Famous quotes containing the words ocean, indian and/or south:

    the ocean, under the pulsation of lighthouses and noise of bell
    buoys,
    advances as usual, looking as if it were not that ocean in which
    dropped things are bound to sink—
    in which if they turn and twist, it is neither with volition nor
    consciousness.
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)

    But we, in anchor-watches calm,
    The Indian Psyche’s languor won,
    And, musing, breathed primeval balm
    From Edens ere yet over-run;
    Marvelling mild if mortal twice,
    Here and hereafter, touch a Paradise.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Only let the North exert as much moral influence over the South, as the South has exerted demoralizing influence over the North, and slavery would die amid the flame of Christian remonstrance, and faithful rebuke, and holy indignation.
    Angelina Grimké (1805–1879)
