: Will somebody please tell me the origin of the phrase?

:::No-one has responded to this which I think is a shame because it has such a romantic (in the fantasy sense) sound to it. A corsair (please correct me if I'm wrong, is a pirate or a pirate's vessel), so what does this mean.

Anwar, where did you read/hear this? What is its context?
