Famous quotes containing the word forced:

    So shall you hear
    Of carnal, bloody, and unnatural acts,
    Of accidental judgments, casual slaughters,
    Of deaths put on by cunning and forced cause,
    And in this upshot, purposes mistook
    Fallen on th’inventors’ heads.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
