Famous quotes containing the words ship, gunnery and/or training:

    You live on hopes, I guess. You always dream that someday you might have a lot of money, your ship might come in. But if the ship doesn’t come in, I’m going to work as long as I can.
    Marion Gray (b. c. 1914)

    Just as before you went below;
    The world is as it used to be
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    I am not a suffragist, nor do I believe in “careers” for women, especially a “career” in factory and mill where most working women have their “careers.” A great responsibility rests upon woman—the training of children. This is her most beautiful task.
    Mother Jones (1830–1930)
