Famous quotes containing the word grant:

    Therefore I summon age
    To grant youth’s heritage,
    Life’s struggle having so far reached its term:
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    We grant no dukedoms to the few,
    We hold like rights and shall;—
    Equal on Sunday in the pew,
    On Monday in the mall.
    For what avail the plough or sail,
    Or land or life, if freedom fail?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I know no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their stringent execution.
    —Ulysses S. Grant (1822–1885)
