"And do not think of these ships as the Navy. The ships alone are masses of inert matter; they are of themselves powerless. The thing that makes the ships alive, the thing that makes them turn to the right and to the left, and take part in maneuvers, and fire their guns, is the spirit of man. It is the spirit of man that designs and makes and vivifies the ships. The Navy is not composed of ships: the Navy is composed of men. The ships are the tools they use."
From the Forward written by Admiral Fiske in the book,
The U.S. Navy by E. Muller Jr., Rand McNally & Co., New York 1917
