Unforgettable Cape Cod Vacations The National Seashore Gift

Famous quotes containing the words seashore, national and/or cape:

    The seashore is a sort of neutral ground, a most advantageous point from which to contemplate this world. It is even a trivial place. The waves forever rolling to the land are too far-traveled and untamable to be familiar. Creeping along the endless beach amid the sun-squall and the foam, it occurs to us that we, too, are the product of sea-slime.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I foresee the time when the painter will paint that scene, no longer going to Rome for a subject; the poet will sing it; the historian record it; and, with the Landing of the Pilgrims and the Declaration of Independence, it will be the ornament of some future national gallery, when at least the present form of slavery shall be no more here. We shall then be at liberty to weep for Captain Brown. Then, and not till then, we will take our revenge.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Round the cape of a sudden came the sea,
    And the sun looked over the mountain’s rim:
    And straight was a path of gold for him,
    And the need of a world of men for me.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)
