Tides of Life

The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.  ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The emotions attached to them were like sand castles in the tide, slowly washing out to sea.  ~ Nicholas Sparks

When the tides of life turn against you,
and the current upsets your boat,
don't waste those tears on what might have been;
just lie on your back and float.   ~ unknown

Someday after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.   ~ Teilhard de Chardin

The sea is calm tonight.
The tide is full, the moon lies fair
Upon the straits;- on the French coast the light
Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand,
glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay.  ~ Matthew Arnold
