We clear the harbor and the wind catches her sails and my beautiful ship leans over ever so gracefully, and her elegant bow cuts cleanly into the increasing chop of the waves. I take a deep breath and my chest expands and my heart starts thumping so strongly I fear the others might see it beat through the cloth of my jacket. I face the wind and my lips peel back from my teeth in a grin of pure joy.L.A. Meyer Ships Sailing Sayings By L.A. Meyer: We clear the harbor and the wind catches her sails and my beautiful ship leans

Even those novelists most commonly deemed "philosophical" have sometimes answered with an emphatic no. Iris Murdoch, the longtime Oxford philosopher and author of some two dozen novels treating highbrow themes like consciousness and morality, argued that philosophy and literature were contrary pursuits. Philosophy calls on the analytical mind to solve conceptual problems in an "austere, unselfish, candid" prose, she said in a BBC interview broadcast in 1978, while literature looks to the imagination to show us something "mysterious, ambiguous, particular" about the world. Any appearance of philosophical ideas in her own novels was an inconsequential reflection of what she happened to know. "If I knew about sailing ships I would put in sailing ships," she said. "And in a way, as a novelist, I would rather know about sailing ships than about philosophy.Iris Murdoch Ships Sailing Sayings By Iris Murdoch: Even those novelists most commonly deemed "philosophical" have sometimes answered with an emphatic no. Iris

And Francie whispered yeah in agreement. She was proud of that smell. It let her know that nearby was a waterway, which, dirty though it was, joined a river that flowed out to the sea. To her, the stupendous stench suggested far-sailing ships and adventure and she was pleased with the smell.Betty Smith Ships Sailing Sayings By Betty Smith: And Francie whispered yeah in agreement. She was proud of that smell. It let her
It is well known that we fight in God's cause ... but unless God helps us by a miracle the English, who have faster and handier ships than ours, and many more long-range guns, and who know their advantage just as well as we do, will never close with us at all, but stand aloof and knock us to pieces with their culverins, without our being able to do them any serious hurt. So we are sailing against England in the confident hope of a miracle.Nicholas Rodger Ships Sailing Sayings By Nicholas Rodger: It is well known that we fight in God's cause ... but unless God helps
It's out there at sea that you are really yourself.Vito Dumas Ships Sailing Sayings By Vito Dumas: It's out there at sea that you are really yourself.
O skies, be calm! O winds, blow free - Blow all my ships safe home to me! But if thou sendest some a-wrack, To never more come sailing back, Send any - all that skim the sea, But bring my love-ship home to me.Ella Wheeler Wilcox Ships Sailing Sayings By Ella Wheeler Wilcox: O skies, be calm! O winds, blow free - Blow all my ships safe home
When the full moon was out the other night, it created one of the most spectacular scenes that I have seen in the Alps. The high glaciers of the Mont Blanc range were glowing an eerie bright blue-white, and they looked like huge ghost ships in the dark ocean of sky, sailing amongst black mountain valleys.

There were no clouds, and the moon was a huge and perfect disc tracking across the sky, shining on different parts of the glaciers through the night.

Looking up, I saw the black silhouette of the mid-altitude mountains below the ethereal shining high-mountain terrain, which created a weird vision: the ghostly glaciers floating, and appearing separate, contrasting sharply with the dark valleys beneath.

The Aiguille Verte especially, being so steep and isolated, seemed almost like a holographic mast with sails, plowing into the rolling waves, chasing after the Mont Blanc summit with its billowing spinnaker...
Steve Baldwin Ships Sailing Sayings By Steve Baldwin: When the full moon was out the other night, it created one of the most

The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.Roald Dahl Ships Sailing Sayings By Roald Dahl: The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived
Nine times out of ten, failure is resorting to Plan B when Plan A gets too risky, too costly, or too difficult. That's why most people are living their Plan B. They didn't burn the ships. Plan A people don't have a Plan B...

There are moments in life when we need to burn the ships to our past. We do so by making a defining decision that will eliminate the possibility of sailing back to the old world we left behind. You burn the ships named Past Failure and Past Success. You burn the ship named Bad Habit. You burn the ship named Regret. You burn the ship named Guilt. You burn the ship named My Old Way of Life.
Mark Batterson Ships Sailing Sayings By Mark Batterson: Nine times out of ten, failure is resorting to Plan B when Plan A gets
Every American autobiography, someone once said, is about one thing - escape. Look into the frightened heart of an American life, and you'll find a compulsion to flee - a seed planted in the national character at the start by those ships sailing out of Europe and landing on our shores.
- Teller: A Novel
Frederick Weisel Ships Sailing Sayings By Frederick Weisel: Every American autobiography, someone once said, is about one thing - escape. Look into the

