Please tell me who said: "A ship is safe in the harbour, but that is not what ships are built for."



Answers:
I googled it and one site attributes it to someone called William Shedd, but that's not a very helpful answer.

William Shedd then turns up on: www.thinkexist.com/quotes/will... and

www.thefamousquotations.com/au...

so it seems he said lots of things which people remember, bt if he wasn't the originator of this, maybe he snitched some of his other famous quotes too.

Another site http://www.quotiki.com/quote.aspx?id=744... attributes it to someone called Admiral Grace Hopper: "A ship in harbor is safe — but that is not what ships were built for."


I give up.

You did.
There was a reference to it in Nelson Demille's Plum Island.
