SHORE. Land on the side of the sea, a lake, or a river, is called the shore. Strictly speaking, however, when the water does not ebb and flow, in a river, there is no shore. See 4 Hill, N. Y. Rep. 375; 6 Cowen, 547; and Seashore.

To see the shore in your dream, denotes that you are satisfying your emotional needs and any inner turmoil has been resolved. It also symbolizes a place where the conscious mind meets the unconscious.afford support, aquatic, back, back up, balneal, bank, beam, bear, bear out, bear up, berm, board, bolster, bolster up, border, bordure, brace, brim, brink, broadside, brow, buoy up, buttress, carry, cheek, chop, coast, coastal, coastland, coastline, column, cradle, crutch, cushion, deep-sea, edge, embankment, estuarine, featheredge, finance, flange, flank, foreshore, frame, fringe, fund, give support, grallatorial, hand, handedness, haunch, hem, hip, hold, hold up, ironbound coast, jowl, keep, keep afloat, keep up, labellum, labium, labrum, laterality, ledge, lend support, lido, limb, limbus, lip, list, littoral, mainstay, maintain, many-sidedness, marge, margin, multilaterality, natant, natatorial, natatory, pillow, plage, planking, playa, profile, prop, prop up, quarter, ragged edge, reinforce, rim, riparial, riparian, riparious, riverbank, riverside, riviera, rockbound coast, sands, sea margin, seabank, seabeach, seaboard, seacliff, seacoast, seashore, selvage, shingle, shore up, shoreline, shoreside, shoreward, shoulder, side, sideline, siding, skirt, stay, strand, submerged coast, subsidize, subvention, subventionize, support, sustain, swimming, temple, tidal, tidewater, underbrace, undergird, underlie, underpin, underpinning, underset, unilaterality, upbear, uphold, upkeep, verge, water-dwelling, water-growing, water-living, water-loving, waterfront, waterside
