Put your quotable quotes here:

"He wrapped himself in quotations—as a beggar would enfold himself in the purple of emperors." Rudyard Kipling
"Now listen to me you benighted muckers. We're going to teach you soldiering. The world's noblest profession. When we're done with you, you'll be able to slaughter your enemies like civilized men." Daniel Dravot

I'm going to tell that one to the fishing guys at the office tomorrow.  But, I'll ask if that's the only occasion.

“In peace-armies discipline meant the hunt, not of an average but of an absolute; the hundred per cent standard in which the ninety-nine were played down to the level of the weakest man on parade…. The deeper the discipline, the lower was the individual excellence; also the more sure the performance."

– T. E. Lawrence Seven Pillars of Wisdom
