A Sailor From York

Famous quotes containing the words york and/or sailor:

    I’m the end of the line; absurd and appalling as it may seem, serious New York theater has died in my lifetime.
    Arthur Miller (b. 1915)

    The sailor is frankness, the landsman is finesse. Life is not a game with the sailor, demanding the long head—no intricate game of chess where few moves are made in straight-forwardness and ends are attained by indirection, an oblique, tedious, barren game hardly worth that poor candle burnt out in playing it.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
