We now know that we cannot continue to put ever-increasing amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. Actions have consequences. In fact, the consequences of past actions are already in the pipeline. Global temperatures are rising. Glaciers are melting. Sea levels are rising. Extreme weather events are multiplying.
Emissions of greenhouse gases warm the planet, altering the carbon and water cycles. A warmer ocean stores more heat, providing more fuel for hurricanes. A warmer atmosphere holds more water, bringing dangerous deluges. Rising sea levels threaten coastal zones.
My connections and roots to this land of Australia – the sea, the reefs, the sky, the stars – come from a time and place that existed long before basketball was invented, and definitely long before the Boomers program was created.
With the exception of octopus, I don’t think I’ve met any food that I didn’t like. And by the way, sometimes I do like octopus. I’m just not crazy about it by itself. I love sea urchin. I love uni. If I’m going to die of anything, it’s going to be gluttony.
There is no sea more dangerous than the ocean of practical politics none in which there is more need of good pilotage and of a single, unfaltering purpose when the waves rise high.
I spent my whole childhood being told, ‘Israel is surrounded by enemies who are trying to push it into the sea.’ But can’t Gaza feel the same way? Personally, I’m frozen in time.

If I had to name one book that has had the most lasting influence on my work, I would pick ‘The Big Sea’ by Langston Hughes.
Sea mammals, in particular, have evolved to take advantage of how well and far sound can travel under water, and to compensate for poor visibility in the dark deep.

With new oil and gas discoveries, Africa’s energy exporters will have to invest in defence capability and work with other Indian Ocean powers to ensure security of sea lanes.
Every single moment in ‘Hereditary’ is linked to a moment in the end for the payoff. I think it has the ability of captivating people the same way that ‘Manchester By the Sea’ did. It has that audience because it’s so wrapped in human drama.
I don’t know if you saw the parting of the Red Sea with the chariots on the horses, I did stuff like that.
Old friends call me Sea Salt, because my last name is Salter. Or Cocoa, cause my real first name is Courtney.

I am just a little fish in the sea. But I do understand that everything that I do could have a little impact.
In a still hot morning, the tide went out and didn’t come back in. This was not a spectacular event. The sea did not roll up like a scroll, like the sky in Revelations. It quietly withdrew.
The truth is that I am in love with Dublin. I think it is the most beautiful town that I have ever seen, mountains at the back and the sea in front, and long roads winding through decaying suburbs and beautiful woods.

Thankfully, due to the United Kingdom and the commitment of the Westminster government we are able to ensure that money brought in, whether it be from the City of London or from North Sea oil, can be pooled and directed to wherever it is needed most. That is what being in the United Kingdom is all about.
Clean, tasty, real foods do not come processed in boxes or bags; they come from the earth, the sea, the field, or the farm.
Even in our day, science suspects beyond the Polar seas, at the very circle of the Arctic Pole, the existence of a sea which never freezes and a continent which is ever green.
The Caribbean is not an idyll, not to its natives. They draw their working strength from it organically, like trees, like the sea almond or the spice laurel of the heights.

The storm came. Lives were washed away. Ancient pains resurfaced. Now it is time for a sea of change.
If I had my will I would live in a ship on the sea, and never come nearer to humanity than that!
I love San Francisco for the music culture. There’s this vibe there that I can’t find anywhere else in the world. Easily one of the best places on the sea coast.
Direct access to sea is an essential part of foreign policy.
I love the sea, and I never mind when it’s rough.
Slowly but surely the sea is freezing over.
I don’t have a problem with enhanced border security, perhaps to include fencing. I think the mistake is believing that border security is as simple as just putting up a wall from sea to shining sea.
Miracles aren’t necessarily good for everyone. The parting of the Red Sea, great for the Jews, not so hot for the Egyptian soldiers.
In ‘Deadliest Catch,’ we have men in ships in rough seas catching crabs. With ‘Whale Wars,’ we have men and women from a dozen different nations going out to sea in rough weather to help save the whales. We also have icebergs, whales, penguins, and dramatic ship-to-ship confrontations.
Sea spaghetti looks like dark fettuccine and has a similar texture – you can get it in health food stores or online.

