Famous quotes containing the words special and/or troops:

    We’ve got to figure these things a little bit different than most people. Y’know, there’s something about going out in a plane that beats any other way.... A guy that washes out at the controls of his own ship, well, he goes down doing the thing that he loved the best. It seems to me that that’s a very special way to die.
    Dalton Trumbo (1905–1976)

    O, now for ever
    Farewell the tranquil mind, farewell content,
    Farewell the plum├Ęd troops and the big wars
    That makes ambition virtue! O, farewell!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
