Famous quotes containing the word enactment:

    I wish to say that, in so far as I can, I hope to promote the enactment of further legislation of this character.
    There’s nothing else one can say about me—I’m superfluous, in a word. A supernumerary—that’s all. Nature evidently didn’t count on my appearance, and consequently treated me as an unexpected, uninvited guest.
    Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (1818–1883)
