How rarely do our emotions meet the object they seem to

How rarely do our emotions meet the object they seem to deserve? How hopelessly we signal; how dark the sky; how big the waves. We are all lost at sea, washed between hope and despair, hailing something that may never come to rescue us.
Julian Barnes
And when she dreams, she dreams of a girl who was lost at sea but one day found the shore.
Gabrielle Zevin
Trash? The only trash I see here are two little boys lost at sea and a pathetic excuse for a seaworthy vessel!
Davy Jones
Our shipment of mowers was lost at sea and while we waited, winter descended and covered our green lawns with snow. That taught me a key lesson, the importance of timing. The shipping company lost the lawnmowers! By the time they showed up no one wanted them, as you can’t cut grass when it’s covered with snow.
Terry Matthews
He looked at the book, took my name, and consulted his records. Then he informed me I had been lost at sea and was dead. Under the circumstances, he could not possibly give me any money… Even the fact that he was dealing with someone who had been dead for several days failed to awaken interest in his official heart.
Elizabeth Kenny
There is nothing more enticing, disenchanting, and enslaving than the life at sea.
Joseph Conrad
I’d just like to think that there’s some kind of underworld where whoever’s been lost at sea is there… I dunno, there probably isn’t, but I’d like to believe there is.
Ellie Goulding
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), It’s always our self we find in the sea.
e. e. cummings
Every book that anyone sets out on is a voyage of discovery that may discover nothing. Any voyager may be lost at sea, like John Cabot. Nobody can teach the geography of the undiscovered. All he can do is encourge the will to explore, plus impress upon the inexperienced a few of the dos and don’ts of voyaging.
Wallace Stegner
