“It is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt water that exists in the ocean, and therefore we have salt in our blood, in our sweat and in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came.”
John F. Kennedy
