Larkey Sharks quotes by Derek Walcott
#1. Where are your monuments, your battles, martyrs?
Where is your tribal memory? Sirs,
in that gray vault. The sea. The sea
has locked them up. The sea is History.

First, there was the heaving oil,
heavy as chaos;
then, likea light at the end of a tunnel,

the lantern of a caravel,
and that was Genesis.
Then there were the packed cries,
the shit, the moaning:

Bone soldered by coral to bone,
mantled by the benediction of the shark's shadow,

that was the Ark of the Covenant.
Then came from the plucked wires
of sunlight on the sea floor

the plangent harp of the Babylonian bondage,
as the white cowries clustered like manacles
on the drowned women,

and those were the ivory bracelets
of the Song of Solomon,
but the ocean kept turning blank pages

looking for History.
Then came the men with eyes heavy as anchors
who sank without tombs,

brigands who barbecued cattle,
leaving their charred ribs like palm leaves on the shore,
then the foaming, rabid maw

of the tidal wave swallowing Port Royal,
and that was Jonah,
but where is your Renaissance?

Sir, it is locked in them sea sands
out there past the reef's moiling shelf,
where the men-o'-war floated down;

strop on these goggles, I'll guide you there myself.
It's all subtle and sub #Quote by Derek Walcott
Larkey Sharks quotes by Nicolas Cage
#2. I am not a demon. I am a lizard, a shark, a heat-seeking panther. I want to be Bob Denver on acid playing the accordion. #Quote by Nicolas Cage
Larkey Sharks quotes by Peter Benchley
#3. Look, the Latin name for this fish is Carcharodon carcharias, okay? The closest ancestor we can find for it is something called Carcharodon megalodon, a fish that existed maybe thirty or forty thousand years ago. We have fossil teeth from megalodon. They're six inches long. That would put the fish at between eighty and a hundred feet. And the teeth are exactly like the teeth you see in great whites today. What I'm getting at is, suppose the two fish are really one species. What's to say megalodon is really extinct? Why should it be? Not lack of food. If there's enough down there to support whales, there's enough to support sharks that big. Just because we've never seen a hundred-foot white doesn't mean they couldn't exist. They'd have no reason to come to the surface. All their food would be way down in the deep. A dead one wouldn't float to shore, because they don't have flotation bladders. Can you imagine what a hundred-foot white would look like? Can you imagine what it could do, what kind of power it would have?It would be like a locomotive with a mouth full of butcher knives. #Quote by Peter Benchley
Larkey Sharks quotes by Dan Florence
#4. Dolphins and sharks are natural enemies. Dolphins are like, "Quit eating us," and sharks are like, "Stop smiling all the time, you morons. #Quote by Dan Florence
Larkey Sharks quotes by Hannah Rothschild
#5. Only now that he had great swathes of time could he begin to have hobbies. This was why art was such an incalculable luxury: it sent out a message saying, "I have time to subcontract all the menial, dull chores out to others; I waste hours in idle contemplation of a piece of cloth covered in spots; I am an art lover; I am time-rich. I can mooch about in a sea of pickled sharks. #Quote by Hannah Rothschild
Larkey Sharks quotes by Peter Benchley
#6. I didn't invent the fear of sharks; it's as old as mankind, and that - to take that responsibility would mean that Mario Puzo should take the blame for the Mafia. #Quote by Peter Benchley
Larkey Sharks quotes by Tedd Arnold
#7. Nurse sharks have smoother skin than most sharks. It feels like sandpaper. #Quote by Tedd Arnold
Larkey Sharks quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#8. Sharks don't eat seafood because they like it, but because chicken can't swim. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Larkey Sharks quotes by Russell Hoban
#9. How do the turtles find Ascension Island? There are sharks in the water too. Some of the turtles get eaten by sharks. Do the turtles know about sharks? How do they not think about the sharks when they're swimming that 1,400 miles? Green turtles must have the kind of mind that doesn't think about sharks unless a shark is there. That must be how it is with them. I can't believe they'd swim 1,400 miles thinking about sharks. #Quote by Russell Hoban
Larkey Sharks quotes by Gary Larson
#10. You always hear a headline like this, 'Man Killed By Shark', you never hear it from the other perspective, 'Man Swims in Shark Infested Waters, Forgets He's Shark Food'. #Quote by Gary Larson
