[ Also see Debt Forgetfulness Futurity Hope Intention Oaths Obligation Quarrels Resolution Swearing Threats Vows Words ]

Every promise Ss built upon four pillars: God's justice or holiness, which will not suffer Him to deceive; His grace or goodness, which will not suffer Him to forget; His truth, which will not suffer Him to change; and His power, which makes Him able to accomplish.
      - Samuel Salter

I do know when the blood burns, how prodigal the soul lends the tongue vows.
      - William Shakespeare

Thy promises are like Adonis' garden,
  That one day bloomed and fruitful were the next.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part I
         (Charles at I, vi)

And be these juggling fiends no more believed,
  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, Macbeth
         (Macbeth at V, viii)

His promises were, as he then was, mighty;
  But his performance, as he is now, nothing.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Katherine Dowager at IV, ii)

He who promiseth runs in debt.
      - The Talmud

I had rather do and not promise, than promise and not do.
      - Arthur Warwick

I will forethink what I will promise, that I may promise but what I will do.
      - Arthur Warwick

There buds the promise of celestial worth.
      - Edward Young, The Last Day
         (bk. III, l. 317)

Liberal of cruelty are those who pamper with promises; promisers destroy while they deceive, and the hope they raise is dearly purchased by the dependence that is sequent to disappointment.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
