On this day in 1979, the world said goodbye to John Wayne. Here’s a list of 10 of the most memorable things the Duke ever said.

Born Marion Robert Morrison in Winterset, Iowa, in 1907, Wayne and his family moved to California when he was still a child. Rejected by the Naval Academy and eager to make his mark, Wayne eventually enrolled at USC where he played football.
Wayne soon landed a gig as a prop boy on Hollywood sets, where he impressed director John Ford. With his imposing frame (he stood six feet four), good looks, and lantern jaw, Wayne quickly established himself as a budding star. And box office gold.
The Duke would eventually star in more than 140 motion pictures in his Hollywood career, and he remains one of the most enduring icons of American ruggedness, individualism, and masculinity.
Wayne died of stomach cancer on June 11, 1979, in Los Angeles Calif.
A look back on ten of his greatest quotes.
