Famous quotes containing the words class, navy, destroyer and/or escort:

    The intellectual is a middle-class product; if he is not born into the class he must soon insert himself into it, in order to exist. He is the fine nervous flower of the bourgeoisie.
    Louise Bogan (1897–1970)

    I wish to reiterate all the reasons which [my predecessor] has presented in favor of the policy of maintaining a strong navy as the best conservator of our peace with other nations and the best means of securing respect for the assertion of our rights of the defense of our interests, and the exercise of our influence in international matters.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    There is a concept that is the corrupter and destroyer of all others. I speak not of Evil, whose limited empire is that of ethics; I speak of the infinite.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)

    When you escort someone, escort him all the way to his destination; if you help someone, help him thoroughly.
    Chinese proverb.
