Famous quotes containing the word resign:

    For in the word death
    There is nothing to grasp; nothing to catch or claim;
    Nothing to adapt the skill of the heart to, skill
    In surviving, for death it cannot survive,
    Only resign the irrecoverable keys.
    The wave falters and drowns. The coulter of joy
    Breaks. The harrow of death
    Depends. And there are thrown up waves.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    For when we must resign our vital breath,
    Our Loves by Fate benighted,
    We by this friendship shall survive in death,
    Even in divorce united.
    Weak Love through fortune or distrust
    In time forgets to burn,
    But this pursues us to the Urn,
    And marries either’s Dust.
    Thomas Stanley (1625–1678)

    Give up the feeling of responsibility, let go your hold, resign the care of your destiny to higher powers, be genuinely indifferent as to what becomes of it all and you will find not only that you gain a perfect inward relief, but often also, in addition, the particular goods you sincerely thought you were renouncing.
    William James (1842–1910)
