Tides quotes by Bill O'Reilly

Tides quotes by Thomas Hardy
This is the weather the cuckoo likes,
And so do I;
When showers betumble the chestnut spikes,
And nestlings fly;
And the little brown nightingale bills his best,
And they sit outside at 'The Traveller's Rest,'
And maids come forth sprig-muslin drest,
And citizens dream of the south and west,
And so do I.
This is the weather the shepherd shuns,
And so do I;
When beeches drip in browns and duns,
And thresh and ply;
And hill-hid tides throb, throe on throe,
And meadow rivulets overflow,
And drops on gate bars hang in a row,
And rooks in families homeward go,
And so do I. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Tides quotes by William J. Clinton
#3. We simply have to transition from an economy based almost exclusively on oil and coal and natural gas to one that's far more diversified, that uses solar energy, and wind energy, and the power of the tides, and bio-mass energy, and eventually, develops hydrogen. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Tides quotes by Isaac Newton

Tides quotes by John Ridley
#7. Gay marriage will be universally accepted in time. But if I may be so bold as to say to gays and lesbians, don't wait for that time to arrive. Just as my father and his generation did not 'wait' for their civil rights, nor should you. The toothpaste ain't going back in the tube. The tide has turned. #Quote by John Ridley
Tides quotes by Jonathan Raban
#8. Seattle was built out on pilings over the sea, and at high tide the whole city seemed to come afloat like a ship lifting free from a mud berth and swaying in its chains. #Quote by Jonathan Raban

Tides quotes by Eliezer Yudkowsky
#11. If the joy of scientific discovery is one-shot per discovery, then, from a fun-theoretic perspective, Newton probably used up a substantial increment of the total Physics Fun available over the entire history of Earth-originating intelligent life. That selfish bastard explained the orbits of planets and the tides. #Quote by Eliezer Yudkowsky
Tides quotes by Arlin Sailesh Kapadia
#12. Crossing the ocean is secondary, planning how to pass the tides is the goal. #Quote by Arlin Sailesh Kapadia

Tides quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#15. The great men of earth are the shadow men, who, having lived and died, now live again and forever through their undying thoughts. Thus living, though their footfalls are heard no more, their voices are louder than the thunder, and unceasing as the flow of tides or air. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Tides quotes by Richard E. Byrd
#16. At the end only two things really matter to a man, regardless of who he is; and they are the affection and understanding of his family. Anything and everything else he creates are insubstantial; they are ships given over to the mercy of the winds and tides of prejudice. but the family is an everlasting anchorage, a quiet harbor where a man's ships can be left to swing to the moorings of pride and loyalty. #Quote by Richard E. Byrd
Tides quotes by Octavio Paz
#17. A Draft of Shadows'

desire turns us into ghosts.
We are vines of air on trees of wind,
a cape of flames
invented and devoured by flame.
The crack in the tree trunk:
sex, seal, serpentine passage
closed to the sun and to my eyes,
open to the ants.

