Famous quotes containing the words ship and/or french:

    There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not: the way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.
    Bible: Hebrew Proverbs, 30:18-19.

    From the oracle of Agur, son of Jakeh.

    The only thing that one really knows about human nature is that it changes. Change is the one quality we can predicate of it. The systems that fail are those that rely on the permanency of human nature, and not on its growth and development. The error of Louis XIV was that he thought human nature would always be the same. The result of his error was the French Revolution. It was an admirable result.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
