Famous quotes containing the words naval and/or action:

    It is now time to stop and to ask ourselves the question which my last commanding officer, Admiral Hyman Rickover, asked me and every other young naval officer who serves or has served in an atomic submarine. For our Nation M for all of us M that question is, “Why not the best?”
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    Let those who go home tell the same story of you:
    Of action with a common purpose, action
    None the less fruitful if neither you nor we
    Know, until the moment after death
    What is the fruit of action.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