That crack was the portico
of the furthest reaches of the seen and thought:
- there, inside, tides are green,
blood is green, fire green,
green stars burn in the black grass:
the green music of elytra
in the fig tree's pristine night;
- there, inside, fingertips are eyes,
to touch is to see, glances touch,
eyes hear smells;
- there, inside is outside,
it is everywhere and nowhere,
things are themselves and others,
imprisoned in an icosahedron
there is a music weaver beetle
and another insect unweaving
the syllogisms the spider weaves,
hanging from the threads of the moon;
- there, inside, space
is an open hand, a mind
that thinks shapes, not ideas,
shapes that breathe, walk, speak, transform
and silently evaporate;
- there, inside, land of woven echoes,
a slow cascade of light drops
between the lips of the crannies:
light is water; water, diaphanous time
where eyes wash their images;
- there, inside, cables of desire #Quote by Octavio Paz
Tides quotes by C.A. Hartman
#18. It was easy to mistrust the government, who some saw as the cause of the wars and other ills. But it was the Financials who had the real power, whose promises of economic growth and the regaining of their nation's former strength got them into elected positions, where they turned the economic tides. #Quote by C.A. Hartman
Tides quotes by Carrie Ryan
#19. That's just the way life is. Some days you wake up and the beach is clear and you forget about everything that surrounds us. And some days you wake up and it looks like this. That's the nature of the tides. #Quote by Carrie Ryan
Tides quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#20. There's no point in fighting the tide. It ebbs. It flows. You ride it. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Tides quotes by Katherine McIntyre
#21. The tides rolled up to crash against the shore while we sat feet from one another with the remnants of all we'd left unsaid driving us apart. #Quote by Katherine McIntyre
Tides quotes by William Rehnquist
#22. Somewhere "out there," beyond the walls of the courthouse, run currents and tides of public opinion which lap at the courtroom door. #Quote by William Rehnquist
Tides quotes by Simeon Ivanov
#23. Just as spring brings life to flowers and the moon moves tides on the shores, nothing is simply chance. Everything happens for a reason. Everything is a routine. #Quote by Simeon Ivanov
Tides quotes by Addison Moore
#24. When it's just you and me, there will be fire in the air. Forget the moon. The ocean will pull to our magnetism. We'll control the tides with our love. #Quote by Addison Moore
Tides quotes by Chloe Neill
#25. Rising tides lift all boats, #Quote by Chloe Neill
Tides quotes by Edsger Dijkstra
#26. When building sand castles on the beach, we can ignore the waves but should watch the tide. #Quote by Edsger Dijkstra
Tides quotes by Caroline Kaufman
#27. right now, I am a rough draft;
I am here to be
revisited and revised.
hard as I try,
I am not the girl poets speak of.
I am not made up of ocean tides
and my heart is not a crystal drum;
it will always be a weapon
more than anything.
I am an incomplete masterpiece,
full of crossed-out words and changes.
no one ever calls the first draft beautiful,
and I will never be the final piece. #Quote by Caroline Kaufman
Tides quotes by Alan W. Watts
#28. [T]he art of life is more like navigation than warfare, for what is important is to understand the winds, the tides, the currents, the seasons, and the principles of growth and decay, so that one's actions may use them and not fight them. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Tides quotes by Francesca Zappia
#29. My heart jumps out of staccato rhythm in my chest and my stomach sloshes around like the great foaming tides of Orcus. #Quote by Francesca Zappia
Tides quotes by Salman Rushdie
#30. The thing about literature is that, yes, there are kind of tides of fashion, you know; people come in and out of fashion; writers who are very celebrated fall into, you know, people you know stop reading them, and then it comes back again. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Tides quotes by Marcel Theroux
#31. Of course, there are things that are indifferent to human opinion – gravity, the moondriven motion of the tides, the boiling point of water. But the finer details of reality – the state of a marriage, artistic merit, a person's true nature – have something delicate and consensual about them. #Quote by Marcel Theroux
Tides quotes by Walt Whitman
#32. Lo! body and soul!
this land! Mighty Manhattan, with spires, and The sparkling and hurrying tides, and the ships; The varied and ample land,
the South And the North in the light
Ohio's shores, and flashing Missouri, And ever the far-spreading prairies, covered with grass and corn. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Tides quotes by Russell Simmons
#33. Anyone whose mission is keeping people apart is swimming against a very strong tide. #Quote by Russell Simmons
Tides quotes by Thomas Wentworth Higginson
#34. Only yonder magnificent pine-tree ... holds her unchanging beauty throughout the year, like her half-brother, the ocean, whose voice she shares; and only marks the flowing of her annual tide of life by the new verdure that yearly submerges all trace of last year's ebb. #Quote by Thomas Wentworth Higginson
Tides quotes by Jaeda DeWalt
#35. I want to be intoxicated by the darkened ether of midnight, running through my fingers as sparkling stardust. I crave the taste of the ocean's salty tears, as her temperamental tides crash and break against the rocks. I yearn for the sweet scent of sun on my skin and the earthy musk of dirt giving way under my bare feet. I want to lay naked in golden fields, as i gaze up at an endless sky, dreaming my dreams, as Mother Nature's love washes over me like spiritual sunshine. #Quote by Jaeda DeWalt
Tides quotes by Corey Ford
#36. The name Alaska is probably an abbreviation of Unalaska, derived from the original Aleut word agunalaksh, which means "the shores where the sea breaks its back." The war between water and land is never-ending. Waves shatter themselves in spent fury against the rocky bulwarks of the coast; giant tides eat away the sand beaches and alter the entire contour of an island overnight; williwaw winds pour down the side of a volcano like snow sliding off a roof, building to a hundred-mile velocity in a matter of minutes and churning the ocean into a maelstrom where the stoutest vessels founder. #Quote by Corey Ford
Tides quotes by John Green
#37. Does John Green have a Hollywood Star?
A John Green does but he is not me.
He was a composer who won five Academy Awards for scoring such movies as An American in Paris and West Side Story.
Although today he is mostly forgotten which is a nice reminder that no matter what you do the tides of time will wash away your sandcastles. So there's no sense in reaching for some
foolhardy notion of immortality when there is
real work to be done
with real people,
right now. #Quote by John Green
Tides quotes by Saint Augustine
#38. Men go forth to marvel at the height of mountains, and the huge waves of the sea, the broad flow of the rivers, the vastness of the ocean, the orbits of the stars, and yet they neglect to marvel at themselves. Variant: Men go abroad to admire the heights of mountains, the mighty billows of the sea, the broad tides of rivers, the compass of the ocean, and the circuits of the stars, and pass themselves by. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Tides quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#39. Darkness settles on roofs and walls,
But the sea, the sea in the darkness calls;
The little waves, with their soft, white hands,
Efface the footprints in the sands,
And the tide rises, the tide falls. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Tides quotes by Jewel
#40. Sometimes the tide is just out. But it always comes back in again. In times of severe distress, we tend to get tunnel vision and think this feeling will last forever. It will not. #Quote by Jewel
Tides quotes by Kathy Lette
#41. Love is like a tide. When it's in, everything looks beautiful and inviting. Only when love recedes can you see the debris beneath the surface - the old bottles, the rusty prams, the sewage pipes, the bloated cats and dogs weighted down to drown. The man I had once loved so passionately I now saw as weak, gutted like a fish. #Quote by Kathy Lette
Tides quotes by Elizabeth Clare Prophet
#42. Your Real Self is the permanent atom of your identity, the rock of ages that remains unmoved by the restless tides of life. #Quote by Elizabeth Clare Prophet
Tides quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#43. The tide of history is turning women from beasts of burden and sexual playthings into full-fledged human beings. #Quote by Nicholas D. Kristof
Tides quotes by Doris Lessing
#44. It is individuals who change societies, give birth to ideas, who, standing out against tides of opinions, change them. This is as true in open societies as it is in oppressive societies. #Quote by Doris Lessing
Tides quotes by Steven Erikson
#45. Knowledge is not enough. It never is. It's the capacity to do something with that knowledge. To do it perfectly. Absolute timing. With devastating consequences. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Tides quotes by Maya Angelou
#46. Love builds up the broken wall and straightens the crooked path.
Love keeps the stars in the firmament and imposes rhythm on the ocean tides.
Each of us is created of it and I suspect each of us was created for it #Quote by Maya Angelou
Tides quotes by Mark Twain
#47. This is the fairest picture on our planet, the most enchanting to look upon, the most satisfying to the eye and spirit. To see the sun sink down, drowned in his pink and purple and golden floods, and overwhelm Florence with tides of color that make all the sharp lines dim and faint and turn the solid city to a city of dreams, is a sight to stir the coldest nature, and make a sympathetic one drunk with ecstasy. #Quote by Mark Twain
Tides quotes by Mick Herron
#48. Because we both know the tide's turning. The decent people in this country are sick to death of being held hostage by mad liberals in Brussels, and the sooner we take control over our own future, our own borders - #Quote by Mick Herron
Tides quotes by Jennifer Donnelly
#49. Love must be constant, not ebb and flow,
Like storms and frets, tides high and low.
For love's not love if one must force
The beloved one to stay the course. #Quote by Jennifer Donnelly
Tides quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#50. Don Enrique says a full moon pulls up the highest tides of the month, at midday and midnight. And it pulls them down to their lowest ebb when it is rising or setting. So says a man in a frock coat and breeches who, if he tried to row a boat, would fall out instantly and drown. But Leandro said the same thing about the moon and high tide, so it might be true. How can you know if the moon is going toward full, or disappearing? This evening the moon was half, and Leandro said it's dying away. You can tell because it's shaped like the letter C, not curved forward like D. He says when the moon is D like Dios, it is growing to fill God's sky. When dying away it is C, like Cristo on the cross. So, no good tides again for many days. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Tides quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#51. Open all your pores and bathe in all the tides of nature, in all her streams and oceans, at all seasons. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Tides quotes by Sanober Khan
