Famous quotes containing the word ships:

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

    A modern fleet of ships does not so much make use of the sea as exploit a highway.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)

    Give blue-eyed men their swivel chairs
    To whirl in tall buildings.
    Allow them many ships at sea,
    And on land, soldiers
    And policemen.
    Arna Bontemps (1902–1973)
