My attitude toward punctuation is that it ought to be as conventional as possible. The game of golf would lose a good deal if croquet mallets and billiard cues were allowed on the putting green. You ought to be able to show that you can do it a good deal better than anyone else with the regular tools before you have a license to bring in your own improvements.
Linux is not in the public domain. Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches. That's the way that the License works.steve ballmer
License my roving hands, and let them go Before, behind, between, above, below. O my America! my new-found-land, My kingdom, safeliest when with one man manned.john donne

License they mean when they cry, Liberty! For who loves that must first be wise and good.john milton
The Poet's License! 't is the right, Within the rule of duty, To look on all delightful things Throughout the world of beauty. To gaze with rapture at the stars That in the skies are glowing; To see the gems of perfect dye That in the woods are growing, And more than sage astronomer, And more than learned florist, To read the glorious homilies Of Firmament and Forest.john godfrey saxe
A thousand pardons. Assault and battery not permitted without License from boxing comission.charlie chan
Erasmus dramatizes a well-established political position: that of the fool who claims License to criticize all and sundry without reprisal, since his madness defines him as not fully a person and therefore not a political being with political desires and ambitions. The Praise of Folly, therefore sketches the possibility of a position for the critic of the scene of political rivalry, a position not simply impartial between the rivals but also, by self-definition, off the stage of rivalry altogether.j. m. coetzee
At the first of the 1960's Rochester Coherence Conferences, I suggested that a License be required for use of the word photon, and offered to give such License to properly qualified people.willis lamb
(Insert Goaltender here) just lost his liquor License.mike lange
Riding through the city on my bike all day Cause the filth took away my License It doesn't get me down and I feel OK Cause the sights that I'm seeing are priceless Everything seems to look as it should But I wonder what goes on behind doors A fella looking dapper, but he's sitting with a slapper Then I see it's a pimp and his crack whore.lily allen
" many seemingly independent businessmen or craftsman are more or less well paid retainers of larger corporations, such as the cobbler, operating a United States shoe machine or an automobile dealer holding a License of the General Motors Corporation."paul a. baran
No prime-minister in the parliament of letters has, at any time, ventured to introduce a bill for the apprehension of all vagrant inverted commas that may be found trespassing in the sunny places of argument; and to restrain the poaching propensities of authors in general, who are apt to stroll without a License into the manors of other men's genius.samuel laman blanchard
I never really drove a cab, but I do have a hack License in case of emergencies – like no money.harry chapin
A License cannot be revoked because a man is redheaded or because he was divorced, except for a calling, if such there be, for which redheadedness or an unbroken marriage may have some rational bearing. If a State licensing agency lays bare its arbitrary action, or if the State law explicitly allows it to act arbitrarily, that is precisely the kind of State action which the Due Process Clause forbids.felix frankfurter
One of the annoying things about believing in free will and individual responsibility is the difficulty of finding somebody to blame your problems on. And when you do find somebody, it's remarkable how often his picture turns up on your driver's License.P. J. O'Rourke
What has happened to us? It seems as if we have perverted our freedom, our rights into License, into being irresponsible. Perhaps we did not realise just how apartheid has damaged us so that we seem to have lost our sense of right and wrong.desmond tutu
A society like the Church, which claims to be Divine is perhaps more dangerous on account of the ersatz good which it contains then on account of the evil which sullies it. Something of the social labelled divine: an intoxicating mixture which carries with it every sort of License. Devil disguised.Simone Weil
It might be said with a certain metaphoric License that languages are seldom admired to death but are frequently despised to death.
None can love freedom heartily, but good men; the rest love not freedom, but License.john milton
The most fundamental liberal failure of the current era: the failure to embrace a moral vision of America based on the transcendent faith that human beings are more than the sum of their material appetites, our country is more than an economic machine , and freedom is not License but responsibility .
A drug is not bad. A drug is a chemical compound. The problem comes in when people who take drugs treat them like a License to behave like an asshole.
Anarchism says, Make no laws whatever concerning speech, and speech will be free; so soon as you make a declaration on paper that speech shall be free, you will have a hundred lawyers proving that "freedom does not mean abuse, nor liberty License"; and they will define and define freedom out of existence. Let the guarantee of free speech be in every man's determination to use it, and we shall have no need of paper declarations.
The freedom of poetic License.
