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 (16131680)
“... women of the North, I ask you to rise up with earnest, honest purpose, and go forward in the way of right, fearlessly, as independent human beings, responsible to God alone for the discharge of every duty, for the faithful use of every gift, the good Father has given you. Forget conventionalisms; forget what the world will say, whether you are in your place or out of your place; think your best thoughts, speak your best words, do your best works, looking to your own conscience for approval.”
—Susan B. Anthony (18201906)
“Werent you relieved to find he wasnt dead?

You took an awkward way. Did he discharge you?
Discharge me? No! He knew I did just right.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
