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
How on earth are the Chancellor and the Governor of the Bank of England, commending the 'Hard ECU' as they strive to, to be taken as serious participants in the debate against that kind of background noise? I believe that both the Chancellor and the Governor are cricketing enthusiasts, so I hope that there is no monopoly of cricketing metaphors. It is rather like sending your opening batsmen to the crease only for them to find, the moment the first balls are bowled, that their bats have been broken before the game by the team Captain.geoffrey howe
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.
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
Here lies, in the small extreme beach, the Captain Of The End.fernando pessoa
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
Help Me Be Captain
I'm sorry, Captain. One drop.
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
When the Captain throws out his sheet-anchor, and the ship "rides at anchor," as it is called, there is a great strain on every link of that chain; and if one bad link breaks, off goes the anchor, and the ship is driven before the winds, and may be destroyed. Now, our character is very much like the chain; one bad piece vitiates and spoils it. So we must have a pure character.
Foremost Captain of his time, Rich in saving common sense.Alfred Tennyson
It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the Captain of my soul.