Cry no tears for us, my friend." I pry at her fingers, panicking to be released in fear that she may drag me into death with her. She croaks again, "Lend no aches to the dreams of yesterday."
From the corpse of Warren, his greyish gums smack from whatever goo has settled in his mouth, "Allow the tide sweep free the bay."
Then together they sing in zombie choir, "And home the ships sailing send.
Nathan Reese Maher Ships Sailing Sayings By Nathan Reese Maher: Cry no tears for us, my friend." I pry at her fingers, panicking to be
All these thoughts of love and strife
Glimmered through his lurid life,
As the stars' intenser light
Through the red flames o'er him trailing,
As his ships went sailing, sailing,
Northward in the summer night.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Ships Sailing Sayings By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: All these thoughts of love and strifeGlimmered through his lurid life,As the stars' intenser lightThrough
Most sailing ships take what they call trainees, who pay to be part of the crew. The Picton Castle takes people who are absolutely raw recruits. But you can't just ride along. You're learning to steer the ship, navigation; you're pulling lines, keeping a lookout; in the galley you're cooking.Billy Campbell Ships Sailing Sayings By Billy Campbell: Most sailing ships take what they call trainees, who pay to be part of the
The first glance at the pillow showed me a repulsive sentinel perched upon each end of it
cockroaches as large as peach leaves
fellows with long, quivering antennae and fiery, malignant eyes. They were grating their teeth like tobacco worms, and appeared to be dissatisfied about something. I had often heard that these reptiles were in the habit of eating off sleeping sailors' toe nails down to the quick, and I would not get in the bunk any more. I lay down on the floor. But a rat came and bothered me, and shortly afterward a procession of cockroaches arrived and camped in my hair. In a few moments the rooster was crowing with uncommon spirit and a party of fleas were throwing double somersaults about my person in the wildest disorder, and taking a bite every time they stuck. I was beginning to feel really annoyed. I got up and put my clothes on and went on deck.
The above is not overdrawn; it is a truthful sketch of inter-island schooner life.
Mark Twain Ships Sailing Sayings By Mark Twain: The first glance at the pillow showed me a repulsive sentinel perched upon each end
I could feel her behind me. I knew she was there, but I didn't dare turn around. A book I read about sailing ships said that the lookout man sometimes couldn't see through the fog, but he could tell they were getting close to an iceberg when the air would turn cold. The air turned cold when Miz Ort came near, too.Floyd Wesley Brosman Ships Sailing Sayings By Floyd Wesley Brosman: I could feel her behind me. I knew she was there, but I didn't dare
There will be two ships sailing, but you'll be on the Resolution, with Cook himself. Never put yourself in his way. Never speak to him. And if you do speak to him, which you must never do, certainly do to speak to him in the manner in which you have sometimes spoken to me. He will not find it as diverting as I do.Elizabeth Gilbert Ships Sailing Sayings By Elizabeth Gilbert: There will be two ships sailing, but you'll be on the Resolution, with Cook himself.
They were all growing so fast. In just a few short years they would be all young men and women ... youth tiptoe ... expectant ... a-star with its sweet wild dreams ... little ships sailing out of safe harbor to unknown ports. The boys would go away to their life work and the girls ... ah, the mist-veiled forms of beautiful brides might be seen coming down the old stairs at Ingleside. But they would still be hers for a few years yet ... hers to love and guide ... to sing the songs that so many mothers had sung ... Hers ... and Gilbert's.L.M. Montgomery Ships Sailing Sayings By L.M. Montgomery: They were all growing so fast. In just a few short years they would be
We were all of us like the proverbial ships that pass in the night, signaling only briefly to one another before sailing off over the horizon into our own patch of darkness.Alan Bradley Ships Sailing Sayings By Alan Bradley: We were all of us like the proverbial ships that pass in the night, signaling
Wealth from trade was the mainspring of Western material advance; the visible agents of change were great guns. These came of age in Europe in the 15th century. On land their potency in reducing castle walls favoured central over local power, since in general only monarchs could afford siege-trains; so nation-states were consolidated and extended into great territorial empires. At sea, guns transformed sailing ships into mobile castles virtually impregnable to opponents who lacked equally powerful ordnance. With the ocean-going gunned warship, western Europe began to extend around the globe.Peter Padfield Ships Sailing Sayings By Peter Padfield: Wealth from trade was the mainspring of Western material advance; the visible agents of change
I love sailing but hate cruise ships.Garrett Neff Ships Sailing Sayings By Garrett Neff: I love sailing but hate cruise ships.
A war of ideas can no more be won without books than a naval war can be won without ships. Books, like ships, have the toughest armor, the longest cruising range, and mount the most powerful guns.Franklin D. Roosevelt Ships Sailing Sayings By Franklin D. Roosevelt: A war of ideas can no more be won without books than a naval war
The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall; nations perish; civilizations grow old and die out; and, after an era of darkness, new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again, and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men's hearts of the hearts of men centuries dead.
And even the books that do not last long, penetrate their own times at least, sailing farther than Ulysses even dreamed of, like ships on the seas. It is the author's part to call into being their cargoes and passengers,
living thoughts and rich bales of study and jeweled ideas. As for the publishers, it is they who build the fleet, plan the voyage, and sail on, facing wreck, till they find every possible harbor that will value their burden.
Clarence C. Day Ships Sailing Sayings By Clarence C. Day: The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he
