"The voice of the sea speaks to the soul," Kate Chopin observed, and we couldn't agree more. With a quotation for every day of the year, this wide-ranging tribute to the splendor of the oceans contains selections by such artists and writers as Emily Dickinson, Rainer Maria Rilke, Langston Hughes, E.B. White, Virginia Woolf, Herman Melville, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Dickens, Sylvia Plath, Pablo Neruda, and Vincent van Gogh, but also Jacques Cousteau, David Attenborough, Errol Flynn, and John F. Kennedy. The pages are a soothing shade of blue, with a fetching aquatic motif running along the bottom edges.
