Klees Seaside quotes by Marguerite Duras
#1. Sometimes your gaze alone scares me. Sometimes I've never seen you before. I no longer know what you're doing here, in this popular seaside resort, in this dull, crowded season, where you are even more alone than in your regional capital.

The better to kill you, perhaps, or to drive you away, I don't know. I sometimes manage to feel I've never seen you before. That I don't know you, to the point of horror. That I have no idea why you're here, what you want from me, or what will become of you. Becoming is the only subject we never, ever broach.

You must not know what you're doing here either, with this woman who is already old, mad with writing.

Maybe this is just normal, maybe it's the same all over; it's nothing, you came simply because you were desperate, as you are every day of your life. And also during certain summers at certain times of day or night when the sun quits the sky and slips into the sea, every evening, always, you cannot help wanting to die. This I know.

I see the two of us lost in similar natures. I can sometimes be overwhelmed by tenderness for the kind of people we are. Unstable, they say, a bit nutty. 'People who never go to the movies, or the theater, or parties.' Leftists are like that, you know, they have no clue how to enjoy life. Cannes makes them sick and so do the grand hotels of Morocco. Movies and theaters, it's all the same. #Quote by Marguerite Duras
Klees Seaside quotes by Douglas Preston
#2. The town had a faint air of benign neglect that only added to its charm: a seaside village with white clapboard buildings, seagulls wheeling overhead, uneven brick sidewalks and local shops. They passed a gas station, several old storefronts with plate-glass windows, a diner, a funeral parlor, a movie theater turned into a bookstore, and an eighteenth-century sea captain's mansion, complete with widow's walk. A sign out front identified it as the Exmouth Historical Society and Museum. #Quote by Douglas Preston
Klees Seaside quotes by Marc Almond
#3. I can imagine moving out to the seaside at some point. I like Brighton, my sister lives there. I'm a seaside boy and whenever I go there, I find myself writing songs about it. #Quote by Marc Almond
Klees Seaside quotes by Ellie B. Morris
#4. It was the day of the school outing: a trip to the seaside, and it was gloriously hot. All the children of Year 6 were happy and excited – all except Timothy Jones. He was miserable, as usual. #Quote by Ellie B. Morris
Klees Seaside quotes by Patricia Goodwin
#5. In my dream I drank fully of water, but when I woke, I was thirsty. Ned Low #Quote by Patricia Goodwin
Klees Seaside quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#6. I didn't want to be in the teeming mass of the working class.[ ... ] I didn't want to live and die in the same place with only a week at the seaside in between. I dreamed of escape - but what is terrible about industrialisation is that it makes escape necessary. In a system that generates masses, individualism is the only way out. But then what happens to community - to society? #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Klees Seaside quotes by Henry Sy
#7. SM Seaside City Cebu: soon to be the Philippines' Largest Mall and the 4th Largest in the World #Quote by Henry Sy
Klees Seaside quotes by John Lubbock
#8. A poor woman from Manchester, on being taken to the seaside, is said to have expressed her delight on seeing for the first time something of which there was enough for everybody. #Quote by John Lubbock
Klees Seaside quotes by Umair Siddiqui
#9. There is no place like the beach... where the land meets the sea and the sea meats the sky #Quote by Umair Siddiqui
Klees Seaside quotes by William Cowper
#10. Not a flower
But shows some touch, in freckle, streak or stain,
Of his unrivall'd pencil. He inspires
Their balmy odors, and imparts their hues,
And bathes their eyes with nectar, and includes
In grains as countless as the seaside sands,
The forms with which he sprinkles all the earth
Happy who walks with him! #Quote by William Cowper
Klees Seaside quotes by Tessa Dare
#11. Blast. This day had not gone as planned. By this time, he was supposed to be well on his way to the Brighton Barracks, preparing to leave for Portugal and rejoin the war. Instead, he was…an earl, suddenly. Stuck at this ruined castle, having pledged to undertake the military equivalent of teaching nursery school. And to make it all worse, he was plagued with lust for a woman he couldn't have. Couldn't even touch, if he ever wanted his command back.
As if he sensed Bram's predicament, Colin started to laugh.
"What's so amusing?"
"Only that you've been played for a greater fool than you realize. Didn't you hear them earlier? This is Spindle Cove, Bram. Spindle. Cove."
"You keep saying that like I should know the name. I don't."
