Famous quotes containing the word strand:

    You went on with your dying.
    Nothing could stop you. Not your son. Not your daughter
    Who fed you and made you into a child again.
    —Mark Strand (b. 1934)

    We all have reasons
    for moving.
    I move
    to keep things whole.
    —Mark Strand (b. 1934)

    The annals of this voracious beach! who could write them, unless it were a shipwrecked sailor? How many who have seen it have seen it only in the midst of danger and distress, the last strip of earth which their mortal eyes beheld. Think of the amount of suffering which a single strand had witnessed! The ancients would have represented it as a sea-monster with open jaws, more terrible than Scylla and Charybdis.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
