Simple University

Want to be a well-paid bioethicist, with one, two, or even three university appointments? Just get yourself a two-piece navy polyester suit and follow these three simple rules: (1) Never name names. (2) Screw principles; just follow procedures. (3) Bury the money.

- Alice Dreger

Throw out the rule book. If you like wearing navy and black together, wear it; if you like mixing up gold and silver jewellery, mix it. If you like it, wear it - don't care about what anyone else thinks.

- Amber Le Bon

Commercial Old

My first commercial was an Old Navy commercial where I stood in line in front of a club, and Fran Drescher was in it.

Bag Why

I understand now why Hillary Clinton always wore navy blue pantsuits. Remember, for four years? If you have one or two themes, then you have the same shoes, the same bag. Otherwise, it's a nightmare.

Had None

I have had no concerns in the past and have none moving forward regarding the Navy's ability to effectively address any potential natural or man-made threat to Naval Station Mayport and any military asset located there, including any future nuclear aircraft carrier.

- Ander Crenshaw

Sound Rather

If people weren't watching, I'd be so much more eccentric. I know it makes me sound weak, but rather than make myself happy and wear the silly hat and say, 'Oh, I don't care,' I actually really don't feel like getting made fun of. So I put on something boring and navy and go out and try to disappear.

- Anne Hathaway

Function Fought

Embarrassed Been

I've been writing poems since I was in the Navy - to Rosalynn. I found I could say things in poems that I never could in prose. Deeper, more personal things. I could write a poem about my mother that I could never tell my mother. Or feelings about being on a submarine that I would have been too embarrassed to share with fellow submariners.

- Jimmy Carter

Through Seal

I did 20 years in the Navy. I joined the Navy right out of high school and went through Navy boot camp, went to SEAL training, got done with that, and then showed up at a SEAL team, where I did 20 years. That was pretty much my whole adult life.

- Jocko Willink

Career Had

I never made a career decision based solely on my desire to be an astronaut. I attended the Naval Academy because I wanted to be a Navy pilot. I majored in math because math had always come pretty easily to me and I liked it.

- John L. Phillips

Some Yard

It is too maddening. I've got to fly off, right now, to some devilish navy yard, three hours in a seasick steamer, and after being heartily sick, I'll have to speak three times, and then I'll be sick coming home. Still, who would not be sick for England?

- John Masefield

Big Months

I'm a Navy brat. You find that a lot of stage actors are Army or Navy brats, because they have the ability to make a big impression, make friends, and then leave just a few months later.

- John Michael Higgins

Aim Some

I propose not our enemies as an example for our general imitation, yet, as their navy is the best regulated of any in the world, we must, in some degree, imitate them and aim at such farther improvement as may one day make ours vie with - and exceed - theirs.

- John Paul Jones

Doing Country

You know those Navy SEALs, they weren't Democrats and Republicans. They were just doing what was best for America. Wouldn't that be a great country if all of you Americans were just like that? You followed orders, you marched in step and you followed my agenda.

- Jonah Goldberg

Effects Saw

I was in the Navy and saw, first-hand, the effects of front-line combat.

Practice Been

Leadership is absolutely vital if there are comparable countries which can affect the security of the world you live in. Between Lincoln and Roosevelt's time, America was protected by huge oceans and, in practice, by the British navy. Today, it's different, and the obsession of the Obama administration has been for retrenchment.

- Henry Kissinger

United United States

I needed to join the Navy. If you ask the people in Europe who won World War II, they don't say the Allies, they say the United States won the war and saved the world.

- Bob Feller

Country Committed

The heart and soul of a Navy SEAL is somebody who's committed to their country and committed to their teammates.

Lovely Very

I was a Navy officer writing about Navy problems and I simply stole this lovely Army nurse and popped her into a Navy uniform, where she has done very well for herself.

- James A. Michener

Big Been

The Army was always big on Clausewitz, the Prussian; the Navy on Alfred Thayer Mahan, the American; and the Air Force on Giulio Douhet, the Italian. But the Marine Corps has always been more Eastern-oriented. I am much more comfortable with Sun-tzu and his approach to warfare.

- James Mattis

Career Dad

My dad was a Navy munitions officer, and by the end of his career, he was a specialist in nuclear weapons.

Blue Pink

Pink is the navy blue of India.

- Diana Vreeland

Why Goes

When I lost my rifle, the Army charged me 85 dollars. That is why in the Navy the Captain goes down with the ship.

- Dick Gregory

Studio Making Movies

That's what so great about making movies. It's that you get to do stuff you never would be able to do in real life. You get to go to a recording studio, you get to go to Navy ships and fly all over the world for press. And it's just a great job.

- DJ Qualls

My Life Recently

I'm trying to incorporate colour into my life. Until recently, everything in my closet was black, white, grey, navy or olive.