"You really must get around to the clubs. Allow me to enlighten you. Spindle Cove-or Spinster Cove, as we call it-is a seaside holiday village. Good families send their fragile-flower daughters here for the restorative sea air. Or whenever they don't know what else to do with them. My friend. Carstairs sent his sister here last summer, when she grew too fond of the stable boy."
"And so…?"
"And so, your little militia plan? Doomed before it even starts. Families send their daughters and wards here because it's safe. It's safe because there are no men. That's why they call it Spinster Cove."
"There have to be men. There's no such thing as a village with no men."
"Well, there may be a few servants and tradesmen. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Klees Seaside quotes by Robert Galbraith
#12. He had spent much of his childhood perched on the coast, with the taste of salt in the air: this was a place of woodland and river, mysterious and secretive in a different way from St. Mawes, the little town with its long smuggling history, where colorful houses tumbled down to the beach. #Quote by Robert Galbraith
Klees Seaside quotes by Dion Fortune
#13. He had a sudden twinge of conscience concerning his responsibilities at the seaside villa, but dismissed it as quixotic. What he was doing was harming no one, and the blessing and peace of it all was so great a boon. He had tried cutting it off drastically once, and the result had been an explosion of emotion he had no mind to precipitate again. What earthly need was there to give up his dream-woman who harmed nobody and helped him so tremendously? #Quote by Dion Fortune
Klees Seaside quotes by Jordan Hoechlin
#14. We dream in colors borrowed from the seaside #Quote by Jordan Hoechlin
Klees Seaside quotes by Anna Akhmatova
#15. Seaside gusts of wind,
And a house in which we don't live,
And the shadow of a cherished cedar
In front of a forbidden window ...
Perhaps there is someone in this world
To whom I could send all these lines. Well then!
Let the lips smile bitterly
And a tremor touch the heart again. #Quote by Anna Akhmatova
Klees Seaside quotes by Thomas Mann
#16. They walked, and the long waves rolled and murmured rhythmically beside them; the fresh salty wind blew free and unobstructed in their faces, wrapped itself around their ears, and made them feel slightly numb and deliciously dizzy. They walked along in that wide, peaceful, whispering hush of the sea that gives every sound, near or far, some mysterious importance. #Quote by Thomas Mann
Klees Seaside quotes by Gemma Cairney
#17. A pink sunset - one of the reasons I moved to the seaside in Margate. #Quote by Gemma Cairney
Klees Seaside quotes by Rachel Lynn Solomon
#18. While I love romance, I've never believed in the concept of soul mates, which has always seemed a little like men's rights activism: not a real thing. Love isn't immediate or automatic; it takes effort and time and patience.
The truth of it was that I'd probably never have the kind of luck with love the women who live in fictional seaside towns do. But sometimes I get this strange feeling, an ache not for something I miss, but for something I've never known. #Quote by Rachel Lynn Solomon
Klees Seaside quotes by Al McGuire
#19. Dean Meminger was quicker than 11:15 Mass at a seaside resort. #Quote by Al McGuire
Klees Seaside quotes by Thrity Umrigar
#20. And now she finally understands what she has always observed on people's faces when they are at the seaside. Years ago, ... she would notice how people's faces turned slightly upward when they stared at the sea, as if they were straining to see a trace of God or were hearing the silent humming of the universe; she would notice how, at the beach, people's faces became soft and wistful, reminding her of the expressions on the faces of the sweet old dogs that roamed the streets of Bombay. As if they were all sniffing the salty air for transcendence, for something that would allow them to escape the familiar prisons of their own skin. In the temples and the shrines, their heads were bowed and their faces small, fearful, and respectful, shrunk into insignificance by the ritualized chanting of the priests. But when they gazed at the sea, people held their heads up, and their faces became curious and open, as if they were searching for something that linked them to the sun and the stars, looking for that something they knew would linger long after the wind had erased their footprints in the dust. Land could be bought, sold, owned, divided, claimed, trampled, and fought over. The land was stained permanently with pools of blood; it bulged and swelled under the outlines of the countless millions buried under it. But the sea was unspoiled and eternal and seemingly beyond human claim. Its waters rose and swallowed up the scarlet shame of spilled blood. #Quote by Thrity Umrigar
Klees Seaside quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#21. …I notice that people always make gigantic arrangements for bathing when they are going anywhere near the water, but that they don't bathe much when they are there.

