Looking for the source of a Cousteau quotation

I’m coming up for air during my hiatus with a request to Science Blog readers.

I want to use the quote below from Jacques Yves Cousteau as a featured quotation in a chapter on undersea exploration in a children’s book I’m writing. It’s all over the Internet, but no one cites the place it first appeared.

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.

Can anyone here help? If so, you can post it here or find an e-mail link at my website.

Thanks, all!

  1. I guess the Anonymous poster missed the fact that I knew who said (or wrote) that Cousteau quotation.

    What I need is the original source. In what book or on what episode on TV did it appear?