#52. A single poem, alone
can turn tides
scatter galaxies
and burst forth with rivers
from paradise. #Quote by Sanober Khan
Tides quotes by Angelica Crystal Powers
#53. Once you learn to move in sync with the ebbs and tides of the energy of the universe in every interaction in your life, you will find yourself carried effortlessly to a place of astonishing affluence. When #Quote by Angelica Crystal Powers
Tides quotes by Jose Saramago
#54. Contrary to what is generally believed, meaning and sense were never the same thing, meaning shows itself at once, direct, literal, explicit, enclosed in itself, univocal, if you like, while sense cannot stay still, it seethes with second, third and fourth senses, radiating out in different directions that divide and subdivide into branches and branchlets, until they disappear from view, the sense of every word is like a star hurling spring tides out into space, cosmic winds, magnetic perturbations, afflictions. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Tides quotes by Jenny White
#55. Take your time in everything, until you feel the pull within yourself. Do not let yourself be guided by fear, or even by desire. And certainly not by the will of others ... Like the moon and the tides, the human heart has many phases. Wait for them. They will not be rushed. #Quote by Jenny White
Tides quotes by Jane Thynne
#56. It was about a year ago when I first made contact with members of the British Foreign Office. I volunteered my services and privileged information to a foreign power. Which is effectively treason, or would be, except that I regard it as pure patriotism. You see, Clara, I no longer recognize the Germany I love. I see these brutes strong-arming a small nation like Austria, and now threatening Czechoslovakia, because they can and because no one will stop them. I see them running riot with the rule of law - Germany, whose legal system is the greatest in the world, which has always stood for justice and right. And when I see this gang of thugs flooding the streets of my beloved country with tides of blood, I feel hatred swelling inside me. Damn Himmler and Heydrich and all the other sadists. I hate this false Germany, as much as I love the real Germany. And I intend to do something about it. #Quote by Jane Thynne
Tides quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#57. Dedicated to every strong soul who is in a domestic violence relationship, please know that you are not alone. There is no need to swim against the tides. Release your fear and know you are loved, wanted, cared for, and you are someone very special. You are strong enough to sweep the fear from your soul. You are bold enough to look fear in the eyes because, after all, you are the one who holds the keys to unlock how you want your life to be. You have what it takes to grab life by the hand because life is meant to be lived, enjoyed, and loved.
~Love is respect ♥~ #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Tides quotes by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
#58. This is what one thirsts for, I realize, after the smallness of the day, of work, of details, of intimacy - even of communication, one thirsts for the magnitude and universality of a night full of stars, pouring into one like a fresh tide. #Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Tides quotes by William Shakespeare
#59. Her virtues, graced with external gifts, Do breed love's settled passions in my heart; And like as rigour of tempestuous gusts Provokes the mightiest hulk against the tide, So am I driven by breath of her renown Either to suffer shipwreck or arrive Where I may have fruition of her love. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Tides quotes by William Styron
#60. My brain had begun to endure its familiar siege: panic and dislocation, and a sense that my thought processes were being engulfed by a toxic and unnameable tide that obliterated any enjoyable response to the living world. #Quote by William Styron
Tides quotes by Gil Courtemanche
#61. People, he told her, are shaped somehow by their climate and the land they live in. Those who live by the sea are like the currents and tides; they go and come, and discover many shores. Their words and loves are like water that slips between one's fingers and is never still. Mountain people have fought the mountain to win their place. Once they have conquered it they protect their mountain, and others coming from far below in the valley risk being seen as enemies. Hill people take some time before greeting each other. #Quote by Gil Courtemanche
Tides quotes by Chila Woychik
#62. The tides wash up the Pearl of Great Price; I see it clearly. There it is: the secret so secret that even Indiana Jones has yet to discover it. But it's mine.
It's a style pointer, a favorite agent, a best avenue for publication. It's a sure-fire fire-starter, a league of extraordinary information.
Shall we gather at the river and share? No. I found it. It's mine! #Quote by Chila Woychik
Tides quotes by Alexander Brome
#63. What art thou, life, that we, must court thy stay?
A breath one single gasp must puff away!
A short-lived flower, that with the day must fade!
A fleeting vapor, and an empty shade!
A stream that silently but swiftly glides
To meet eternity's immeasured tides!
A being, lost alike by pain or joy?
A fly can kill it, or a worm destroy!
Impair'd by labor, and by ease undone,
Commenced in tears, and ended in a groan. #Quote by Alexander Brome
Tides quotes by Mark Twain
#64. Out of the depths of my happy heart wells a great tide of love and prayer for this priceless treasure that is confided to my lifelong keeping. You cannot see its waves as they flow toward you, darling, but in these lines you will hear ... the distant beating of its surf. #Quote by Mark Twain
Tides quotes by Philip Larkin
#65. Long Sight In Age
They say eyes clear with age,
As dew clarifies air
To sharpen evenings,
As if time put an edge
Round the last shape of things
To show them there;
The many-levelled trees,
The long soft tides of grass
Wrinkling away the gold
Wind-ridden waves- all these,
They say, come back to focus
As we grow old. #Quote by Philip Larkin
Tides quotes by Michael Mullen
#66. I am convinced that America's great sea of goodwill can be, in fact, a rising tide, a tide that could lift every veteran and every family of our wounded and fallen. #Quote by Michael Mullen
Tides quotes by Maya Angelou
#67. To make a difference is not a matter of accident, a matter of casual occurrence of the tides. People choose to make a difference. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Tides quotes by Sarah Beard
#68. My hands moved up and down the keyboard, summoning great waves of music, each one crested with sorrow, loneliness, and anger. Tides of emotion rose and fell, gradually finding their way down my arms and to the keys, becoming harmonies that filled and then dissipated into the air like mist. #Quote by Sarah Beard
Tides quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#69. Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Tides quotes by Gelett Burgess
#70. Hurry not a woman's favor; neither forcer her hastily to surrender to thee. For she goeth into love as she goeth into the waters at the seashore; first a hand and then a lip goeth she in by littles. She diveth not, she leapeth not from the pier; but by gentle shocks and cries of protest she entereth slowly; yet when the waters of love encompass her, then she is supported. She swimmeth in her joy; she floateth on the tide of happiness. #Quote by Gelett Burgess
Tides quotes by Andrew Buchan
#71. I think life's a bit of what you make it and a little smidgen of you being the jellyfish, and the tide's just gently helping you along. #Quote by Andrew Buchan
Tides quotes by Hugh Ross
#72. Astronomers who do not draw theistic or deistic conclusions are becoming rare, and even the few dissenters hint that the tide is against them. Geoffrey Burbidge, of the University of California at San Diego, complains that his fellow astronomers are rushing off to join 'the First Church of Christ of the Big Bang.' #Quote by Hugh Ross
Tides quotes by Cecil Day-Lewis
#73. And yet this self, contains
Tides, continents and stars―a myriad selves,
Is small and solitary as one grass-blade
Passed over by the wind
Amongst a myriad grasses on the prairie. #Quote by Cecil Day-Lewis
Tides quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#74. There came to that room wild streams of violet midnight glittering with dust of gold, vortices of dust and fire, swirling out of the ultimate spaces and heavy perfumes from beyond the worlds. Opiate oceans poured there, litten by suns that the eye may never behold and having in their whirlpools strange dolphins and sea-nymphs of unrememberable depths. Noiseless infinity eddied around the dreamer and wafted him away without touching the body that leaned stiffly from the lonely window; and for days not counted in men's calandars the tides of far spheres that bore him gently to join the course of other cycles that tenderly left him sleeping on a green sunrise shore, a green shore fragrant with lotus blossums and starred by red camalates ... #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Tides quotes by Marie Lu
#75. And so they huddled together, waiting, hoping for a savior that would never come.
-Tides of a Midwinter War, by Constanze De Witte #Quote by Marie Lu
Tides quotes by Andrew Mellon
#76. There is no cause to worry. The high tide of prosperity will continue. #Quote by Andrew Mellon
Tides quotes by Gareth Roberts
#77. Rose, the moon is incredible. Everything down on Earth relies on it. Rats jump for it. Tides rush out from it. Humans kiss under it. Without it there'd be nothing down there worth the light. And that just happened by chance -trillions of odd against it- one bit of stardust meets another bit of dust. #Quote by Gareth Roberts
Tides quotes by Neel Mukherjee
#78. Mollycoddling was the mother's duty; the father's lay elsewhere. As a consequence, his four older children feared and respected him, as they had been taught to do, and the love the professed to feel, had they been asked and had they answered truthfully or even had access to the truth, was of a duty-bound, obligatory kind too, a love issuing from commandment and tradition and the notion of family, not one from the tides of the heart or the unbridled, inexplicable pull of feelings. If painted, that love would take the form of a polite and manicured wash of pleasant colours, not the hurl-and-splatter of impastoed reds. #Quote by Neel Mukherjee
Tides quotes by Herman Melville
#79. And heaved and heaved, still unrestingly heaved the black sea, as if its vast tides were a conscience; and the great mundane soul were in anguish and remorse for the long sin and suffering it had bred. #Quote by Herman Melville
Tides quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#80. At my most precarious, I balanced on a book, and the books rafted me over the tides of feelings that left me soaked and shattered. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Tides quotes by S. Jae-Jones
