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)

    If the tax-gatherer, or any other public officer, asks me, as one has done, “But what shall I do?” my answer is, “If you really wish to do anything, resign your office.” When the subject has refused allegiance, and the officer has resigned his office, then the revolution is accomplished.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Oh he’s doing fine, Michael. Nevertheless, he’s an officer and a gentleman, and that’s no job for a gentleman.
    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)
