Famous quotes containing the word waves:
“Flow, flow the waves hated,
The waves of mutation:
No anchorage is.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)

lost to the world bearing what they cannot hold. Broken,

they cry out, failing, failing! their cries rising
in waves still as the skillful yachts pass over.”
—William Carlos Williams (18831963)
“There are no waves without wind.”
