This is blockquote 1 Lesson 5
This is the path I have chosen to follow...
A path filled with stars because they give me direction.
A path filled with sand and shells because I love the sea.
A path filled with flowers to smell along the way.
A path filled with quaint and curious creatures...just because.
A path in the sunlight because it makes me warm.
A path filled with family because they are love.
The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy or too impatient.To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith.
Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith.
One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach.
---waiting for a gift from the sea.

Heading 4. This is an example of Adjacent Sibling Selector .
This is paragraph one. Were Niagara but a cataract of sand, would you travel your thousand miles to see it? Why did the poor poet of Tennessee, upon suddenly receiving two handfuls of silver, deliberate whether to buy him a coat, which he sadly needed, or invest his money in a pedestrian trip to Rockaway Beach? Why is almost every robust healthy boy with a robust healthy soul in him, at some time or other crazy to go to sea?
This is paragraph two. Why upon your first voyage as a passenger, did you yourself feel such a mystical vibration, when first told that you and your ship were now out of sight of land? Why did the old Persians hold the sea holy? Why did the Greeks give it a separate deity, and own brother of Jove? Surely all this is not without meaning. And still deeper the meaning of that story of Narcissus, who because he could not grasp the tormenting, mild image he saw in the fountain, plunged into it and was drowned. But that same image, we ourselves see in all rivers and oceans. It is the image of the ungraspable phantom of life; and this is the key to it all.
The FIRST paragraph AFTER this heading 4 should be hot pink.
The Second paragraph AFTER this heading 4 should be lime green.
For the Love of the Sea.
I have always loved the sea and all that that implies-the sand and water, sunsets and seashells, hermit crabs and whales.
Have you ever watched pelicans fly in formation...with a beautiful sunrise or sunset for a background? Weird and wonderful birds so graceful in flight.
We'll always have our memories of the sea, long after our footprints on the beach are gone.
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) , it's always our self we find in the sea.
