Today’s Quote: Ralph W. Sockman

“There are parts of a ship which taken by themselves would sink. The engine would sink. The propeller would sink. But when the parts of a ship are built together, they float. So with the events of my life. Some have been tragic. Some have been happy. But when they are built together, they form a craft that floats and is going someplace. And I am comforted.”

  2. I am a relatively unknown writer who is (also) one of those underage veterans (from WW 2). I would like to ask permission to use your “quotation” , There are parts of a ship…..
    You can type my name online and get some idea of the sort of articles I write.
