Here are a couple of my favorites:
"We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
"I find Hornblower admirable."
Winston S. Churchill
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. *
I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide *********
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied; *
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying, *
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying. *
I must down to the seas again to the vagrant gypsy
To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife; **
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover, *
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.
Here's one for the charter
"Before the boat docked, however, he confessed because he was contemplating running for president, he couldn't separate from his wife. I believed him when he told me he faced a difficult choice between pursuing personal happiness and his political destiny."
