On promising

   A promise delayed is justice deferred. 

   A promise attended to is a debt settled. 

   A promise neglected is an untruth told.

   Things promised are things due. 

   A promise is a debt that we may not forget. 

   A promise should be given with caution and kept with care.

   Promises make debts and debts promises.

   I had rather do and not promise, than promise and not do. 

                                              A. Warwick 

   He who is most slow in making a promise is the most faithful in 
   its performance. 


   An acre of performance is worth the whole world of promise. 


   A mind conscious of integrity scorns to say more than it means 
   to perform. 

   In religion, not to do as thou sayest, is to unsay thy religion 
   in thy deeds, and to undo thyself by doing.