#81. Once upon a time, a savage, violent time, humans, goblins, kobolds, Hödekin, and Lorelei lived side by side in the world above, feeding, fighting, preying, slaying. It was, as I had said, a dark time, and Man turned to dark practices to keep the blood tides at bay. Sacrifices, you see. Man turned against brother, fathers against daughters, sons against
mothers, all to appease the goblins. To stop the needless deaths, one man - one stupid, foolish man - made a bargain with the old laws of the land, offering himself as a sacrifice. #Quote by S. Jae-Jones
Tides quotes by Steven Weinberg
#82. Before history there was science, of a sort. At any moment nature presents us with a variety of puzzling phenomena: fire, thunderstorms, plagues, planetary motion, light, tides, and so on. Observation of the world led to useful generalizations: fires are hot; thunder presages rain; tides are highest when the Moon is full or new, and so on. These became part of the common sense of mankind. But here and there, some people wanted more than just a collection of facts. They wanted to explain the world. #Quote by Steven Weinberg
Tides quotes by Elizabeth Strout
#83. ANYONE WHO HAS EVER GRIEVED knows that grieving carries with it a tremendous wear and tear to the body itself, never mind the soul. Loss is an assault; a certain exhaustion, as strong as the pull of the moon on the tides, needs to be allowed for eventually. #Quote by Elizabeth Strout
Tides quotes by Robert Dunbar
#84. Never forget the gender of mother earth. This planet is a body through which arterial tides pulse and surge, and within this fluid murk stir serpents, inchoate monstrosities of the amniotic id. #Quote by Robert Dunbar
Tides quotes by Jane Addams
#85. In the unceasing ebb and flow of justice and oppression we must all dig channels as best we may, that at the propitious moment somewhat of the swelling tide may be conducted to the barren places of life. #Quote by Jane Addams
Tides quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
#86. Some day, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love. Then for the second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire. #Quote by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Tides quotes by John Muir
#87. The tide of visitors will float slowly about the bottom of the valley as harmless scum collecting in hotel and saloon eddies, leaving the rocks and falls eloquent as ever. #Quote by John Muir
Tides quotes by W.B. Yeats
#88. ...Rose of all Roses, Rose of all the World!
You, too, have come where the dim tides are hurled
Upon the wharves of sorrow, and heard ring
The bell that calls us on; the sweet far thing.
Beauty grown sad with its eternity
Made you of us, and of the dim grey sea.
Our long ships loose thought-woven sails and wait,
For God has bid them share an equal fate;
And when at last defeated in His wars,
They have gone down under the same white stars,
We shall no longer hear the little cry
Of our sad hearts, that may not live nor die. #Quote by W.B. Yeats
Tides quotes by Richard E. Byrd
#89. Give wind and tide a chance to change. #Quote by Richard E. Byrd
Tides quotes by Mallory O'Meara
#90. The beauty of Milicent's life and work was, like that of many other women, purposefully hidden to rob her of her power and her influence. Milicent Patrick is the lady from the black lagoon and she's not alone. She's raised out of it now, but there are so many women – in every industry, living and dead – who are still in there. So many other stories are sunken in the depths of history and so many women are still shouldering the burden of harassment and abuse while trying to create. Thanks to technology and the bravery of countless women, the tides are finally changing. #Quote by Mallory O'Meara
Tides quotes by David McCullough
#91. The level of the Pacific was not twenty feet higher than that of the Atlantic, as had been the accepted view for centuries. Sea level was sea level, the same on both sides. The difference was in the size of their tides. (The tides on the Pacific are tremendous, eighteen to twenty feet, while on the Caribbean there is little or no tide, barely more than a foot. When Balboa stood at last on the Pacific shore, he had seen no rush of lordly breakers, but an ugly brown mud flat reaching away for a mile and more, because he had arrived when the tide was out.) #Quote by David McCullough
Tides quotes by Jackson Biko
#92. Opportunities come with tides. And very few men have tides come their way twice in a lifetime. This is your tide. You should get on it, and see where it takes you, possibly to the next level . #Quote by Jackson Biko
Tides quotes by W.P. Kinsella
#93. Baseball is the most perfect of games, solid, true, pure and precious as diamonds. If only life were so simple. Within the baselines anything can happen. Tides can reverse; oceans can open. That's why they say, "the game is never over until the last man is out." Colors can change, lives can alter, anything is possible in this gentle, flawless, loving game. #Quote by W.P. Kinsella
Tides quotes by Jasper Fforde
#94. Reading, I had learned, was as creative a process as writing, sometimes more so. When we read of the dying rays of the setting sun or the boom and swish of the incoming tide, we should reserve as much praise for ourselves as for the author. After all, the reader is doing all the work - the writer might have died long ago. #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Tides quotes by Edwin Way Teale
#95. The seasons, like greater tides, ebb and flow across the continents. Spring advances up the United States at the average rate of about fifteen miles a day. It ascends mountainsides at the rate of about a hundred feet a day. It sweeps ahead like a flood of water, racing down the long valleys, creeping up hillsides in a rising tide. Most of us, like the man who lives on the bank of a river and watches the stream flow by, see only one phase of the movement of spring. Each year the season advances toward us out of the south, sweeps around us, goes flooding away to the north. #Quote by Edwin Way Teale
Tides quotes by Tom Hanks
#96. I know what I have to do now, I've got to keep breathing because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring? #Quote by Tom Hanks
Tides quotes by Derek Landy
#97. There's no such thing as winning or losing. There is won and there is lost, there is victory and defeat. There are absolutes. Everything in between is still left to fight for. Serpine will have won only when there is no one left to stand against him. Until then, there is only the struggle, because tides do what tides do–they turn. #Quote by Derek Landy
Tides quotes by David Mamet
#98. Welcome to Chicago. This town stinks like a whorehouse at low tide. #Quote by David Mamet
Tides quotes by Tamora Pierce
#99. Waves are the voices of tides. Tides are life," murmured Niko. "They bring new food for shore creatures, and take ships out to sea. They are the ocean's pulse, and our own heartbeat. #Quote by Tamora Pierce
Tides quotes by Pat Conroy
#100. I loved these salt rivers more than I loved the sea; I loved the movement of tides more than I loved the fury of surf. Something in me was congruent with this land, something affirmed when I witnessed the startled, piping rush of shrimp or the flash of starlight on the scales of mullet. I could feel myself relax and change whenever I returned to the lowcountry and saw the vast green expanses of marsh, feminine as lace, delicate as calligraphy. The lowcountry had its own special ache and sting. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Tides quotes by Bob Marley
#101. In high seas or in low seas, I'm gonna be your friend ... I'm gonna be your friend. In high tide or in low tide, I'll be by your side ... I'll be by your side. #Quote by Bob Marley
Tides quotes by Haruki Murakami
#102. Of course it hurt that we could never love each other in a physical way. We would have been far more happy if we had. But that was like the tides, the change of seasons
something immutable, an immovable destiny we could never alter. No matter how cleverly we might shelter it, our delicate friendship wasn't going to last forever. We were bound to reach a dead end. That was painfully clear. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Tides quotes by Grace Draven
#103. see past the surface to the tides below. #Quote by Grace Draven
Tides quotes by Lord Dunsany
#104. All we who write put me in mind of sailors hastily making rafts upon doomed ships. When we break up under the heavy years and go down into eternity with all that is ours our thoughts like small lost rafts float on awhile upon Oblivion's sea. They will not carry much over those tides, our names and a phrase or two and little else. #Quote by Lord Dunsany
Tides quotes by Rupert Brooke
#105. I said I splendidly loved you; it's not true.
Such long swift tides stir not a land-locked sea.
On gods or fools the high risk falls–on you–
The clean clear bitter-sweet that's not for me.
Love soars from earth to ecstasies unwist.
Love is flung Lucifer-like from Heaven to Hell.
But–there are wanderers in the middle mist,
Who cry for shadows, clutch, and cannot tell
Whether they love at all, or, loving, whom:
An old song's lady, a fool in fancy dress,
Or phantoms, or their own face on the gloom;
For love of Love, or from heart's loneliness.
Pleasure's not theirs, nor pain. They doubt, and sigh,
And do not love at all. Of these am I #Quote by Rupert Brooke
Tides quotes by Caryl Phillips
#106. From Finding the Center to Reading and Writing: A Personal Account, the story remains the same: in a journey unique to myself, I left my worthless home, with its small people, and I sailed against the tides of chance and history looking for a better place
for the center
where I suffered greatly and made myself into a great writer. #Quote by Caryl Phillips
Tides quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#107. It's better to think of my life like that - part miracle, part madness. It's better if I accept that I can't control any of the things that matter. My life is a trail of shipwrecks and set-sails. There are no arrivals, no destinations; there are only sandbanks and shipwreck; then another boat, another tide. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Tides quotes by Pope Francis
#108. Have the courage to go against the tide of this culture of efficiency, this culture of waste. Encountering and welcoming everyone, [building] solidarity - a word that is being hidden by this culture, as if it were a bad word - solidarity and fraternity: these are what make our society truly human. #Quote by Pope Francis
Tides quotes by Alexander Pope
#109. The time shall come, when, free as seas or wind, Unbounded Thames shall flow for all mankind, Whole nations enter with each swelling tide, And seas but join the regions they divide; Earth's distant ends our glory shall behold, And the new world launch forth to seek the old. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Tides quotes by Philip Larkin
#110. They say eyes clear with age,
As dew clarifies air
To sharpen evenings,
As if time put an edge
Round the last shape of things
To show them there;
The many-levelled trees,
The long soft tides of grass
Wrinkling away the gold
Wind-ridden waves- all these,
They say, come back to focus
As we grow old.

