Shore Quotations

There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.
Lord Byron

There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.

Lord Byron

Like as the waves make towards the pebbl'd shore, so do our minutes, hasten to their end.
