It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.
I pray that I am never so foolishly naive or roguishly pompous to think that I can be the captain of my own ship, for if God is not at the helm my ship will soon be at the bottom.
The perfect being, huh? There is no such thing as perfect in this world. That may sound cliché, but it’s the truth. The average person admires perfection and seeks to obtain it. But, what’s the point of achieving perfection? There is none. Nothing. Not a single thing. I loathe perfection! If something is perfect, then there is nothing left. There is no room for imagination. No place left for a person to gain additional knowledge or abilities. Do you know what that means? For scientists such as ourselves, perfection only brings despair. It is our job to create things more wonderful than anything before them, but never to obtain perfection. A scientist must be a person who finds ecstasy while suffering from that antimony. In short, the moment that foolishness left your mouth and reached my ears, you had already lost. Of course, that’s assuming you are a scientist
I'd come out of the army after five years as a medic. I was a medical administrator and we ran hospitals, and I was a Captain in the army at the end, in 1945.
The Eagles and the Captain and Tennille ruled the airwaves, and we were the answer to it.
I wanted to be Stan Laurel, then I wanted to be Fred Astaire and then Captain Kangaroo. I actually started out as a radio announcer when I was 17 and never left the business, so that's literally 70 years.
To be mentioned as a Test captain was a big surprise.
I would love to get bumped up to be team captain, or even Asuka. Either-or. We can even be co-captains.
Science is the captain, and practice the soldiers.
If the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he would keep it in port forever.
I was once the captain of Akagi, and it is with heartfelt regret that I must now order that she be sunk.
It is in following Christ as our captain that we can win in our personal lives, families, churches, and communities.
The 'Next Generation' and 'Voyager' are about even; I think 'Voyager' is mildly superior, although Picard is the quintessential captain.
My hero in comic books is Jack Kirby: 'Spider-Man,' 'Fantastic Four,' 'Captain America,' Marvel Comics. He was really the basis for Marvel Comics.
'Captain America: First Avenger' is very much a Joe Johnston film.
I like Captain America because I liked Captain America when I was younger.
I very rarely saw Tom Kite around. I've talked to Tom about it. I don't think Michael Jordan needed to be on the captain's cart with Kite; he needed to be walking in the gallery, supporting them from outside the ropes.
I guess that compared to other comic strips, I'm edgy. But put me along something like 'South Park,' and I'm 'Captain Kangaroo.'
In 1975, I went to the Dominican Republic for eight months during the shooting of a film based on my novel 'Captain Pantoja and the Special Service.' It was during this period I heard and read about Trujillo.
The big upside to being captain is it's a huge honour, but the downside is that there is definitely extra pressure.
