Famous quotes containing the words ports and, harbors and/or ports:

    All places that the eye of heaven visits
    Are to a wise man ports and happy havens.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    He is the best sailor who can steer within the fewest points of the wind, and extract a motive power out of the greatest obstacles. Most begin to veer and tack as soon as the wind changes from aft, and as within the tropics it does not blow from all points of the compass, there are some harbors which they can never reach.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    When its errands are noble and adequate, a steamboat bridging the Atlantic between Old and New England, and arriving at its ports with the punctuality of a planet, is a step of man into harmony with nature.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
