Officer

Famous quotes containing the word officer:

    That’s all right, sir. A commanding officer doesn’t need brains, just a good, loud voice.
    Cyril Hume, and Fred McLeod Wilcox. Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon)

    The duties which a police officer owes to the state are of a most exacting nature. No one is compelled to choose the profession of a police officer, but having chosen it, everyone is obliged to live up to the standard of its requirements. To join in that high enterprise means the surrender of much individual freedom.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    A true military officer is in one particular like a true monk. Not with more self-abnegation will the latter keep his vows of monastic obedience than the former his vows of allegiance to martial duty.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
