„There was a time when I believed I was the redeemed one, the boy borne safely home on the ebb of whatever freak tide carried Peter and Jamie away. Not any more. In ways too dark and crucial to be called metaphorical, I never left that wood.“

This Eastertide call into mind the men,
Now far from home, who, with their sweethearts, should
Have gathered them and will do never again.“

„I wiped away the weeds and foam,
And fetched my sea-born treasures home;
But the poor, unsightly, noisome things
Had left their beauty on the shore
With the sun, and the sand, and the wild uproar.“

—  Ralph Waldo Emerson American philosopher, essayist, and poet 1803 - 1882

Each and All, st. 3
1840s, Poems (1847)
Variante: I wiped away the weeds and foam,
And fetched my sea-born treasures home;
But the poor, unsightly, noisome things
Had left their beauty on the shore
With the sun, and the sand, and the wild uproar.
