Famous quotes containing the word atlantic:

    Obscurest night involv’d the sky,
    Th’ Atlantic billows roar’d,
    When such a destin’d wretch as I,
    Wash’d headlong from on board,
    Of friends, of hope, of all bereft,
    His floating home for ever left.
    William Cowper (1731–1800)

    We are eager to tunnel under the Atlantic and bring the Old World some weeks nearer to the New; but perchance the first news that will leak through into the broad, flapping American ear will be that the Princess Adelaide has the whooping cough.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The battle of the North Atlantic is a grim business, and it isn’t going to be won by charm and personality.
