Famous quotes containing the word tie:

    Let not the tie be mercenary, though the service is measured in money. Make yourself necessary to somebody. Do not make life hard to any.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Helpless and overwrought,
    she would fasten
    the rope-noose about the beam
    above her bride-couch
    and tie it to her white throat....
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    Despotism may govern without faith, but liberty cannot.... How is it possible that society should escape destruction if the moral tie is not strengthened in proportion as the political tie is relaxed? And what can be done with a people who are their own masters if they are not submissive to the Deity?
    Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–1859)
