    Re: Quotations

    Welcome to the forums.

    Both of these would be better with a context in which you met them.

    Without context:

    "He's just a little ship in a harbour" seems to be much the same as "He is a little fish in a big pond" = he is not very important as a person

    "The woods are burning" = Things are out of control.
