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.
When I was little I had this notion of being a marine biologist. I grew up by the ocean so I was always in the water but realistically, I don’t think I would make the best marine biologist.
Together we can face any challenges as deep as the ocean and as high as the sky.
The land and the ocean are living, breathing entities that supported us, clothed us, fed us, and nurtured our culture from time immemorial.
Eden Robinson
Wherever I can go, I hit the water, whether it’s the ocean, or in L.A. it’s Zuma Beach in Malibu; I just hit the water.
Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths, and encourage the arts and commerce.
‘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 icy seas as surely as a grand and extravagant ocean liner.
The tools and technologies we’ve developed are really the first few drops of water in the vast ocean of what AI can do.
There are already dozens of organizations working on trying to prevent plastic from going into the ocean, through advocacy, education, awareness, all great work, yet nobody was addressing the stock of existing pollution.
Most sponges in the ocean are sedentary: They attach themselves 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!
I’ve had experiences on both sides of the ocean and various classrooms and bedrooms around New York.
I love the ocean. Anywhere near the ocean will do. Preferably the Atlantic Ocean.
It is said that many children who live in the central provinces, away from the ocean, have a great longing to see it. I who had never been away from the monotonous country surrounding us looked forward eagerly to seeing the mountains.
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.
Looking up and out, how can we not respect this ever-vigilant cognizance that distinguishes us: the capability to envision, to dream, and to invent? the ability to ponder ourselves? and be aware of our existence on the outer arm of a spiral galaxy in an immeasurable ocean of stars? Cognizance is our crest.
Vanna Bonta
I’m an ocean, because I’m really deep. If you search deep enough you can find rare exotic treasures.
I don’t like the ocean. I’m not a natural swimmer, even though I come from Australia. That’ a terrible thing to say.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
The Everglades are flat, and they border a rising ocean. As the sea levels rise, the shorelines erode, and that salty water travels inland, threatening the aquifers supplying fresh drinking water to Floridians.
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?
The ocean is like a checking account where everybody withdraws but nobody makes a deposit. This is what’s happening because of overfishing.
Enric Sala
Being out there in the ocean, God’s creation, it’s like a gift He has given us to enjoy.
Why is it that scuba divers and surfers are some of the strongest advocates of ocean conservation? Because they’ve spent time in and around the ocean, and they’ve personally seen the beauty, the fragility, and even the degradation of our planet‘s blue heart.
The way the clean-up system works is that we let the plastic come to us, using the ocean currents in our advantage.
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.
A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.
The Deep Flight Challenger technology is a game-changer

The Deep Flight Challenger technology is a game-changer for ocean exploration.
Graham Hawkes
I wonder what it’s like to be from a state that is spread across a few islands way out in the Pacific Ocean, only added to the United States in 1959. Not only that but to be the birthplace of America’s first black president? Pretty cool, I bet.
I kind of went through a rough period. I could have kept going down that road and then off the cliff and into the ocean.
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.
Greg Cipes
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.
In some ways, I’m in danger of doing too many things to be able to appreciate and enjoy them. I look forward to thinking back to carrying the Olympic torch, or going to the Royal Wedding, when I’m in the middle of the ocean on my own far from anywhere – that’s when I’ll relive those moments.
Health to the ocean means health for us.
In the months leading up to World War II, there was a tendency among many Americans to talk absently about the trouble in Europe. Nothing that happened an ocean away seemed very threatening.
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.
Michael Berryman
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.
Out here in California, in the Pacific Ocean, the sharks have a bad attitude.
The road to democracy may be winding and is like a river taking many curves, but eventually the river will reach the ocean.
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.
Texas Battle
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.’
Now and then, when I grow nostalgic about my ocean childhood – the wauling of gulls and the smell of salt, somebody solicitous will bundle me into a car and drive me to the nearest briny horizon.
Taking care of the world’s ocean garbage problem is one of the largest environmental challenges mankind faces today.
I was curious and hungry at a young age, and jazz was such a mystery to me, an ocean where you can express yourself in the moment. It represented freedom, it represented wearing wings and going somewhere with music.
