In this post, you will find great Ocean Quotes from famous people, such as Cyndi Lauper, Billie Eilish, Kenneth Koch, Christopher Reeve, Jeffrey Wright. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
I remember, with Kendrick on ‘To Pimp a Butterfly,’ I was in tears. I literally was because it had pulled me and pushed me and stretched me and crushed me and expanded me. It was like I didn’t know which way was up. By the end of it, I felt like I was floating in the ocean like a carcass.
I like going in the ocean and leaving my hair for two days with the saltwater beachy look. I think that is part of the reason I would love to cut my hair short. I just wouldn’t ever have to think about it.
Our oceans are facing innumerable threats – from overfishing and pollution to ocean acidification and invasive species – yet we haven‘t had a blueprint for its use and development, incredible as that seems.
Almost every time I go to the ocean, I think about throwing my phone right into it. Sometimes, you pull that thing out of your pocket, you look at it, and you’re like, ‘What was I just going to do with this? Was I going to take a note? Was I going to check my email? Was I going to take a picture?’
I come from a little island with the Caribbean Sea on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. I come from, really, nowhere, and for me, the fiction and the nonfiction, creative or otherwise, all come from the same place.
When you’re young, you believe in the most basic things. You believe that there are good people around you. And you don’t just take things for granted, like the ocean or the sky, or even being able to dream, to have a vision, to have ambition. As you grow up, all that gets knocked out of you.
We made part of the record in Miami, and I would go down to the beach, and not 20 feet from the water I see a fish that is at least seven feet long swimming close to the shore. I did not go back in the ocean the entire month.
My life and the life of my family has to do with exploration, with adventure. My grandfather was the first man in the stratosphere, and my father was the first to touch the deepest point in the ocean… For me, adventure and exploration is something in the blood.
I took Kira to a nicedinner at a place called Moonshadows in Malibu, which is by the ocean, and I organized it so a school of young dolphins swam by our table. I took her for a long walk on the beach after dinner, and I told her all the things I love about her. Then I asked her to marry me.
Fishermen own the fish they catch, but they do not own the ocean.
I go to an all-Hawaiian school, and we learn everything about being Hawaiian. We have a really deep respect for the water and the land. We say, ‘mauka to makai,’ mountains to ocean. I believe if you take care of the ocean, the ocean will take care of you in return.
Tippingpoints are so dangerous because if you pass them, the climate is out of humanity‘s control: if an ice sheet disintegrates and starts to slide into the ocean there’s nothing we can do about that.
I have always had a very natural connection to the water, and that connection stems from the ocean itself.
The openingscene from ‘Sharknado’ I think was better than the original ‘Jaws’ movie. It was scarier, it was bloodier, and it had more high-anxiety moments than the original ‘Jaws’ movie. And that movie kept me out of the ocean for a summer.
If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of people out there toiling over your unpublished manuscript, trying to make your way across that vast ocean in a bathtub, I can only say this to you: keep paddling. Well, either that or start vlogging.
There’s a lot of animals in the open ocean – most of them that make light. And we have a pretty good idea, for most of them, why. They use it for findingfood, for attracting mates, for defending against predators. But when you get down to the bottom of the ocean, that’s where things get really strange.
I feel as though I have lived many lives, experienced the heights and depths of each and like the waves of the ocean, never known rest. Throughout the years, I have looked always for the unusual, for the wonderful, for the mysteries at the heart of life.
It is clear that if we are going to understand ocean ecosystems, we need to understand the part that bioluminescence plays in those ecosystems.
I am not a yachting person, by nature, but I have just enough experience on the sea under sail to feel a certainnostalgia for it when I see a big white racingyacht heeled over at cruising speed on the ocean, and I can still tie a mean bowline knot on just about anything in less than 10 seconds.
The story seems to be that almost every star has a planetary system… and, also, the definition of ‘habitablezone‘ has expanded. In our system, it used to be that only Mars and Earth were potentially habitable. Now we’ve got an ocean on Europa… Titan.
Really, the ocean itself – that’s really the thing that we’re up against, the most destructive environment on the planet.
At the bottom of the ocean, bacteria that are thermophilic and can survive at the steam vent heat that would otherwise produce, if fish were there, sous-vide cooked fish, nevertheless, have managed to make that a hospitable environment for them.
I’m always going to take an experience and a fire beat and marry it all together with adultmelodies. I try to paint, just like Frank Ocean paints with his lyrics. I try in similar ways to paint my life into these songs.
As for poker, I’ve stayed away from that, even though when I was in Vegas for Ocean’s Eleven, I would get accosted by these guysbegging me to play. They just want to take my money. They see me, think ‘actor‘ and see some easy money.
Giant squid aren’t rare. Based on the number of beaks that have been found in the stomachs of sperm whales, it’s thought that there are actually millions of them in the ocean, and yet, we haven’t seen them.
We absolutely need to clean up the plastic that’s already in the ocean. It won’t go away by itself. But we do also need to make sure that no more plastic enters the oceans in the first place. These things should go hand in hand.
