  "The sound of people drowning is something I cannot describe to you and neither can anyone else. It is the most dreadful sound and there is dreadful silence that follows it."
~ Ms. Eva Hart, Titanic survivor
(Died on February 15, 1996 - Age 91)

"We set foot on deck with very thankful hearts, grateful beyond the possibility of adequate expression to feel solid ship beneath us once more."
~ Lawrence Beesley, Titanic survivor
(Reference to boarding the rescue ship Carpathia.)

"I enjoyed myself as if I were in a summer palace"
~Col. Archibald Gracie, Titanic survivor

"There was peace. The world hadn't even tended to its way. Nothing was revealed in the morning and the trembling was not known the night before. It seems to me that the disaster about to occur was the event that not only made the world rub its eyes and awake, but woke it with a start, keeping it moving at a rapidly increasing pace ever since, with less and less peace, satisfaction and happiness. To my mind the world of today awoke April 15, 1912"
~ John B (Jack) Thayer, Titanic survivor

"When one asks me how I can best describe my experience in nearly forty years at sea, I merely say, uneventful. Of course there have been winter gales, and storms and fog and the like. But in all my experience, I have never been in any accident ... or any sort worth speaking about. I have seen but one vessel in distress in all my years at sea. I never saw a wreck and never have been wrecked nor was I ever in any predicament that threatened to end in disaster of any sort."
~ Captain E.J. Smith, prior to sailing the Titanic

"A rudder as big as an elm tree...propellers as big as a windmill. Everything was on a nightmare scale."
~ One eyewitness
