A ship in port is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.

Grace Murray Hopper,

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery, novelist

Design has taken the place of what sailing used to be.

But although we have noticed the ark as being the first ship, we cannot with propriety place it in the front of the history of navigation. After the flood the ark seems to have been soon forgotten, or at least imperfectly remembered, and men reverted to their little canoes and clumsy boats, which sufficed for all their limited wants. It was not until about a thousand years later in the world

R. M. [Robert Michael] Ballantyne,

I long for the solitude of a sunset at sea,and the chill of the breezecoming in with the eve.For the motion of my boat,as she swings on her rode,and the beauty of the stars,in the evenings last glow.

R.C. Gibbons,

The sailor is frankness, the landsman is finesse. Life is not a game with the sailor, demanding the long head

Herman Melville, novelist

He is the best sailor who can steer within the fewest points of the wind, and exact a motive power out of the greatest obstacles.

Henry David Thoreau, author

One ship sails east and another sails west With the self-same winds that blow.Tis the set of the sail and not the galeWhich determines the way they go.As the winds of the sea are the ways of fateAs we voyage along through life,Tis the act of the soul that determines the goal,And not the calm or the strife.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox, writer

I have no interest in sailing around the world. Not that there is any lack of requests for me to do so.

Edward Heath, leader

The fleet being thus more inclosed will more readily observe the signals, and with greater facility form itself into the line of battle a circumstance which should be kept in view in every order of sailing.

William Falconer, poet

The effect of sailing is produced by a judicious arrangement of the sails to the direction of the wind.

William Falconer, poet

Water, water, everywhere And all the boards did shrink Water, water everywhere Nor any drop to drink.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, poet

Their elegant shape, showy colours, and slow, sailing mode of flight, make them very attractive objects, and their numbers are so great that they form quite a feature in the physiognomy of the forest, compensating for the scarcity of flowers.

Henry Walter Bates, environmentalist

A sailing ship is no democracy; you don't caucus a crew as to where you'll go anymore than you inquire when they'd like to shorten sail.

Sterling Hayden, actor

They were singing, Gillette, the best a man can get, with a lot of guys hugging their fathers and sailing and riding bikes. I suddenly felt a long way from the best a man could get and I thought it would be nice to get from there to the best.

Craig Ferguson, comedian

There is a rule in sailing where the more maneuverable ship should give way to the less maneuverable craft. I think this is sometimes a good rule to follow in human relationships as well.

Joyce Brothers, psychologist

If you live a life of make-believe, your life isn't worth anything until you do something that does challenge your reality. And to me, sailing the open ocean is a real challenge, because it's life or death.

Morgan Freeman, actor

I love cities that are on the water. I love the water element, specifically the sea. I grew up on the sea and I grew up sailing - I love sailing - and the presence of the sea gives the air and the light a very special quality that I absolutely adore.
