President Bush?seems to think that the ship [of state] will be saved by imperceptible undercurrents, directed by the invisible hand of some cyclical economic god, that will gradually move the ship so that at the last moment it will miraculously glide past the rocks to safer shores.
Matilda Briggs?was a ship which is associated with the giant ratof Sumatra, a story for whichtheworld isnot yet prepared.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Hiswhole carcassseemedtobemade of iron.There was no give in himno bounce, no softness. He sailed through American history like a steel ship loaded with monoliths made of granite.
Behold, now, another providence of God. A ship comes into the harbor.william bradford
It is time that we steered by the stars, not by the lights of each passing ship.omar bradley
"When the storm came, he stepped up. You’re going to go through storms; you can’t get away from them. It’s how you handle them, and what our team got a chance to see is how our leader handled the storm. He handled it well and steadied the ship."rex grossman
What to do, when a ship carrying a hundred passengers suddenly capsizes and only one lifeboat? When the lifeboat is full, those who hate life will try to load it with more people and sink the lot. Those who love and respect life will take the ship’s axe and sever the extra hands that cling to the sides of the boat.pentti linkola
I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.john masefield
Ride, captain ride, upon your mystery ship, be amazed, at the friends, you have here on your trip. Ride, captain ride, upon your mystery ship, on your way, to a world, that others might have missed.
I do not advocate burning your ship to get rid of the cockroaches.thomas henry huxley
I thought that, given the system of rewards central to our economic system, in which profit maximization is valued above all else and specifically above life, it is probably just as irresistible to the owners of capital (human or otherwise) to exploit workers (and the land): "Nothing personal," they say as they load their property onto the ship bound for the Middle Passage, "but a man's gotta turn a dime."derrick jensen
“We’re in danger of losing the ship generation.” “I’m aware of the problems,” she said. “‘You can’t tell the boys from the girls, they have no respect for their elders, their user interfaces are garish and unwieldy, everybody is writing a book, and their music is just noise.’ Found scratched on a potsherd in Sumer.”ken macleod
Love's ship has foundered on the rocks of life. We're quits: stupid to draw up a list of mutual sorrows, hurts and pains.vladimir mayakovsky
What life means to me is to put the content of Shelley into the form of Zola . The proletarian writer is a writer with a purpose; he thinks no more of "art for art's sake" than a man on a sinking ship thinks of painting a beautiful picture in the cabin; he thinks of getting ashore and then there will be time enough for art.upton sinclair
God himself could not sink this ship .
Sin in the conscience, is like Jonah in a ship, which causeth such a tempest, that the conscience is like a troubled sea, whose waters cannot rest, or it is like a mote in the eye, which causeth a perpetual trouble while it is there.
Hmm, nothing happened. Maybe my calcul-- [ship explodes]
What does the good ship bear so well? The cocoa-nut with its stony shell, And the milky sap of its inner cell.john greenleaf whittier
A ship should not ride on a single anchor, nor life on a single hope.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion , butcher a hog, cone a ship, design a building, write a sonnet , balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
