John Paul Jones Memorial

This was an unplanned part of out trip. We happened to see it on our way back to the metro station.

Many of us remember John Paul Jones as the famous Scottish-born American naval fighter in the Revolutionary War who said, "Surrender? I have not yet begun to fight!"
Here are a few other quotes by him:
"If fear is cultivated it will become stronger, if faith is cultivated it will achieve mastery."
"It seems to be the law of nature, inflexible and inexorable, that those who will not risk cannot win."
"I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast; for I intend to get in harm's way."
