you that you could always find something to make you happy. In prison, when the sky was turning red and a new day was sneaking into my cell, I knew it was right.
I like the sea and this photo is great for both challenges.
Thank you so much for your kind words and for the inspiring quote you shared!
another Ellie Mash-Up Challenge (or is it Challenge Mash-Up?)
Meet me where the sky touches the sea. Wait for me where the world begins.
Either works, haha.
Thank you for sharing these beautiful words!
There are so many quotes about the sea it was hard to choose just one!
That’s true, nature is very inspiring.
perhaps it is time for the Mashup color quote challenge?
That’s a pretty good idea! We have color-related songs, so why not some quotes too.
Great picture and great quotes, dear Ellie
Thank you so much for your kind, dear Lado!
With great pleasure, dear Ellie
“The voice of the sea speaks to the soul.”
Kate Chopin, (1850 to 1904) an American author said this one.
I would say that this voice of the sea speaks, and always speaks, when love is listening.
This is the sea of love, which flows in both you, and the world.
These are beautiful words, both Kate Chopin’s and yours. Thank you!
It is so nice to let beautiful words wash over us, and they help us to cleanse our souls, so to speak.
Digressing a bit you took me to the song ‘Moon River’ sung by Audrey Hepburn. (Breakfast at Tiffany’s)
That’s a beautiful song, thank you!
In the poll I meant quotes about the sea instead of “sky”, but sky quotes are fine too.
