Famous quotes containing the word sailor:

    Captain Bligh: Mr. Byam, you’re up late.
    Byam: It’s very warm below, sir.
    Captain Bligh: I hadn’t noticed it. A true sailor can sleep in an oven, if need be, or in a keg of ice.
    Talbot Jennings (1896–1985)

    He is the best sailor who can steer within the fewest points of the wind, and extract a motive power out of the greatest obstacles. Most begin to veer and tack as soon as the wind changes from aft, and as within the tropics it does not blow from all points of the compass, there are some harbors which they can never reach.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