Everybody seen me talking to Frank Ocean, so they know something is coming, so something is coming with Frank Ocean – just wait on it – and, you know, people were just like, ‘Whoa, Rich the Kid found Frank Ocean!’
We all have an edge. We all are floating our psyche on top with a great ocean underneath.
The Ganga remains sacred from Gomukh, its source, to Ganga sagar, where it enters the ocean. It sanctifies the tributaries, which attain the very nature of Ganga. Similar is Sanskrit; sacred by itself, it sanctifies all that come into its contact.
I think there’s something about going on a hike and looking at a city view or looking at the ocean that brings you back to earth and kind of reminds you that your problems are quite small in retrospect.
The fact is that ours is the first generation that can look disease and extreme poverty in the eye, look across the ocean to Africa, and say this, and mean it. We do not have to stand for this. A whole continent written off – we do not have to stand for this.
‘Downton Abbey‘ is a pageant, a cavalcade of a time when being born right is the first and most irrevocable career move, and in which an older order – whose passing ‘Downton’s’ creator, Julian Fellowes, clearly mourns – is submerging in icyseas as surely as a grand and extravagant ocean liner.
Most sponges in the ocean are sedentary: They attachthemselves to a rock and sit and filter-feed the rest of their lives and reproduce, and that’s about it. Not that they are not interesting, but they are not that kinetic. They are not mobile. They don’t cook Krabbie Patties!
Nazare is crazy. When you’re out in the ocean, and you’re a little bit past the wave, outside, it doesn’t really look that big. And then, once you get towed into this thing, it is like coming down a mountain, like going over a cliff.
Human evolution, at first, seems extraordinary. How could the process that gave rise to slugs and oak trees and fish produce a creature that can fly to the moon and invent the Internet and cross the ocean in boats?
Sometimes I have to run and hide. What I do at home sometimes is, I listen to a CD of the roughness of the ocean. I turn every light off, and I turn the stereo on, and I just go in my mind, cry, talk to God, tell him, ‘I’m your child, too.’ And I stay in my little solitude until I can get the strength to go outdoors.
It’s either I have to be in the trees or in the ocean, otherwise I lose my mind. I have to get connected with nature, otherwise I don’t feel very good. And that’s what life’s about, feeling good, so nature knows best for me.
The stakes in my books tend to be kind of ridiculously high. In ‘Kid vs. Squid,’ the question is whether or not the California coast will be subsumed by the ocean in favor of the creation of a new Atlantis. In ‘The Boy at the End of the World,’ what’s at stake is the survival of the human species.
That includes not cutting down the rain forest, and stop polluting the ocean because once we kill the coral reefs and the rain forest, this earth is toast.
During one new moon at perigee, I stood on high ground, watching salt ponds overflow, cover the beach, and meet the ocean. Because the moon was invisible, the water was black as it drowned the sand, and the event felt primal – which in fact it was, because it was nature.
The only time I get afraid is when I am at the ocean. I get a little nervous when I’m in the water because I always feel like something is going to bite or snatch me.
I used to sail a lot in all kinds of weather, competing on small sailboats in the ocean. And I travel a lot in Iceland on horses every summer, through the wild areas where there’s no inhabitants and there are volcanoes.
Almost all of the Marshall Islands’ 72,000 residents live within seven feet of sea level. If the climate continues to change at its current pace, ocean acidification could destroy its resources and rising oceans could flood large parts of the islands.
When I started there was this consensus that you could never clean this up, that the problem is way too big, the ocean is way too rough, the issue of bycatch – ‘plastic is too big, plastic is too small.’
I really appreciate Frank Ocean’s lyrical style, I appreciate the way that he can kind of draw you into this personal space, but it’s still lyrical. It’s almost poetic, in a way, but it’s very personal at the same time.
Scientists are always the ones who head into the ocean, but I want to take writers and politicians, people who can convey the beauty that is there and perhaps do something to take care of it.
During my first open ocean dive, I went down to 800 feet and turned out the lights. I knew I would see bioluminescence, but I was totallyunprepared for how much. It was incredible! There were explosions of light everywhere, like being in the middle of a silentfireworksdisplay.
Plastic debris in the ocean was thought to accumulate in big patches, mostly in subtropical gyres – big currents that converge in the middle of the ocean – but scientists estimate that only about 1 percent of plastic pollution is in these gyres and other surface waters in the open ocean.
Cirque du Soleil means Circus of the Sun. When I need to take time to reenergize, I go somewhere by the ocean to sit back and watch the sunsets. That is where the idea of ‘Soleil’ came from, on a beach in Hawaii, and because the sun is the symbol of youth and energy.
When should a man stop wearing sports jerseys? When the buttons of his White Sox top finallypop, like rivets on a distressed ocean liner? When the pinstripes of his Yankeesshirt have grown wider at the midsection than at the top, as the longitudinal lines on a globe?
As far as Europa goes, Europa very likely has an ocean under its surface. In that regard, Europa and Enceladus are on equalpar. But on Europa, the ocean is at least several kilometers under the surface, and the moon is bathed in an intenseradiation field.
