Bond

Famous quotes containing the word bond:

    Wedding is great Juno’s crown,
    O blessed bond of board and bed!
    ‘Tis Hymen peoples every town,
    High wedlock then be honorèd.
    Honor, high honor, and renown
    To Hymen, god of every town!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    When the bond of love broke,
    the respect born of affection withered,
    good feelings fled,
    and that man walked before me
    like any other,
    Good Friend,
    I imagine all this,
    think on days gone by
    and wonder why
    my heart hasn’t cracked
    into a hundred bits.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    Every doctor will allow a colleague to decimate a whole countryside sooner than violate the bond of professional etiquet by giving him away.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
