#1. When the climbers in 1953 planted their flags on the highest mountain, they set them in snow over the skeletons of creatures that had lived in the warm clear ocean that India, moving north, blanked out. Possibly as much as twenty thousand feet below the seafloor, the skeletal remains had turned into rock. This one fact is a treatise in itself on the movements of the surface of the earth. If by some fiat I had to restrict all this writing to one sentence, this is the one I would choose: The summit of Mt. Everest is marine limestone. - Author: John McPhee
Coneys Marine quotes by John McPhee
#2. The Marine Corps is the Navy's police force and as long as I am President that is what it will remain. They have a propaganda machine that is almost equal to Stalin's. - Author: Harry S. Truman
Coneys Marine quotes by Harry S. Truman
#3. The gunnery sergeant didn't crack a smile at the radio intercept of Faith's concept of a backup plan, an intercept that had caused Commander Bradburn, skipper of the Dallas, to literally fall out of his command chair laughing. Sands managed to watch the video stone-faced as she boarded the Voyage and began her "fifteen minutes of mayhem," set in the video to the tune of Chumbawamba's Tubthumping. He managed to keep a straight face the third time she popped back up like a jack-in-the-box after being dogpiled by zombies. He held it in during her overheard running commentary as the rest of the Marines, even the NCOs, started rolling on the deck.

It was when she got the Halligan tool stuck in a zombie's head and overbalanced that he snorted. When she unstuck her bent machete and it caught a male zombie in the groin he started laughing out loud. When the, admittedly not petite, girl stuck a boot knife in a zombie's eye then threw him over the side, tears started running down his face and he completely lost his composure as a senior NCO of the United States Marine Corps. - Author: John Ringo

Coneys Marine quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
#6. I don't think anybody, actor or marine, is ever going to enjoy boot camp. It certainly wasn't at all enjoyable. Informative and educational, yes, but it was pretty tortuous. - Author: Ashton Holmes
Coneys Marine quotes by Ashton Holmes
#7. If the Marines are abolished half the efficiency of the Navy will be destroyed. They are as necessary to the well being of a ship as the officers. Instead of decreasing the Corps, I would rather hope to see a large increase, for we feel the want of Marines very much. - Author: David Dixon Porter
Coneys Marine quotes by David Dixon Porter
#8. Once The Boo roamed this campus fierce, alert, and lion-voiced, and his wrath was a terrible thing. He could scream and rant and call us "bums" a thousand times, but he could not hide his clear and overwhelming love of the Corps. The Corps received that love, took it in, felt it in the deepest places, and now, tonight, we give it back at the school where we started out and we give it to The Boo, as a gift, because once, many years ago, The Boo loved us first, when we were cadets of boys and when we needed it the most. - Author: Pat Conroy
Coneys Marine quotes by Pat Conroy