- Long Sight In Age #Quote by Philip Larkin
Tides quotes by William Golding
#111. He became absorbed beyond mere happiness as he felt himself exercising control over living things. He talked to them, urging them, ordering them. Driven back by the tide, his footprints became bays in which they were trapped and gave him the illusion of mastery. #Quote by William Golding
Tides quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#112. The world is progressing. One man cannot slow it, no matter how determined he is.
He stopped in the path.
You cannot stop the tides from changing, Dusk. No matter how determined you are. His mother's words. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Tides quotes by Ella Dominguez
#113. How I love fear and anxiety; it's what makes the world go around and the tides ebb and flow. It makes my blood hum and my cock hard. Yes, I'm a sick and depraved fuck like that. #Quote by Ella Dominguez
Tides quotes by Lucas Regazzi
#114. Perhaps you're fascinated
by the contours of my cheeks
with skin like bed sheets that
hide all of the complexities of what's underneath,
and present an image of simplicity
(that is easier to digest than
skipping heart beats for hairy legs).

I wonder if
these next six nights
of not having to feel
so alone will make you
wondrous in keeping me
as a bedside table:
to place your hard times on
before you get the forty winks
your eyes need
to glisten in the midday light of my

And it's hard to
fall back into sleep
when I've fallen in love
with studying the one that lies next to me.
I wonder if you've found landscapes in my
elbows like I've found
ebbing tides in your forehead.

Perhaps your love for me is fleeting,
and you'll have moments where you
consider tearing yourself even further apart,
but as soon as it's possible
you close your eyes again,
fall out of the thought
and back into sleep.

But, perhaps you'll keep me as a bedside table:
to place your brain things in my cupboards,
to place your step dad in my cupboards,
to place your sad eyes in my drawers,
to put your heart ache in my
mouth, your desire for love in bite marks on my
neck, and your misty breath in my

whispering 'you are so important to me'.
-Bedside Table #Quote by Lucas Regazzi
Tides quotes by Sarah McLachlan
#115. I threw bitter tears at the ocean, but all that came back was the tide. #Quote by Sarah McLachlan
Tides quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#116. It is dirt that propels a flower to blossom,
heat that propels a candle to burn,
storms that propel a rainbow to form,
pressure that propels a diamond to glow,
wind that propels a bird to soar,
tides that propel a fish to swim,
waves that propel a ship to float,
darkness that propels a star to shine,
and hunger that propels a lion to roar.

