I don't know if I've just missed this quote or if anyone hasn't used it yet, but one of my favorites is:
All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea -- whether it is to sail or to watch it -- we are going back from whence we came.
John F. Kennedy, Speech given at Newport at the dinner before the America's Cup Races, September 1962

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever. - Jacques Yves Cousteau
