Famous quotes containing the word swear:

    Why the ghosts of poor old dead Romans should be dragged in every time a man eats an oyster, I don’t see. We’re as fine specimens as they were. I swear I shan’t let any old turned-to-clay Lucullus outlive me, even if I’ve never eaten a lamprey.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    That loving wretch that swears
    ‘Tis not the bodies marry, but the minds,
    Which he in her angelic finds,
    Would swear as justly that he hears,
    In that day’s rude hoarse minstrelsy, the spheres.
    Hope not for mind in women; at their best
    Sweetness and wit, they’re but Mummy, possessed.
    John Donne (1572–1631)
