"The foaming sea, adorned with an undulation ten thousand times fractured in a way that can be playful or, also, threatening. Here is the eternal ambiguity of the liquid element that can enliven or annihilate. The sea - it is smooth and elusive, childlike, indomitable, and limitless - unlimited and enigmatic, like the woman in the world" (Ernest Fraenkel, Zarfin, Geneva, Editions Pierre Cailler, 1963, non-paginated).
