Famous quotes containing the word ports:

    It is true, we are such poor navigators that our thoughts, for the most part, stand off and on upon a harborless coast, are conversant only with the bights of the bays of poesy, or steer for the public ports of entry, and go into the dry docks of science, where they merely refit for this world, and no natural currents concur to individualize them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    O polished perturbation! golden care!
    That keep’st the ports of slumber open wide
    To many a watchful night.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    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)
