Famous quotes containing the words lieutenants and/or lord:

    Old soldiers, Miss Dandridge. Someday you’ll learn how they hate to give up. Captain of a troop one day, every man’s face turned toward ya. Lieutenants jump when I growl. Now tomorrow, I’ll be glad if the blacksmith asks me to shoe a horse.
    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)

    The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony
    of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
    Bible: Hebrew Psalm XIX (l. XIX, 7)
