I am a huge fan of the book "A Gift from the Sea" by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. The following quote from this amazing book inspired me to create a treasury which I have included below.
"The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea."
-Anne Morrow Lindbergh
