Famous quotes containing the words victory, ship, built and/or california:

    It is not the cause for which men took up arms that makes a victory more just or less, it is the order that is established when arms have been laid down.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    You live on hopes, I guess. You always dream that someday you might have a lot of money, your ship might come in. But if the ship doesn’t come in, I’m going to work as long as I can.
    Marion Gray (b. c. 1914)

    They built by rivers and at night the water
    Running past windows comforted their sorrow;
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    The California fever is not likely to take us off.... There is neither romance nor glory in digging for gold after the manner of the pictures in the geography of diamond washing in Brazil.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
