Head Officer

Famous quotes containing the words head and/or officer:

    “If my head hurt a hair’s foot
    Pack back the downed bone. If the unpricked ball of my breath
    Bump on a spout let the bubbles jump out....”
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    When Prince William [later King William IV] was at Cork in 1787, an old officer ... dined with him, and happened to say he had been forty years in the service. The Prince with a sneer asked what he had learnt in those forty years. The old gentleman justly offended, said, “Sir, I have learnt, when I am no longer fit to fight, to make as good a retreat as I can” —and walked out of the room.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)
