That is definitely true and it seems that each wave even breaks a different way than the last one, haha.

Good morning again, Paul... I've read much of Nabokov... but this is a new quote for me.

Good morning Paul,

I've not heard this quote before but surely an appropriate topic to mull over!

Good morning. Your quote reminded me of a quote I heard in the TV series Dinatopia - One drop of water will raise the ocean's level.

What a fantastic quote on so many levels.  Love the picture also.  Something about the sound of waves crashing is calming.  Hope that you have a fabulous day!

Hi Paul- now this was a "ponderific" quote!!! All sorts of meanings run through my head.

I have to agree with the comment left by Kathy Streib.  That's a "ponderific" quote.