What do you want to be a sailor for? There are greater storms in politics than you will ever find at sea. Piracy, broadsides, blood on the decks. You will find them all in politics.
Most people, once the money started getting bigger, thought we would buy a millionaire’s house looking out at the sea – but what would two middle-aged people do that for? We were sensible enough when we got it.

The guerrilla must move amongst the people as a fish swims in the sea.
I’ve never been hurt by a sea creature, except for jellyfish and sea urchins.

When I’m writing fiction I’m thinking, God, this is so hard – I have to make all this stuff up! I wish I were writing a nonfiction book where all the facts are laid out and I don’t have to be so much at sea.
It’s never going to be hipster because you’ve got that smell that the sea gives out twice a day. That’s why Margate will never be gentrified. However, there is art-led regeneration.
The sea has now changed from it’s natural, to river coloured water, the probable consequence of some streams falling into the bay, or into the ocean to the north of it, through the low land.
There’s also the tradition of voodoo, the Haitian magic arts, in New Orleans. And because New Orleans is below sea level, when they bury people in New Orleans, it’s mostly above ground. So you have this idea that the spirits are more accessible and can access you more easily because they’re not even buried.
Born on an island, I could swim before I could walk, thrown many times into swimming pools and warm transparent Caribbean waters: sink or swim, that was my first lesson. While I’m not a natural athlete, I’m still a strong swimmer and feel a great affinity with the sea.
I live in Ireland near the sea, only one mile from where I grew up – that’s good, since I’ve known many of my neighbours for between 50-60 years. Gordon and I play chess every day, and we are both equally bad. We play chatty, over-talkative bad bridge with friends every week.
When she became very ill with heart trouble, I saw that it would be impossible for my parents to provide for my studies, and I obtained their permission to go to sea to make a career for myself there.

I live in Wellington now but I love going back to the farm where all you can hear are the cows or the sea crashing in about a kilometre away. Our uncle’s farm is on the beach and we are one up from that towards the mountain.
Art is transformative. It’s not 2+2=4. It works like the sea. It changes geography through its constant and relentless movement, just the way plants and water shape the world.
The bottom of the sea is cruel.
There is nothing quite so good as burial at sea. It is simple, tidy, and not very incriminating.
My half-suppressed Canadian years, my whole childhood and youth, rose like a corpse from the bottom of the sea to confront me.

I have been on a horrible sea cruise. When my wife and I went to Mexico, Jamaica, and the Cayman Islands, I was seasick for a lot of the time. I didn’t like being trapped on a ship with a bunch of shuffleboarders.
In civilized life, law floats in a sea of ethics.
We want to overcome our historical problems with Chile. The sea has divided us and the sea must bring us back together again. Chile has agreed, for the first time, to talk about sea access for Bolivia.

Other lands may have their charms, and the sunny skies of other climes may be regretted, but it is with pride and gladness that the wanderer sets foot again on British soil, thanking God for the religion and the liberty which have made this weather-beaten island in a northern sea to be the light and glory of the world.
There’s 40 or 50 songs that nobody’s heard that I’ve done in between albums. There’s a whole evolution from Midnite Vultures to Sea Change that’s never been released.

When I was a child, my father used to take me for walks, often along a river or by the sea.

Once I saw a man take a small fish out of a bucket and impale it, still wriggling, on an empty hook to use as bait.
Why do we love the sea? It is because it has some potent power to make us think things we like to think.
Japan cannot conquer China with America in her rear, Soviet Russia on her right and England on her left – her most powerful enemies in the South Sea all flanking her. It is this international situation that constitutes one of Japan’s great weaknesses.
The sea speaks a language polite people never repeat. It is a colossal scavenger slang and has no respect.
For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.

