As a child I was a great liar. Fortunately my mother liked my lies. I promised her marvelous things.
Gunter Grass

Walter Kirn
The most important metrics are did we execute the way in which we said we would, and did we deliver the value to the business that we had promised?

I was the guy who makes you scrub the latrine, the guy who makes you make your bed, the guy who screams at you for being late to work. The job requires you to be a mean, tough person.

Elias Hicks
Anyone, without exception, can know God if they really want to simply by praying, by honestly telling Him that they want to know Him. He always responds to honest seekers. Jesus promised, ‘All who seek, find.’
Peter Kreeft
If you want to fight, this is what’s promised to you. If you agree to it, then I don’t feel like you have the right to go back and say, ‘They’re not paying me that much.’ You agreed to it. This is your job. I think that some guys may forget about that a little bit.
Travis Browne

Vernon Davis
Tell your kids you love them as much as you possibly can, because you’re not promised one second to the next.

Now, Rahul Gandhi has offered Rs 72,000 per annum scheme to every poor person in India. It is a miracle scheme. While Modi failed to give Rs 15 lakh he promised to every poor person, Congress will fulfil its promise as it did earlier. That is why Rahul Gandhi is hero while Modi is zero.
We were promised we could keep our healthcare plans. We were promised that Obamacare would not raise middle class taxes. Instead, the law brought the American people rising premiums, unaffordable deductibles, fewer insurance choices, and higher taxes. We were let down.

Dani Alves
I’m a person who likes to live in the moment because yesterday’s gone and tomorrow is promised to nobody.
Shirley Ballas
If you look at why many Kentuckians voted for President Trump, for example, they voted for an outsider. They voted for somebody who was gonna shake up the system. He promised to drain the swamp. And, you know, my message is you can’t do that until you get rid of Senator McConnell.
Amy McGrath
The Bolivian government has promised to guarantee autonomy in the framework of unity, legality, and with the goal of equalizing the different regions of Bolivia. It’s right there in the constitution.

After the death of the sadistic dictator Gen. Sanni Abacha in 1998, Nigeria underwent a one-year transitional military administration headed by Gen.

Wole Soyinka
I have always promised myself and my wife that when I don’t enjoy it anymore, or I can’t handle the stress and the pressure that comes with having such a high-profile and top job – or my energy levels starts to fail me, or my enthusiasm starts to be dented – I won’t prolong my career longer than I feel I should.
Roy Hodgson

Given that the reality of Brexit has turned out to be so far from what was once promised, the democratic thing to do is to give the public the final say.

Lee Ann Womack

Prashant Bhushan
The president has promised greater border security. We can agree to that. A literal wall might not be the most effective means to that end, but we can provide the resources necessary to secure the border with smart and affordable measures.

Mariano Rajoy
Airline glamour never promised anything as mundane as elbow room, much less a flat bed, a massage, or an arugula salad. It promised a better world. Service and dress reflected the more formal era, but no one expected air travel to be comfortable. It was amazing just to have hot food above the clouds.
Virginia Postrel
‘Back To Love’ is a way of letting people know that sometimes you get caught up in trying to be successful in school or in your social life, and it’s a reminder not to forget that each day people are getting older. Nobody is promised tomorrow, so we should make sure that we spend quality time with quality people.
Anthony Hamilton
Brexit and Trump had upended the fundamental establishment viewpoint that politics was aspirational, that good politics promised progress, generational betterment and ever-expanding world reach.
Michael Wolff
I don’t believe that all folks who supported Donald Trump are racist. I think that there was a lot of economic anxiety, there was a lot of economic panic. A lot of deep-rooted economic insecurity. I think what Trump did, you know, very astutely, was he tapped into this vein, and he promised them a job.
Kevin de Leon
There’s not one person in this state who believes they are going to have a job in my administration… There’s not one person who I’ve promised anything to.

Congress should stop treating veterans like they’re asking for a hand out when it comes to the benefits they were promised, and they should realize that, were it not for these veterans, there would be nothing to hand out.
Nick Lampson
I love an arcade. I love a boardwalk game. But I also love a rollercoaster. Though I think the rollercoaster love comes from the fact that it took a really long time for me to reach the height requirement, so I promised myself very early on that when I reach that, I will not take it for granted.
Melissa Rauch
There was a Yugoslav film about partisans that I’ve done the music for, and then I’ve promised to score a French film called ‘Biribi’ about detention camps at the turn of the century.
Mikis Theodorakis
At my aunt’s funeral, I promised myself that I wouldn’t be bound by the belief that I’m supposed to stay in anything – whether it’s a relationship, a job, a house, or a circumstance – if it makes me miserable. She gave me the courage to find my own happiness.
Jill Scott
What we need is some people to stand up with the courage of their convictions, to do what they promised when they ran for election, and fight to stop Obamacare.

