Famous quotes containing the word ships:

    And when we can with Meeter safe,
    We’ll call him so, if not plain Ralph,
    For Rhime the Rudder is of Verses,
    With which like Ships they steer their courses.
    Samuel Butler (1612–1680)

    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. . .

    Oxford Book of Light Verse, The. W. H. Auden, ed. (1938)

    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)
