Japanese writer Ryunosuke Satoro once wrote, “Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.”

American actress Drew Barrymore once said, “I pray to be like the ocean, with soft currents, maybe waves at times. More and more, I want the consistency rather than the highs and the lows.”

Abraham Maslow, the founder of humanistic psychology once said, “If I were dropped out of a plane into the ocean and told the nearest land was a thousand miles away, I’d still swim. And I’d despise the one who gave up.”

American actor Morgan Freeman once said, “If you live a life of make-believe, your life isn’t worth anything until you do something that does challenge your reality. And to me, sailing the open ocean is a real challenge, because it’s life or death.”
