Old Sailor Proverbs 

provided by Katie Kramer


Big ships often sail on big debts.


Don't build a new ship out of old wood.


There are people that fish and those who just disturb the water.

 

Don't sail out farther than you can row back.

 

Make not your sail too big for your ballast.

 

Don't bargain for fish which are still in the water.

 

After the ship has sunk, everyone knows how she might have been saved.

 

If you want to sail to a new land, you need to cast off your lines from the old port.

 

Our passions are the winds that propel our vessel. Our reason is the pilot that steers her. Without winds the vessel would not move and without a pilot she would be lost.

 

Raise your sail one foot and you get ten feet of wind.