Sea ice conditions have remained stable in Antarctica generally.
Dwellers by the sea are generally superstitious; sailors always are. There is something in the illimitable expanse of sky and water that dilates the imagination.

Since writing JAWS, I’ve been lucky enough to do close to forty television shows about wildlife in the oceans, and yes, I have been attacked by sea creatures once in a while.
In recent years, our planet has been warming at an alarming rate and seen record-breaking temperatures. We are now witnessing the sixth mass extinction event in the earth’s geologic history.

I live by the sea, but the body of water I have the most feeling about is the Mississippi River, where I used to row and skate, ride on the ferry in childhood, watch the logs or just dream.
Pleasant it is, when over a great sea the winds trouble the waters, to gaze from shore upon another’s great tribulation; not because any man’s troubles are a delectable joy, but because to perceive you are free of them yourself is pleasant.
On the 17th of May, the Delos put out to sea. I was immediately affected with sea-sickness, which, however, lasted but a short time. I remained on deck constantly, forcing myself to exercise.

We live in a culture that celebrates determination and hard work, but understand, these are the qualities that keep you in the game after most everybody else has left – or until somebody bigger and stronger picks you up and hurls you back out to sea.
Our world is drowning in a sea of self-centeredness. You can make yourself quite unique right away by leaving this ocean of selfishness and choosing to be curious about other people.
Bottom trawling is a ghastly process that brings untold damage to sea beds that support ocean life. It’s akin to using a bulldozer to catch a butterfly, destroying a whole ecosystem for the sake of a few pounds of protein. We wouldn’t do this on land, so why do it in the oceans?
I was thinking recently, I’ve always loved the ocean. If I could do it all again, I might do an oceanography degree. You can do ocean archaeology, and I thought that might be fascinating to do – man-made structures, where the sea has risen above the structures.
Sardinia has to have some of the best seafood on the planet. I’m a sea urchin freak, and Sardinia’s are some of the best I’ve had.

I have the biggest sweet tooth, and just recently a doughnut shop in Portland called Pip’s Original introduced a doughnut inspired by me called the ‘Dirty Wu.’ It is a cinnamon-sugar doughnut with sea salt, drizzled with honey and Nutella.
I enjoy art, architecture, museums, churches and temples; anything that gives me insight into the history and soul of the place I’m in. I can also be a beach bum – I like to laze in the shade of a palm tree with a good book or float in a warm sea at sundown.
I don’t expect that we’re going to become the biggest craze. If it happened, I’d be really shocked. I think people will dig it, but there will be a sea of people who just don’t get it.
You can really find yourself at sea when you’re becoming an adult and suddenly have to feed yourself for the first time.
The amazing thing about the sea is that it is perhaps the last truly unexplored frontier; most oceanographers estimate that only about ninety-five per cent of the sea has been studied. Meanwhile, the oceans are believed to contain more animals than exist on land, a majority of which have never been discovered.
As soon as the news of the Cabot voyages reached the King of Portugal he arranged to send an expedition of discovery to the far north-west, perhaps to find a northern sea route to Eastern Asia.
We see the sea as this place of leisure and this place, you know, a blue patch on the map to fly over because we all go by plane these days, mostly. And we don’t really see it as a place of industry anymore.
Just as we have the power to harm the ocean, we have the power to put in place policies and modify our own behavior in ways that would be an insurance policy for the future of the sea, for the creatures there, and for us, protecting special critical areas in the ocean.
There’s this misconception that the Navy is this cruise ship, and you get to go out and sail around, and every now and then, you have to swab the deck.

