Famous quotes containing the word dedicate:

    To whom, then, must I dedicate my wonderful, surprising and interesting adventures?—to whom dare I reveal my private opinion of my nearest relations? the secret thoughts of my dearest friends? my own hopes, fears, reflections and dislikes?—Nobody!
    Frances Burney (1752–1840)

    Let me live onward; you shall find that, though slower, the progress of my character will liquidate all these debts without injustice to higher claims. If a man should dedicate himself to the payment of notes, would not this be an injustice? Does he owe no debt but money? And are all claims on him to be postponed to a landlord’s or a banker’s?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
