I felt once more how simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. Nothing else.
-Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek
A fragrant breeze wandered up from the quiet sea, trailed along the beach, and drifted back to the sea again, wondering where to go next. On a mad impulse it went up to the beach again. It drifted back to sea.
-Douglas Adams, The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide: Five Complete Novels and One Story (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy #1-5)
