And remember, small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can change the world.
– Howard Zinn

You are not a drop in the ocean, you are the entire ocean in a drop.

-RUMI

With every breath we take, every drop of water we drink, we are connected to the ocean.

-SYLVIA EARLE

The sea, the great unifier, is man's only hope. Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: We are all in the same boat.

-JACQUES COUSTEAU

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, commited citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

-MARGARET MEAD

In every outthrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth.

-RACHEL CARSON

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

-MOTHER TERESA

If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.

-BARACK OBAMA

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch, we are going back from whence we came.

-JOHN F KENNEDY

Together we can face any challenges as deep as the ocean and as high as the sky.

-SONIA GANDHI
