John Paul Jones Quotes

I have not yet begun to fight.

Sailors ought never to give up while the ship remains.

I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast; for I intend to go in harm’s way.

Every engagement I have been in thus far has made me return, not my implements of war, but my watch.

Those who will not risk cannot win.

The country may need heroes, but it is not heroes who make a country.

It seems to be a law of nature, inflexible and inexorable, that those who will not risk cannot win.

He who will not risk cannot win.

I am determined to fight, and if it is in the cause of freedom alone, I am sure that our generous nation will reward me.

I have no ambition, unless it be the ambition that comes from my duty and my conscience.
