Famous quotes containing the word ships:

    Shuttles in the rocking loom of history,
    the dark ships move, the dark ships move,
    their bright ironical names
    like jests of kindness on a murderer’s mouth;
    Robert Earl Hayden (1913–1980)

    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)

    The northern sky rose high and black
    Over the proud unfruitful sea,
    East and west the ships came back
    Happily or unhappily....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
