I started to work on this book in 1954, when, having been called to active duty in the Navy, I was relieved of the burdens of a full-time psychoanalytic practice... Within a year of its publication, the Commissioner of the New York State Department of Mental Hygiene demanded, in a letter citing specifically 'The Myth Of Mental Illness', that I be dismissed from my university position because I did not "believe" in mental illness.
I've received many honors and I'm grateful for them; but I've already received the highest award I'll ever receive, and that has been the privilege and honor of serving very proudly in the United States Navy.grace hopper
It may not be fit, in point of discipline, that a subordinate officer should dispute the commands of his superior, if he were ordered to go to the mast head: but if the superior were to order him thither, knowing that, for some bodily infirmity, it was impossible he should execute the order, and that he must infallibly break his neck in the attempt, and it were so to happen, the discipline of the Navy would not protect that superior from being guilty of the crime of murder.
Neither the Army nor the Navy is of any protection, or very little protection, against aerial raids.alexander graham bell
There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.
With Leighton Smith in charge, we've got a Navy admiral running a predominantly land campaign — the first ever in NATO's 47-year history. ... As the U.S. continues to withdraw from overseas bases, Naval Forces will become even more relevant in meeting American forward presence requirements.smith, leighton w., jr.
It is not possible to foretell the reaction of certain elements in the Army and Navy.yoshijirō umezu
And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worth while, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: "I served in the United States Navy."john f. kennedy
The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist. McDonald's cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the designer of the F-15. And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley's technologies to flourish is called the US Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.
The condition of the British Navy is, no doubt, a matter of national importance and public interest.
"In the Navy we're concerned about health and about preserving health care because we don't get paid by the procedure. We get paid to have Marines and sailors healthy, and that's the same mission as the chiropractic profession..."
I promise this, that if I am supported by our most invincible sovereigns with a little of their help, as much gold can be supplied as they will need, indeed as much of spices, of cotton, of mastic gum (which is only found in Chios), also as much of aloes wood, and as many slaves for the Navy, as their Majesties will wish to demand.christopher columbus
I have always believed that successes would be the inevitable result if the two services, the army and the Navy, had fair play, and if we sent the right man to fill the right place.
What can I say? If I knew in 1934 what I know now, I would have remained in the Navy. I didn't know that this was going to happen and I didn't know that Germany was going to lose the war and be in ruins.oswald pohl
They have discovered that the length of time we have now been in commission has rotted our ships and wasted our crews, and that with the completeness of our crews and the soundness of the pristine efficiency of our Navy has departed. For it is impossible for us to haul our ships ashore and dry them out because the enemy's vessels being as many or more than our own, we are constantly anticipating an attack.Thucydides

There is a homely old adage which runs: "Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far." If the American Nation will speak softly, and yet build, and keep at a pitch of the highest training, a thoroughly efficient Navy, the Monroe Doctrine will go far.
The appropriation of public money always is perfectly lovely until some one is asked to pay the bill. If we are to have a billion dollars of Navy, half a billion of farm relief, [etc.] … the people will have to furnish more revenue by paying more taxes. It is for them, through their Congress, to decide how far they wish to go.
The royal Navy of England has ever been its greatest defence and ornament; it is its ancient and natural strength; the floating bulwark of the island.
There were gentlemen and there were seamen in the Navy of Charles the Second. But the seamen were not gentlemen; and the gentlemen were not seamen.
The Navy is the most important defence of the country, in which every subject of the Queen has an interest of the deepest character.
