Famous quotes containing the words army and/or model:

    What is called common sense is excellent in its department, and as invaluable as the virtue of conformity in the army and navy,—for there must be subordination,—but uncommon sense, that sense which is common only to the wisest, is as much more excellent as it is more rare.

    Stefan Zweig (18811942)
