What’s the actual wording? “A man’s got to know his limitations”

Sentimental as Anything

Do you remember the line from the old Dirty Harry movie about a man knowing his limitations?

a good man knows his limitations

I’ve had discussions with lots of mates about what the actual words are.

Is it “a good man” or “a man”?

Is it: “always knows his limitations” or “man’s got to know his limitations”?


Anyway, being a real “pop culture nerd”  and “movie line nerd” I’ve researched this  – just in case you ever need to debate what the real words are.

The line is from the 1973 movie Magnum Force where Dirty Harry takes on vigilante cops.

His boss tries to keep him off the case – and regards Harry as a risk to society and a risk to proper police and justice procedure.

He tells Harry that he (the boss) has never had to take his gun out of his holster.

Harry replies with an insult wrapped inside a compliment.