When you grow up on an island, what matters is how you stand to the sea.
As a former writer for the ‘National Lampoon,’ I’ve probably contributed to the sea of sarcasm in which we live.
I finally became a scuba diver at age 15 or so, and a couple of years after that, I attended a dive show that is held every year in Boston. It’s the oldest one in the world and it’s still going on – it’s called the Sea Rovers.
I can’t imagine Japanese food without dashi, a broth made with kelp and dried bonito flakes. It has the aroma of the sea, tinged with a subtle smokiness, and adds a very important, distinct flavor.
Weekends are about replenishment and rejuvenation. Time in Wales would definitely be part of my ideal weekend, at my own hotel, set in 72 acres of absolute gorgeousness. I can already feel the air working its magic, with the sea breeze drifting over us.
All rivers, even the most dazzling, those that catch the sun in their course, all rivers go down to the ocean and drown. And life awaits man as the sea awaits the river.
Look! Don’t be deceived by appearances – men and things are not what they seem. All who are not on the rock are in the sea!

There is a force of exultation, a celebration of luck, when a writer finds himself a witness to the early morning of a culture that is defining itself, branch by branch, leaf by leaf, in that self-defining dawn, which is why, especially at the edge of the sea, it is good to make a ritual of the sunrise.
The U.S. is not a claimant state in the South China Sea or in the China-Japan dispute over the Senkaku Islands. But, of course, the 7th Fleet has been a presence in the region since the Second World War, and it is the most powerful fleet in the region.
The funeral business is so manipulative emotionally. I would want to be thrown into the sea or burned – something that’s not a big hassle.
There are a lot of women at my gigs. The first show I headlined was a sea of women, which I can’t complain about. I’m pleased these 18-year-old girls like my music.

Making sea urchin pasta is a lot like a toddler playing with Play-Doh: There are a million right ways to do it, and most of them are salty and delicious.
When I directed my first short – ‘American Virgin’ – I had no idea if I could actually do it. Like, I might just get onto set, have everyone look at me and just completely freeze and have no idea what to do. But pretty much the opposite of that happened. I was like a fish diving into the sea.
But The Same Sea is set precisely in this Israel, which never makes it to the news headlines anywhere. It is a novel about everyday people far removed from fundamentalism, fanaticism nationalism, or militancy of any sort.
We scuba dived in the Red Sea, the Pacific and the Indian oceans. We lived in Bali and India.
I enjoy the sea more than I enjoy surfing.
I’d say that ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ is the most challenging movie I’ve made. It was tough to figure out how to lead this large cast into some very sensitive, intense, emotional scenes.
Tribe follows tribe, and nation follows nation, like the waves of the sea. It is the order of nature, and regret is useless.

A lot of people attack the sea, I make love to it.
I love the sea’s sounds and the way it reflects the sky. The colours that shimmer across its surface are unbelievable. This, combined with the colour of the water over white sand, surprises me every time.
Ambition is a Dead Sea fruit, and the greatest peril to the soul is that one is likely to get precisely what he is seeking.
If commercial fishing were excluded from large areas of the sea, the total catch would be likely, paradoxically, to rise, due to what biologists call the spillover effect.

Sometimes, when the wind hits hard and icicles form on the sea cliffs, we can all come together – and at those times, we are at our best.
At the age of 18, I made up my mind to never have another bad day in my life. I dove into a endless sea of gratitude from which I’ve never emerged.

The struggle to modernise the Labour party, which started under Neil Kinnock in the 80s, took more than a decade – and they were swimming in a largely friendly sea.

There is nothing more enticing, disenchanting, and enslaving than the life at sea.
The sudden death of the leading man will cause change, making another man leader. Soon, but too late, the young man will attain high office. By land and sea, he will be feared.

