Re: What is Your Favorite Quote?

Not sailing related but I've liked this quote for a very long time.

"But tie yourself up with a woman and, like a chained convict, you lose all freedom! And all you have of hope and strength merely weighs you down and torments you with regret."

-Leo Tolstoy ~War and Peace

If I drank I would choose one of these as a sig line. Might do it anyway.

"Any damn fool can navigate the world sober. It takes a really good sailor to do it drunk." - Sir Francis Chichester





To the question, "When were your spirits at the lowest
ebb?" the obvious answer seemed to be, "When the gin
gave out." - Sir Francis Chichester

Re: What is Your Favorite Quote?

A few of my old favourites.....

"The man who would be fully employed should procure a
ship or a woman, for no two things produce more trouble"
- Plautus 254-184 B.C

Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and
were good,
God would permit us to be pirates.
- Mark Twain – Life on the Mississippi

"It isn't that life ashore is distasteful to me. But life at sea is better."
-Sir Francis Drake

Jack Sparrow: "Wherever we want to go, we go. That's what a ship is, you know. It's not just a keel and a hull and sails;
that's what a ship needs. Not what a ship is. What the Black Pearl really is, is freedom."

"There is nothing like lying flat on your back on the deck, alone except for the helmsman aft at the wheel, silence except for the lapping of the sea against the side of the ship. At that time you can be equal to Ulysses and brother to him." ~~Errol Flynn