#11. I originally envisioned myself doing something with the suffix 'ology' at the end of it, like marine biology or entomology. But after I started to do some acting gigs, I thought it wasn't a bad thing ... I said to myself, 'I might as well keep riding this bus until the wheels fall off.' - Author: Callan McAuliffe
Coneys Marine quotes by Callan McAuliffe
#12. No aquarium, no tank in a marine land, however spacious it may be, can begin to duplicate the conditions of the sea. And no dolphin who inhabits one of those aquariums or one of those marine lands can be considered normal. - Author: Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Coneys Marine quotes by Jacques-Yves Cousteau
#13. When the first contingents of U.S. troops were being sent to Saudi Arabia, in August of 1990, Corporal Jeff Patterson, a twenty-two-year-old Marine stationed in Hawaii, sat down on the runway of the airfield and refused to board a plane bound to Saudi Arabia. He asked to be discharged from the Marine Corps:
I have come to believe that there are no justified wars. . . . I began to question exactly what I was doing in the Marine Corps about the time I began to read about history. I began to read up on America's support for the murderous regimes of Guatemala, Iran, under the Shah, and El Salvador. . . . I object to the military use of force against any people, anywhere, any time. - Author: Howard Zinn
Coneys Marine quotes by Howard Zinn
#14. Lemon Featherlight was an ex-Marine, a full-blood Mayaimi Indian, irritatingly handsome in a piratical sort of way, a condition even more grating because all the women loved him, and made even moreso because he was actually a decent guy, and nobody needed that. - Author: Carsten Stroud
Coneys Marine quotes by Carsten Stroud
#15. The ocean is a dangerous place, but it's also a place you can still go and have to yourself, a place that's clean and, yes, wild. If you go into the ocean you're making a choice. You need to know you can drown, you can get lost, or you can be eaten by great beasts. - Author: David Helvarg
Coneys Marine quotes by David Helvarg
#16. In the Marine Corps, your buddy is not only your classmate or fellow officer, but he is also the Marine under your command. If you don't prepare yourself to properly train him, lead him, and support him on the battlefield, then you're going to let him down. That is unforgivable in the Marine Corps. - Author: Chesty Puller
Coneys Marine quotes by Chesty Puller
#17. I think I'm going to cry, this is crazy."
"No, you're just processing. Go ahead and cry."
"I thought men got nervous around crying females."
"I'm a Marine, remember? We're trained to handle anything. - Author: Jayne Ann Krentz
Coneys Marine quotes by Jayne Ann Krentz
#18. Well, I have an undergraduate degree, a couple of bachelor's degrees, from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. - Author: Mark Kelly
Coneys Marine quotes by Mark Kelly
#19. The slaughter of dolphins and other marine mammals is no more horrible than captive dolphins performing tricks because it's not just dolphins were talking about, it's also people. Especially children [...] The effect is devastatingly the same because millions of people every year who watch and cheer this spectacle of dominance are in some way also cheering every other form of environmental ravishment. If dolphin is a reference point in our relationship with nature, then when we teach people that it's okay to abuse dolphins, we're teaching them that it's also okay to abuse the rest of nature. - Author: Richard O'Barry
Coneys Marine quotes by Richard O'Barry
#20. Just imagine the banner headlines if a marine biologist were to discover a species of dolphin that wove large, intricately meshed fishing nets, twenty dolphin-lengths in diameter! Yet we take a spider web for granted, as a nuisance in the house rather than as one of the wonders of the world. And think of the furore if Jane Goodall returned from Gombe stream with photographs of wild chimpanzees building their own houses, well roofed and insulated, of painstakingly selected stones neatly bonded and mortared! Yet caddis larvae, who do precisely that, command only passing interest. - Author: Richard Dawkins
Coneys Marine quotes by Richard Dawkins
#21. The drummer in my first band was killed in Vietnam. He kind of signed up and joined the marines. Bart Hanes was his name. He was one of those guys that was jokin' all the time, always playin' the clown. - Author: Bruce Springsteen
Coneys Marine quotes by Bruce Springsteen
#22. In fact, I didn't know how much Chris had done in Fallujah until he came home. We were at a car wash place one day when someone overheard his name called and went up to him.
"Are you Chris Kyle?" asked the man. His haircut and build made it clear he was military.
"I was in Fallujah," said the young man, who turned out to be a Marine. "You saved my life."
"Y'all saved my ass plenty of times, too," said Chris, referring to Marines.
Others came over, including the father of one of the Marines. He had tears in his eyes when he shook Chris's hand.
"Your husband saved my son's life," he said to me. "Thank you."
What an incredibly small world it is, I thought. For all of these people to have been together so far away, and now just meet by chance in the oddest place.
Or was it part of a cosmic plan? A way of showing Chris that he was appreciated?
I felt proud of him, but I also felt sadness--I imagined being the parent of one of these young men, worried about their welfare and yet unable to do anything to protect them. It was an impotence with few parallels.
Chris just took it all in stride, smiling and waving as he left to get the car. - Author: Taya Kyle
Coneys Marine quotes by Taya Kyle
#23. I think some of my best theatre training has been in the Marine Corps. Not only meeting a bunch of characters, but growing up. You're in really adult situations at a young age, as far as being in charge of people. - Author: Adam Driver
Coneys Marine quotes by Adam Driver
#24. It's being made out that the whole point of the war was to topple the Taliban regime and liberate Afghan women from their burqas, we are being asked to believe that the U.S. marines are actually on a feminist mission. - Author: Arundhati Roy
Coneys Marine quotes by Arundhati Roy

