William Dampier

English navigator

In the road ships must ride in 30, 40, or 50 fathom water, not above half a mile from the shore at farthest: and if there are many ships they must ride close one by another.More William Dampier quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But beyond the bright searchlights of science,
Out of sight of the windows of sense,
Old riddles still bid us defiance,
Old questions of Why and of Whence.More William Dampier quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
While we were at work there came nine or 10 of the natives to a small hill a little way from us, and stood there menacing and threatening of us, and making a great noise. At last one of them came towards us, and the rest followed at a distance.More William Dampier quotes [09/14/2011 04:09:52]
