Claims the mighty shores beyond;
Shores no seaman ever hailed,
Seas no ship has ever sailed.“

„For what cause, youthful Sleep, kindest of gods, or what error have I deserved, alas to lack your boon? All cattle are mute and birds and beasts, and the nodding tree-tops feign weary slumbers, and the raging rivers abate their roar; the ruffling of the waves subsides, the sea is still, leaning against the shore.“

—  Statius Roman poet of the 1st century AD (Silver Age of Latin literature) 40 - 96
Silvae, Book V, Crimine quo merui, juvenis placidissime divum, quove errore miser, donis ut solus egerem, Somne, tuis? tacet omne pecus volucresque feraeque et simulant fessos curvata cacumina somnos, nec trucibus fluviis idem sonus; occidit horror aequoris, et terris maria adclinata quiescunt. iv, line 1
