I had rather have a plain, russet-coated Captain, that knows what he fights for, and loves what he knows, than that which you call a Gentle-man and is nothing else.
Oliver Cromwell

Other quotes by Oliver Cromwell

God made them as stubble to our swords.

I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible you may be mistaken.

Subtlety may deceive you; integrity never will.

A few honest men are better than numbers.

Put your trust in God; but be sure to keep your powder dry.
