Everyone’s got to make one submarine drama in their life.

Isoroku Yamamoto
In the long course of history, having people who understand your thought is much greater security than another submarine.

This is no job for a UN committee. It needs the same kind of unwavering dedication and the kinds of people that got us the first nuclear submarine and the first man on the moon.
Wilson Greatbatch
The submarine genre is a category with all its own rules. But shooting on water is famously tough.

Greg van Eekhout
It was a civilian ship, and the Lusitania could outrun any submarine. So this population of people was very confident that Cunard and the Royal Navy would be looking after them. Why weren’t they under convoy? That’s the real question.
Erik Larson
When you’re on a submarine you’re usually underwater for months at a time, and you don’t get to Skype or make phone calls. When you get messages, they’re maybe two sentences. They’re very short.
Jessy Schram
Captain William Thomas Turner, hero; villain, Schwieger. As I started doing research into him and into the submarine and so forth, I found that I was growing increasingly sympathetic to him. He’s a young guy, 30, handsome, well-liked by his crew, humane.
Erik Larson
I’m not a film-school guy. I was a high-school dropout. I was on a nuclear submarine. I was an electrician. I was a house painter.
David Ayer
I think that one of the nice things about the Yellow Submarine movie is that it seems to be perennial. People enjoy watching from each generation. And it was like the Beatles themselves. You know the Beatles seem to find new audience each time another generation comes along.
George Martin
The biggest yacht that I have accommodates a submarine.
Paul Allen
On shipbuilding, on submarine building, warship building, coastal surveillance or small vessel building, we have both public and private sector. The capacities have really been scaled up, and the skill sets, hi-tech skill sets, have been acquired.

Colin Firth
I’ve done four other films since ‘Submarine,’ so that’s quite cool. It’s just good to have people respect your work; I’ve never had that before. Yeah, my life has changed crazy.

Craig Roberts

Room 40 knew a U-boat was heading south to Liverpool – knew the boat’s history; knew that it was now somewhere in the North Atlantic under orders to sink troop transports and any other British vessel it encountered; and knew as well that the submarine was armed with enough shells and torpedoes to sink a dozen ships.
Erik Larson

Some parts of our oceans, like the rich and mysterious recesses of our Atlantic submarine canyons and seamounts, are so stunning and sensitive they deserve to be protected from destructive activities.

Andrew Rosenthal
I do think hubris played a role here as well, the belief that the Lusitania was too big and too fast to ever be caught by any submarine, and that, in any case, no U-boat commander would think to attack the ship because to do so would violate the long-held rules governing naval warfare against merchant shipping.
Erik Larson
I always like to grow, and I recognise that the Yellow Submarine have helped me.
Diego Godin
