there is one spectacle grander than the sea,

that is the sky; 

there is one spectacle grander than the sky,

that is the interior of the soul.

  1. Such an interesting perspective. When I consider the grandness of the ocean and the sky..my thoughts expand out to God. I have often shared that for me, sitting on the beach examining the unique beauty and intricacies of one shell..in a sea of millions of shells..just reaffirms divine creativity and attention to detail on a scale I can not even begin to fathom. The beach (to me) is more inspiring than any cathedral on earth.

  2. I’d have to live another two life-times to go through all the incredible works of the amazing Victor Hugo…. here’s another ‘soulful’ quote…
    “The soul has illusions as the bird has wings: it is supported by them.”
