Famous quotes containing the word orders:

    What is all wisdom save a collection of platitudes? Take fifty of our current proverbial sayings—they are so trite, so threadbare, that we can hardly bring our lips to utter them. None the less they embody the concentrated experience of the race and the man who orders his life according to their teaching cannot go far wrong.
    Norman Douglas (1868–1952)

    I’ve got orders to obey, thank God.
    Robert Bolt (1924–1995)
