Troops

Famous quotes containing the word troops:

    A general is just as good or just as bad as the troops under his command make him.
    Douglas MacArthur (1880–1964)

    Nearly all the bands are mustered out of service; ours therefore is a novelty. We marched a few miles yesterday on a road where troops have not before marched. It was funny to see the children. I saw our boys running after the music in many a group of clean, bright-looking, excited little fellows.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    I have lived long enough: my way of life
    Is fallen into the sere, the yellow leaf;
    And that which should accompany old age,
    As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends,
    I must not look to have.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
