There were many seas. The sea roared like a tiger. The sea whispered in your ear like a friend telling you secrets. The sea clinked like small change in a pocket. The sea thundered like avalanches. The sea hissed like sandpaper working on wood. The sea sounded like someone vomiting. The sea was dead silent.
If men could get pregnant, abortion clinics would be like Starbucks - two on every block and four in every airport. And the morning-after pill would come in different flavors like sea salt and cool ranch.
Good-night; ensured release,Imperishable peace,Have these for yours,While sea abides, and land,And earth's foundations stand,And heaven endures.
A. E. Housman

The ball whizzes past like a bumblebee and the Indians are in the sea.
Navjot Singh Sidhu

The sea with an end can be Greek or Roman: the endless sea is Portuguese.
Look at the world, within the sea, there is no immortal.
