Famous quotes containing the word ships:

    And when we can with Meeter safe,
    We’ll call him so, if not plain Ralph,
    For Rhime the Rudder is of Verses,
    With which like Ships they steer their courses.
    Samuel Butler (1612–1680)

    Give blue-eyed men their swivel chairs
    To whirl in tall buildings.
    Allow them many ships at sea,
    And on land, soldiers
    And policemen.
    Arna Bontemps (1902–1973)

    Shuttles in the rocking loom of history,
    the dark ships move, the dark ships move,
    their bright ironical names
    like jests of kindness on a murderer’s mouth;
    Robert Earl Hayden (1913–1980)
