Famous quotes containing the word ships:

    Oh, let me midlife mourn by the shrined
    And druid herons’ vows
    The voyage to ruin I must run,
    Dawn ships clouted aground,
    Yet, though I cry with tumbledown tongue,
    Count my blessings aloud....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    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)

    Two lives that once part are as ships that divide.
    Edward Bulwer-Lytton (1803–1873)
