Mensagem:  "Across the river lay the grand city" "The grand city is across the river from my house" 'Search' and 'seek' are very close in meaning, in some contexts identical. 'Seek' is much less used in everyday speech. When used in literature it is often in an epic or spiritual sense; 'search' is usually more mundane.
