Favorite Captain Vere Quotes

1. "Huzzah! Free Trade and Sailors' Rights! But instead American ships are captured and sailors impressed by the thousands into the British Navy, becoming slaves to the lash, while the United States has virtually no navy to back them up. Baltimore native, Nathan Jeffries, son of an American hero, Captain William Jeffries, and his Quaker wife, Amy, is haunted by the memories of his fiancee, his best friend, his enemy's woman and his betrayal. Chesapeake Bay is no refuge aboard his father's brig Bucephalus;facing his worst fears, he is chased and captured by armed privateer schooner Scourge. In a violent world at war, Nathan must break his most solemn promise to his mother. For Nathan and the young United States, 1812 would severely challenge rights of passage."
Author: Bert J. Hubinger
2. "...innocence is not safe in a civilization like ours, where a man must practice a 'ruled undemonstrative distrustfulness' in order to defend himself against traps. This 'ruled undemonstrative distrustfulness' is not confined to business men, but exists everywhere. We all exercise it. I know I do, and I should be surprised if you, who are listening to me, didn't. All we can do (and Melville gives us this hint) is to exercise it consciously, as Captain Vere did. It is unconscious distrustfulness that corrodes the heart and destroys the heart's insight, and prevents it from saluting goodness."
Author: E.M. Forster
3. "But Captain Vere was now again motionless, standing absorbed in thought. Again starting, he vehemently exclaimed, "Struck dead by an angel of God! Yet that angel must hang!"
Author: Herman Melville
4. "The captain of this sailing vessel has requested a private audience with you in his quarters. It seems you've a treasure map hidden on your person, and I mean to explore every inch of you until it is discovered."
Author: Olivia Parker
5. "The captain scowled at her. Then he threw Petey to the floor with a coarse oath, knocking the scrimshaw and the carving knife from Petey's hands. Petey gasped for breath as Captain Horn hovered over him, wearing the look of a man who'd just been struck in the noggin by a yardarm and was itching to tear apart the one who'd done it."
Author: Sabrina Jeffries
6. "Wartet!", rief Elizabeth und lief dem Captain nach. "Und wer bringt mich an Land? Der Kodex der Bruderschaft besagt ..." Captain Barbossa fuhr herum und spie ihr die Worte förmlich ins Gesicht: "Erstens: Eure Rückkehr an Land war weder Teil unserer Verhandlung noch unserer Vereinbarung. Also muss ich gar nichts. Zweitens: Ihr müsst Pirat sein, um euch auf den Piratenkodex berufen zu können, und das seid Ihr nicht. Und drittens handelt es sich bei dem Kodex eher um so genannte Richtlinien als um Regeln. Willkommen an Bord der Black Pearl, Miss Turner!"
Author: Ted Elliott

A blown kiss is not a proper kiss. Hugs and kisses should be hugs and kisses, not breaths of air. I am tired of breaths of air and not enough hugs and kisses."
