Famous quotes containing the word purchase:

    We are told to maintain constitutions because they are constitutions, and what is laid down in those constitutions?... Certain great fundamental ideas of right are common to the world, and ... all laws of man’s making which trample on these ideas, are null and void—wrong to obey, right to disobey. The Constitution of the United States recognizes human slavery; and makes the souls of men articles of purchase and of sale.
    Anna Elizabeth Dickinson (1842–1932)

    O, let us have him, for his silver hairs
    Will purchase us a good opinion,
    And buy men’s voices to commend our deeds.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    When thou, poor Excommunicate
    From all the joys of love, shalt see
    The full reward and glorious fate
    Which my strong faith shall purchase me,
    Then curse thine own inconstancy!
    Thomas Carew (1589–1639)
