Famous quotes containing the word strand:

    The annals of this voracious beach! who could write them, unless it were a shipwrecked sailor? How many who have seen it have seen it only in the midst of danger and distress, the last strip of earth which their mortal eyes beheld. Think of the amount of suffering which a single strand had witnessed! The ancients would have represented it as a sea-monster with open jaws, more terrible than Scylla and Charybdis.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
    There is no happiness like mine.
    I have been eating poetry.
    —Mark Strand (b. 1934)