- Jennifer Morrison

Rebel Everybody

If I'm shopping at the Gap or Old Navy, I'm saying that I'm an ordinary person: I don't want to be seen; I don't want to stand out. That's a statement. If I'm wearing a leather jacket, there's something about me that's kind of a rebel. So everybody says something, whether they want to or not.

- Jidenna

Engagement Several

Al Qaeda attacked the U.S.S. Cole and bombed several U.S. embassies in East Africa in the late 1990s. We knew who did it, but we didn't go after them. Instead, we beefed up security at our embassies and changed the Navy's rules of engagement. It only served to embolden Al Qaeda.

- Kathleen Troia McFarland

Love Wear

I love my bubble skirt. I wear it with a belt and my shirt tucked in. Just like a t-shirt from Nordstrom's or something. And I wear this navy blue blazer with the sleeves crushed up. And I just feel like I'm such a cool girl when I walk out. I feel like, 'Yeah I'm cool, like a model.'

- Keke Palmer

Never Congressman

I never translated from my days in the Navy to being a congressman.

Dave Before

We had not had time to establish ourselves as a double act before Ernie joined the Merchant Navy. I teamed up with the brother of the late Dave Morris.

- Eric Morecambe

Young Been

I've been to a number of places and seen for myself the caliber of people who are in the Navy today - in all the services for that matter. This is an altogether different bunch. These people of today are really bright, young, good people.

- Ernest Borgnine

Wonderful Made

I wouldn't trade those 10 years for anything. The Navy taught me a lot of things. It molded me as a man, and I made a lot of wonderful friends.

- Ernest Borgnine

Happy Through

There was a moment in time where I was really focused on the Navy and I followed through with it - I passed the test. I was happy with myself because I was accomplishing something and I was really working towards a goal. That was the first true thing I invested my energy in.

- Kid Cudi

Easy Your

In the Navy, the path is paved for you. Your job is to be a soldier and fit in. As long as you stick to your place, it's actually really easy.

- Kiesza

Soldiers Actual

I loved the bootcamp and the training. It was the actual Navy and the structure after it that I realized wasn't for me because they're building soldiers. It's a system, and you can't really stick out; you can't be the oddball out in the military.

- Kiesza

Couple Dad

When I was a child, the thing I wanted more than anything was to grow up and live in one house. Since my dad was in the Navy, that wasn't possible. Instead, I lived in a different home every couple of years.

- Kimberly Willis Holt

Caught Going

No matter what happens, the U.S. Navy is not going to be caught napping.

- Frank Knox

Medical Through

The Navy's paid for you to go through school, and then they need doctors to go out and take care of people who are in various different parts of the world. I decided to pay back my time first as an undersea medical officer. I was stationed in Scotland.

- Laurel Clark

Steep Applied

If I were to listen to people all the time when they say, 'Hey, this is a really high challenge, this is a high climb, the bar is pretty steep,' then I wouldn't have gone to the academy. I wouldn't have become an aircraft carrier pilot. I wouldn't have become a Navy SEAL for sure. And I probably wouldn't have applied to Harvard.

- Gabriel E. Gomez

Still Languages

My mother was the only girl in the family. One brother was District Attorney of Odessa or something; another was teaching classical languages; another was a captain of a battleship of the Black Navy; and still another was a chemist and icthyologist.

- George Gamow

Harm Half

To be a Navy SEAL, it's three and a half years training before you're ever put into harm's way the first time.

- Ryan Zinke

Fit Seals

When a recruiter first told me about the Navy SEALs, I knew it was the right fit.

- Ryan Zinke

Fought Seal

I believe in American exceptionalism. As a Navy SEAL, I fought so that I would never have to see my president bow to anyone.

- Ryan Zinke

Like May

I was a mechanic in the Navy. And mechanics in the Navy are like mechanics in airlines. You may have more stripes than I do, but you don't know how to fix the airplane.

- Gordon Bethune

Synergy Habitats

Together we are stronger, our voices louder, and the synergy of our actions more powerful. Together we can prevail on the Navy to put commonsense safeguards in place, like requiring its ships to avoid the most sensitive marine mammal habitats and to stop their training exercises during peak migrations.

- Pierce Brosnan

Cannibalism Amount

There is no cannibalism in the British navy, absolutely none, and when I say none, I mean there is a certain amount.

- Graham Chapman

Always Trend

One trend I always go for is nautical: stripes, navy, rope knot belts, gold buckles.

- Poppy Delevingne

Own Drones

The Air Force has it far worse than the Navy in terms of existential fears, primarily due to the rapid rise and unbelievable dissemination of drones, where seemingly now every military unit has their own miniature air wing of what would have recently passed as toys.

- Thomas P.M. Barnett

Thought Streets

My father took me back home, back to Greenwich Village, and he thought by taking me out of the orphanage he'd be out of the World War too. But no way - they got him anyway. He went in the Navy and then I lived on the streets.

