Thoughts for Thursday (2)

Welcome to Thoughts for Thursday! 

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Readers may respond by either commenting on the quote I put forward or contributing a quote of their own. I'll include a linky list, or you can just respond in the comments.

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is the sea. I'm collecting mermaid novels for my TBR so if anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them! 

“I am longing to be with you, and by the sea, where we can talk together freely and build our castles in the air.”  --Brahm Stoker, Dracula

(One of the best novels ever written, btw. Not that I'm partial or anything! :D)

What do you think this line means? How can we apply it to stories/characters? What does it make you think of? Does anyone have any other cool quotes about the ocean/sea?


  1. How's this? I always got a kick out of this one, and it's at least half relevant.

    “Why does Sea World have a seafood restaurant?? I'm halfway through my fish burger and I realize, Oh my God....I could be eating a slow learner.”
    -Lynda Montgomery

    1. LOL. I like it! Great quote! Thanks guys! :D
