Famous quotes containing the word ships:

    I have seen old ships sail like swans asleep
    James Elroy Flecker (1884–1919)

    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)

    The northern sky rose high and black
    Over the proud unfruitful sea,
    East and west the ships came back
    Happily or unhappily....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
