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.
I had rather have a plain, russet-coated Captain, that knows what he fights for, and loves what he knows, than that which you call a Gentle-man and is nothing else.Oliver Cromwell

I am just now not reading but devouring Captain Mahan's book and am trying to learn it by heart. It is a first-class book and classical on all points.
There is simply no room left for 'freedom from the tyranny of government' since city dwellers depend on it for food, power, water, transportation, protection, and welfare. Your right to live where you want, with companions of your choosing, under laws to which you agree, died in the eighteenth century with Captain Mission. Only a miracle or a disaster could restore it.William S. Burroughs
Captain Price! We're on our own, sir!
heh..heh Goodbye, Captain Price.
Don't worry... Captain Hammer will save us...
(Captain McCrea: Auto. . . you . . . are . . . relieved . . . of . . . dutyyy . . .) ( flips switch from AUTO to MANUAL ) Nooooooooo...
Captain, why? Our king... what have you done?
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.W(illiam) E(rnest) Henley
How on earth are the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Governor of the Bank of England?to be taken seriouslyagainst that kind of background noise? 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.Baron Howe
Above all we should, in the century since Darwin, have come to know that man, while now Captain of the adventuring ship, is hardly the sole object of its quest, and that his prior assumptions to this effect arose from the simple necessity of whistling in the dark. These things, I say, should have come to us. I fear they have not come to many.aldo leopold
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 .
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.
I would have followed you, my brother... My Captain... My king.
