Famous quotes containing the word sailing:

    There’s precious little to say between day and dark,
    Perhaps a few words on the implacable will
    Of time sailing like a magic barque
    Or something as fine for the amenities....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    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)

    I saw three ships come sailing by,
    Come sailing by, come sailing by,
    I saw three ships come sailing by,
    On Christmas Day in the morning.
    —Unknown. As I Sat on a Sunny Bank. . .
