Famous quotes containing the words armed and/or forces:

    Inflation is as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber and as deadly as a hit man.
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)

    Ah! how much a mother learns from her child! The constant protection of a helpless being forces us to so strict an alliance with virtue, that a woman never shows to full advantage except as a mother. Then alone can her character expand in the fulfillment of all life’s duties and the enjoyment of all its pleasures.
    HonorĂ© De Balzac (1799–1850)
