There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more. - Lord Byron | Renaldi made this with Spoken.ly
"They parted with this added aid afar the Proa darted like a shooting star, and gain'd on the pursuers, who now steer'd right on the rock which she and Torqil near'd. They pull'd; her arm, though delicate, free and firm as ever grappled with the sea, and yielded scarce to Torquil's manlier strength. The prow now almost lay within its length of the crag's steep, inexorable face, with nought but soundless waters for its base;" Lord Byron, "The Island", 1828 http://www.inhedited.com/
