Famous quotes containing the words restraint and/or drawing:

    Nobody can deny but religion is a comfort to the distressed, a cordial to the sick, and sometimes a restraint on the wicked; therefore whoever would argue or laugh it out of the world without giving some equivalent for it ought to be treated as a common enemy.

    —Marie Collins Swabey. Comic Laughter, ch. 5, Yale University Press (1961)
