Famous quotes containing the words marks and/or regulations:

    The clock runs down
    timeless and still.
    The days and nights turn hours to years
    and water in a gutter marks the circle of another world
    hating, resentful, and afraid
    stagnant, and green, and full of slimy things.
    Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)

    The admission of Oriental immigrants who cannot be amalgamated with our people has been made the subject either of prohibitory clauses in our treaties and statutes or of strict administrative regulations secured by diplomatic negotiations. I sincerely hope that we may continue to minimize the evils likely to arise from such immigration without unnecessary friction and by mutual concessions between self-respecting governments.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
