Famous quotes containing the word bound:

    I am bound to tell what I am told, but not in every case to believe it.
    Herodotus (c. 484–424 B.C.)

    Affection, indulgence, and humor alike are powerless against the instinct of children to rebel. It is essential to their minds and their wills as exercise is to their bodies. If they have no reasons, they will invent them, like nations bound on war. It is hard to imagine families limp enough always to be at peace. Wherever there is character there will be conflict. The best that children and parents can hope for is that the wounds of their conflict may not be too deep or too lasting.
    —New York State Division of Youth Newsletter (20th century)

    Aunt,
    you know that Tree of Love,
    its roots bound in long affection
    and tended with respect?
    No one heard it falling.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)
