Still bent to make some port he knows not where, Still standing for some false impossible shore.Matthew Arnold
And when they buried him the little port Had seldom seen a costlier funeral.Tennyson
O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done, The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won, The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting.walt whitman
So what does it matter where it was when it was hit? We could have sunk it if it'd been tied up on the quayside in a neutral port and everyone would still have been delighted.alan clark
Bonaparte has often made his boast, that our fleet would be worn out by keeping the sea, that his was kept in order, and increasing, by staying in port; but he now finds, I fancy, if emperors hear truth, that his fleet suffers more in a night, than ours in one year; however, thank God, the Toulon fleet is got in order again, and I hear the troops embarked, and I hope they will come out to sea in fine weather.horatio nelson
Talk of the "imperial decay" of your invalid port. "Its gracious withdrawal from perfection, keeping a hint of former majesty withal, as it hovers between oblivion and the divine Untergang of infinite recession."Stephen Potter
The vessel of Revolution can arrive at port only on a sea reddened by torrents of blood.louis antoine de saint-just
White sail upon the ocean verge,Just crimsoned by the setting sun,Thou hast thy port beyond the surge,Thy happy homeward course to runAnd winged hope, with heart of fire,To gain the bliss of thy desire.william winter
The fact that previous generations have handed down to us a substantial public heritage by way of roads, port, etc. almost completely free of debt, seems to me to impose some limitation on the validity of the theory that by borrowing we should, or could, pass on the burden of development to the next generation.john james cowperthwaite
I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
[ Serialism ] is like a sailless ship, driven out to sea by its captain, who has grown tired of its being used only as a pontoon, and who is privately convinced that by subjecting life aboard to the rules of an elaborate protocol, he will prevent the crew from thinking nostalgically either of their home port or of their ultimate destination.…claude lévi-strauss
On the third day the sky seemed to us somewhat clearer, and we happily arrived at the port of Mateotechny, not far distant from Queen Whims, alias the Quintessence . We met full butt on the quay a great number of guards and other military men that garrisoned the arsenal, and we were somewhat frighted at first because they made us all lay down our arms, and in a haughty manner asked us whence we came.françois rabelais
O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done! The ship has weathered every wrack, the prize we sought is won, The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting.walt whitman
He has had a smack of every sort of wine, from humble port to Imperial Tokay.james townley
Industry-friendly government policies, proximity to the port , a traditional engineering base are factors that have made the City the ‘Auto Hub’ of India .
It (Chennai-Sriperumbudur-Oragadam) is already an automobile hub with so many companies. Its location and access to a sea port is a big plus.
Daman or Damao is a quaint little port on the West Coast of India. It has been the coveted prize for which princes and potentates, local satraps and alien powers waged wars.
They'll tell thee, sailors, when away, In every port a mistress find.john gay
I can find lots of examples where a game won't make you rich, but I can't find a reasonable case where a Linux port doesn't have at least a small, positive return on investment.
If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Hard to port!
I find that the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
Come fill up my cup, come fill up my can, Come saddle your horses, and call up your men; Come open the West port, and let me gang free, And it's room for the bonnets of Bonny Dundee!walter scott
Like environmentalists, politicians generally privilege flora and fauna over folks. (NIMBYs excepted. Senator Edward Kennedy is a not-in-my-backyard environmentalist: he opposes wind farms in Nantucket Sound, offshore from his Hyannis port compound.)
