Excerpt from The Lure of Long Beach

The lure of the sea has been calling irresistibly to the sons and daughters of men since the pre-Adam days. Its mysteriousness, its vastness, its vagueness, its incomprehensibleness, its sublimity and its cruelty alike have been sung, and almost worshiped, for ages.

No man may place his finger upon the particular attribute of old ocean that most appeals to mankind - its lure is a combination of all its wonders. A sunrise on the sea has kept the artists of the world distracted since paint and palettes were invented; and a flaming, blood-red, golden-gloried sunset is beyond the depiction of finite mind; indeed, almost beyond finite comprehension, so majestic, so sublime is its superterrestrial grandeur.

From time immemorial legend and history tell of the people journeying toward the sea. Its call has been potent in all ages and in every latitude, and men have risked their lives upon its fluid, cold and pitiless bosom since anthropic animals first learned the rudiments of navigation by paddling a log with arms and hands.

"Break, break, break,
On thy cold gray stones, O Sea!
And I would that my tongue could utter
The thoughts that arise in me."
