Famous quotes containing the word pledge:

    Resolved, There can never be a true peace in this Republic until the civil and political rights of all citizens of African descent and all women are practically established. Resolved, that the women of the Revolution were not wanting in heroism and self-sacrifice, and we, their daughters, are ready, in this War, to pledge our time, our means, our talents, and our lives, if need be, to secure the final and complete consecration of America to freedom.
    Woman’s Loyal League (founded May 1861)

    Taking the pledge will not make bad liquor good, but it will improve it.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
