"One hand for the ship, one hand for yourself" hang on!
"Grumble you may, but go you must" no-one else will do it for you!
"wind before rain, you'll soon set sail again" works every time with a squall

Them's that died was the lucky ones.

Said to me by a friend, with a Cockney accent, who was a merchant marine in answer to how his last trip was.

From Mark Twain,

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

"When your dumb......you gotta' be tough"....

This was quote from my dad when I was a teen and got in some minor trouble (consuming beer at the RR tracks)and called him from the local police precinct....