The roaches were in high spirits. There were half a dozen of them, caught in the teeth of love. They capered across the liquor bottles, perched atop pour spouts like wooden ladies on the prows of sailing ships. They lifted their wings and delicately fluttered. They swung their antennae with a ripe sexual urgency, tracing love sonnets in the air.Nathan Ballingrud Ships Sailing Sayings By Nathan Ballingrud: The roaches were in high spirits. There were half a dozen of them, caught in
I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it's because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it's because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came.
[Remarks at the Dinner for the America's Cup Crews, September 14 1962]
John F. Kennedy Ships Sailing Sayings By John F. Kennedy: I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to
That new technologies and techniques would be forthcoming was a fundamental article of Christian faith. Hence, no bishops or theologians denounced clocks or sailing ships
although both were condemned on religious grounds in various non-Western societies.
Rodney Stark Ships Sailing Sayings By Rodney Stark: That new technologies and techniques would be forthcoming was a fundamental article of Christian faith.
Orcs, and talking trees, and leagues of grass, and galloping riders, and glittering caves, and white towers and golden halls, and battles, and tall ships sailing, all these passed before Sam's mind.J.R.R. Tolkien Ships Sailing Sayings By J.R.R. Tolkien: Orcs, and talking trees, and leagues of grass, and galloping riders, and glittering caves, and
The major advances in speed of communication and ability to interact took place more than a century ago. The shift from sailing ships to telegraph was far more radical than that from telephone to email!Noam Chomsky Ships Sailing Sayings By Noam Chomsky: The major advances in speed of communication and ability to interact took place more than
From the plough to paper, from the wheel to house, from tool handles to sailing ships. Man would have been nothing without trees.Chris Priestley Ships Sailing Sayings By Chris Priestley: From the plough to paper, from the wheel to house, from tool handles to sailing
The author gives an interesting naval etymology of the word "opportunity". It referred to days in which sailing ships had to wait outside a port for the appropriate tide, which then was their chance until the next tide.Mark Batterson Ships Sailing Sayings By Mark Batterson: The author gives an interesting naval etymology of the word "opportunity". It referred to days
Not so much two ships passing in the night as two ships sailing together for a time but always bound for different ports.P.D. James Ships Sailing Sayings By P.D. James: Not so much two ships passing in the night as two ships sailing together for
There are ships sailing to many ports, but not a single one goes where life is not painful.Fernando Pessoa Ships Sailing Sayings By Fernando Pessoa: There are ships sailing to many ports, but not a single one goes where life
Men go back to the mountains, as they go back to sailing ships at sea, because in the mountains and on the sea they must face up.Henry David Thoreau Ships Sailing Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: Men go back to the mountains, as they go back to sailing ships at sea,
Read on and I will tell you what to do in the future to avoid getting smashed and find yourself with nothing but little pieces of drift floating around in the ship's wake.John W. Trimmer Ships Sailing Sayings By John W. Trimmer: Read on and I will tell you what to do in the future to avoid
Sailing has given me some of the most pleasant and exciting moments of my life. It also has taught me something of the courage, resourcefulness, and strength of men who sail the seas in ships.John F. Kennedy Ships Sailing Sayings By John F. Kennedy: Sailing has given me some of the most pleasant and exciting moments of my life.
Here, I could see, was choice matter on which the expert and art critic could exercise their knowledge and judgment. As I had neither, I made an experiment or two, and was able to inform the readers of the paper that if you walked briskly past the picture, winking both eyes as fast as possible, you really got a sort of impression of movement and activity, of ships and boats coming into the harbour and sailing out of it, of sails lowered and hoisted, of an uncertain background, now obscured, now left visible as a ship in full sail passed before it. It struck me that, in my hands, art criticism was in a fair way to become a popular sport.Arthur Machen Ships Sailing Sayings By Arthur Machen: Here, I could see, was choice matter on which the expert and art critic could
Let the business of the world take care of itself ... My business is to get the world saved; if this involves the standing still of the looms and the shutting up of the factories, and the staying of the sailing of the ships, let them all stand still. When we have got everybody converted they can go on again, and we shall be able to keep things going then by working half time and have the rest to spend in loving one another and worshipping God.William Booth Ships Sailing Sayings By William Booth: Let the business of the world take care of itself ... My business is to
Yes," he said. "But what is the character of the regime? And what are the mistakes which we were saying it contains?" "First," I said, "the very thing that defines the regime is one. Reflect: if a man were to choose pilots of ships in that way - on the basis of property assessments - and wouldn't entrust one to a poor man, even if he were a more skilled pilot - " "They would make a poor sailing," he said.Plato Ships Sailing Sayings By Plato: Yes," he said. "But what is the character of the regime? And what are the
Beyond The Sea"

Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailing

Somewhere beyond the sea
She's there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to her arms
I'd go sailing

It's far beyond the stars
It's near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon

We'll meet beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
And never again I'll go sailing

I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon
We'll meet (I know we'll meet) beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
And never again I'll go sailing

No more sailing
So long sailing
Bye, bye sailing...
