Famous quotes containing the word charged:

    The last alternatives they face
    Of face, without the life to save,
    Being from all salvation weaned
    A stag charged both at heel and head:
    Who would come back is turned a fiend
    Instructed by the fiery dead.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    True and false are attributes of speech not of things. And where speech is not, there is neither truth nor falsehood. Error there may be, as when we expect that which shall not be; or suspect what has not been: but in neither case can a man be charged with untruth.
    Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679)

    I would I could
    Quit all offences with as clear excuse
    As well as I am doubtless I can purge
    Myself of many I am charged withal.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
