A vow (Lat. votum, vow, promise; see vote) is a promise or oath.
Famous quotes containing the word vow:
“There is but one love of Jesus, as there is but one person in the poorJesus. We take vows of chastity to love Christ with undivided love; to be able to love him with undivided love we take a vow of poverty which frees us from all material possessions, and with that freedom we can love him with undivided love, and from this vow of undivided love we surrender ourselves totally to him in the person who takes his place.”
—Mother Teresa (b. 1910)
“Love is free; to promise for ever to love the same woman is not less absurd than to promise to believe the same creed; such a vow in both cases excludes us from all inquiry.”
—Percy Bysshe Shelley (17921822)
“If you make a vow to the LORD your God, do not postpone fulfilling it; for the LORD your God will surely require it of you, and you would incur guilt.”
—Bible: Hebrew, Deuteronomy 23:21.
