### Famous quotes containing the words law, formal and/or group:

“The end of *law* is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom. For in all the states of created beings capable of laws, where there is no *law*, there is no freedom.”

—John Locke (1632–1704)

“The manifestation of poetry in external life is *formal* perfection. True sentiment grows within, and art must represent internal phenomena externally.”

—Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

“He hung out of the window a long while looking up and down the street. The world’s second metropolis. In the brick houses and the dingy lamplight and the voices of a *group* of boys kidding and quarreling on the steps of a house opposite, in the regular firm tread of a policeman, he felt a marching like soldiers, like a sidewheeler going up the Hudson under the Palisades, like an election parade, through long streets towards something tall white full of colonnades and stately. Metropolis.”

—John Dos Passos (1896–1970)
