The happiness of the bee and the dolphin is to exist. For man it is to know that and to wonder at it.
Cousteau quotes
The best way to observe a fish is to become a fish.
Cousteau
The sea, the great unifier, is man's only hope. Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: We are all in the same boat.




Cousteau Jacques-Yves quotes
When one man, for whatever reason, has the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself.
Cousteau Jacques-Yves
We have to prepare for what life could become in 40 years. We need to outline what is possible and what is impossible with the non-renewable resources of the Earth. What role will technological improvement play? Taking all this into account, what kind of life can we produce in the best way for 10 billion people? That's a problem that needs to be solved.
Jacques-Yves Cousteau quotes
The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.
Jacques-Yves Cousteau
No sooner does man discover intelligence than he tries to involve it in his own stupidity.
Cousteau Jacques-Yves quotes
However fragmented the world, however intense the national rivalries, it is an inexorable fact that we become more interdependent every day.
Cousteau
Man, of all the animals, is probably the only one to regard himself as a great delicacy.
Cousteau Jacques-Yves
We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one.
Jacques-Yves Cousteau
A lot of people attack the sea, I make love to it.




Jacques-Yves Cousteau quotes
People protect what they love.
Jacques-Yves Cousteau
What is a scientist after all? It is a curious man looking through a keyhole, the keyhole of nature, trying to know what’s going on.
Cousteau quotes
Sometimes we are lucky enough to know that our lives have been changed, to discard the old, embrace the new, and turn headlong down an immutable course.
Cousteau Jacques-Yves
The sea is the universal sewer.
