„A ship in port is safe; but that is not what ships are built for. Sail out to sea and do new things.“

—  Grace Hopper American computer scientist and United States Navy officer 1906 - 1992

This saying appears to be due to John Augustus Shedd; it was quoted in "Grace Hopper : The Youthful Teacher of Us All" by Henry S. Tropp in Abacus Vol. 2, Issue 1 (Fall 1984) ISSN 0724-6722 . She did repeat this saying on multiple occasions, but she called it "a motto that has stuck with me" and did not claim coinage.
