Famous quotes containing the word sailing:

    To sunny waters some
    By fatal instinct fly; where on the pool
    They sportive wheel, or, sailing down the stream,
    Are snatched immediate by the quick-eyed trout
    Or darting salmon.
    James Thomson (1700–1748)

    Theologians should not be ashamed to admit that they cannot enter a contest with such antagonists [the sceptics], and that they do not want to expose the Gospel truths to such an attack. The ship of Jesus Christ is not made for sailing on this stormy sea, but for taking shelter from this tempest in the haven of faith.
    Pierre Bayle (1647–1706)

    O western orb sailing the heaven,
    Now I know what you must have meant as a month since I walked,
    As I walked in silence the transparent shadowy night,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