What I found in my research on Trump’s charitable giving was that often he would promise something and then never deliver, but sort of go around with people believing he’d done this thing he’s promised.
David Fahrenthold
I promised my dad before he passed away that I would take care of the family.
Luis Coronel
Tomorrow’s not promised so you’ve really got to take advantage of what you have in the present.
Diana Taurasi
The Brown decision promised that every child, regardless of the color of his or her skin, would have unequivocal access to quality education and an equal opportunity to pursue his/her dreams.

People talk often of Brexit as the biggest challenge since the Second World War. It is certainly proving to be a lot more difficult and complicated than was promised by those who won the referendum campaign in 2016.
Betty Boothroyd
We read too much Shakespeare at school, and view our parliamentary politics as dynastic drama, in which an impatient crown prince frets at his long subordination and begins to scheme for the throne he knows he merits, was promised and has earned.
James Buchan
Real is the club of my heart, and I promised my grandfather that I would play there one day. I hope that it will happen.

Dylan Moran
When President Trump promised we would get better, cheaper health care that would fix the problems of the Affordable Care Act, I hoped it was true. Unfortunately, the American Healthcare Act promises giant cuts to the programs that I and every other poor, sick and disabled person have relied on for our lives.
Jason Becker
China’s one-child policy was born in 1980, after years of less severe measures to discourage births. The Communist Party promised that the policy would be temporary.
Barbara Demick
I know I’m just one man trying to do one thing, and the next day is not promised to any man. I’m very humble.
I got a lot of things that society had promised would make me whole and fulfilled – all the things that the culture tells you from preschool on will quiet the throbbing anxiety inside you – stature, the respect of colleagues, maybe even a kind of low-grade fame.
Anne Lamott
In high school, I stole a six-foot submarine sandwich from a banquet room in front of several hundred people. I did it because I was in marching band, and we were promised food if we played, and they broke their promise. It was my first and only heist, motivated by justice and hunger.
Greg van Eekhout
I promised my mom that if, after a year of putting 150 percent into my career it didn’t work out, I would go back to school. I never did go back.
Queen Latifah
People are so entitled they want things given to them. Nothing is promised to you.
Sara Evans
I saw the Internet as being something which would allow power mongers to control us, and that we would willingly go to that if it promised us salvation – if it promised to show us who we were and let us find ourselves as we had, uniquely in our generation, through rock music.
Pete Townshend
You promised to take care of me and not to turn your back on me. How is it possible that you never wrote to me even once and you never came back to see me? Do you think that it is fun for me to spend months, even years, without any news, without any hope!
Camille Claudel
Big Foster is a guy who was in line to be the head of this clan that’s been up in the mountains for 200 years, because his father was the leader or the Bren’in, his mother is now Bren’in, and they’re kind of royalty, so he was in line to be next. He’d been promised it from a young age, but it just hasn’t happened.
David Morse
There are, in the King case in particular, some names of confidential informants, persons to whom we promised confidentiality in return for their testimony. We have put their testimony in the public domain, but feel that their names should continue to be anonymous.
Louis Stokes
For years we’ve had leaders who promised to end America’s costly wars, only to cave in to the establishment view.
Steve Hilton
If the king refuses the constitution, I shall oppose him; if he accepts it, I shall defend him; and the day on which he gave himself up as my prisoner secured me more fully to his service than if he had promised me half his kingdom.
Marquis de Lafayette
I jumped out of an airplane on my 34th birthday because I promised myself I would. I have an interest in confronting my fears.
Michael Trucco
I just want to do God’s will. And he’s allowed me to go to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the promised land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I promised myself I wouldn’t work again until I found something that excited me.
Emily VanCamp
Well, first of all, I grew up in New York City, going to first a public school, then a private school, and when I got to the private school in Manhattan, I learned of what we called ‘The Promised Land,’ which are the Hamptons. I’ve always had an affinity for the Hamptons.
Mark Feuerstein
I was an accidental banker. To please my parents, I went for an interview with Chase Manhattan Bank in 1983. They promised to send me into their offices in more than 40 countries and essentially audit the practices. It was an extraordinary job.
Jacqueline Novogratz
I started with veteran K. Balachander sir, who called me for his series ‘Anni.’ He promised me that he would make sure that I get good film offers as well.
Adithya Menon
For the past two years, President Obama has promised our children the moon, stars, rainbows, unicorns and universal health care for all. But the White House Santa’s cradle-to-grave entitlement mandates are a spectacularly predictable bust.
Michelle Malkin
We have promised to do better, and no Republican concern should ever be enough to filibuster our own bill.
Orrin Hatch
My grandfather once ventured upon publishing a volume of hymns. I never heard anyone speak in their favour or argue that they ought to have been sung in the congregation. In that volume, he promised a second if the first should prove acceptable. We forgive him the first collection because he did not inflict another.
Charles Spurgeon
For more than 200 years, materialists have promised that science will eventually explain everything in terms of physics and chemistry. Believers are sustained by the faith that scientific discoveries will justify their beliefs.
Rupert Sheldrake
Well, we promised our fans that we’d put out records faster, and that’s what we’re doing. We figured out a way to condense our cycle, so to speak, by… continuing to write, trying to keep the creative ball rolling as often as possible.
Chester Bennington
I spent 19 years as a local government official; I spent two years in the Iowa Senate; my daughter is a public school teacher. We’re all counting on IPERS. The public servants are counting on the system they were promised when entering public service.
Kim Reynolds
I understand welfare because I lived it. I understand the difference between a want and a need. The Republican Party promised to bring welfare change. We must deliver on this promise.
Paul LePage
The rise of the social web promised a new era of personalization for globe-trotting. But like many things born online, as popularity of the new tools increased, efficiency and usefulness began to decrease.
Jenna Wortham
When you go through a significant injury and have a major career change, you truly do go one year at a time, and you don’t look past what’s going on now, because you are not sure what’s going to happen. Tomorrow is not promised.
Peyton Manning
Western Christians have imagined that, at the end of the day, God is going to throw the present space-time universe into a trashcan and we’ll be sitting on clouds playing harps. The ultimate future that we’re promised is much more interesting than that. It’s new heavens and a new Earth with new bodies to live in.
N. T. Wright
We’re building an independent political program that can run electoral politics and then turn on a dime to hold our leaders to task, in case they suddenly develop that old case of amnesia! We’ll be there to remind them what they promised and who they promised to work for!
Richard Trumka
The Hispanic community understands the American Dream and have not forgotten what they were promised – that in the U.S., a free market system, allows us all to succeed economically, achieve stability and security for your family and leave your children better off than yourselves.
Marco Rubio
My language and my sensibility are yearning to admit a kind of religious or transcendent dimension. But then there’s the reality: there’s no Heaven, no afterlife of the sort we were promised, and no personal God.
Seamus Heaney
Some Western states have collaborative water agreements with Indian tribes – Washington state, for instance, monitors a number of its rivers to protect spawning salmon, which are promised to native peoples under 19th-century treaties.
Charles C. Mann
I love playing baseball, and I always promised myself, if I had the chance, that I would work as hard as I could to be the best player I could possibly be.
Jose Altuve
To say that the United States has pursued diplomacy with North Korea is a little bit misleading. It did under the Clinton administration, though neither side completely lived up to their obligations. Clinton didn’t do what was promised, nor did North Korea, but they were making progress.
Noam Chomsky
Sufficient for me is that honour which is not seen of men but is felt in the heart, as faithful is He who hath promised and who never lies.
Saint Patrick
The Shiv Sena manifesto had promised concession in power bills. It was a poll promise which will be fulfilled.
Uddhav Thackeray
In the hospital, I promised myself that I ever walked again, that I would eat well and swim every day.

