Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

"I go down to the shore in the morning
and depending on the hour the waves
are rolling in or moving out,
and I say, oh, I am miserable,
what shall—
what should I do? And the sea says
in its lovely voice:

— Mary Oliver, from the book A Thousand Mornings 
Wonder Bar, 1934
