Famous quotes containing the words forces, armed and/or people:

    Example moves the world more than doctrine. The great exemplars are the poets of action, and it makes little difference whether they be forces for good or forces for evil.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)

    What man dare, I dare.
    Approach thou like the rugged Russian bear,
    The armed rhinoceros, or the Hyrcan tiger;
    Take any shape but that, and my firm nerves
    Shall never tremble. Or be alive again
    And dare me to the desert with thy sword.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Let the floods clap their hands; let the hills be joyful together.
    Before the Lord; for he cometh to judge the earth; with
    righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
    Bible: Hebrew Psalm XCVIII (l. XCVIII, 8–9)
