Famous quotes containing the words waves and/or brain:

    And the waves sing because they are moving.
    And the waves sing above a cemetery of waters.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    The true charm of pedestrianism does not lie in the walking, or in the scenery, but in the talking. The walking is good to time the movement of the tongue by, and to keep the blood and the brain stirred up and active; the scenery and the woodsy smells are good to bear in upon a man an unconscious and unobtrusive charm and solace to eye and soul and sense; but the supreme pleasure comes from the talk.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