Andre Aciman
I usually get my stuff from people who promised somebody else that they would keep it a secret.
Walter Winchell
The government took a decision to implement ‘One Rank, One Pension’ for defence personnel in 2015 and promised to pay arrears in four instalments. I can say that all OROP arrears have been cleared, with over Rs 10,788 crore being spent.
Nirmala Sitharaman
At the age of two-and-a-half, I was run down by a truck. I had gone rogue in the house while my mother was bathing my sister. I went outside and met a friend who promised me candy. Afterward, I walked back by myself across the road where I fell down in the street. A 15-year-old boy delivering bread struck me down.
Trudie Styler
Rahul Gandhi has promised to remove poverty and unemployment. There is nothing new about the election promises of Congress. Had only half of those promises been fulfilled, India would have been the most prosperous country in the world today.
Rajnath Singh
I went from Arizona to all over Florida just doing workouts in front of scouts. I promised myself that I was going to sign with whatever team called me first.
Eddy Alvarez
I have acted in a way that violates my obligations to my family and violates my, or any, sense of right and wrong. I apologize first and most importantly to my family. I apologize to the public, whom I promised better.
Eliot Spitzer
The Cold War had become a battlefield marked by doublespeak. Disguise, distortion, and deception were accepted as reality. Truth was promised in a serum.
Annie Jacobsen
I think people like it when I tell them, ‘I’m lucky to be here, because they are, too. Ain’t nothing to do with age. There ain’t nothing promised to you. Everybody’s going to die.
Bobby Womack
We’ve not reached the promised land. We’re still wandering around, bumping into each other in the wilderness of ignorance and hate. That is why the King holiday is so important.
Yolanda King
They made us many promises, more than I can remember, but they never kept but one; they promised to take our land, and they took it.
Red Cloud
Who says I haggled for money? If directors like Yash Chopra promised me an amount for singing ‘Tujhe dekha to yeh jana sanam’ but back-tracked once the song was a huge hit, am I to blame for asking what was due to me?
Kumar Sanu
The people who misuse the Sabbath lose the blessings of spiritual food and growth promised to those who keep this commandment.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
A film can reach only the places which the distributor has promised you. Several films are not released internationally, and Web has that wide reach.
Ali Fazal
This is Life. Nothing’s promised or perfect, neither am I.
I always promised myself if I ever got the chance to do a ‘Flashdance’-type of movie, I would do my own dancing. I can say with pride that every single dance move in ‘Go For It!’ is my own dance move.
Aimee Garcia
I have promised on many occasions that I will build a consistent, predictable and sustainable cross-strait relationship.
Tsai Ing-wen
Any veteran can tell you it is already hard enough to see a doctor down at the VA and get the health care they were promised when they signed up to serve this country.
Nick Lampson
I promised to run the most open and transparent administration in Britain. That is why, with this brutally honest and unprecedented progress report, I am determined to level with Londoners.
Boris Johnson
We need health care reform – including promised Medicaid reform in New York… but it shouldn’t be done on the backs of already overburdened City residents who will undoubtedly have a tax increase forced on them to fill in the hole.
Dan Donovan
The Democrats promised equalizing outcomes through unlimited federal assistance while Republicans offered something that seemed less tangible – the promise of equalizing opportunity through free markets.
Rand Paul
Teddy Riley was telling everyone I was his female rapper, but he never came through. And Michael Bivens promised me all kinds of stuff but then he told me to wait.

