Quotations:

  1. Walt Disney – There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates loot on Treasure Island and best of all, you can enjoy these riches every day of your life.
  2. Erin Morgenstern – Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, when the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang souchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative. There’s magic in that. It’s in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift. Your sister may be able to see the future, but you yourself can shape it, boy. Do not forget that there are many kinds of magic, after all.
  3. S.C. Stephens – Dude, he’s Australian, not a pirate.
  4. Johnny Depp – Life’s pretty good, and why wouldn’t it be? I’m a pirate, after all.
  5. Andy Weir – I’ve been thinking about laws on Mars. Yeah, I know, it’s a stupid thing to think about, but I have a lot of free time. There’s an international treaty saying no country can lay claim to anything that’s not on Earth. And by another treaty, if you’re not in any country’s territory, maritime law applies. So Mars is international waters. NASA is an American nonmilitary organization, and it owns the Hab. So while I’m in the Hab, American law applies. As soon as I step outside, I’m in international waters. Then when I get in the rover, I’m back to American law. Here’s the cool part: I will eventually go to Schiaparelli and commandeer the Ares 4 lander. Nobody explicitly gave me permission to do this, and they can’t until I’m aboard Ares 4 and operating the common system. After I board Ares 4, before talking to NASA, I will take control of a craft in international waters without permission. That makes me a pirate! A space pirate!
  6. Becca Fitzpatrick – You don’t deserve me, he agreed. You deserve better. But you’re stuck with me, and you might as well get over it. Scooping me under him in one agile movement, he rolled on top of me, his black eyes all pirate. I have no intention of letting you go easily, something to keep in mind. I don’t care if it’s another man, your mother, or the powers of hell trying to pry us apart, I’m not easing up and I’m not saying good-bye.
  7. Johnny Depp – My daughter was asked by a little old lady in a London hotel restaurant what her daddy did. She answered, He’s a pirate. I was very proud of that answer.
  8. V.E. Schwab – She was a thief, a runaway, a pirate, a magician. She was fierce, and powerful, and terrifying. She was still a mystery. And he loved her.
  9. Voltaire – I should like to know which is worse: to be ravished a hundred times by pirates, and have a buttock cut off, and run the gauntlet of the Bulgarians, and be flogged and be dissected, and have to row in a galley in short, to undergo all the miseries we have each of us suffered or simply to sit here and do nothing? That is a hard question, said Candide.
  10. Jarod Kintz – I want to be a naughty pirate, because when I put on that eye patch, it barely covers my genitals.

Sample sentences:

  1. As children we were taught to memorize this year with pride and joy as the year people began living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America. Actually, people had been living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America for hundreds of years before that. 1492 was simply the year sea pirates began to rob, cheat, and kill them.
  2. Can you draw a skeleton riding a motorcycle with flames coming out of it? And I want a pirate hat on the skeleton. And a parrot on his shoulder. A skeleton parrot. Or maybe a ninja skeleton parrot? No, that would be overkill. But it’d be cool if the biker skeleton could be shooting some ninja throwing stars. That are on fire.
  3. Save yourselves! Percy warned. It is too late for us! Then he gasped and pointed to the spot where Frank was hiding. Oh, no! Frank is turning into a crazy dolphin. Nothing happened. I said, Percy repeated, Frank is turning into a crazy dolphin. Frank stumbled out of nowhere, making a big show of grabbing his throat. Oh no, he said, like he was reading from a teleprompter. I am turning into a crazy dolphin. He began to change, his nose elongating into a snout, his skin becoming sleek and gray. He fell to the deck as a dolphin, his tail thumping against the boards. The pirate crew disbanded in terror.
  4. I cannot have a man who is afraid of everything, I don’t have the time to soothe insecurities and fears, I cannot have a man who is standing on a stone by a creek, watching for the fish to swim by and every time he sees a fish he says, Oh look, this fish scares me, I wonder what this fish means, this fish might mean- this, or this fish might mean- that for God’s sake, they are just fish, and they don’t mean anything! Such a sad thing, so many fine, strong men standing on top of little stones, pointing at fish all the time! Such a waste! Such a waste of time! I can only have a man who will leap into the water, not minding the damn fish and whatever other little things that scare him. I need to have someone who is braver than me; if I am a pirate, he has to be the pirate Captain, if I am a pirate Captain he has to be the flying dragon.
  5. I used to love the ocean. Everything about her. Her coral reefs, her white caps, her roaring waves, the rocks they lap, her pirate legends and mermaid tails, Treasures lost and treasures held, And all of her fish in the sea. Yes, I used to love the ocean, Everything about her. The way she would sing me to sleep as I lay in my bed then wake me with a force that I soon came to dread. Her fables, her lies, her misleading eyes, I’d drain her dry. If I cared enough to. I used to love the ocean, Everything about her. Her coral reefs, her white caps, her roaring waves, the rocks they lap, her pirate legends and mermaid tails, treasures lost and treasures held. And all of her fish in the sea. Well, if you’ve ever tried navigating your sailboat through her stormy seas, you would realize that her white caps are your enemies. If you’ve ever tried swimming ashore when your leg gets a cramp and you just had a huge meal of In-n-Out burgers that’s weighing you down, and her roaring waves are knocking the wind out of you, filling your lungs with water as you flail your arms, trying to get someone’s attention, but your friends just wave back at you? And if you’ve ever grown up with dreams in your head about life, and how one of these days you would pirate your own ship and have your own crew and that all of the mermaids would love only you? Well, you would realize. Like I eventually realized. That all the good things about her? All the beautiful? It’s not real. It’s fake. So you keep your ocean, I’ll take the Lake.
  6. Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates.
  7. Some pirates achieved immortality by great deeds of cruelty. Some achieved immortality by amassing great wealth. But the captain had long ago decided that he would, on the whole, prefer to achieve immortality by not dying.
  8. It’s like you said the other day, said Adam. You grow up reading about pirates and cowboys and spacemen and stuff, and just when you think the world’s full of amazing things, they tell you it’s really all dead whales and chopped-down forests and nuclear waste hanging about for millions of years. Snot worth growing up for, if you ask my opinion.
  9. It was like walking into a treasure trove of books, hoarded by pirate librarians.
  10. For once, I agree with Blake. Daemon met my shocked stare. We can’t, Kitten. Not now. I wasn’t okay with this, but I couldn’t run down the hall, letting people free. We didn’t plan for that and we only had a set amount of time. It sucked-sucked worse than people who pirated books, sucked more than a year for the next book in a beloved series, and sucked more than a brutal cliffhanger ending.
  11. I am Delilah Bard, she thought, as the ropes cut into her skin. I am a thief and a pirate and a traveler. I have set foot in three different worlds, and lived. I have shed the blood of royals and held magic in my hands.
  12. If you are a monster, stand up. If you are a monster, a trickster, a fiend, if you’ve built a steam-powered wishing machine if you have a secret, a dark past, a scheme, If you kidnap maidens or dabble in dreams come stand by me. If you have been broken, stand up. If you have been broken, abandoned, alone if you have been starving, a creature of bone. If you live in a tower, a dungeon, a throne if you weep for wanting, to be held, to be known, come stand by me. If you are a savage, stand up . If you are a witch, a dark queen, a black knight, if you are a mummer, a pixie, a sprite, if you are a pirate, a tomcat, a wright, If you swear by the moon and you fight the hard fight, Come stand by me. If you are a devil, stand up. If you are a villain, a madman, a beast, If you are a prowler, a priest, if you are a dragon come sit at our feast, for we all have stripes, and we all have horns, We all have scales, tails, manes, claws and thorns and here in the dark is where new worlds are born. Come stand by me.
  13. Not going to walk me to the door? I asked, pretending to be shocked at his lack of gallantry. Of course I am, many would think that a bonny lass such as yourself wouldst be able to stay out of trouble for a distance of fifteen feet, but I know better. Did you just use the words yourself and wouldst in the same sentence? You can’t be a pirate and a courtier at the same time.
  14. Hello, old friend. And here we are. You and me, on the last page. By the time you read these words, Rory and I will be long gone. So know that we lived well and were very happy. And above all else, know that we will love you always. Sometimes I do worry about you though. I think once we’re gone you won’t be coming back here for awhile. And you might be alone. Which you should never be. Don’t be alone, Doctor. And do one more thing for me. There’s a little girl waiting in a garden. She’s going to wait a long while, so she’s going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she’s patient, the days are coming that she’ll never forget. Tell her she’ll go to see and fight pirates. She’ll fall in love with a man who’ll wait two thousand years to keep her safe. Tell her she’ll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived. And save a whale in outer space. Tell her, this is the story of Amelia Pond. And this is how it ends.
  15. She always did like tales of adventure stories full of brightness and darkness. She could tell you the names of all King Arthur’s knights, and she knew everything about Beowulf and Grendel, the ancient gods and the not-quite-so-ancient heroes. She liked pirate stories, too, but most of all she loved books that had at least a knight or a dragon or a fairy in them. She was always on the dragon’s side by the way.
  16. I had found a new friend. The surprising thing is where I’d found him not up a tree or sulking in the shade, or splashing around in one of the hill streams, but in a book. No one had told us kids to look there for a friend. Or that you could slip inside the skin of another. Or travel to another place with marshes, and where, to our ears, the bad people spoke like pirates.
  17. You want me to list characteristics of a, Potential mate, yes, that would be helpful. Without meaning to, I looked sideways at Patch. He was eased back in his seat, one notch above a slouch, studying me with satisfaction. He flashed his pirate smile and mouthed, We’re waiting. I stacked my hands on the table, hoping I looked more composed than I felt. I’ve never thought about it before. Well, think fast. Could you call on someone else first? Coach gestured impatiently to my left. You’re up, Patch. Unlike me, Patch spoke with confidence. He had himself positioned so his body was angled slightly toward mine, our knees mere inches apart. Intelligent. Attractive. Vulnerable.
  18. The pirates wanted my life, Vargen wanted my country, and my regents wanted to paint rainbows over reality and claim all was well.
  19. If you have ever seen the play Peter Pan you will remember how the pirate chief was always making his dying speech because he was afraid that possibly when the time came for him to die he might not have time to get it off his chest. It is much the same with me, and so, although I am not at this moment dying, I shall be doing so one of these days and I want to send you a parting word of goodbye. Remember, it is the last you will ever hear from me, so think it over. I have had a most happy life and I want each one of you to have as happy a life too. I believe that God put us in this jolly world to be happy and enjoy life. Happiness doesn’t come from being rich, nor merely from being successful in your career, nor by self-indulgence. One step towards happiness is to make yourself healthy and strong while you are a boy, so that you can be useful and so can enjoy life when you are a man. Nature study will show you how full of beautiful and wonderful things God has made the world for you to enjoy. Be contented with what you have got and make the best of it. Look on the bright side of things instead of the gloomy one. But the real way to get happiness is by giving out happiness to other people. Try and leave this world a little better than you found it and when your turn come to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you have not wasted your time but have done your best. Be Prepared in this way, to live happy and to die happy stick to your Scout promise always even after you have ceased to be a boy and God help you do it.
