Patton Artillery quotes by Miguel De Cervantes
#14. Roddy the assistant manager lived in the theater. He'd emptied out one of the supply closets. He'd installed an inflatable mattress, a Shower Anywhere portable shower, and a wee television. He slept amid the powdered-butter fumes and empty drink-syrup tanks. He had grub-white skin and Goth circles under his eyes that, unlike those of Goths, came from really, truly existing half in the world of the dead. He smelled like carpeting, Scotch tape, and steak sauce. He was almost forty but had one of those half mustaches that thirteen-year-olds have. He was the closest thing to a zombie I've yet encountered in this world. - Author: Patton Oswalt

Patton Artillery quotes by George S. Patton
#23. We were surprised, shocked really, to discover the type of leadership required for turning a good company into a great one. Compared to high-profile leaders with big personalities who make headlines and become celebrities, the good-to-great leaders seem to have come from Mars. Self-effacing, quiet, reserved, even shy - these leaders are a paradoxical blend of personal humility and professional will. They are more like Lincoln and Socrates than Patton or Caesar. - Author: Jim Collins
Patton Artillery quotes by Jim Collins

Patton Artillery quotes by George S. Patton
#28. To-day we live so cowed under the bombardment of this intellectual artillery(the media) that hardly anyone can attain to the inward detachment that is required for a clear view of the monstrous drama. The will-to-power operating under a pure democratic disguise has finished off its masterpiece so well that the object's sense of freedom is actually flattered by the most thorough-going enslavement that has ever existed - Author: Oswald Spengler
Patton Artillery quotes by Oswald Spengler
#29. It's something we do every week. Every week kind of has bigger name headliners. It's all just our taste. There's a lot of people like Ian Edwards or Dan Mintz who a lot of people haven't heard of yet, but we know are really great. When we started the show five years ago it wasn't because Patton Oswalt needs another place to play. It was because we had a lot of new friends like BJ Novak or Morgan Murphy, who didn't have any club to play. - Author: B. J. Porter
Patton Artillery quotes by B. J. Porter

Patton Artillery quotes by Charles B. Rangel
#32. Sprocket fiend is the name I have for the subterranean dimension to my film addiction. The subtle, beneath-the-sound-track sound of the clattering projector in those old rep theaters, especially the New Beverly. The defiant, twenty-four-frames-per-second mechanical heartbeat that says, at least for the duration of whatever movie you're watching, the world's time doesn't apply to you. You're safe in whatever chronal flow the director chooses to take you through. Real time, or a span of months or years, or backward and forward through a life. You are given the space of a film to steal time. And the projector is your only clock. And the need for that subtle, clicking sprocket time makes you - made me - a sprocket fiend. - Author: Patton Oswalt
Patton Artillery quotes by Patton Oswalt
#33. All glory is fleeting. - Author: George S. Patton
Patton Artillery quotes by George S. Patton
#34. Artillery is more essential to cavalry than to infantry, because cavalry has no fire for its defence, but depends on the sabre. - Author: Napoleon Bonaparte
Patton Artillery quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#35. The song is based on a lot of observation and a lot of speculation. But in sort of a pointed way its kind of about Madonna ... I think it was a particular time where I was being bombarded with her image on TV and in magazines and her whole schtick kind of speaks to me in that way ... like she's going through some sort of problem. It seems she's getting a bit desperate. - Author: Mike Patton
Patton Artillery quotes by Mike Patton

#37. In his writings, Patton was shameless about his ambition to woo Lena to be his bride. He detailed the gradual progress he made, playing music for her on his violin, writing her poems, beguiling her with stories, engaging her in conversation. It was clear that he obsessed over her. He knew what he wanted and never relented until she was his. - Author: Brandon Mull
Patton Artillery quotes by Brandon Mull
#38. If you tell people where to go, but not how to get there, you'll be amazed at the results. - Author: George S. Patton
Patton Artillery quotes by George S. Patton
#39. No matter what the cause, even though it be to conquer with tanks and planes and modern artillery some defenseless black population, there will be no lack of poets and preachers and essayists and philosophers to invent the necessary reasons and gild the infamy with righteousness. To this righteousness there is, of course, never an adequate reply. Thus a war to end poverty becomes an unanswerable enterprise. For who can decently be for poverty? To even debate whether the war will end poverty becomes an exhibition of ugly pragmatism and the sign of an ignoble mind. - Author: John T. Flynn
Patton Artillery quotes by John T. Flynn
#40. The moral effect of the thundering of one's own artillery is most extraordinary, and many of us thought that we had never heard any more welcome sound than the deep roaring and crashing that started in at our rear. - Author: Fritz Kreisler
Patton Artillery quotes by Fritz Kreisler
#41. Untutored courage is useless in the face of educated bullets. - Author: George S. Patton

Patton Artillery quotes by George S. Patton
#44. In a battle, as in a siege, the art consists in concentrating very heavy fire on a particular point. The line of battle once established, the one who has the ability to concentrate an
unlooked for mass of artillery suddenly and unexpectedly on one of these points is sure to carry the day. - Author: Napoleon Bonaparte
Patton Artillery quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#45. Everything we have today that's cool comes from someone wanting more of something they loved in the past. Action figures, videogames, superhero movies, iPods: All are continuations of a love that wanted more. - Author: Patton Oswalt
Patton Artillery quotes by Patton Oswalt
#46. Just drive down that road until you get blown up. - Author: George S. Patton Jr.