The only good things I’ve seen emerge from a steamer are tamales, couscous, and dumplings – maybe the occasional artichoke or delicate fish fillet. But baby turnips with their tender greens still attached should be boiled in water as salty as the sea until their flesh is silky and soft.
I’m fair-skinned, so beaches are a bit boring for me. I’m either smeared in lotion or under a shade. However, I do love the sea – diving, swimming and snorkelling.
In the past, Britons were scathing about the cruelties of the old Roman empire and the excesses of Catholic empire builders such as the Spanish and the French. They convinced themselves that their empire was different and benign because it rested on sea power and trade rather than on armies.
Nantucket’s English settlers, who first disembarked on the island in 1659, had been mindful of the sea’s dangers. They had hoped to earn their livelihoods not as fishermen but as farmers and shepherds on this grassy isle dotted with ponds, where no wolves preyed.
Oh, come, Divine Physician, and bind up every broken bone. Come with Thy sacred nard which Thou hast compounded of Thine own heart’s blood, and lay it home to the wounded conscience and let it feel its power. Oh! Give peace to those whose conscience is like the troubled sea which cannot rest.
There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.
Surfing and music have always been two separate sides of my life. I’m quite a fun-loving person most of the time, but I feel like I always get the serious side out when I’m playing music, and then I have fun the rest of the time when I get in the sea.
There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.

I don’t think about Norfolk as I write songs, sadly no! But things like ‘High’ is a song about watching the dawn come up over the sea, and I’ve had many of those situations.
One thing I thought of, I call it By Sea, By Land, By Foot. It’d be a 100-mile paddle, a 100-mile run, and a 100-mile bike, back-to-back-to-back. But I don’t want to end up in the hospital.
There’re been sort of a sea change in my work in general, in that the more personal, the universal it’s become.

