The sea speaks to the soul.
In some bizarre twist of fate or by design, human beings were created to live on the land of this planet. The bizarreness comes from the fact that the majority of Earth is covered in water and humans were not made to breathe when surrounded by wet liquid. So all we’re left to do is simply admire it.
Alright, maybe that’s not entirely true. We can swim, we can go diving, and heck, we even invented submarines. The human race has plenty of options to enjoy the water. Now if only the pressure wouldn’t kill us if we went too deep (and let’s not even think about the creatures that lie beneath…)
As it turns out, more than 80 percent of the ocean is still unexplored, with some estimates sitting at 5 percent of total exploration. Fun fact: more people have walked on the moon than dove into the Mariana Trench. The lack of a sense of adventure mostly comes from the extreme temperatures swings the farther down you go, the fact that it gets completely pitch-black and the pressure can be deadly.
So, unfortunately, we don’t really know much about the ocean, still. However, we do know what it looks like and how it can make us feel.
The ocean (or really any body of water) can stir up all sorts of feelings, not to mention it’s pretty much always Instagram-able.
Nothing’s more picturesque than a setting sun over the water, or the waves of the ocean. And for every good Instagram beach photo, you need the perfect beach quote or caption about the ocean to go with it.
Whether you head to the coast for a fun trip, if you’re planning a romantic beach vacation, or if you’re the type of person who can’t get enough of living by the water, there’s always something about the ocean that brings out the best of us. There can be something completely mystical and awe-inspiring, while at the same time soothing and relaxing. The feelings the beach gives us is something that can be hard to put into words, so allow these fine folks to do that for you.
Take a look below at some of the best ocean quotes about the beach that perfectly describe our obsession with the water, and use these words to bring you a sense of calm until the next …
