General Eisenhower

Famous quotes containing the words general and/or eisenhower:

    A private should preserve a respectful attitude toward his superiors, and should seldom or never proceed so far as to offer suggestions to his general in the field. If the battle is not being conducted to suit him, it is better for him to resign. By the etiquette of war, it is permitted to none below the rank of newspaper correspondent to dictate to the general in the field.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Like all successful politicians I married above myself.
    —Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890–1969)
