journey to the center of the earth -jules verne- The book was inspired by Charles Lyell's Geological Evidences of the Antiquity of Man of 1863 (and probably also influenced by Lyell's earlier ground-breaking work "Principles Of Geology", published 1830–33)
Jules Verne, 22 years, 1850. "The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides."
.Waves.. Endless waves of being; of submersion and emersion. Floating high in the sky as a cloud of beautiful thoughts and sinking like a rock amidst the interrupting mundanity; life itself as an ever-changing, fluctuating wave of energy. All we have to do is learn how to ride that wave; to maintain constant momentum. ~ quote @JulieV
