Famous quotes containing the words government and/or act:

    Consider the islands bearing the names of all the saints, bristling with forts like chestnut-burs, or Echinidæ, yet the police will not let a couple of Irishmen have a private sparring- match on one of them, as it is a government monopoly; all the great seaports are in a boxing attitude, and you must sail prudently between two tiers of stony knuckles before you come to feel the warmth of their breasts.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    ‘Tis much he dares,
    And to that dauntless temper of his mind,
    He hath a wisdom that doth guide his valor
    To act in safety.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
