Famous quotes containing the word duties:

    If property had simply pleasures, we could stand it; but its duties make it unbearable. In the interest of the rich we must get rid of it.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    You have begot me, bred me, loved me. I
    Return those duties back as are right fit,
    Obey you, love you, and most honor you.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    What between the duties expected of one during one’s lifetime, and the duties exacted from one after one’s death, land has ceased to be either a profit or a pleasure. It gives one position, and prevents one from keeping it up. That’s all that can be said about land.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
