Famous quotes containing the words wear and/or peter:

    On board ship there are many sources of joy of which the land knows nothing. You may flirt and dance at sixty; and if you are awkward in the turn of a valse, you may put it down to the motion of the ship. You need wear no gloves, and may drink your soda-and-brandy without being ashamed of it.
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)

    In a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence.
    —Laurence J. Peter (1919–1990)
