Famous quotes containing the words counsel and/or general:

    Where two take counsel there is no lack of plans.
    Silius Italicus (26–101)

    There was not a tree as far as we could see, and that was many miles each way, the general level of the upland being about the same everywhere. Even from the Atlantic side we overlooked the Bay, and saw to Manomet Point in Plymouth, and better from that side because it was the highest.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
