Famous quotes containing the words general and/or major:

    It was the words “descended into Hades”
    That seemed too pagan to our liberal youth.
    You know they suffered from a general onslaught.
    And well, if they weren’t true why keep right on
    Saying them like the heathen? We could drop them.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Look, I’m not saying he didn’t make some major mistakes. When it comes to value judgments, Rob is right up there with Custer and Nixon.
    Jonathan Reynolds, screenwriter. Leo (Richard Mulligan)
