Admiral Raymond Spruance said it

As quoted in The Quiet Warrior: A Biography of Admiral Raymond A. Spruance:

I can see plenty of changes in weapons, methods, and procedures in naval warfare brought about technical developments, but I can see no change in the future role of our Navy from what it has been for ages past for the Navy of a dominant sea power - to gain and exercise the control of the sea that its country requires to win the war, and to prevent its opponent from using the sea for its purposes. This will continue so long as geography makes the United States an insular power and so long as the surface of the sea remains the great highway connecting the nations of the world.
Help prevent sea blindness, quote a naval thinker to a friend and suggest they do the same.