It is pain that gives pleasure meaning,
sorrow that gives joy meaning,
despair that gives hope meaning,
fear that gives courage meaning,
turmoil that gives peace meaning,
anger that gives love meaning,
chaos that gives order meaning,
evil that gives good meaning,
and darkness that gives light meaning. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Tides quotes by Rahul Gandhi
#117. A rising tide raises all boats, but you need a boat to rise with the tide. What does he who does not have a boat do? #Quote by Rahul Gandhi
Tides quotes by Peter Atkins
#118. We are children of chaos, and the deep structure of change is decay. At root, there is only corruption, and the unstemmable tide of chaos. Gone is purpose; all that is left is direction. This is the bleakness we have to accept as we peer deeply and dispassionately into the heart of the Universe. #Quote by Peter Atkins
Tides quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#119. It's the tide. It's the dismal tide. It's not the one thing. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Tides quotes by Seth Shostak
#120. 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. #Quote by Seth Shostak
Tides quotes by Anne Michaels
#121. What is a man," said Athos, "who has no landscape? Nothing but mirrors and tides. #Quote by Anne Michaels
Tides quotes by Thomas Menino
#122. In the 1990s, we introduced Boston's community policing strategy. We reversed the tide of violent crime that threatened our city, and we established a national model for preventing and fighting crime. #Quote by Thomas Menino
Tides quotes by Sofka Zinovieff
#123. It is quite a big deal. It's so extraordinary that we female humans should be linked to the moon and the tides. It'd sound like science fiction if you made it up – mysterious planetary forces making us bleed. #Quote by Sofka Zinovieff
Tides quotes by Alexander Pope
#124. Know then thyself, presume not God to scan,
The proper study of mankind is Man.
Placed on this isthmus of a middle state,
A being darkly wise and rudely great:
With too much knowledge for the Sceptic side,
With too much weakness for the Stoic's pride,
He hangs between, in doubt to act or rest;
In doubt to deem himself a God or Beast;
In doubt his mind or body to prefer;
Born but to die, and reas'ning but to err;
Alike in ignorance, his reason such,
Whether he thinks too little or too much;
Chaos of thought and passion, all confused;
Still by himself abused or disabused;
Created half to rise, and half to fall;
Great lord of all things, yet a prey to all;
Sole judge of truth, in endless error hurl'd;
The glory, jest, and riddle of the world!
Go, wondrous creature! mount where science guides,
Go, measure earth, weigh air, and state the tides;
Instruct the planets in what orbs to run,
Correct old time, and regulate the sun;
Go, soar with Plato to th' empyreal sphere,
To the first good, first perfect, and first fair;
Or tread the mazy round his followers trod,
And quitting sense call imitating God;
As Eastern priests in giddy circles run,
And turn their heads to imitate the sun.
Go, teach Eternal Wisdom how to rule -
Then drop into thyself, and be a fool! #Quote by Alexander Pope
Tides quotes by Katherine Mansfield
#125. I love the night. I love to feel the tide of darkness rising, slowly and slowly washing, turning over and over, lifting, floating, all that lies strewn upon the dark beach, all that lies hid in rocky hollows. #Quote by Katherine Mansfield
Tides quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#126. :She sits by her window.
She sips at her tea.
She waits for her love,
To return from the sea.
Her suitors come calling.
She watches the tides,
And all the while Violet bides. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Tides quotes by David Case
#127. ... quite naturally, I am curious about behaviour which does not fit the natural patterns, which floats suspended at some unexplored level of the sentient sea and defies the tides and waves of society. #Quote by David Case
Tides quotes by Leon Uris
#128. With so much utter insanity all about, a man had to keep a clear head. Clement reckoned a scientist could actually chart the course of human events as one would chart the tides and waves of the sea. There were waves of emotion and hate and waves of complete unreason. They'd reach a peak and fall to nothingness. All mankind lived in this sea except for a few who perched on islands so high and dry they remained always out of the reach of the mainstream of life. A university, Johann Clement reasoned, was such an island, such a sanctuary. #Quote by Leon Uris
Tides quotes by Bayard Taylor
#129. And far and wide, in a scarlet tide, The poppy's bonfire spread. #Quote by Bayard Taylor
Tides quotes by Peter Benchley
#130. Reputations rise and fall almost as regularly as the tides. #Quote by Peter Benchley
Tides quotes by Morihei Ueshiba
#131. Consider the ebb and flow of the tide. When waves come to strike the shore, they crest and fall, creating a sound. Your breath should follow the same pattern, absorbing the entire universe in your belly with each inhalation. Know that we all have access to four treasures: the energy of the sun and moon, the breath of heaven, the breath of earth, and the ebb and flow of the tide. #Quote by Morihei Ueshiba
Tides quotes by Francine Rivers
#132. Can you see air you breathe? Can you see the force that moves the tides or changes the seasons or sends the birds to a winter haven?" Her eyes welled. "Can Rome with all its knowledge be so foolish? Oh Marcus, you can't carve God in stone. You can't limit him to a temple. You can't imprison him on a mountaintop. Heaven is his throne; earth, his footstool. Everything you see is his. Empires will rise and empires will fall. Only God prevails. #Quote by Francine Rivers
Tides quotes by Lewis Carroll
#133. Still, as Christmas-tide comes round, They remember it again - Echo still the joyful sound "Peace on earth, good-will to men!" #Quote by Lewis Carroll
Tides quotes by Algernon Charles Swinburne
#134. I shall sleep, and move with the moving ships, Change as the winds change, veer in the tide. #Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne
Tides quotes by John Hoeven
#135. It's a combination of targeting higher paying jobs in these growth areas and fostering closer cooperation with higher education; a rising tide that lifts all boats. #Quote by John Hoeven
Tides quotes by Mike Dooley
#136. Very often, when tides start turning, great gears start shifting, and gusting winds start blowing at the onset of a really wonderful dream's alignment with your present life, there is commotion, unpredictability, even turmoil.
So, hey, let's always assume that's the case whenever you experience commotion, unpredictability, even turmoil. K?
Let not your senses deceive, for even as the tempest may howl, just beyond it lies a serenity that could not otherwise find you. The storm before the calm, if you will. #Quote by Mike Dooley
Tides quotes by Matthew Norman
#137. The captain of a ship can run a great ship, but he can't do anything about the tides. #Quote by Matthew Norman
Tides quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#138. Amidst the swirling tides of frustration and overwhelm, there is always enough time to take a step back, gather your thoughts and say, I can do this! #Quote by Charles F. Glassman
Tides quotes by H.S. Crow
#139. To write is not just seeing the world through a kaleidoscope of possibilities, but a means to shift the tides of color that exist within it. #Quote by H.S. Crow
Tides quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#140. Still stands the forest primeval; but far away from its shadow,
Side by side, in their nameless graves, the lovers are sleeping.
Under the humble walls of the little catholic churchyard,
In the heart of the city, they lie, unknown and unnoticed;
Daily the tides of life go ebbing and flowing beside them,
Thousands of throbbing hearts, where theirs are at rest and forever,
Thousands of aching brains, where theirs no longer are busy,
Thousands of toiling hands, where theirs have ceased from their labors,
Thousands of weary feet, where theirs have completed their journey! #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Tides quotes by Alfred Marshall
#141. The laws of economics are to be compared with the laws of the tides, rather than with the simple and exact law of gravitation. For the actions of men are so various and uncertain, that the best statement of tendencies, which we can make in a science of human conduct, must needs be inexact and faulty. #Quote by Alfred Marshall
Tides quotes by Tobsha Learner
#142. Venus, the first star, has appeared, another child is born and the stream runs on. Water must be a celestial element for it has neither time nor history stamped upon it and is as constant as the tides of the sea or the rising of the Moon. I long for such constancy, be it in life or in comradeship. Memory is a great deceiver; it embroiders until naught is left but the glory and the pleasure. I have a noble spirit but I want to live. Tell me how to live and who to live for. I fear I shall surrender too much in love and then survive to regret it. #Quote by Tobsha Learner
Tides quotes by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
#143. People are like waves of the ocean, some cover you with tides of refreshment, whilst others drown you in floods of turmoil #Quote by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
Tides quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#144. She arches her body like a cat on a stretch. She nuzzles her cunt into my face like a filly at the gate. She smells of the sea. She smells of rockpools when I was a child. She keeps a starfish in there. I crouch down to taste the salt, to run my fingers around the rim. She opens and shuts like a sea anemone. She's refilled each day with fresh tides of longing. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Tides quotes by Katy Lederer
#145. Today, from the bridge, the East River is sparkling. The money is swirling around the tall buildings like tides or like tithes, And I wonder, does anyone swim in this river, I wonder, does anyone pray? #Quote by Katy Lederer
Tides quotes by Juliet Marillier
#146. Don't you long for something different to happen, something so exciting and new it carries you along with it like a great tide, something that lets your life blaze and burn so the whole world can see it? #Quote by Juliet Marillier
Tides quotes by Betsy Cornwell
#147. Shared, the pain was double, but only half so crippling. She couldn't bring herself to wish for the strenght to stand alone. #Quote by Betsy Cornwell
Tides quotes by Sonia Sotomayor
#148. That tide of insecurity would come in and out over the years, sometimes stranding me for a while but occasionally lifting me just beyond what I thought I could accomplish. Either way, it would wash over the same bedrock certainty: ultimately, I know myself. At each stage of my life, I've had a pretty clear notion of my needs and of what I was ready for. #Quote by Sonia Sotomayor
Tides quotes by Gian Kumar
#149. A successful man never allows his faulty of discrimination and judgement to be distributed by the rising tides of his emotions. #Quote by Gian Kumar
Tides quotes by Jacques Prevert
#150. Quicksands

