Famous quotes containing the words ship and/or merchant:

    A ship’s not a ship to me ‘til she gets her teeth into green water.
    John Rhodes Sturdy, Canadian screenwriter. Richard Rossen. Evans (Walter Sande)

    People run away from the name subsidy. It is a subsidy. I am not afraid to call it so. It is paid for the purpose of giving a merchant marine to the whole country so that the trade of the whole country will be benefitted thereby, and the men running the ships will of course make a reasonable profit.... Unless we have a merchant marine, our navy if called upon for offensive or defensive work is going to be most defective.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