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.
I do a lot of swimming, both in the ocean and in the pool.
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.
Graham Hawkes
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 totally unprepared for how much. It was incredible! There were explosions of light everywhere, like being in the middle of a silent fireworks display.
I’m scared of heights and I’m scared of the ocean.
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.
Our insatiable appetite for fossil fuels and the corporate mandate to maximize shareholder value encourages drilling without taking into account the costs to the ocean, even without major spills.
If it turns out that global warming and ocean acidification are consequences of capitalism‘s carbon-based energy system, the entire world could end up dead from the external costs of capitalism.
Plate tectonics is not all havoc and destruction. The slow movement of continents and ocean floors recycles carbon dioxide dissolved in the oceans back into the atmosphere. Without this slow speed carbon cycle, Earth’s temperatures would cool dozens of degrees below your comfort zone.
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 finally pop, like rivets on a distressed ocean liner? When the pinstripes of his Yankees shirt have grown wider at the midsection than at the top, as the longitudinal lines on a globe?
Right up until the late 18th century, when the first weighted lines were used to probe the ocean depths, many people believed the seas were bottomless – the watery equivalent of infinite outer space.
I love just how beautiful Vancouver is. I mean, everywh

I love just how beautiful Vancouver is. I mean, everywhere you look it’s just mountains and ocean.
Emma Bell
The ocean is our planet’s life support system, yet in my travels and at home, I’ve seen its degradation firsthand.
Greg MacGillivray
When I was 10 years old, I threw a bottle with a note in it in the ocean in Massachusetts, and Harrison Salisbury found it and contacted me. We began a correspondence that lasted for years, and I eventually met him when I was 18.
As far as Europa goes, Europa very likely has an ocean under its surface. In that regard, Europa and Enceladus are on equal par. But on Europa, the ocean is at least several kilometers under the surface, and the moon is bathed in an intense radiation field.
If you’re overfishing at the top of the food chain, and acidifying the ocean at the bottom, you’re creating a squeeze that could conceivably collapse the whole system.
Carl Safina
You and I are all as much continuous with the physical universe as a wave is continuous with the ocean.
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’m excited to go surfing every time. I have fun in any kind of wave in the ocean.
I saw also that there was an ocean of darkness and death, but an infinite ocean of light and love, which flowed over the ocean of darkness.
George Fox
I think there’s a lot of people in their dingy boats in the middle of the ocean pining for the days of closed-ended narrative.
Malaysians talk with Mauritians, Arabs with Australians, South Africans with Sri Lankans, and Iranians with Indonesians. The Indian Ocean serves as both a sea separating them and a bridge linking them together.
As a surfer, I am interested in the ocean. And I am concerned and interested in all of these natural and cultural rumblings underfoot as well.
I went into the Navy because I love the ocean, and I am still privileged to have a place that I can go to that’s by the water.
The fact is, Japan’s whaling is illegal, so just because there is a natural disaster in Japan is no reason for us to stop opposing their illegal activities in the Southern Ocean.
There’s a Diebenkorn painting – ‘Ocean Park No. 68’ – that is the color of a swimming pool and always reminds me of summers at the beach.
It is true what Rimbaud said; If you think a book is strong enough, try it at the ocean, in the wind, at the waves. If the book can resist the ocean, then it exists. Otherwise, throw it away.
The biggest misconception is that swimming is something you do on holiday, in the pool or in the ocean.
We’ve explored very little of the ocean. We really don’t know what’s out there. But people think we’ve figured it all out.
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 spend eternity 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.
If we wipe out the fish, the oceans are going to die. If the oceans die, we die. We can’t live on this planet with a dead ocean.
My dream artist to play at prom would be Frank Ocean. ‘Thinking Of You’ is one of my favorite songs. He makes really sweet music for slow dancing at prom.
What makes Burning Man special is the location: a 9-mile circle of gypsum, an ancient dried ocean bed. The ground is like a flat crust with no plants or insects, a perfect outdoor gallery for monumental interactive sculpture and architecture.
