Famous quotes containing the word breach:

    Good manners, to those one does not love, are no more a breach of truth, than “your humble servant,” at the bottom of a challenge is; they are universally agreed upon, and understand to be things of course. They are necessary guards of the decency and peace of society.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Moral laws are set as a curb and restraint to these exorbitant desires, which they cannot be but by rewards and punishments, that will over-balance the satisfaction any one shall propose to himself in the breach of the law.
    John Locke (1632–1704)

    But to my mind, though I am native here
    And to the manner born, it is a custom
    More honored in the breach than the observance.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
