Famous quotes containing the words south sea, sea and/or south:

    The birch stripped of its bark, or the charred stump where a tree has been burned down to be made into a canoe,—these are the only traces of man, a fabulous wild man to us. On either side, the primeval forest stretches away uninterrupted to Canada, or to the “South Sea”; to the white man a drear and howling wilderness, but to the Indian a home, adapted to his nature, and cheerful as the smile of the Great Spirit.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    ... here hundreds sit and play Bingo; here the bright lights of Broadway burn through a sea haze; here Somebodies tumble over other Somebodies and over Nobodies as well.
    —For the State of New Jersey, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    There are two places in the world where men can most effectively disappear—the city of London and the South Seas.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