People love the ocean. People are always asking me why I don’t study the ocean, because, after all, I live in Hawaii. I tell them that it’s because the ocean is a lonely, empty place.
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.
Simone Schwarz-Bart
The earliest memories I have of the ocean are actually stories – stories from my grandfather, the legendary ocean explorer and conservationist Jacques Cousteau. My passion for ocean conservation stems from learning at a very young age that we’re all connected; we’re all in this together.
That’s what I like about Frank Ocean or Bon Iver – they try to capture a feeling in the most sincere way.
We might work on ways to prevent plastic getting into the ocean in the first place.
On life's vast ocean diversely we sail. Reasons the car

On life’s vast ocean diversely we sail. Reasons the card, but passion the gale.
Following the devastating India Ocean tsunami of 2004, I founded Chefs for Humanity, modeled after Doctors Without Borders, but comprised of chefs. There wasn’t anything out there like it, and there was a definite need for chefs to be able to offer assistance and aid.
Every time you dive, you hope you’ll see something new – some new species. Sometimes the ocean gives you a gift, sometimes it doesn’t.
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.
Marguerite Moreau
Shangri-La is one of the few studios in which you can sit in the control room and open a window behind 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.
The ocean, to me, is one of the most terrifying things on the planet.
As a species, we’ve always been discoverers and adventurers, and space and the deep ocean are some of the last frontiers.
For a photographer, sharks are a stirring subject, possessing a perfect blend of grace and power. They have been sculpted by evolution and are ideally suited 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.
I’ve gotten used to being Frank Ocean.
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.
Rachelle Lefevre
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.
Jolene Blalock
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.
I had a Kindle for a brief while, but I dropped it in the ocean, and that was the end of electronic reading for me.
There is a terribly terrestrial mindset 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.
The Mediterranean Sea with its various branches, penetrating far into the great Continent, forms the largest gulf of the ocean, and, alternately narrowed by islands or projections of the land and expanding to considerable breadth, at once separates and connects the three divisions of the Old World.
Hostility comes from loneliness, from not seeing yourself like a drop falling into the ocean of humanity like everyone else.
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 steady march upward 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.
When I was 18, I moved across the ocean just for the opportunity to play for a club that played against Barcelona. So to have the honour of playing for Barca? It was incredible.
I don’t get to go to the beach often, so when I’m in Miami I usually spent the majority of my time by the ocean.
I love how it feels to unwind by the ocean.
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.
With EarthEcho Expedition: Acid Apocalypse, we are working with youth leaders and noted experts on the changing chemistry of our ocean to help illuminate one of our most pressing and inscrutable environmental issues.
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.
Pak-China friendship is higher than Himalayas, deeper than ocean, sweeter than honey, and stronger than steel.
Our leaders have the solemn obligation to know the proper steps to take before acting upon them, and building a wall from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf Coast of Texas is a third-century solution to a 21st-century problem.
Over the years, I found myself traveling parts of the Lewis and Clark Trail, putting my hands in the river where they set out from St. Louis, viewing the Great Falls of Montana, standing by the same Pacific Ocean they saw with such joy.
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.
Donald Trump
Like solo sailors 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.
Of course climate changes. Many changes are due to factors over which humans have no control, such as winds, ocean currents, and sun activity. But the liberals want us to believe that climate change is also caused by gases expelled when humans burn so-called fossil fuels.
In Hawaii, we understand that our way of life depends o

In Hawaii, we understand that our way of life depends on a healthy ocean.
Environmentalists, members of the Obama administration and government officials in several states see significant potential for offshore wind energy, given that winds over the ocean usually blow stronger and more steadily than those on land.
Even if the ocean on Enceladus starts out being as microbially poor as the pelagic ocean on Earth, which is the worst case, we still have a chance of seeing lots of organisms in the plumes.
I got a lot of praise and attention post ‘Kai Po Che’ but I was thrown into a big ocean suddenly.
