Famous quotes containing the words pay and/or police:
“I make it a kind of pious rule to go to every funeral to which I am invited, both as I wish to pay a proper respect to the dead, unless their characters have been bad, and as I would wish to have the funeral of my own near relations or of myself well attended.”
—James Boswell (17401795)
“The duties which a police officer owes to the state are of a most exacting nature.

To join in that high enterprise means the surrender of much individual freedom.”
—Calvin Coolidge (18721933)
