"Men of sense often learn from their enemies. It is from their foes, not their friends, that cities learn the lesson of building high walls and ships of war."


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off your bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.”

Mark Twain



Naval Tidbits

Sundowner - A harsh disciplinarian.  Some early captains were so strict that they ordered their crews to return to their ships by sunset if they were sailing in the morning.

Dead Marine - Any empty wine, beer, or liquor bottle left on the table during a party or celebration.  Said to be first used by King William IV while he was still the Duke of Clarence.  While at dinner on board one of his ships, he ordered the steward to remove the 'dead marines'. When a marine officer present objected to the term, he explained that the bottles, like the marines, they had done their duty nobly, and would soon be ready to do so again (once they were refilled).  The army has an exact equivalent: 'Dead Soldier'.