Demons and Wonders
Winds and Tides
Yet in the distance the sea has
Demons and Wonders
Winds and Tides
And you
Like a seaweed the wind gently
In the sands of your bed you're
moving dreaming
Demons and Wonders
Winds and Tides
Yet in the distance the sea has
But in your half-opened eyes
Two small waves staid
Demons and Wonders
Winds and Tides
Two small waves to drown myself. #Quote by Jacques Prevert
Tides quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#151. And men go abroad to admire the heights of mountains, the mighty waves of the sea, the broad tides of rivers, the compass of the ocean, and the circuits of the stars, yet pass over the mystery of themselves without a thought. #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Tides quotes by Kiersten White
#152. There's a word for the first blush of youthful love free of desire. For longing to be with someone so much you would rather throw yourself to the tides than be without them. For the stale but steady relationship between faithful members of an arranged marriage. For how to feel about someone you thought was everything but ended up never feeling the same way about you. For the poison left over when you love someone and it ends so badly you cannot release the feelings. For the love between a mother and her children, a father and his children, a grandmother and her progeny, the love between two dear friends, the love that is the first building block of a lifelong affair. There's even a word for a love so devastating nothing before or after is ever seen the same. #Quote by Kiersten White
Tides quotes by Freya Stark
#153. Except in the eyes of a few fanatics (untrustworthy as all lovers) an unmitigated expanse of water is dull even when blue: not in a small boat, where you are part of the winds and currents and tides and are allowed to hold the tiller now and then; but from those decks which the shipping companies with subconscious insight try to make as suburban as possible so that the impact of the monster outside may be lessened, and where the unrecognized boredom is so deep that a wispy smear of smoke on the horizon will queue up a crowd as if for a Valkyrie passing. #Quote by Freya Stark
Tides quotes by Tricia Rayburn
#154. When the tides change, you have two choices. You can either stand there, letting the water wash over you and your feet sink deeper into the wet sand... or you can get out of the way. You can move up the beach - or off the beach, if you want. The point is to not get stuck. #Quote by Tricia Rayburn
Tides quotes by Jan Morris
#155. I write sourly, for disliking artificially conserved communites I have tended to see the salvation as more distressing than the threat: but in my more rational moments I do recognize that letting Venice sink, my own solution for her anxieties, is a counsel of perfection that cannot be pursued. She will be saved, never fear: it is only in selfish moments of fancy that I see her still obeying her obvious destiny, enfolded at last by the waters she espoused, her gilded domes and columns dimly shining in the green, and at very low tides, perhaps, the angel on the summit of the Campanile to be seen raising his golden forefinger (for he stands in an exhortatory, almost an ecological pose) above the mud-banks. #Quote by Jan Morris
Tides quotes by Debbie Ford
#156. Your soul is infinitely creative. It is alive and expansive in nature. It is curious and playful, changing with the tides of time. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Tides quotes by Alvin E. Miller Sr.
#157. As for me, I would rather be wrong for doing right than to be right while doing wrong. In other words, obey God rather than the cultural mores, denominational standards, religious traditions, and theological interpretations and practices. Sometimes society norms will try to make you think you are wrong when you are right. Other times, you may even be persecuted for doing the right things in the eyes of God. Whichever way the tides turn, you just have to be prepared to stand on holy ground for God. #Quote by Alvin E. Miller Sr.
Tides quotes by Martin Kaye
#158. She's so ugly, the tide wouldn't take her out. #Quote by Martin Kaye
Tides quotes by Anne Bishop
#159. The moon waxes and wanes. The tides ebb and flow. The seasons turn, each in their own time. Ever changing, never changing. Of course you'll change. The dance of life spirals, remember? Even when you return to a point, you're not in the same place. The dance would have changed you, whether you'd come here or stayed home. #Quote by Anne Bishop
Tides quotes by Jay Asher
#160. You need to figure out what you want, Josh. If that means you need to swim against the tide to get it, at least youre aiming for something that could make you very happy. #Quote by Jay Asher
Tides quotes by Susan Beth Pfeffer
#161. I'm the one not caring. I'm the one pretending the Earth isn't shattering all around me because I don't want it to be. I don't want to know there was an earthquake in Missouri. I don't want to know the Midwest can die, also, that what's going on isn't just tides and tsunamis. I don't want to have any more to be afraid of.
I didn't start this diary for it to be a record of death. #Quote by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Tides quotes by Lucia Berlin
#162. Time stops when someone dies. Of course it stops for them, maybe, but for the mourners time runs amok. Death comes too soon. It forgets the tides, the days growing longer and shorter, the moon. It rips up the calendar. You aren't at your desk or on the subway or fixing dinner for the children. You're reading People in a surgery waiting room, or shivering outside on a balcony smoking all night long. you stare into space, sitting in your childhood bedroom with the lobe on the desk... The bad part is that when you return to your ordinary life all the routines, the marks of the day, seem like senseless lies. all is suspect, a trick to lull us, rock us back into the placid relentlessness of time. #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Tides quotes by George R R Martin
#163. A smuggler must know the tides and when to seize them. #Quote by George R R Martin
Tides quotes by Vicki Pettersson
#164. He invaded my consciousness in the same way the ocean washes up on the beach, with sweeping tides of longing and regret, and with such power and raw force, I often woke with the taste of salt from my tears clinging to my skin. Joanna about Ben #Quote by Vicki Pettersson
Tides quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#165. Mrs. Gautier, I hear there are places online where you can sell children for a good price. Nick is still young enough, he should fetch enough to tide you over for a bit." – Rosa #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Tides quotes by Tarryn Fisher
#166. But I wonder about the people who never suffer from depression," she says, leaning forward. "How calloused their souls are to feel less than us." The us rings through my head. "Are they less actualized, less pessimistic, less able to taste the tang of reality on the tips of their tongues? Why are we the broken ones - those who feel things? Who are affected by the changing tides in society? #Quote by Tarryn Fisher
Tides quotes by John Cheever
#167. All things of the sea belong to Venus; pearls and
shells and alchemists' gold and kelp and the riggish
smell of neap tides, the inshore green, and purple
further out and the joy of distances and the roar of
falling masonry, all these are hers, but she doesn't
come out of the sea for all of us. #Quote by John Cheever
Tides quotes by Joseph Conrad
#168. All creative art is magic , is evocation of the unseen in forms persuasive, enlightening, familiar and surprising, for the edification of mankind , pinned down by the conditions of its existence to the earnest consideration of the most insignificant tides of reality . #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Tides quotes by Bryant McGill
#169. The tides of change have great purpose in our lives. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Tides quotes by June Hunt
#170. What an anchor is to a ship, hope is to the soul. Both ships and souls are kept safe by a firm, secure anchor that keeps holding despite turbulent winds and churning tides. #Quote by June Hunt
Tides quotes by Heidi Barr
#171. Once, in another lifetime, there was an ocean here, and if you plant your feet in the soil you can almost feel the ancients rising and falling like the tides of old as the storm gathers strength. #Quote by Heidi Barr
Tides quotes by Derek Landy
#172. Tides do what tides do–they turn. #Quote by Derek Landy
Tides quotes by Joseph Cornell
#173. Shadow boxes become poetic theater or settings wherein are metamorphosed the elements of a childhood pastime. The fragile, shimmering globules become the shimmering but more enduring planets - a connotation of moon and tides - the association of water less subtle, as when driftwood pieces make up a proscenium to set off the dazzling white of sea foam and billowy cloud crystallized in a pipe of fancy. #Quote by Joseph Cornell
Tides quotes by Emily Dickinson
#174. The Spirit lurks within the Flesh Like Tides within the Sea That make the Water live, estranged What would the Either be? #Quote by Emily Dickinson
Tides quotes by Faith Baldwin
#175. Some time ago my friend, Father Gilbert, sent me from Maryland a small leaflet, and on it it a sketch of water, sky, a boat and a solitary man, in blues and greens, and, a prayer.

...The few words are called "Breton Fishermen's Prayer' and they read:

Dear God be good to me,
The sea is so wide
And my boat is so small.

This is a prayer for us all, for the world is a wide sea and the vessel of our lives is small and vulnerable and there are reefs and rocks, tides and storms which we must encounter.

But on the wide sea there is light... #Quote by Faith Baldwin
Tides quotes by Charles Francis Potter
#176. Education is thus a most power ally of humanism, and every public school is a school of humanism. What can the theistic Sunday school, meeting for an hour once a week, and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five-day program of humanistic teachings? #Quote by Charles Francis Potter
Tides quotes by Lucy H. Pearce
#177. Once we start to work with Feminine power we begin to see that it is not our minds that are in control of this power – it ebbs and flows with the movements of the planets, the procession of the seasons, the moons and tides, our own internal cycles of menstruality, anniversaries, the events around us. All these and more impact our experience and expressions of power. We learn to become aware of these various patterns and their impact on us and work more consciously with rather than against or in spite of them. We learn that they are all part of the same process. We open towards the energy, rather than shut down to it. We learn to trust the flow. #Quote by Lucy H. Pearce
Tides quotes by Richard Jackson
#178. After All This"

After all this love, after the birds rip like scissors
through the morning sky, after we leave, when the empty
bed appears like a collapsed galaxy, or the wake of
disturbed air behind a plane, after that, as the wind turns
to stone, as the leaves shriek, you are still breathing
inside my own breath. The lighthouse on the far point
still sweeps away the darkness with the brush of an arm.
The tides inside your heart still pull me towards you.
After all this, what are these words but mollusk shells
a child plays with? What could say more than the eloquence
of last night's constellations? or the storm anchored by
its own flashes behind the far mountains? I remember
the way your body wavers under my touch like the northern
lights. After all this, I want the certainty of hidden roots
spreading in all directions from their tree. I want to hear
again the sky tangled in your voice. Some nights I can
hear the footsteps of the stars. How can these words
ever reveal the secret that waits in their sleeping light?
The words that walk through my mind say only what has

the wind. After a while, the smokebush will turn to fire.
After a while, the thin moon will grow like a tear in a curtain.

