Famous quotes containing the word ships:

    The ships we sank with women and children aboard. The lifeboats we shelled. Mmm ... we were good at that.
    Emeric Pressburger (1902–1988)

    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)

    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)
