Quote Left The best way to get a bad law repealed is to enforce it strictly. Quote Right
Quote Left I could have spoken from Rhode Island where I have been staying ... But I felt that, in speaking from the house of Lincoln, of Jackson, and of Wilson, my words would better convey both the sadness I feel in the action I was compelled today to make and the firmness with which I intend to pursue this course until the orders of the federal court at Little Rock can be executed without unlawful interference. (On sending troops to enforce integration in Little Rock AR High School) Quote Right
Quote Left Men are rewarded for learning the practice of violence in virtually any sphere of activity by money, admiration, recognition, respect, and the genuflection of others honoring their sacred and proven masculinity. In male culture, police are heroic and so are outlaws; males who enforce standards are heroic and so are those who violate them. Quote Right
Quote Left I solemnly swear to be a good knight of the Round Table of Camelot and to never use violence without purpose, never to fall to murder or treason.

This oath I take upon my knighthood in the Round Table of Camelot. Quote Right

Quote Left Justice Marshall has made his decision. Let him enforce it. Quote Right
Quote Left Laws can embody standards; governments can enforce laws--but the final task is not a task for government. It is a task for each and every one of us. Every time we turn our heads the other way when we see the law flouted--when we tolerate what we know to be wrong--when we close our eyes and ears to the corrupt because we are too busy, or too frightened--when we fail to speak up and speak out--we strike a blow against freedom and decency and justice. Quote Right
Quote Left Another source of power in government is a military force. But this, to be efficient, must be superior to any force that exists among the people, or which they can command; for otherwise this force would be annihilated, on the first exercise of acts of oppression. Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealous will instantly inspire the inclination to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive... Quote Right
Quote Left All human progress, even in morals, has been the work of men who have doubted the current moral values, not of men who have whooped them up and tried to enforce them. Quote Right

Quote Left Somebody figured it out -- we have 35 million laws trying to enforce Ten Commandments. Quote Right

Quote Left The idea that divorced men should pay for the children and the mother should nurture the children is the most sexist and unconstitutional idea enforced every day in American Family Courts. Fathers and mothers should be equals, which is better for the children too. Quote Right
Quote Left Usually the darkest corners Where judging monsters hide Are in the buildings with a cross on top And righteous enforcers within. They piously talk about God, But mostly they point out the cobwebs In the corners of your life, Left when Jesus chased the spiders away. Quote Right
