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.
: Bad language or abuse, I never, never use, Whatever the emergency; Though 'Bother it' I may Occasionally say, I never use a big, big D : What, never? : No, never! : What never? : Well, hardly ever! : Hardly ever swears a big, big D Then give three cheers, and one cheer more, For the well-bred Captain of the Pinafore!Sir W(illiam) S(chwenck) Gilbert

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
At the penultimate moment, his words, his only ones, words wholly unobstructed in the utterance were these "God bless Captain Vere!"Herman Melville
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
What would you do if your country's welfare depended on labor? When a ship is in a storm it requires one Captain.fritz sauckel
To hold the same views at forty as we held at twenty is to have been stupefied for a score of years, and take rank, not as a prophet, but as an unteachable brat, well birched and none the wiser. It is as if a ship Captain should sail to India from the Port of London; and having brought a chart of the Thames on deck at his first setting out, should obstinately use no other for the whole voyage.Robert Louis Stevenson
Saturninus said, "Comrades, you have lost a good Captain to make him an ill general."Michel de Montaigne
Orcs will often pursue foes for many leagues into the plain, if they have a fallen Captain to avenge.
