Famous quotes containing the word agreement:

    A marriage based on full confidence, based on complete and unqualified frankness on both sides; they are not keeping anything back; there’s no deception underneath it all. If I might so put it, it’s an agreement for the mutual forgiveness of sin.
    Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906)