Larkey Sharks quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#11. The Earth is beautiful, and bright, and kindly, but that is not all. The Earth is also terrible, and dark, and cruel. The rabbit shrieks dying in the green meadows. The mountains clench their great hands full of hidden fire. There are sharks in the sea, and there is cruelty in men's eyes. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Larkey Sharks quotes by Brian Skerry
#12. The Oceanic White Tip is considered one of the most dangerous sharks in the sea along with the Great White and Tiger. It is responsible for some of the most famous episodes of man-eating in history, such as when the U.S.S. Indianapolis sank in 1945. #Quote by Brian Skerry
Larkey Sharks quotes by Lorraine Hansberry
#13. For if there are no waving flags and marching songs at the barricades as Walter marches out with his little battalion, it is not because the battle lacks nobility. On the contrary, he has picked up in his way, still imperfect and wobbly in his small view of human destiny, what I believe Arthur Miller once called "the golden threat of history." He becomes, in spite of those who are too intrigued with despair and hatred of man to see it, King Oedipus refusing to tear out his eyes, but attacking the Oracle instead. He is that last Jewish patriot manning his rifle at Warsaw; he is that young girl who swam into sharks to save a friend a few weeks ago; he is Anne Frank, still believing in people; he is the nine small heroes of Little Rock; he is Michelangelo creating David and Beethoven bursting forth with the Ninth Symphony. He is all those things because he has finally reached out in his tiny moment and caught that sweet essence which is human dignity, and it shines like the old star-touched dream that it is in his eyes. #Quote by Lorraine Hansberry
Larkey Sharks quotes by Jonathan Trigell
#14. The shark's just a shark, right? No one calls it Jaws. It doesn't call itself Jaws. The film is called Jaws, the shark is just a fucking shark. So how can you say, "I like the bit where Jaws bites the boat"? #Quote by Jonathan Trigell
Larkey Sharks quotes by Peter Benchley
#15. Without sharks, you take away the apex predator of the ocean, and you destroy the entire food chain. #Quote by Peter Benchley
Larkey Sharks quotes by Greg F. Gifune
#16. It's getting cold." "Yeah, I like it though." Sensing my discomfort he said, "Alan, it is what is. We just got to keep moving. Like sharks, right? We stop, we die. #Quote by Greg F. Gifune
Larkey Sharks quotes by Lia Habel
#17. I stepped free of Isambard and shoved Michael in the chest. I caught him off guard. He tumbled to the dock, and rolled into the water with a splash.
"I hope there are zombie sharks in there and they bite you and you die!" I screamed. #Quote by Lia Habel
Larkey Sharks quotes by Ernest Bramah
#18. Better a dish of husks to the accompaniment of a muted lute than to be satiated with stewed shark's fin and rich spiced wine of which the cost is frequently mentioned by the provider. #Quote by Ernest Bramah
Larkey Sharks quotes by Tracy Morgan
#19. I give [Barack Obama] a 10 [on a scale of 1 to 10] because he's not God, and he inherited a couple of wars, and a financial mess.I want to see him curse somebody out on TV. You can't finesse a bull. He's gotta throw down. He's in the shark tank. #Quote by Tracy Morgan
Larkey Sharks quotes by Chelsea M. Campbell
#20. I'm partial to telling all the sharks they're not as cool as they think they are, and that it's people like them who bankrupt the tooth fairy and don't leave any tooth money for the rest of us. Or we can make out some more. I'm planning on moaning, 'oh, Salty! You bad sea demon!' next time. Just so you're prepared."
Kat grins. "Who says we can't do both?"
"I knew I loved you." I lean in and kiss her. And then a shark swims by and I shake my fist at it and ask it where all my quarters are. #Quote by Chelsea M. Campbell
Larkey Sharks quotes by Paul Kwiatkowski
#21. The space center's proximity to my backyard came to signify an intersection between heaven and hell. Florida was somewhere between the two; it was America's phantom limb, a place where spaceships were catapulted out into the cosmos. Alligators emerged from brackish water. Vultures and hawks circled above. Mosquitoes patrolled the atmosphere at eye level. We shared an ocean with sharks and dolphins. There were no seasons, only variations of humidity. Time slithered, festering in a damp wake of recollections.

I believed in the Bermuda Triangle. I thought it would move in over Florida one night. By dusk an unknown force would vaporize us through a tear in the atmosphere. We'd be stuck, wandering in a parallel version of the same place, unaware that we were dead but dreaming.

