Sea Monster

Sea Monster

Sea monsters are sea-dwelling mythical or legendary creatures, often believed to be of immense size. Marine monsters can take many forms, including sea dragons, sea serpents, or multi-armed beasts. They can be slimy or scaly and are often pictured threatening ships or spouting jets of water. The definition of a "monster" is subjective, and some sea monsters may have been exaggerations of scientifically accepted creatures such as whales and types of giant and colossal squid.

Famous quotes containing the words sea and/or monster:

    ...stare into the lake of sunset as it runs
    boiling, over the west past all control
    rolling and swamps the heartbeat and repeats
    sea beyond sea after unbearable suns;
    think: poems fixed this landscape: Blake, Donne, Keats.
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)

    The monster is never just there where we think he is. What is truly monstrous is our cowardice and sloth.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
