Famous quotes containing the words escort and/or ocean:

    When you escort someone, escort him all the way to his destination; if you help someone, help him thoroughly.
    Chinese proverb.

    I know only one person who ever crossed the ocean without feeling it, either spiritually or physically.... he went from Oklahoma to France and back again ... without ever getting off dry land. He remembers several places I remember too, and several French words, but he says firmly, “We must of went different ways. I don’t rightly recollect no water, ever.”
    M.F.K. Fisher (1908–1992)
