Famous quotes containing the word command:

    We can’t command our love, but we can our actions.
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    I, who should command a regiment,
    Do amble amiably here, O God,
    One of the neat ones in your awkward squad.
    Norman Cameron (b. 1905)

    Under bare Ben Bulben’s head
    In Drumcliff churchyard Yeats is laid.
    An ancestor was rector there
    Long years ago, a church stands near,
    By the road an ancient cross.
    No marble, no conventional phrase;
    On limestone quarried near the spot
    By his command these words are cut:
    Cast a cold eye
    On life, on death.
    Horseman pass by!
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
