Famous quotes containing the words kirby and/or bill:

    Well, on the official record you’re my son. But on this post you’re just another trooper. You heard me tell the recruits what I need from them. Twice that I will expect from you.... You’ve chosen my way of life. I hope you have the guts enough to endure it. But put outa your mind any romantic ideas that it’s a way to glory. It’s a life of suffering and of hardship and uncompromising devotion to your oath and your duty.
    James Kevin McGuinness, and John Ford. Lt. Col. Kirby Yorke (John Wayne)

    He showed me his bill of fare to tempt me to dine with him; said I, I value not your bill of fare, give me your bill of company.
