I'm in the Dance Band on the Titanic Singing "Nearer my God to thee" and the icebergs on the starboard bow Won't you dance with me?
It seemed that out of battle I escaped Down some profound dull tunnel, long since scooped Through granites which titanic wars had groined.wilfred owen
Honour the brave who sleepWhere the lost “titanic” lies,The men who knew what a man must doWhen he looks Death in the eyes.“Women and children first,”—Ah, strong and tender cry!The sons whom women had borne and nursed,Remembered,—and dared to die.The boats crept off in the dark:The great ship groaned: and then,—O stars of the night, who saw that sight,Bear witness, These were men!henry van dyke
The two-party system has given this country the war of Lyndon Johnson, the Watergate of Nixon, and the incompetence of Carter. Saying we should keep the two-party system simply because it is working is like saying the titanic voyage was a success because a few people survived on life-rafts.Eugene McCarthy
I was born in the year the titanic sank. The titanic went down, and I came up. That tells you a little about the fairness of life.studs terkel
In safety, . . . it was believed, the last word had been uttered in the construction of the ‘titanic.”’
Short of climbing aboard a time capsule and peeling back eight and one-half decades, James Cameron's magnificent titanic is the closest any of us will get to walking the decks of the doomed ocean liner. Meticulous in detail, yet vast in scope and intent, titanic is the kind of epic motion picture event that has become a rarity. You don't just watch titanic , you experience it from the launch to the sinking, then on a journey two and one-half miles below the surface, into the cold, watery grave where Cameron has shot never-before seen documentary footage specifically for this movie.james berardinelli
Get the titanic sailing correctly before you worry about the deck chairs.Peter Greenaway
It's so miserable and so easy to keep slamming titanic -- I'll shut up.Peter Greenaway
Like every other 13-year-old in America, she's in love with Leonardo DiCaprio, who I think is an androgynous wimp. You know what he does throughout the whole movie titanic? He smokes.john mccain
The arrival of Wallace Hartley’s body became a focal point of national grief. This young man not only represented all who had died on the titanic, but also the values that the British feared were in decline.steve turner

"6. You realize that if 10 million people saw the movie once, each wasting 3 hours of their lives, that 30 million hours have been wasted, and that if each person lived an average of 70 years, 3,424 years, or 49 lives will have been wasted watching the titanic. James Cameron has effectively murdered 49 people. (Not necessarily a reason to cry, but it is to a sap that saw titanic in the first place)."
"The euro titanic has now hit the iceberg - and there simply aren't enough lifeboats to go round."nigel farage
It was 11:45 at night according to ship’s time when the titanic grazed along the iceberg that would send it to the ocean bed.steve turner
