Famous quotes containing the word enforce:

    Do not enforce the tired wolf
    Dragging his infected wound homeward
    To sit tonight with the warm children
    Naming the pretty kings of France.
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)

    It is so manifestly incompatible with those precautions for our peace and safety, which all the great powers habitually observe and enforce in matters affecting them, that a shorter water way between our eastern and western seaboards should be dominated by any European government, that we may confidently expect that such a purpose will not be entertained by any friendly power.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)

    Will you enforce me to a world of cares?
    Call them again, I am not made of stones,
    But penetrable to your kind entreaties,
    Albeit against my conscience and my soul.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
