Famous quotes containing the words john and/or fell:

    Look Johnny, Spig just joined the Navy. I’m married to it. I run the mess hall. I swab the deck. I chip the rust. You’re afraid that they’ll kick Spig out of the Navy. I’m afraid that they won’t.
    Frank Fenton, William Wister Haines, co-scenarist, and John Ford. Minne Wead (Maureen O’Hara)

    In the fell clutch of circumstance,
    I have not winced nor cried aloud:
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.
    —W.E. (William Ernest)