a burned out house. He is too young to remember the wa #Quote by Richard Jackson
Tides quotes by Kevin Hearne
#179. Hey Atticus, do me a quick favour before we go? its easy.
Sure. What is it?
Hold Granuailes staff for just a minute. You know, rest it on the ground so that its like a walking stick or something and the top of it is near your right cheek.
Granuaile and I traded weapons to humor him and I stood as instructed.
Thats perfect! Now say this like Sir Ian McKellen I am Atticus the White, and I come back to you now at the turn of the tide. #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Tides quotes by F.W.H. Myers
#180. In the boundless ocean of mind innumerable currents and tides shift with the shifting emotion of each several soul. #Quote by F.W.H. Myers
Tides quotes by Fay Weldon
#181. Much sheer effort goes into avoiding the truth; left to itself, it sweeps in like the tide. #Quote by Fay Weldon
Tides quotes by Seamus Heaney
#182. The dotted line my father's ashplant made On Sandymount Strand Is something else the tide won't wash away. #Quote by Seamus Heaney
Tides quotes by Brenda Peterson
#183. When I describe for my far-away friends the Northwest's subtle shades of weather - from gloaming skies of 'high-gray' to 'low-gray' with violet streaks like the water's delicate aura - they wonder if my brain and body have, indeed, become water-logged. Yet still, I find myself praising the solace and privacy of fine, silver drizzle, the comforting cloaks of salt, mold, moss, and fog, the secretive shelter of cedar and clouds.

Whether it's in the Florida Keys, along the rocky Maine coast, within the Gulf of Mexico's warm curves, on the brave Outer Banks; or, for those who nestle near inland seas, such as the brine-steeped Great Salk Lake or the Midwest's Great Lakes - water is alive and in relationship with those of us who are blessed with such a world-shaping, yet abiding, intimate ally.

Every day I am moved by the double life of water - her power and her humility. But most of all, I am grateful for the partnership of this great body of inland sea. Living by water, I am never alone. Just as water has sculpted soil and canyon, it also molds my own living space, and every story I tell.

…Living by water restores my sense of balance and natural rhythm - the ebb and flow of high tides and low tides, so like the rise and fall of everyday life. Wind, water, waves are not simply a backdrop to my life, they are steady companions. And that is the grace, the gift of inviting nature to live inside my home. Like a Chambered Nautilus I spin out my #Quote by Brenda Peterson
Tides quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#184. Come in, O strong and deep love of Jesus, like the sea at the flood in spring tides, cover all my powers, drown all my sins, wash out all my cares, lift up my earth bound soul, and float it right up to my Lord's feet, and there let me lie, a poor broken shell, washed up by his love, having no virtue or value; and only venturing to whisper to him that if he will put his ear to me, he will hear within my heart faint echoes of the vast waves of his own love which have brought me where it is my delight to lie, even at his feet for ever. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Tides quotes by Haruki Murakami
#185. It was the first time he had seen her smile. It was the faintest of smiles, yet he felt the tides start to shift all over the world. He knew it was happening. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Tides quotes by Nora Ephron
#186. Do you believe in love?" he said. Sometimes I believe that love dies but hope springs eternal. Sometimes I believe that hope dies but love springs eternal. Sometimes I believe that sex plus guilt equals love, and sometimes I believe that sex plus guilt equals good sex. Sometimes I believe that love is as natural as the tides, and sometimes I believe that love is an act of will. Sometimes I believe that some people are better at love than others, and sometimes I believe that everyone is faking it. Sometimes I believe that love is essential, and sometimes I believe that the only reason love is essential is that otherwise you spend all your time looking for it. "Yes," I said. "I do. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Tides quotes by Deanna Fei
#187. A love gone bad, a sea of bitterness: such an everyday thing. As ordinary as the tide, and perhaps as relentless. But tides turned, too. #Quote by Deanna Fei
Tides quotes by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
#188. When you love someone, you do not love them all the time, in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is an impossibility. It is even a lie to pretend to. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return. We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible, in life as in love, is in growth, in fluidity - in freedom, in the sense that the dancers are free, barely touching as they pass, but partners in the same pattern.

The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what was in nostalgia, nor forward to what it might be in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting it as it is now. Relationships must be like islands, one must accept them for what they are here and now, within their limits - islands, surrounded and interrupted by the sea, and continually visited and abandoned by the tides. #Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Tides quotes by Phineas Fletcher
#189. The dying swan, when years her temples pierce, In music-strains breathes out her life and verse, And, chanting her own dirge, tides on her wat'ry hearse. #Quote by Phineas Fletcher
Tides quotes by Amy Tan
#190. Love is tricky. It is never mundane or daily. You can never get used to it. You have to walk with it, then let it walk with you. You can never balk. It moves you like the tide. It takes you out to sea, then lays you on the beach again. Today's struggling pain is the foundation for a certain stride through the heavens. You can run from it but you can never say no. It includes everyone. #Quote by Amy Tan
Tides quotes by Herman Melville
#191. There is no life in thee, now, except that rocking life imparted by a gently rolling ship; by her, borrowed from the sea; by the sea, from the inscrutable tides of God. #Quote by Herman Melville
Tides quotes by Veronica Rossi
#192. As subdued as the crowd seemed, the tempers wafting his way seethed with rage. The tides weren't defeated. They were dry kindling, just waiting for a spark. #Quote by Veronica Rossi
Tides quotes by David Jeremiah
#193. If you feel the undertow of depression slowly pulling you out into the depths, don't rage at the heavens; don't wear yourself out trying to recover. Wait on God, rest in Him, and let Him pull your spirit homeward. All the tides of this world move toward Him. #Quote by David Jeremiah
Tides quotes by Rebecca Kauffman
#194. Mikey had asked his father about this feeling once, years earlier, when he was very small and before he had learned that it was foolish to talk plainly about feelings. Mikey had said, "I have a bad, sad feeling in me sometimes." His father said, "Me, too." And knowing that his father shared this had been such a great comfort to Mikey that over time he began to cherish that shadowy feeling, which proved to be as sure as the tides, as persistent and reliable as a dear friend, as real and as much a part of his universe as the sun. #Quote by Rebecca Kauffman
Tides quotes by Mindy McGinnis
#195. Why should I care if the tides rise again if I am only a corpse riding the waves? #Quote by Mindy McGinnis
Tides quotes by Fred Rogers
#196. When we choose to be parents, we accept another human being as part of ourselves, and a large part of our emotional selves will stay with that person as long as we live. From that time on, there will be another person on this earth whose orbit around us will affect us as surely as the moon affects the tides, and affect us in some ways more deeply than anyone else can. Our children are extensions of ourselves. #Quote by Fred Rogers
Tides quotes by Patrick Suskind
#197. If we want to discuss love, which after all we believe is something very special, it is not much help for someone to explain that it represents a universal basic principle governing the tides and the digestive system alike. He might as well tell us that death is a thermodynamic phenomenon affecting both the amoeba and a black hole in the constellation of Pegasus - and he would still have told us nothing. #Quote by Patrick Suskind
Tides quotes by Rita Mae Brown
#198. Language exerts hidden power, like the moon on the tides. #Quote by Rita Mae Brown
Tides quotes by William Shakespeare
#199. For now I stand as one upon a rock environed with a wilderness of sea, who marks the waxing tide grow wave by wave, expecting ever when some envious surge will in his brinish bowels swallow him. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Tides quotes by Drexel Deal
#200. When I snatched the gun out of his hand, it fired because the hammer was already pulled back. It made the thunderous sound that the .357 magnum is known for. Even though the sound itself was deafening, it was like beautiful music to my ears. Just a few short seconds ago, the odds were greatly stacked against me. Now the tides had turned. The odds were now stacked against them, and they knew it. When I turned around to face my pursuers, they were in an all-out retreat. All I saw were their backs. #Quote by Drexel Deal
