Vote for the man who promises least; he'll be the least disappointing.
The promises of this world are, for the most part, vain phantoms; and to confide in one's self, and become something of worth and value is the best and safest course.
A vow is a snare for sin.
Mr. Rawlings is a man of his word. The problem was, he made two different promises and he felt honored to keep them both. He hoped that by fulfilling one, in a different than expected way, he may have the chance to rectify the other.
Go for it, while you can. I know you have it in you. And I can't promise you'll get everything you want, but I can promise nothing will change if you don't try.
Nothing weights lighter than a promise.
God she hated the dance. A blow to the cheek one minute and discussing a romantic getaway the next. It was the one step forward, two steps back waltz. She wanted to scream. Sitting on the side of the bed, Claire allowed herself tears and swallowed
She was every inch the skeletal goddess that had been promised by the bones of her feet.
Between today and tomorrow are graves, and between promising and fulfilling are chasms.
God never made a promise that was too good to be true.
Dwight L. Moody
A prince never lacks legitimate reasons to break his promise.
The promise given was a necessity of the past: the word broken is a necessity of the present.
Never take a solemn oath. People think you mean it.
I feel keeping a promise to yourself is a direct reflection of the love you have for yourself. I used to make promises to myself and find them easy to break. Today, I love myself enough to not only make a promise to myself, but I love myself enough to keep that promise
Hasty resolutions are of the nature of vows, and to be equally avoided.
Personally, I hold that a man, who deliberately and intelligently takes a pledge and then breaks it, forfeits his manhood.
Your capacity to keep your vow will depend on the purity of your life.
A vow is fixed and unalterable determination to do a thing, when such a determination is related to something noble which can only uplift the man who makes the resolve.
When a man takes an oath...,he's holding his ownself in his own hands. Like water. And if he opens his fingers then- he needn't hope to find himself again.
Promises and pie crusts are made to be broken.