It is the same when you go to the sea-side. I always determine - when thinking over the matter in London - that I'll get up early every morning, and go and have a dip before breakfast, and I religiously pack up a pair of drawers and a bath towel. I always get red bathing drawers. I rather fancy myself in red drawers. They suit my complexion so. But when I get to the sea I don't feel somehow that I want that early morning bathe nearly so much as I did when I was in town.

On the contrary, I feel more that I want to stop in bed till the last moment, and then come down and have my breakfast. Once or twice virtue has triumphed, and I have got out at six and half-dressed myself, and have taken my drawers and towel, and stumbled dismally off. But I haven't enjoyed it. They seem to keep a specially cutting east wind, waiting for me, when I go to bathe in the early morning; and they pick out all the three-cornered stones, and put them on the top, and they sharpen up the rocks and cover the points over with a bit of sand so that I can't see them, and they take the sea and put it two miles out, so that I have to huddle myself up in my arms and hop, shivering, through six inches of water. And when I do get to the sea, it is rough and quite insulting.

One huge wave catches me up and chucks me i #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome
Klees Seaside quotes by Martin Parr
#22. I pride myself in being an aficionado of the British seaside. Throughout my career, I have visited and worked in many of the famous British resorts, from Great Yarmouth to Largs. #Quote by Martin Parr
Klees Seaside quotes by Quentin Blake
#23. I love the sea, but I avoid any sort of seaside resort that has skyscrapers or seaside entertainments. #Quote by Quentin Blake
Klees Seaside quotes by Rachel Van Dyken
#24. Demetri: It's about the girl I fell in love with. The taffy girl at Seaside. The very beautiful girl that I have to let go of, and it kills me to let go of the girl who stole my heart. A heart I won't ever give back, because it belongs to her now, my best friend. #Quote by Rachel Van Dyken
Klees Seaside quotes by Neil Gaiman
#25. She had such unusual eyes. They made me think of the seaside, and so I called her Ocean, and could not have told you why. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Klees Seaside quotes by Melissa Foster
#26. Everyone has a past. I have mine, you have yours, and we have ours. No matter what it takes, I will prove to you that our past, no matter how hurtful, didn't ruin the future we could have. Only we can either make that happen or run from it. It's our decision this time, Amy. There are no outside influences that can push us one way or the other. There's only you and me and what could be. #Quote by Melissa Foster
Klees Seaside quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#27. Orwell wrote easily and well about small humane pursuits, such as bird watching, gardening and cooking, and did not despise popular pleasures like pubs and vulgar seaside resorts. In many ways, his investigations into ordinary life and activity prefigure what we now call 'cultural studies. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Klees Seaside quotes by John Betjeman
#28. Topography is one of my chief themes in my poetry..about the country, the suburbs and the seaside ... then there come's love ... and increasingly; the fear of death. #Quote by John Betjeman
Klees Seaside quotes by John Cheever
#29. Each year, we rent a house at the edge of the sea and drive there in the first of the summer - with the dog and cat, the children, and the cook - arriving at a strange place a little before dark. The journey to the sea has its ceremonious excitements, it has gone on for so many years now, and there is the sense that we are, as in our dreams we have always known ourselves to be, migrants and wanderers - travelers, at least, with a traveler's acuteness of feeling." --from ""The Seaside Houses #Quote by John Cheever
Klees Seaside quotes by Terry Pratchett
#30. And, er, these stories about you..."

