Listen to the sea, and write what it tells you . . .
The sea always filled her with longing, though for what she was never sure.
—Cornelia Funke, Inkheart
It is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than in any substance that is in this Earth; and many of the Children of Ilúvatar hearken still unsated to the voices of the Sea, and yet know not for what they listen.—J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion
