The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
Describing the ocean
To stand at the edge of the sea,
to sense the ebb and flow of the tides,
to feel the breath of a mist moving over a
great salt marsh,
to watch the flight of shore birds that have swept up and down the surf lines of the continents for
untold thousands of years,
to see the running of the old eels and the
young shad to the sea,
is to have knowledge of things that are as nearly eternal as any earthly life can be.
