„And pray, what in sea language is meant by a ship?“

—  Patrick O'Brian, Master and Commander, "She must have three square-rigged masts, sir," they told him kindly, "and a bowsprit; and the masts must be in three - lower, top and topgallant - for we never call a polacre a ship." Master and Commander (1970)

„A ship in port is safe; but that is not what ships are built for. Sail out to sea and do new things.“

—  Grace Hopper American computer scientist and United States Navy officer 1906 - 1992
Misattributed, This saying appears to be due to John Augustus Shedd; it was quoted in "Grace Hopper : The Youthful Teacher of Us All" by Henry S. Tropp in Abacus Vol. 2, Issue 1 (Fall 1984) ISSN 0724-6722 . She did repeat this saying on multiple occasions, but she called it "a motto that has stuck with me" and did not claim coinage.