"Oh, all true. Most of them. A bit of exaggeration, but mostly true."

"The one about the Citadel in Muntab and the Pash and the fish bone?"

"Oh, yes."

"But how did you get in where half a dozen armed and trained men couldn't even - ?"

"I am a little man and I carry a broom," said Lu-Tze simply. "Everyone has some mess that needs clearing up. What harm is a man with a broom?"

"What? And that was it?"

"Well, the rest was a matter of cookery, really. The Pash was not a good man, but he was a glutton for his fish pie."

"No martial arts?" said Lobsang.

"Oh, always a last resort. History needs shepherds, not butchers."

"Do you know okidoki?"

"Just a lot of bunny-hops."


"If I wanted to thrust my hand into hot sand I would go to the seaside."


"A waste of good bricks."

"No kando?"

"You made that one up. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Klees Seaside quotes by Philip Treacy
#31. I grew up in the west of Ireland, and Galway was our local seaside resort. We'd go for one day of the year during the summer, and I have enduring memories of the sand and the sea. #Quote by Philip Treacy
Klees Seaside quotes by Henri Poincare
#32. I then began to study arithmetical questions without any great apparent result, and without suspecting that they could have the least connexion with my previous researches. Disgusted at my want of success, I went away to spend a few days at the seaside, and thought of entirely different things. One day, as I was walking on the cliff, the idea came to me, again with the same characteristics of conciseness, suddenness, and immediate certainty, that arithmetical transformations of indefinite ternary quadratic forms are identical with those of non-Euclidian geometry. #Quote by Henri Poincare
Klees Seaside quotes by Mohsin Hamid
#33. So what's Pakistan like? she asked. I told her Pakistan was many things, from seaside to desert to farmland stretched between rivers and canals; I told her that I had driven with my parents and my brother to China on the Karakoram Highway, passing along the bottoms of valleys higher than the tops of the Alps; I told her that alcohol was illegal for Muslims to buy and so I had a Christian bootlegger who delivered booze to my house in a Suzuki pickup. #Quote by Mohsin Hamid
Klees Seaside quotes by Josephine Hart
#34. There is an internal landscape, a geography of the soul; we search for its outlines all our lives. Those who are lucky enough to find it ease like water over a stone, onto its fluid contours, and are home. Some find it in the place of their birth; others may leave a seaside town, parched, and find themselves refreshed in the desert. There are those born in rolling countryside who are really only at ease in the intense and busy loneliness of the city. For some, the search is for the imprint of another; a child or a mother, a grandfather or a brother, a lover, a husband, a wife, or a foe. We may go through our lives happy or unhappy, successful or unfulfilled, loved or unloved, without ever standing cold with the shock of recognition, without ever feeling the agony as the twisted iron in our soul unlocks itself and we slip at last into place. #Quote by Josephine Hart
Klees Seaside quotes by Vanya Asher
#35. Growing up, I spent summers with my grandparents in a small seaside town in Croatia. It's the most beautiful place on the planet. I still go back every year. It reminds me of what's important in life. #Quote by Vanya Asher
Klees Seaside quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#36. Whether we live by the seaside, or by the lakes and rivers, or on the prarie, it concerns us to attend to the nature of fishes, since they are not phenomena confined to certain localities only, but forms and phases of the life in nature universally dispersed. The countless shoals which annually coast the shores of Europe and America are not so interesting to the student of nature as the more fertile law itselffrom which it results that they may be found in water in so many places, in greater or lesser numbers. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Klees Seaside quotes by Bryn McCarren
#37. There can't possibly be anything more beautiful than Seaside Beach at sunset. #Quote by Bryn McCarren
