Famous quotes containing the word discharge:

    Gratitude among friends is like credit among tradesmen: it keeps business up, and maintains commerce. And we pay not because it is just to discharge our debts, but that we might the more easily find lenders on another occasion.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    “Weren’t you relieved to find he wasn’t dead?”
    “No! and yet I don’t know it’s hard to say.
    I went about to kill him fair enough.”
    “You took an awkward way. Did he discharge you?”
    Discharge me? No! He knew I did just right.”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    It is wonderful when a calculation is made, how little the mind is actually employed in the discharge of any profession.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
