Famous quotes containing the word cape:

    Wishing to get a better view than I had yet had of the ocean, which, we are told, covers more than two thirds of the globe, but of which a man who lives a few miles inland may never see any trace, more than of another world, I made a visit to Cape Cod.... But having come so fresh to the sea, I have got but little salted.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The Great South Beach of Long Island,... though wild and desolate, as it wants the bold bank,... possesses but half the grandeur of Cape Cod in my eyes, nor is the imagination contented with its southern aspect.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Round the cape of a sudden came the sea,
    And the sun looked over the mountain’s rim:
    And straight was a path of gold for him,
    And the need of a world of men for me.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)
