Famous quotes containing the words atlantic ocean, ocean and/or atlantic:

    The Atlantic Ocean was something then.
    John Guare (b. 1938)

    It is not one man nor a million, but the spirit of liberty that must be preserved. The waves which dash upon the shore are, one by one, broken, but the ocean conquers nevertheless. It overwhelms the Armada, it wears out the rock. In like manner, whatever the struggle of individuals, the great cause will gather strength.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    The Atlantic Ocean was something then.
    John Guare (b. 1938)
