Long Beach

Famous quotes containing the words long and/or beach:

    Men greet each other with a sock on the arm, women with a hug, and the hug wears better in the long run.
    Edward Hoagland (b. 1932)

    When the inhabitants of some sequestered island first descry the “big canoe” of the European rolling through the blue waters towards their shores, they rush down to the beach in crowds, and with open arms stand ready to embrace the strangers. Fatal embrace! They fold to their bosoms the vipers whose sting is destined to poison all their joys; and the instinctive feeling of love within their breasts is soon converted into the bitterest hate.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
