Famous quotes containing the word ebb:

    For even satire is a form of sympathy. It is the way our sympathy flows and recoils that really determines our lives. And here lies the vast importance of the novel, properly handled. It can inform and lead into new places our sympathy away in recoil from things gone dead. Therefore the novel, properly handled, can reveal the most secret places of life: for it is the passional secret places of life, above all, that the tide of sensitive awareness needs to ebb and flow, cleansing and freshening.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    There’s nothing constant in the world,
    All ebb and flow, and every shape that’s born
    Bears in its womb the seeds of change.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

    You are now
    In London, that great sea, whose ebb and flow
    At once is deaf and loud, and on the shore
    Vomits its wrecks, and still howls on for more.
    Yet in its depth what treasures!
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
