Цитаты Джон Пол Джонс

„I have not yet begun to fight!“

— John Paul Jones
His famous response, in the early phase of the Battle of Flamborough Head, (23 September 1779) to an inquiry by his opponent (Captain Richard Pearson of the Royal Navy ship HMS Serapis) as to whether he was surrendering his ship, the USS Bonhomme Richard, as recounted in the [http://www.historycentral.com/revolt/battleaccounts/Jones/Johnpaul.html reminiscences of Jones's First Lieutenant, Richard Dale], as published in The Life and Character of John Paul Jones, a Captain in the United States Navy (1825) by John Henry Sherburne:

„I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast; for I intend to go in harm's way.“

— John Paul Jones
Letter to Le Ray de Chaumont (16 November 1778), as quoted in The Naval History of the United States (1890) by Willis John Abbot, p. 82

„Surrender? I have not yet begun to fight!“

— John Paul Jones, Memoirs Of Rear-admiral John Paul Jones

„That flag and I are twins, born in the same hour from the same womb of destiny. We cannot be parted in life or in death.“

— John Paul Jones
This statement was attributed to Jones in a 1900 biography by Augustus C. Buell which contains much material now believed to have been fabricated by Buell. Variant: That flag and I are twins. We were born at the same hour. We cannot be parted in life or death. So long as we float, we shall float together.

„Where men of fine feeling are concerned there is seldom misunderstanding.“

— John Paul Jones
Letter from Jones to the Marquis de Lafayette, (1 May 1779)

„I may sink, but I'll be damned if I strike!“

— John Paul Jones
His much less famous response, in the late phase of the Battle of Flamborough Head, 23 September 1779, to an inquiry by his opponent (Captain Richard Pearson of the Royal Navy ship HMS Serapis) as to whether he was surrendering his ship, the USS Bonhomme Richard, which was by this time very seriously damaged. :This was what some of his sailors, reported in British newspapers at the time, claimed he had said; Jones's official report merely stated that he had answered ""in the most determined negative"".
