“Dreams, memories, the sacred—they are all alike in that they are beyond our grasp. Once we are even marginally separated from what we can touch, the object is sanctified; it acquires the beauty of the unattainable, the quality of the miraculous. Everything, really, has this quality of sacredness, but we can desecrate it at a touch. How strange man is!

The Sound of Waves by Yukio Mishima  Interestingly, Mishima has written at least one other book about the ocean, which i guess is not a huge surprise in how pivotal it is in the Sailor Who Fell from Grave with the Sea.