People came here to vanish. #Quote by Paul Kwiatkowski
Larkey Sharks quotes by Michael Muller
#22. People don't need to be scared. I tickle sharks. I do, when they swim by. #Quote by Michael Muller
Larkey Sharks quotes by Barry B. Longyear
#23. Sharks don't kill because they're poor, criminal, insane, or repressed. A shark kills because it's a shark. #Quote by Barry B. Longyear
Larkey Sharks quotes by John Connolly
#24. His figures should have been through the roof; the economy was still unsteady, the president was hog-tied by his own compromised idealism, and Davis and his kind had succeeded in vilifying unions, immigrants, and welfare cases, making them carry the can for the greed of bankers and Wall Street sharks, thereby somehow convincing sane people that the poorest and weakest in the nation were responsible for most of its ills. What never ceased to amaze Tate was that many of those same individuals (the dirt-poor, the unemployed, the welfare recipients) listened to his show, even as he castigated those (the union organizers, the bleeding-heart liberals) who most wanted to help them. #Quote by John Connolly
Larkey Sharks quotes by Jerzy Kosinski
#25. There is serenity and calm under the water's surface. You move easily and glimpse a world you have never seen before. You think of running out of oxygen and the idea of sharks dart out at you. You sense that there is something treacherous hiding behind every reef; no matter how much you explore you won't ever know what it is. #Quote by Jerzy Kosinski
Larkey Sharks quotes by Truman Capote

Larkey Sharks quotes by Bill Bailey
#27. Orchestras have often been used to conjure up the natural world: Swans, sharks, trout, but not, as far as I know, the often maligned jellyfish. #Quote by Bill Bailey
Larkey Sharks quotes by Anthony Jeselnik
#28. I didn't care about the backlash. I think the reason it was so severe was because they didn't know anything about me in New Zealand. If I had made jokes about a shark attack in the US, no one would have cared. #Quote by Anthony Jeselnik
Larkey Sharks quotes by Bill Bryson

Larkey Sharks quotes by David Blaine
#30. But as they say about sharks, it's not the ones you see that you have to worry about, it's the ones you don't see. #Quote by David Blaine
Larkey Sharks quotes by Jarod Kintz
#31. I floated like driftwood in the ocean. I wasn't worried about sharks, because my bathtub is much too shallow. #Quote by Jarod Kintz

Larkey Sharks quotes by Eric Van Lustbader
#34. In Morocco, he was back in his element, a shark moving through deep and dangerous waters. But for thousands of years sharks have been bred to survive dark and dangerous waters. So too, Leonid Arkadin. #Quote by Eric Van Lustbader
Larkey Sharks quotes by Kurt Weill
#35. Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear,
And he shows them pearly white.
Just a jackknife has Macheath, dear,
And he keeps them out of sight. #Quote by Kurt Weill
Larkey Sharks quotes by Adam Young (Owl City), The Yacht Club
#36. I would rather go swimming with great white sharks than wade in romance 'cause I can never find the courage to ask her to dinner or even to dance. #Quote by Adam Young (Owl City), The Yacht Club
Larkey Sharks quotes by Ryan Bingham
#37. Make no mistake, your relationships are the heaviest components in your life. All those negotiations and arguments and secrets, the compromises. The slower we move the faster we die. Make no mistake, moving is living. Some animals were meant to carry each other. To live symbiotically over a lifetime. Star crossed lovers, monogamous swans. We are not swans. We are sharks. #Quote by Ryan Bingham
Larkey Sharks quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#38. Personally, I say, "Out of the frying pan and into the deadly pit filled with sharks who are wielding chainsaws with killer kittens stapled to them." However, that one's having a rough time catching on. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Larkey Sharks quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#39. Are you sure you can't just…maroon him on a remote island with a bottle of rum?" Etta asked, only half kidding. "Make him walk the plank straight into a shark's mouth?"

"Maroon him? Walk the plank?" To her surprise, he actually laughed. It felt like a reward to hear it. "Why, Miss Spencer, I believe there's a pirate's heart in you. I wish Captain Hall had stayed, if only so he could have told you some of his stories over dinner."

"Too bad," she agreed, relieved that a small bit of the tension had finally eased. "Do you know any good ones?"

"I'm not as good in the telling as he is," Nicholas said. "Perhaps you'd be interested in hearing the charming tale of pirates who disemboweled and cut out the heart of a British officer, soaked it in spirits, and ate it?"

Her jaw dropped. "Spirits? As in, alcohol? Was that supposed to make it taste better?"

"I'd imagine few things could improve the experience," he said. "But anything is possible with enough rum and courage, I suppose #Quote by Alexandra Bracken
Larkey Sharks quotes by John Gardner
#40. In university courses we do exercises. Term papers, quizzes, final examinations are not meant for publication. We move through a course on Dostoevsky or Poe as we move through a mildly good cocktail party, picking up the good bits of food or conversation, bearing with the rest, going home when it comes to seem the reasonable thing to do. Art, at those moments when it feels most like art
when we feel most alive, most alert, most triumphant
is less like a cocktail party than a tank full of sharks. #Quote by John Gardner
Larkey Sharks quotes by Drenda Keesee
#41. Sharks don't eat fish because of anything the fish do. They don't eat fish because those fish aren't good enough fish, or because those fish aren't nice enough to the sharks. Sharks eat fish because they are sharks. #Quote by Drenda Keesee
Larkey Sharks quotes by Beto Jimenez
