He was known for saying, "By prevailing over all obstacles and distractions, one may unfailingly arrive at his chosen destination."

These are his not-so-famous quotes:

2) "If one more sailor sings, 'we three ships,' I'm pushing you overboard."

3) "Land....eventually......ho"

4) "What do you mean, 'we should have gone right', back there?!"

5) "No, today is not a holiday, get back to work."
