What is charge?

Famous quotes containing the word charge:

    To fight aloud is very brave,
    But gallanter I know,
    Who charge within the bosom
    The Cavalry of Woe.
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    I charge thee, Satan, housed within this man,
    To yield possession to my holy prayers.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Those things for which the most money is demanded are never the things which the student most wants. Tuition, for instance, is an important item in the term bill, while for the far more valuable education which he gets by associating with the most cultivated of his contemporaries no charge is made.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