I have been aware all the time that my peoples, spread far and wide throughout every continent and ocean in the world, were united to support me in the task to which I have now been dedicated with such solemnity.
Living in a capital in Europe but still surrounded by mountains and ocean, my relationship to music was strongest walking to school and back. I would sing to myself and very quickly started mapping out my melodies to landscapes – at the time I just thought it was very matter of fact, a common thing to do.
I am just sitting back and trying to take in the idea that the God who created everything around us, He didn’t call the mountains or the forest or the ocean to spendeternity with Him, but He called us.
Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean, man does not lose his being in the society in which he lives. Man’s life is independent. He is born not for the development of the society alone, but for the development of his self.
I saw my country first. Because, whoever gets up into space from whichever nationality, the first thing they do is they look out for their country. That is what I did. The Indian peninsula with the ocean on all three sides. And it was a beautiful sight.
The ocean is so powerful and so healing at the same time. It’s kind of like a sanctuary. And the culture of the people in surfing, I love that. It’s such a community. It’s just got this, like, chill way about it. When you’re in the water, it’s very inclusive.
The sun would come up over the ocean, and we’d be eating scrambled eggs before we shot some stuff. It was a vacation in the sense that it was the best working conditions.
Shangri-La is one of the few studios in which you can sit in the control room and open a windowbehind you. You can feel the light and the air coming off the ocean. You can have a musical world in front of you and the natural world behind you.
For a photographer, sharks are a stirring subject, possessing a perfect blend of grace and power. They have been sculpted by evolution and are ideallysuited for whichever ecosystem they inhabit, from coral reefs to the open ocean.
There’s a deodorant I wear called Baux, from L’Occitane, that is super nostalgic because it reminds me of being in Greece in the summer. When I put it on, I’m immediately taken back to that feeling of having salty skin and hair from the ocean and the taste of fresh fish.
There is no substitute for a real location when you’re trying to shoot the jungle. You can’t just go anywhere. You’ve got to go where it’s lush and green and there really is those mountain ranges, the trees and the ocean.
I was a good surfer because we grew up a block from the water, and my father took us to the ocean the way other fathers take their kids to the park.
Everything in L.A. is – it’s just an easy place to live in. The houses are nice, the backyards are nice, you got the ocean right there and the mountains behind you; there’s an idealised easiness to the way you live and the whole environment.
There is a terribly terrestrialmindset about what we need to do to take care of the planet – as if the ocean somehow doesn’t matter or is so big, so vast that it can take care of itself, or that there is nothing that we could possibly do that we could harm the ocean.
You have to think of your career the way you look at the ocean, deciding which wave you’re gonna take and which waves you’re not gonna take. Some of the waves are going to be big, some are gonna be small, sometimes the sea is going to be calm. Your career is not going to be one steadymarchupward to glory.
I think about myself as like an ocean liner that’s been going full speed for a long distance, and the captain pulls the throttle back all the way to ‘stop,’ but the ship doesn’t stop immediately, does it? It has its own momentum and it keeps on going, and I’m very flattered that people are still finding me useful.
There are two things I love about Temescal. One is the sense of space that you get when you get to the top. You can see for ages. You can see the ocean spread out before you, but you also feel like you’re in the mountains. And second is the smell of it, which I love most when I’ve been traveling a long time.
One of the reasons that New York became great was that it’s serviced by many, many different rivers and waterways. You have the Atlantic Ocean connected virtually right to it, and it’s serviced by the East River and the Hudson River and lots of tributaries.
Like solosailors venturing into the Southern Ocean, climbers are seduced by risk. The desire to push to a summit or scale a rock face is so strong that they consciously or subconsciously minimize safety precautions drilled into their brains.
When I was maybe eight or nine years old, I first learned about the climate crisis in school. My teachers taught me about it and we saw films and pictures of plastic in the ocean and extreme weather events. Those pictures were just stuck in my head; I thought, there is no point in anything.
Almost any American can connect on some level to a family background of having come across some ocean. They say, ‘My great-grandparents came from wherever… this is why we have this last name, why we do this thing at Christmas.’ All the details get watered down but don’t quite disappear.
I would love to have an ocean of love right now. That said, the number-one rule of acting is, ‘Do not seek approval from the audience.’ People don’t realize that. You can’t do stuff to get applause. You have to live in the truth.
Just because you see pictures of glaciers falling into the ocean doesn’t mean anything bad is happening. This is something that happens all the time. It’s part of the natural cycle of things. We know from measurements that glaciers have been melting for 200 years at least.
If I go out in the open ocean environment, virtually anywhere in the world, and I drag a net from 3,000 feet to the surface, most of the animals – in fact, in many places, 80 to 90 percent of the animals that I bring up in that net – make light. This makes for some pretty spectacular light shows.
Nature. That’s the one thing that tips the balance in terms of living here in California. Within minutes, I can be in a desert, at the ocean, in a park, and that’s the most nourishing food for my soul.