Coneys Marine quotes by Henry Rollins
#27. I've always been fascinated with marine geography and how deep things are. I was spellbound by the tsunami, for example, by the actual maps. There is just something about the unseen bottom of the sea that has always fascinated me, how deep is it. - Author: Joan Didion
Coneys Marine quotes by Joan Didion
#28. I'll wait until we're both old and gray, chasing you around the retirement home while pushing my walker if that's what it takes. - Author: Ann Mayburn
Coneys Marine quotes by Ann Mayburn
#29. A marine protozoan is an aqueous salty system in an aqueous salty medium, but a man is an aqueous salty system in a medium in which there is but little water and most of that poor in salts. - Author: John Zachary Young
Coneys Marine quotes by John Zachary Young
#30. As a young boy, I was very interested - as I still am - in all sorts of adventure and exploration. I thought about being an astronaut, a dinosaur scientist, or marine biologist, but I clearly was drawn to the ocean and to the water. - Author: Brian Skerry
Coneys Marine quotes by Brian Skerry
#31. This dog had shown more courage than I. This great, powerful, beautiful dog was willing to take a chance on me - a broken, depressed, lonely Marine. - Author: Mary Alice Monroe
Coneys Marine quotes by Mary Alice Monroe
#32. First, an apology. I found out while researching that I should have named it, "Cocky Marine," because a Marine personally told me they never call themselves soldiers. "No, only Marines!" To say I was dismayed is an understatement, because unfortunately by that time the cover was already everywhere, the preorder was live with over 2,000 sold by that time, and couldn't be changed. - Author: Faleena Hopkins
Coneys Marine quotes by Faleena Hopkins
#33. If I survived the Marines, I can survive Ali. - Author: Chuck Wepner
Coneys Marine quotes by Chuck Wepner
#34. I can smell the ocean in the distance. The salt wraps around my body, making my skin feel tight, and already I want to shower. I can do big cities, and small cities, and the even the occasional mountaintop is cool. But oceans are ridiculous. They take up way too much space in this overcrowded world and are filled with creatures that have several sets of teeth, like one row of man-eating teeth isn't enough. And just to add insult to injury, all that water isn't even drinkable. If you ask me, the ocean is kind of a prick. - Author: Victoria Scott
Coneys Marine quotes by Victoria Scott
#35. I grew up down in Florida, and in the Keys, there's this place called Sea Camp which was not unlike Space Camp, except you explored the sea. And so that kind of whetted my appetite for that. But then I ended up swimming in a lagoon full of Cassiopeia jellyfish, and that quickly quashed that desire to be a marine biologist. - Author: Joe Lo Truglio
Coneys Marine quotes by Joe Lo Truglio
#36. Call him drunken Ira Hayes, he won't answer any more. Not the whiskey drinking Indian, nor the Marine that went to war. - Author: Johnny Cash
Coneys Marine quotes by Johnny Cash
#37. Any officer can get by on his sergeants. To be a sergeant you have to know your stuff. I'd rather be an outstanding sergeant than just another officer. - Author: Daniel Daly
Coneys Marine quotes by Daniel Daly
#38. The newspapers are the ruling power. Any other government is reduced to a few marines at Fort Independence. If a man neglects to read the Daily Times, government will go down on its knees to him, for this is the only treason these days. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Coneys Marine quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#39. I cannot conjure up an ounce of respect for Bill Clinton when it comes to the military. Every time I see him salute a Marine, it infuriates me. I don't think Bill Clinton cares one iota about what happens in a military unit. - Author: Jim Webb
Coneys Marine quotes by Jim Webb
#40. I'm as deadly as a marine, when compared to marine plant life. It took lots of water, sunlight, and standing still to get this badass. - Author: Jarod Kintz
Coneys Marine quotes by Jarod Kintz

This theme has been that Americans are admittedly rich, that Americans have considerable industrial power - but that Americans are soft and decadent, that they cannot and will not unite and work and fight ... Let them tell that to the Marines! - Author: Franklin D. Roosevelt
Coneys Marine quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt

Coneys Marine quotes by Marine Le Pen
