Rigging Quotations

John Millington Synge

There came to port last Sunday night the queerest little craft, without an inch of rigging on; I looked and looked - and laughed. It seemed so curious that she should cross the unknown water, and moor herself within my room - my daughter! O my daughter!
George Washington Cable

The thing about rigging is, you can learn it if you become a master rigger but there's no book on rigging.
