Famous quotes containing the word compliance:

    Discipline isn’t just punishing, forcing compliance or stamping out bad behavior. Rather, discipline has to do with teaching proper deportment, caring about others, controlling oneself and putting someone else’s wishes before one’s own when the occasion calls for it.
    Lawrence Balter (20th century)

    In this our talking America, we are ruined by our good nature and listening on all sides. This compliance takes away the power of being greatly useful.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I am not of the opinion generally entertained in this country [England], that man lives by Greek and Latin alone; that is, by knowing a great many words of two dead languages, which nobody living knows perfectly, and which are of no use in the common intercourse of life. Useful knowledge, in my opinion, consists of modern languages, history, and geography; some Latin may be thrown into the bargain, in compliance with custom, and for closet amusement.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
