• What though the sea with waves continuall Doe eate the earth, it is no more at all ; Ne is the earth the lesse, or loseth ought : For whatsoever from one place doth fall Is with the tyde unto another brought : For there is nothing lost, that may be found if sought.

    Edmund Spenser (1840). “The Works of Edmund Spenser: With Observations on His Life and Writings”, p.247
