Thou, too, Sail on,O Ship of State! Sail on,O UNION, strong and great! Humanity with all its fears, With all the hopes of future years, Is hanging breathless on thy fate!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

In the nineteenth century some parts of the world were unexplored, but there was almost no restriction on travel.:; Up to 1914 you did not need a passport for any country except Russia.:; The European emigrant, if he could scrape together a few pounds for the passage, simply set Sail for America or Australia, and when he got there no questions were asked.:; In the eighteenth century it had been quite normal and safe to travel in a country with which your own country was at war.george orwell
Give a man a horse he can ride, Give a man a boat he can Sail; And his rank and wealth, his strength and health, On sea nor shore shall fail.james thomson
Nail to the mast her holy flag, Set every threadbare Sail, And give her to the God of storms, The lightning and the gale.
And over the pond are sailing Two swans all white as snow; Sweet voices mysteriously wailing Pierce through me as onward they go. They Sail along, and a ringing Sweet melody rises on high; And when the swans begin singing, They presently must die.Heinrich Heine
How we behave toward cats here below determines our status in heaven.robert a. heinlein
Sail forth into the sea of life, O gentle, loving, trusting wife, And safe from all adversity Upon the bosom of that sea Thy comings and thy goings be! For gentleness and love and trust Prevail o'er angry wave and gust; And in the wreck of noble lives Something immortal still survives.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Stately as a galleon, I Sail across the floor, Doing the MilitaryTwo-step, as in the days of yore.
It was inevitable theTitanic was going to set Sail, but that doesn't mean it was a good idea to be on it.william hague
I trust my readers will join me in grandly ignoring the complaints of sour-faced and grumpish scholars that "no such person" ever existed and that his Boke of Voiages and Travailes is a hoax and a forgery. What do they know, the old frumps, who have never dared emerge from their dusty libraries to tread the heaving quarterdeck and raise Sail for Golden Ind, and Far Cathay, and the Islands of Prester John?john mandeville
I, serial number 30743, Lieutenant General in reserves Yitzhak Rabin, a soldier in the Israeli Defense Forces and in the army of peace, I, who have sent armies into fire and soldiers to their death, say today: We Sail onto a war which has no casualties, no wounded, no blood nor suffering. It is the only war which is a pleasure to participate in — the war for peace.yitzhak rabin
To study the phenomenon of disease without books is to Sail an uncharted sea, while to study books without patients is not to go to sea at all.william osler
Build me a tomb for when I die, build it 50,000 feet into the sky... Build me a boat I want to discover America , build me a boat to take me to the edge of the seven seas, build me a boat and you can Sail along with me, we’ll spread our money, power, religion and disease. ...Who are they to say that we own nothing and our lives have gone astray?dawud wharnsby
For I am a weed, Flung from the rock, on Ocean's foam, to Sail, Where'er the surge may sweep, the tempest's breath prevail.lord byron
Still must I on, for I am as a weed, Flung from the rock, on Ocean's foam, to Sail Where'er the surge may sweep.lord byron
Far out at sea, the sun was high, While veer'd the wind and flapped the Sail, We saw a snow-white butterfly Dancing before the fitful gale, Far out at sea.richard henry horne
And ye Sail walk in silk attire, And siller hae to spare, Gin ye'll consent to be his bride, Nor think o' Donald mair.

The Germans themselves I should regard as aboriginal, and not mixed at all with other races through immigration or intercourse. For in former times, it was not by land but on shipboard that those who sought to emigrate would arrive; and the boundless and, so to speak, hostile ocean beyond us,is seldom entered by a Sail from our world.