For Dad, service took him many unexpected places. It summoned him and his crew mates to the skies over the Pacific Ocean in World War II. It took him to Capitol Hill, Beijing and eventually the Oval Office.
I am very proud of rowing the Atlantic Ocean.
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.
For pure joy, I look at a small painting by Arbit Blatas. An ocean liner is at the center of the composition, perhaps ready to depart. It holds the promise of discovery.
Just as a drop of water in the ocean cannot avail much; but if a great river runneth into it, that maketh a great commotion.
You cannot stop an Islamist tsunami by building a small island somewhere in the ocean.
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.
My parents raised me and my siblings in an armor of advice, an ocean of alarm bells so someone wouldn’t steal the breath from our lungs, so that they wouldn’t make a memory of this skin.
Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me.
The Lowcountry traditionally is a logical place where the big ships stopped and brought new things in from the ocean, and the islands have a mystical tradition. It is such a visual place, too, with these iconic villages with the Spanish moss and the village and historical homes and the coast.
The offshore ocean area under U.S. jurisdiction is larger than our land mass, and teems with plant and animal life, mineral resources, commerce, trade, and energy sources.
Deep ocean drilling is not new.
A beach is not only a sweep of sand, but shells of sea creatures, the sea glass, the seaweed, the incongruous objects washed up by the ocean.
Henry Grunwald
According to String Theory, what appears to be empty space is actually a tumultuous ocean of strings vibrating at the precise frequencies that create the 4 dimensions you and I call height, width, depth and time.
We’re working on ways to make potable water from polluted water, whether it has organics in it or salt from the ocean, at very low energy input.
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.
I grew up next to the ocean, on the coast, and would dance the salsa all day, so I just learned those rhythms and knew how to move my body when I was very little.
Ana de la Reguera
I’m a sun and ocean guy.
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.
When I was a child, I saw my father diving to the deepest point in the ocean with the U.S. Navy.
Bertrand Piccard
I had more fun making Traffic than either of the Ocean’s films.
If, as the emperor Augustus says, from his time the coast of the ocean from Cadiz to the mouth of the Elbe obeyed the Romans, the obedience in this corner of it was far from voluntary and little to be trusted.
I love to cook, my husband and I collect wine, and in my head, I am always on Sullivan’s Island, walking the beach listening to the song of the ocean.
Dorothea Benton Frank
Civilization is like a thin layer of ice upon a deep ocean of chaos and darkness.
I miss the ocean; I miss Fenway.
John King
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.
Often extinctions in the ocean occur at the same time as those on land. Then again, the ice age extinctions lost many big animals, but not many sea faring ones.
Robert T. Bakker
One of my dreams was always to have a piano - a room wi

One of my dreams was always to have a piano – a room with a piano overlooking the ocean or a lake.
Far and away, the greatest threat to the ocean, and thus to ourselves, is ignorance. But we can do something about that.
I’ve always had a deep connection with the ocean, and could never see myself landlocked.
The first mission to Mars did not expect to find craters and river valleys, and yet they did. The first mission to Jupiter didn’t expect to find ocean worlds and volcano worlds, but they did.
Imagine that foreign development is not done to our standards and a spill occurs. Neither geology nor ocean currents will respect our national boundaries.
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.
As the scale of economic activity increases until capitalism affects everything, from the atmosphere to the deep ocean floor, the entire planet becomes a sacrifice zone: we all inhabit the periphery of the profit-making machine.
The universe is an example of love. Like a tree. Like the ocean. Like my body. Like my wheelchair. I see the love.
I am an ocean lover and fish watcher and had studied marine biology and even taught marine sciences before I got into animation.
All of us, including me, can work on our skills. Music is such a huge ocean, you can never feel that you know everything. There will always be something that you can learn.
There’s no doubt that the Moon is more than a handy night light and a hair restorer for werewolves. It’s responsible for the substantial amplitude of earthly ocean tides. These are of obvious influence if you’re a geoduck, a type of clam that people dig up at low tide.
I’ve gone on a research expedition in the Atlantic Ocean before. I was sick for the entire week after that.
