Had to google that one...
Kissed by Mother Carey: This is another way of saying, "Once a sailor, always a sailor." It is an old superstition that all boys who go to sea were kissed in their infancy by the sailorman's guardian angel Mata Cara (Mother Carey).
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
