the sea of this world

The sea of this world interrupts our course, even although we already see where we are headed … Therefore, cling to Christ … He became the one, on which the weak may be borne, and cross the sea of this world and reach their native country; where there will be no need of a ship, for no sea is crossed.

Augustine of Hippo (Tractate 2 on John 6)

(With thanks to my friend Andrew.)
