Quotes with a sea breeze

Last Sunday instead of only walking along the beach we walked uphill in Sumner in Christchurch to enjoy the amazing views.

Imagine a light breeze in your hair, the sun warming your skin, hear the waves crushing into the shore, take in the view and contemplate the quotes.

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add colour to my sunset sky. Rabindranath Tagore.

Don't let the waves of others frown out your own ocean song. Hold your heart as though it was a seashell. And listen to it. Listen to its music. To the whispers of your ocean within. And than swim. Swim to your own ocean music. S.C. Lourie

If you run after things, nothing will come to you
Let things run after you
The sea never sends an invitation to the rivers.
That's why they run to the sea.
The sea is content.
It doesn't want anything.
That's the secret in life.
Swami Satchidananda

As the sea swallowed the sun once more, A tear fell from her eyes and dissolved in the sand beneath us "What is it, why the tears," I asked And with a smile that nearly leaped across the cheeks she answered:" Here comes the moon." I knew within that moment that it is, The most simple things that plant the most phenomenal truths inside us. Christopher Poindexter.

You can never cross the ocean unless you
have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
Christopher Columbus
I crave the ones who've seen confusion and know struggle ,who have pulled themselves up from the shackles of heartache and strife ,disappointment and darkness ,exhaustion and drain and have risen with a heart as open and unwaveringly wide as the ocean itself. Give me those people. The brave ,the vulnerable, the wise, the ones who cares for a world and how to better it along with themselves. To know their ability in making waves in shifting patterns with tides and in creating change. Let us become that open ocean....And make it rise . Victoria Erickson
