    Really, there is no infidelity, nowadays, so great as that which prays, and keeps the Sabbath, and rebuilds the churches. The sealer of the South Pacific preaches a truer doctrine.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is the sea that whitens the roof.
    The sea drifts through the winter air.

    The sea is in the falling snow.

    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
