Reading inspirational and beach quotes has always been a stress relief activity and escape for me. Nowadays even more so. Now and then when I’ve had enough hearing of our global problems, ugly news and pessimistic comments, I take a much needed time out. Just a few minutes is all it takes to read my inspiring beach quotes, refocus and prevent injuries to myself or anyone else within my path. I’m kidding! The best part is I can sit in a corner whenever and wherever I choose to carry this out and I don’t have to pack or travel at all.
The Four Elements
According to ancient mythology and philosophers everything in nature is made up of the four basic elements, water, fire, wind and earth. No doubt water is the most awe inspiring , thought provoking and while gentle at times, the most powerful of all the elements. Not that Fire, Wind and Earth are any less important as I‘m sure any one of these standing alone will not carry the same magnificence that together they all do. I’m just a bit biased as I am a Scorpio, one of the three water signs and partial to surfs, waves, oceans and lakes. These four elements are considered the building blocks of the whole universe and are still looked upon today to make sense of the world.
Each day as we go about our ways we experience combinations of the different elements, or encounter them all within the same day. We are conscious of being warmed by the sun, we cleanse our bodies with water, we feel the wind blowing our hair or trees and walk about the earth. Around the world the color blue symbolizes and represents the water, the source of life.
Oceans of the World
The facts that water carries the energy and strength to calm and soothe us speaks for itself. Our planet is 71 percent water and 29 percent land mass. We have now 5 oceans including the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Southern and Arctic, listed in order of size.
Water is said to have feminine energy and the qualities of a Goddess. It is used for healing, cleansing, and purification purposes and most often associated with passion and emotion. Other common characteristics of those born within the water signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are of psychic nature, mystical properties and intuition. Water signs are the feelers, the nurturers and the caretakers.
No wonder we can find comfort in reading beach quotes and imagining the calm blue tranquil beach beyond. The mere act transport us to a better place. Some can literally engage all senses while reading and emerge refreshed from what I like to call a mini beach quote vacation. I hope these anonymous beach quotes inspire to make you happy, serene and stress free too. Read on - these are all by unknowns.
Clear Your Mind with these Beach Quotes
“I have always loved the beach. The smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm.”
“Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone.”
“I dropped a tear in the ocean, and whenever they find it I'll stop loving you, only then.”
“Eternity begins and ends with the ocean's tides.”
“As the ocean is never full of water, so is the heart never full of love”
“May your time be filled with relaxing sunsets, cool drinks and sand between your toes." Anonymous

What does the color blue symbolize ?
People through the ages have worshipped all water forms including rivers, clouds, mist, beaches, waterfalls and rain. The color blue alone emphasizes the cooling and relaxing qualities. An expansive blue sky and blue water beach remind us of peace and calm which more readily promote meditation and quick and ready insight into mundane problems. Blue is uplifting and the true color of intuition, inspiration, sincerity and spirituality.