The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides.
I love boating – not flash, ‘noisy go fast’ nonsense, but the general relaxation of it. My wife and I love to get in our little Wellcraft and go as far out to sea as we can, hopefully beyond land. That is the best thing you can ever do. It clears your psyche.
The very first lead work that I made is called ‘Land Sea and Air,’ and is the enclosure of primal elements within that kind of carapace of lead.
The very pointlessness of a sea walk is it’s attractiveness to me.
It is in the province of home and society that woman has fashioned the customs. Here, women’s approval and disapproval, wishes and wants, have been quite as formative and reformative as the action of the sea on the mainland.
A voyage to Europe in the summer of 1921 gave me the first opportunity of observing the wonderful blue opalescence of the Mediterranean Sea. It seemed not unlikely that the phenomenon owed its origin to the scattering of sunlight by the molecules of the water.
Naturally enough, I couldn’t have foreseen the vast sea change which has come upon that scene as a result of German reunification and associated events.
And when the day arrives I’ll become the sky and I’ll become the sea and the sea will come to kiss me for I am going home. Nothing can stop me now.
The sea, the great unifier, is man’s only hope. Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: we are all in the same boat.
In Britain, we have a vague idea that being by the sea does you good, clears your lungs and regenerates your system.
There are more than one hundred thousand ships at sea carrying all the solids, liquids and gases that we need to live.
Sea World’s killer whale collection needs constant replenishing. The average life span of the animals in captivity is less than half the average for killer whales in the ocean.
Both me and my wife’s extended family all live within a 50-mile radius. Like me, a lot of them did time in London then started drifting back to the countryside and the sea. Perhaps it’s a homing instinct.
The shores of the Black Sea lend themselves to the literary genre that may be classified as ‘cultural pilgrimage,’ which is not just a higher form of travel writing but which has the further mission of reporting on present conditions and supplying neglected knowledge.
When I made ‘101 Reykjavik,’ people talked about ‘Almodovar on ice.’ When I made ‘The Sea,’ people referenced Bergman.
It is true that many of the Sea Shepherd crewmembers are inexperienced, but the fact is that these volunteers bring a passion to the project that cannot be found in a hired crew.
You can swim any way you like in the Dead Sea, actually.
The ball whizzes past like a bumblebee and the Indians are in the sea.
The work to me is everything, and I would throw every rule overboard and send them to the bottom of the sea tomorrow, if I felt there were a more excellent way.
Nathaniel Philbrick’s ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ has rightfully taken its place as a classic for its literary merits. It has a special place in the cannibalism canon as well.
It is extraordinary to see the sea; what a spectacle! She is so unfettered that one wonders whether it is possible that she again become calm.
I want the Dead Sea, like Masada, to be part of UNESCO’s world heritage.
Environmentalists aren’t nearly sensitive enough to the fact that they are messing around with struggling people and their livelihoods. They forget that the fishermen are the people with the most immediate vested interest in having a healthy sea.
Put two ships in the open sea, without wind or tide, and, at last, they will come together. Throw two planets into space, and they will fall one on the other. Place two enemies in the midst of a crowd, and they will inevitably meet; it is a fatality, a question of time; that is all.
If there’s one thing that 2009 showed us, it’s that everything is happening everywhere, across multiple platforms, each one making waves that end up crashing against each other and commingling into one giant media sea.
I’m never going to stop making theatre, but I don’t think I’ll make it as much, because I don’t need to. There are other things I want to do with my life. I want to sit by the sea in Yorkshire and eat Eccles cakes and spend time with my family.
I’m not a big fan of the Mediterranean, but being in the Bay of Biscay, the sea is forever changing, and on a clear day, you see as far as Spain. It’s incomparable.
Virtue could see to do what Virtue would by her own radiant light, though sun and moon where in the flat sea sunk.
I spend a lot of time in L.A., and when it rains there you get the entire rainfall for the year in two days, raindrops the size of mangoes. And in Barcelona, the Mediterranean storms come up from the sea, thunder and lightning; it’s like the end of the world.
It is better to meet danger than to wait for it. He that is on a lee shore, and foresees a hurricane, stands out to sea and encounters a storm to avoid a shipwreck.
My guilty pleasures tend to be weird, old shows that I find on channel 20 that I’ve never seen before like ‘Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea’ or the ‘Planet of the Apes’ TV show.
As long as there is a Southern Ocean whale sanctuary, Sea Shepherd crew will continue to patrol and defend it.
Marketers have long known that a name can make all the difference when you’re trying to move the merch. The kiwifruit was once the Chinese gooseberry, after all – at least until the produce peddlers wised up – and the Chilean sea bass was once the singularly unappetizing Patagonian toothfish.
Almost the first thing you see after entering the Houdini exhibition at the Jewish Museum is a large-screen film of Harry Houdini hanging by his ankles upside-down from a tall building, high over a sea of men in fedoras, and thrashing his way out of a straitjacket.
Sea Shepherd does not condone, nor do we practise, violence.
The sea has neither meaning nor pity.
Nothing has prepared sharks, squid, krill and other sea creatures for industrial-scale extraction that destroys entire ecosystems while targeting a few species.
