Famous quotes containing the words ship and/or station:

    You mustn’t be afraid of death. When this ship sailed, death sailed on her.
    —Charles Larkworthy. Denison Clift. Anton Lorenzen (Bela Lugosi)

    [T]here is no situation so deplorable ... as that of a gentlewoman in real poverty.... Birth, family, and education become misfortunes when we cannot attain some means of supporting ourselves in the station they throw us into. Our friends and former acquaintances look on it as a disgrace to own us.... If we were to attempt getting our living by any trade, people in that station would think we were endeavoring to take their bread out of their mouths.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)
