50 Ocean Quotes For Everyone Who Loves The Beach

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 …

4 Short Love Stories By Anton Chekhov + His Most Romantic Quotes

Russian writers know the beauty and pain of true love.

Remembered as one of the most skillful writers in Russian literature (and one of the most treasured among short story authors of any nationality), Anton Chekhov‘s skill was beyond compare. His romantic stories explored many themes, including infidelity and truth in love.

He made no apologies about the effect his writing had on people, and by the time of his death was considered second only to Tolstoy among the most influential Russian writers. As any writer will tell you, their lives influences are what shows up on the page.

It’s no wonder that Chekhov’s writing is admired by romance lovers everywhere. He had plenty of experience. His pursuit of love and romantic adventures with countless women started in his teenage years and a visit to a brothel in his hometown. Although he married in 1893, he continued his quest for love, passion, and romance. This influence shows up in Chekhov’s romantic short stories.

Though we may never know whether his experiences made their way into his writing, the stories are evocative and powerful. No clear self-portraits have been found in his short love stories, but we do know& that by the end of his lifetime, he fell in and out of love and had affairs with more than a dozen women before he died from complications of tuberculosis at the early age of 44.

His short stories are thought of as some of the best in the world, and for good reason.

Here are four of the most romantic short stories by Chekhov short stories, plus quotes that summarize what makes these stories (and love) so powerful.

What it’s about: Widely considered Chekhov’s best short story, The Lady with the Dog explores what happens to two people who fall truly in love for the first time, despite being married to others.

Favorite line from this love story: “Her expression, her gait, her dress, and the way she did her hair told him that she was a lady.”

My thoughts: In this short story, a Chekhov reveals his extraordinary insight into the mind of a married woman, and how a man can take advantage of her unhappiness in marriage.

Dimitri, the central character observes his next soon-to-be lover at the moment when she first walks into a dining room of a restaurant. The man who sees is also married …

25 Best Romantic Quotes And Cute Ways To Say ‘I Love You’

Little things (like this!) mean a whole lot.

How strong is your communication with your partner? Do you find that the two of you text, email, nod at and grunt in reply to each other more than you typically have meaningful conversations with each other?

Admittedly, we all get caught up in our busy day-to-day lives, and often it’s our most important communication, expressing our feelings of love for our partners, that pays the biggest price.

When we forget to say those three little words — ‘I love you’ — often enough and with full sincerity, even in the form of note scrawled with one of the best, most inspiring love quotes you can find, our connection with each other begins to suffer.

The connection in the relationship may start to weaken so slowly that we don’t even notice as the distance continues growing.

In his New York Times Bestseller, The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts, marriage expert Dr. Gary Chapman urges couples to learn how to express their love for each other in the forms their partner gives and receives love most naturally, be it through physical touch, gifts, acts of service or devotion, quality time, or words of affirmation.

In particular, he stresses one important communication skill related to words of affirmation that all too often gets overlooked in our fast-paced digital society — and that method of connection is the written word.

Written — as in, with your hands and a pen a paper, not tapped with the tips of your fingers on the keyboard of your phone.

Think about it … love letters used to be epic! They were tied with ribbon, stored in boxes for decades, and passed down through generations.

Don’t worry, your expressions of love can be epic, too.

The beginnings of true love, the falling in love part, gives us starry eyes and the feeling of butterflies in our stomachs.

And as it grows, love gives us a confidante — that special someone to share our deepest, darkest secrets and our highest hopes and wildest dreams with — someone who sticks by our side even after hearing all about these things.

Love means always having someone around who understands us, even without having to tell them specifically what’s going on in our hearts and minds at any particular moment. Love means having someone who always put you first, even if you yourself don’t.

40 Relatable Quotes About Looking For Love To Keep You Happy When You’re Still Single

Everyone has an idea of the perfect partner, but are the expectations of your soulmate realistic?

Typically, at a young age, when people start to notice and be attracted to other people, we develop a certain type of person that we like. Some girls like a tall, dark and well-built man. Other’s like skinny, bean pole guys with a beanie and shy eyes.

Everyone, at some point, establishes, in their mind, the goal that they have for what their soulmate looks like.

I always wanted a guy who was a lot taller than me and built like a football player with blonde hair and blue eyes and a comforting embrace that could envelop me and make me feel like a dainty flower in his arms. I don’t think it’s too much to ask.

The thing is, my first real boyfriend ended up being nothing like that. He was two inches taller than me, had strawberry blonde hair and fit into all my clothes and made me feel like I was hugging myself because we were the same size. Not the same at all, but I loved him because of his personality. We connected and he made me laugh and feel loved and appreciated. He made me feel safe regardless of being able to fit into my shoes.

This is just one example of so many cases that I feel like I have seen and noticed and experienced where people think that they have a type of person that they plan on ending up with, but when it comes down to it, they will love who they will love and the rest won’t matter. They find someone who could be dead opposite from what they thought they wanted, but still be with them because their “type” of guy didn’t really matter that much in the first place.

So whether you’re looking for the perfect guy who is just your type, or you’re over the search and just waiting for your soulmate to walk into your life, take a look at this collection of the best looking for love quotes for single people to help you pass the time.
