PROMISES

Promises are like babies: easy to make, hard to deliver. ~Author Unknown

Promises are the uniquely human way of ordering the future, making it predictable and reliable to the extent that this is humanly possible. ~Hannah Arendt

Half the promises people say were never kept, were never made. ~Edgar Watson Howe

And be these juggling friends no more believ'd,
That palter with us in a double sense;
That keep the word of promise to our ear
And break it to our hope.
~William Shakespeare

We promise according to our hopes, and perform according to our fears. ~Francois duc de la Rochefoucauld

Promise only what you can deliver. Then deliver more than you promise. ~Author Unknown

To promise not to do a thing is the surest way in the world to make a body want to go and do that very thing. ~Mark Twain, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, 1876

I never make a promise I cannot keep, and have yet to have someone keep their promise with me.

    Promises I hear often -

    Can I borrow some money? I promise I'll pay it back as soon as I can!
