Famous quotes containing the word charge:

    I do the wrong, and first begin to brawl.
    The secret mischiefs that I set abroach
    I lay unto the grievous charge of others.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I have never doubted your courage and devotion to the cause. But you have just lost a Division, and prima facie the fault is upon you; and while that remains unchanged, for me to put you in command again, is to justly subject me to the charge of having put you there on purpose to have you lose another.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    Yet I would bear my shortcomings
    With meet tranquility,
    But for the charge that blessed things
    I’d liefer not have be.
    O, doth a bird deprived of wings
    Go earth-bound wilfully!
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)
