Why should we not boycott the Soviet Union and its supporters inside the country? If we do so, we can Force them to review their stand. Either they give us what we want and what is necessary or they will lose our friendship.hafez al-assad
Constantine declared his own will equivalent to a canon of the Church. According to Justinian, the Roman people had formally transferred to the emperors the entire plenitude of its authority, and, therefore, the emperor’s pleasure, expressed by edict or by letter, had Force of law. Even in the fervent age of its conversion the empire employed its refined civilization, the accumulated wisdom of ancient sages, the reasonableness and subtlety of Roman law, and the entire inheritance of the Jewish, the pagan, and the Christian world, to make the Church serve as a gilded crutch of absolutism.Dalberg-Acton, John, 1st Baron Acton
Even when the pioneer didn't rape Nature, he divorced her a little too easily: he missed the great lesson that both ecology and medicine teach - that Man's great mission is not to conquer nature by main Force but to cooperate with her intelligently but lovingly for his own purposes.
Force is all-conquering, but its victories are short-lived.Abraham Lincoln
How true it is, that there isnothing dead inthis Universe; that what we call dead is only changed, its forces working in inverse order! 'The leaf that lies rotting in moist winds,'says one,'has still Force; else how could it rot?'thomas carlyle
Television has changed the American child from an irresistible Force into an immovable object.Laurence J. Peter
English Translation: We need to renegotiate our contract with nature. Ecology is a unifying Force that can diminish intolerance and expand our empathy towards others—both human and animal.gregory colbert
"The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. It may be frail—its roof may shake—the wind may blow through it—the storm may enter—the rain may enter—but the King of England cannot enter—all his Force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement." So be it—unless he has justification by law.denning, alfred, baron denning
It awes by the majesty of its truths, it agitates by the Force of its compunctions, it penetrates the heart by the tenderness of its appeals, and it casts over the abyss of thought, the shadow of its eternal grandeur.henry giles
It is now necessary to face the truth and to acknowledge against all prejudices that the struggle that the Albanian tribe is leading today is a natural and unavoidable historic struggle for a different political life than that experienced under Turkish rule – different also from that which its neighbours Serbia, Greece and Montenegro would like to Force upon the Albanians.dimitrije tucović
You cannot Force ideas . Successful ideas are the result of slow growth. Ideas do not reach perfection in a day, no matter how much study is put upon them.alexander graham bell
Capitalism is an organized system to guarantee that greed becomes the primary Force of our economic system and allows the few at the top to get very wealthy and has the rest of us riding around thinking we can be that way, too - if we just work hard enough, sell enough Tupperware and Amway products, we can get a pink Cadillac.Michael Moore
Portugal converted a portion of India to the Catholic religion with the arms of her soldiers, with the blood of her martyrs, with the miracles of her saints, and with the fires of her Inquisition. Those who were vanquished in this struggle became Christians and Portuguese. England might imitate the example, except as regards Force.francisco luís gomes
What is it in man that for a long while lies unknown and unseen only one day to emerge and push him into a new land of the eye, a new region of the mind, a place he has never dreamed of? Maybe it's like the Force in spores lying quietly under asphalt until the day they push a soft, bulbous mushroom head right through the pavement. There's nothing you can do to stop it.william least heat-moon
Conceit is the finest armor that a man can wear. Upon its smooth, impenetrable surface the puny dagger-thrusts of spite and envy glance harmlessly aside. Without that breast-plate the sword of talent cannot Force its way through the battle of life, for blows have to be borne as well as dealt.jerome k. jerome
Let but the public mind become once thoroughly corrupt, and all attempts to secure property, liberty or life, by mere Force of laws written on parchment, will be as vain as to put up printed notices in an orchard to keep off the canker-worms.horace mann
The trouble with Islam is deeply rooted in its teachings. Islam is not only a religion. Islam (is) also a political ideology that preaches violence and applies its agenda by Force.wafa sultan
Powell repressed the wave of exasperation that rose up in him. It was not exasperation with Chooka. It was anger for the relentless Force of evolution that insisted on endowing man with increased powers without removing the vestigial vices that prevented him from using them.alfred bester
States should practice multilateralism and abandon unilateral actions that adversely affect a democratic and equitable international order, refraining from the threat or use of Force. They should apply international law uniformly, abandon overreliance on “positivism” and efforts to circumvent treaty obligations or invent loopholes. As “nature abhors a vacuum” (Spinoza, Ethics), human rights law abhors “legal black holes”
The age-long history of thinking on gravitation, too, was erased from the collective consciousness, and that Force somehow became the serendipitous child of Newton's genius. The new attitude is well illustrated by the anecdote of the apple, a legend spread by Voltaire, one of the most active and vehement erasers of the past. … The need to build the myth of an ex nihilo creation of modern science gave rise to much impassioned rhetoric.lucio russo
What is it in man that for a long while lies unknown and unseen only one day to emerge and push him into a new land of the eye, a new region of the mind, a place he has never dreamed of?

The recruit must be carefully and sedulously taught when meeting the enemy, even at a trot or canter, to use no Force whatever, otherwise his sword will bury itself to the hilt, and the swordsman will either be dragged from his horse, or will be compelled to drop his weapon if he can.
