Famous quotes containing the words beach and/or long:

    From the beach the child holding the hand of her father,
    Those burial clouds that lower victorious soon to devour all,
    Watching, silently weeps.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    As a father I had some trouble finding the words to separate the person from the deed. Usually, when one of my sons broke the rules or a window, I was too angry to speak calmly and objectively. My own solution was to express my feelings, but in an exaggerated, humorous way: “You do that again and you will be grounded so long they will call you Rip Van Winkle II,” or “If I hear that word again, I’m going to braid your tongue.”
    David Elkind (20th century)
