There be triple ways to take, of the eagle or the snake,
Or the way of a man with a maid;
But the fairest way to me is a ship's upon the sea
In the heel of the North-East Trade.
Time that is moved by little fidget wheels Is not myTime, the flood that does not flow. Between the double and the single bell Of a ship's hour, between a round of bells From the dark warship riding there below, I have lived many lives, and this one life Of Joe, long dead, who lives between five bells.Adam Skirving
On the fifth day following the murder of the ship's officers, land was sighted by the lookout.

Any government has as much of a duty to avoid war as a ship's captain has to avoid a shipwreck.Guy de Maupassant
Grab a weapon and explosives, quick! The ship's boilers line these passageways; place your charges as we go. This place will be crawling with Krauts.
