Awards are not as important to me as when I meet a 10-year-old kid who says, "I love Captain Jack Sparrow."
Please don't worry about me, Captain Patzig. I'm an incurable optimist. And as far as those fellows are concerned, I think I know how to get along with them.wilhelm canaris
Like being the Captain of a mine-sweeper, if you do your job well, nobody notices. If you don't, there's a hell of an explosion.Henry Catto
Did you ever hear of Captain Wattle? He was all for love, and a little for the bottle.Porfirio Diaz
A correspondent, Captain Charles Christie R.E., to whom I have shown these sections after they were printed, objects reasonably enough that commodity should not have been represented by M, or Mass, but by some symbol, for instance Q, which would include quantity of space or time or force, in fact almost any kind of quantity.william stanley jevons
Occupied by the Portuguese for four and a half centuries, traces of the European influence are still there...where the laid-back, susegado (contentment, not laziness) is vaguely palpable. Legend has it that a Portuguese Captain Diogo de Mello first found it because it was a storm that forced him to take shelter there while on his way to Ormuz .
Alarmed by the famine of 1770, Captain John Garstin built this huge granary Golghar for the British army in 1786. The massive structure is 29 m high and the walls are 3.6 m wide at the base. The winding stairway around this monument offers a brilliant panoramic view of the city and the Ganga flowing by.
Mahomet was a great man, an intrepid soldier; with a handful of men he triumphed at the battle of Bender (sic); a great Captain, eloquent, a great man of state, he revived his fatherland and created a new people and a new power in the middle of Arabia.
There is something beautiful about virtue, Captain. But I am just a poor guy.georg büchner
Of Captain Elliot, already so well known to the government, it would be almost superfluous to speak; in this action, he evinced his characteristic bravery and judgment; and, since the close of the action, has given me the most able and essential assistance.oliver hazard perry
The personal deportment of Captain Perry, throughout the day, was worthy of all praise. He did not quit his own vessel when she became useless, to retire from the battle, but to gain it; an end that was fully obtained, and an effort which resulted in triumph.oliver hazard perry
At the penultimate moment, his words, his only ones, words wholly unobstructed in the utterance were these "God bless Captain Vere!"Herman Melville
Captain or Colonel, or Knight in Arms, Whose chance on these defenceless doors may seize, If ever deed of honour did thee please, Guard them, and him within protect from harms.john milton
Did you ever hear of Captain Wattle? He was all for love and a little for the bottle.charles dibdin
Captain! Help... please, help...
They'll survive. Captain Janeway and I made sure of that. It's you who underestimated us.
The Captain, thinking over this event afterward, realized that by his own lifelong standards he had a crew composed entirely of lunatics, with himself well to the front in degree of aberration; but he was fairly sure that this particular form of insanity was going to be useful.hal clement
I should be judged as a Captain who went from Spain to the Indies to conquer a people numerous and warlike, whose manners and religion are very different from ours, who live in sierras and mountains, without fixed settlements, and where by divine will I have placed under the sovereignty of the King and Queen our Lords, an Other World, whereby Spain, which was reckoned poor, is become the richest of countries.christopher columbus
Ride, Captain ride, upon your mystery ship, be amazed, at the friends, you have here on your trip. Ride, Captain ride, upon your mystery ship, on your way, to a world, that others might have missed.
Lamachus chid a Captain for a fault; and when he had said he would do so no more, "Sir," said he, "in war there is no room for a second miscarriage." Said one to Iphicrates, "What are ye afraid of?" "Of all speeches," said he, "none is so dishonourable for a general as ‘I should not have thought of it.'"Plutarch
Most men do not feel in themselves the competence required for leading their group to victory, and therefore seek out a Captain who appears to possess the courage and sagacity necessary for the achievement of supremacy. Even in religion this impulse appears. Nietzsche accused Christianity of inculcating a slave-morality, but ultimate triumph was always the goal. "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. "bertrand russell
"Companions," said he [Saturninus], "you have lost a good Captain, to make of him a bad general."Michel de Montaigne