- Gregory Corso

Bride Grandmother

My grandmother is British. She was in the Women's Auxiliary Air Force during World War II. That's where she met my grandfather, who was sailing for the British Royal Navy. She was a war bride.

- Sarah Gadon

Trained Am

Taking command of HMS Portland is definitely the highlight of my 16 years in the Navy. It is a challenge that I am fully trained for and ready to undertake.

- Sarah West

Education About

I wanted to further my education, so I went on to get a Ph.D. in electrical engineering and came back and served about ten years in the Canadian Navy as what we call a combat systems engineer.

- Marc Garneau

Squadron Could

I was with a Navy F-18 squadron, and I know a single squadron could finish off the entire Sudanese air force in a day.

- Tom Catena

Fewer Stood

On 9/11, 2001, the Navy stood at 316 ships. By 2008, after one of the great military buildups in American history, we were at 278 ships and had 49,000 fewer sailors.

- Ray Mabus

Sail Very

There's this misconception that the Navy is this cruise ship, and you get to go out and sail around, and every now and then, you have to swab the deck. But, no, it is a very impressive group of young people that live at sea, in this place that's very uncomfortable. They exude a pride that is well-deserved.

- Tom Hanks

Going Next

When I was 17, I was told I had the choice of enlisting in the Navy or going to jail, so I spent the next three years in the Navy.

- Seymour Cassel

Through Anybody

I missed so many opportunities along the way to do what I wanted to do because I didn't have the confidence to tell myself, much less anybody else, 'Yes, this is the business I wanted to be a part of, and not feeling that I had the talent... and letting it go all the way through Notre Dame and then through two years of Navy service.

- Regis Philbin

Traveling Dollars

I'd put the ninety-nine billion dollars - whatever it is - that's being appropriated for the Air Force and the Navy, and I'd put it into schools. I'd put it into traveling scholarships.

- Nelson Algren

Been Mum

Mum told me stories about her time in the Women's Royal Navy, and about her dad, who had died before I was born - he'd been sent to Australia as a child, then joined the Australian Army in the First World War and fought at Gallipoli.

- Tony Bradman

One Thing Go

I don't go anywhere without clean shoes. That's one thing I've got from the navy.

- Mark Hadlow

New Public Relations

I'm an officer in her Majesty's Royal New Zealand Navy. I'm a public relations officer in the Royal New Zealand Navy. Sounds good, doesn't it?

- Mark Hadlow

Some Applied

Later, after flying in the Navy for four or five years, spending some time on an aircraft carrier, I applied to and was accepted in a program where I went to graduate school first and then to the Naval Test Pilots School.

- Mark Kelly

Still Graham

I'm still a reservist. We have three drilling reservists in the Senate. Senator Graham serves in the Air Force, Senator Brown serves in the Army, and I serve in the Navy.

- Mark Kirk

Pretending Disaster

'McHale's Navy' was a disaster. I'm not pretending it wasn't a disaster.

- Sidney Sheinberg

Nation Potent

American audiences tend to underappreciate the British, but 240 years ago they were us: They were the most powerful nation on Earth. Their mercantile empire spanned the planet. They had the most potent and experienced army and navy the world had ever seen.

- Rick Atkinson

Always Like

I always wanted to go into the military or something like that - my whole family, all my friends are either Air Force, Navy, or Marines.

- RJ Mitte

Like Preppy

I'm sort of East Coast, so I like the off-white and the navy blues and the low-key preppy kind of thing.

- Stephanie Courtney

Over It Awful Lot

One of the problems in the Navy is that tradition of being captain of the ship. And an awful lot of people can be retired in the Navy, get over it, get a life, and go on. But there's a lot who can't. And when they have to give up the ship, they got to be captain of something, every single day.

- Patricia Schroeder

Process Select

The Navy runs their process. The House of Representatives doesn't do anything about their process. We do not select. Navy officers select.

- Patricia Schroeder

Behind Been

My entire history with the Navy have been trying to get the Navy to focus on families and child care and all the things that they were way behind in - housing, all of those things.

- Patricia Schroeder

Necessary Flyer

But I felt it necessary to be part of the war effort and I enlisted in the Navy to be a flyer.

- Paul Berg

Constitution Nation

Those who served, and those who continue to serve in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard took an oath to uphold and protect the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, and we can never forget the importance of their commitment to our Nation.

- Robin Hayes

Been Had

FDR had been Assistant Secretary of the Navy. They told me, now forgotten, just how many pictures of ships they took out of the White House after he died. But he could choose good men.

- Stuart Symington

Looked Signed

I walked in, looked around, and the navy recruiter was a really hot brunette, so I signed up with her.

- Sturgill Simpson

Proportion Shortened

The ship was masted according to the proportion of the navy; but on my application the masts were shortened, as I thought them too much for her, considering the nature of the voyage.

- William Bligh