For a thousand years after the Dead Sea Scrolls were written, the Jewish holy scriptures – the five parts of the Torah and 19 other holy books – were copied and passed down in the various Jewish communities from generation to generation.
I don’t see America as a mainland, but as a sea, a big ocean. Sometimes a storm arises, a formidable current develops, and it seems it will engulf everything. Wait a moment, another current will appear and bring the first one to naught.
Instead of passing on choppy waters to the next generation, we should endeavor to leave them a calmer sea.
The most ordinary conditions for observing sailing birds are then the wind and sea are both aft.
But I’ve never really done anything that implies any kind of danger. I wouldn’t skydive, I wouldn’t deep sea dive, I wouldn’t parachute. I think you’re really just rolling the dice. Who packed your chute the night before?
Everyone in Denmark has at least two or three sailors in their family; sea travel is part of the DNA of our nation, and because of that, I’d always wanted to tell a story aboard a ship.
I wrote The Same Sea not as a political allegory about Israelis and Palestinians. I wrote it about something much more gutsy and immediate. I wrote it as a piece of chamber music.
New Orleans lives by the water and fights it, a sand castle set on a sponge nine feet below sea level, where people made music from heartache, named their drinks for hurricanes and joked that one day you’d be able to tour the city by gondola.
In 2000, I got stuck in the sea off Cyprus after I fell off a boat. I was out there for over an hour. I am not a strong swimmer, but adrenaline kicked in, and I swam back.
China’s Nine-Dashed Line was deemed an unlawful maritime claim by an arbitral tribunal convened under the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention in July 2016, a position shared by the U.S. government.
The breaking of a wave cannot explain the whole sea.
The Mediterranean is in my DNA. I’m fine inland for about a week, but then I yearn for a limitless view of the sea, for the colours and smells of the Italian and French Riviera.
Although Shanghai is on the sea, it long lacked the prosperity that Hong Kong enjoyed, so while Hong Kong became known for its exotic ocean creatures, Shanghai built its diet around more commonplace river and sea fish.
Hence a ship is said to head the sea, when her course is opposed to the setting or direction of the surges.
One day, one of my dreams is to someday get to do Nemo in ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.’
I love the sea, but I avoid any sort of seaside resort that has skyscrapers or seaside entertainments.
From Mangaluru to Karwar, we have a 300-km stretch of sea. Tourism fuels Goa’s economy and job creation. If they can do it, why can’t we do it here?
Evolution is all about passing on the genome to the next generation, adapting and surviving through generation after generation. From an evolutionary point of view, you and I are like the booster rockets designed to send the genetic payload into the next level of orbit and then drop off into the sea.
Anybody can pilot a ship when the sea is calm.
I liked natural history. I liked the outdoors. And I found the sea quite interesting.
A Canada-style deal for the whole of the UK results in a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. For that reason, it has never been acceptable to the EU without a permanent hard border down the Irish Sea.
I grew up in New England at the edge of the Atlantic and have for many years been an avid rower. I’ve rowed in various places, including the Ganges in India, the River Shannon in Ireland, and the Sea of Galilee.
After I retire, I have my own vision, which is not connected to the state of Israel. It’s about me, living near the sea, and maybe writing something about the past.
I remember being in Atlantic City once when I was 18 or 19, and a sea of people were screaming and pulling their hair because I was there. It was weird. Nobody deserves adulation like that. I tried to explain it to my kids once. I said, ‘Mommy used to be kind of cool, kind of like a Britney Spears.’
I have always found it difficult to wait for things – whether it was to see my father or sailor brother, Alan, again after their long sea trips, or the chance of a better job, or even new curtains.
With ‘The Sea,’ I was just thinking about loss, about the impact losing your father would have on you as a child, how one event that big could colour your life, bleed into everything else and force you into a certain shape.
I’d happily cover the British Open every year until St. Andrews slides into the sea or Scotland runs out of beer, whichever happens first.
Stalin had 15 scenic seaside villas, some of them czarist palaces, on the Black Sea coast of Abkhazia. In 2002, I visited and photographed these extraordinarily well-preserved Stalinist time capsules.
I even got invited to a ‘Star Trek’ sea cruise. That was pretty exciting.
Climate change, in some regions, has aggravated conflict over scarce land, and could well trigger large-scale migration in the decades ahead. And rising sea levels put at risk the very survival of all small island states. These and other implications for peace and security have implications for the United Nations itself.
In 10 years, I’d love to live near the sea, in a warmer climate. I could see myself with three dogs… and it’d be great to share them with someone else.
If I read not amiss, this powerful race will move down upon Mexico, down upon Central and South America, out upon the islands of the sea, over upon Africa and beyond. And can any one doubt that the results of this competition of races will be the ‘survival of the fittest?’
The U.S. must differentiate between controversial assertions of power, like those in the South China Sea, and fair reflections of China’s growing contribution to the world, such as the new banks.
I live by the sea in Australia and the weather of course is glorious all year round.
In 1916, Universal Studios released the first filmed adaptation of Jules Verne’s novel ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.’ Georges Melies made a film by that name in 1907, but, unlike his earlier adaptations of Verne, Melies’ version bears no resemblance to the book.
