Famous quotes containing the word check:

    The veto is a President’s Constitutional right, given to him by the drafters of the Constitution because they wanted it as a check against irresponsible Congressional action. The veto forces Congress to take another look at legislation that has been passed. I think this is a responsible tool for a president of the United States, and I have sought to use it responsibly.
    Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)

    This fellow is wise enough to play the fool,
    And to do that well craves a kind of wit.
    He must observe their mood on whom he jests,
    The quality of persons, and the time,
    Not, like the haggard, check at every feather
    That comes before his eye. This is a practice
    As full of labor as a wise man’s art.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    cried as he died, fearing at last the spheres’
    Last sound, the world going out without a breath:
    Too proud to cry, too frail to check the tears,
    And caught between two nights, blindness and death.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
