Nautical Quotes

As a sister thread to Nautical Trivia. I propose the same format for nautical quotes. Ground rules, no google in first 2 hours. Correct answer posts next quote.
Who said this?

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

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Don't know it but I like it. Sounds like a Joshua Slocum philosophy even if not a direct quote of his.

Rodney Dangerfield - Caddyshack.

But we still don't have the "not think too deeply" answer and you're supposed to solve that one first. ;-) Gotta be turn-of-the-last-centuryish +/- 50 years. Hmmm. John MacGregor (the guy that sailed the little canoe-yawls jost post Civil War era and started the pleasure boating trend)?
