Control stops with the shore.


Roll on, deep and dark blue ocean, roll. Ten thousand fleets sweep over thee in vain. Man marks the earth with ruin, but his control stops with the shore.
- Lord Byron

It really is like that, the huge, invincible ocean can never be conquered, we can only enjoy its deep, powerful beauty while standing on the shore, on the edges.
Another lovely match Luisa!
