There seems to be something wrong with our bloody ships today.Beatty, David, 1st Earl Beatty
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

When raging love with extreme pain Most cruelly distrains my heart; When that my tears, as floods of rain, Bear witness of my woful smart; When sighs have wasted so my breath That I lie at the point of death: I call to mind the navy great That the Greeks brought to Troyè town: And how the boisterous winds did beat Their ships, and rent their sails adown; Till Agamemnon 's daughter's blood Appeased the gods that them withstood.howard, henry, earl of surrey

Lo! body and soul! this land! Mighty Manhattan, with spires, and The sparkling and hurrying tides, and the ships; The varied and ample land, the South And the North in the light Ohio's shores, and flashing Missouri, And ever the far-spreading prairies, covered with grass and corn.walt whitman

Hearts of oak are our ships, Hearts of oak are our men.
"I will be forced to sink [the US ships], because even if I have one ship left I will proceed with the bombardment. Spain, the Queen and I prefer honour without ships than ships without honour."
The business of the English Commander-in-Chief being first to bring an Enemy's Fleet to Battle, on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the Enemy, as expeditiously as possible;) and secondly, to continue them there, without separating, until the business is decided.horatio nelson
