Famous quotes containing the words beach and/or long:

    They will tell you tough stories of sharks all over the Cape, which I do not presume to doubt utterly,—how they will sometimes upset a boat, or tear it in pieces, to get at the man in it. I can easily believe in the undertow, but I have no doubt that one shark in a dozen years is enough to keep up the reputation of a beach a hundred miles long.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    No, I regret nothing, all I regret is having been born, dying is such a long tiresome business I always found.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)
