Famous quotes containing the word ships:

    I saw three ships go sailing by,
    Over the sea, the lifting sea....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Your mind and you are our Sargasso Sea,
    London has swept about you this score years
    And bright ships left you this or that in fee:
    Ideas, old gossip, oddments of all things,
    Strange spars of knowledge and dimmed wares of price.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Oh, let me midlife mourn by the shrined
    And druid herons’ vows
    The voyage to ruin I must run,
    Dawn ships clouted aground,
    Yet, though I cry with tumbledown tongue,
    Count my blessings aloud....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
