Famous quotes containing the word warrant:

    Sir Andrew Aguecheek. Here’s the challenge, read it. I warrant there’s vinegar and pepper in’t.
    Fabian. Is’t so saucy?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Sometimes, when I compare myself with other men, it seems as if I were more favored by the gods than they, beyond any deserts that I am conscious of; as if I had a warrant and surety at their hands which my fellows have not, and were especially guided and guarded. I do not flatter myself, but if it be possible they flatter me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Here’s to the maiden of bashful fifteen;
    Here’s to the widow of fifty;
    Here’s to the flaunting extravagant queen;
    And here’s to the housewife that’s thrifty.
    Let the toast pass,—
    Drink to the lass,
    I’ll warrant she’ll prove an excuse for the glass.
    Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751–1816)