Our country needs more bold, conservative leaders that will actually do what they promised to do prior to coming to Washington D.C.
Paul Gosar
From the beginning, we promised folks that they’ll see whatever event we cover in its entirety, from gavel to gavel – whether it’s the House of Representatives or the Senate. That’s the whole reason for being.
Brian Lamb
My parents were lured to America by the democracy here promised. In our family, freedom was a word to conjure by. Hoping for larger privileges for the growing family of children, they brought them to the New World, the world of many intellectual as well as material advantages.
Jenkin Lloyd Jones
My brother Bob doesn’t want to be in government – he promised Dad he’d go straight.
John F. Kennedy
A revolution is interesting insofar as it avoids like the plague the plague it promised to heal.
Daniel Berrigan
Claiming that Social Security benefits are safe may sound naive, but my view is actually quite cynical. I believe that as long as the elderly continue to vote in large numbers, no Congress will renege on promised payouts for those already eligible to receive benefits.
Richard Thaler
Our Nation must provide sufficient access to healthcare, adequate benefits, and the supplemental resources our veterans were promised and so dearly need. We owe our heroes no less.
Dan Lipinski
All I ever promised was that I was sure I could develop a new pharmacological agent which might answer a physiological question. Any utility would be implicit in that answer.
James Black
While waiting for a Moses to lead us into the promised land, we have forgotten how to walk.
Wendell Johnson
Sacrifice is a leader who puts the needs of millions of others before his own, who can forgo ego and pride in order to do what he promised he would. It’s rising above pettiness and partisanship for the good of the country.
S.E. Cupp
When I was younger I was a nightmare. I let people down. I resigned from Sheffield United because things were promised to me that weren’t forthcoming. I let people down when I was younger, certainly in management.
Steve Bruce
President Trump promised to negotiate trade agreements to get better deals for America and protect American jobs. Bottom line: He delivered.
Mark Meadows
Scientific management promised to replace rules of thumb with accurate measurements.
Jill Lepore
We not only have a legal obligation to honor our commitments, we have a moral obligation to provide the coverage we promised to provide to these people.
Bob Ney
My transactions are above board: I do not have money deposited in other accounts and have transparently declared all assets. My real wealth is, however, my experience as cofounder of Infosys and as Aadhar Chairman, which gave away 60,000 crore identity cards to people of India as promised.
Nandan Nilekani
The more consciously democratic Americans became, however, the less they were satisfied with a conception of the Promised Land, which went no farther than a pervasive economic prosperity guaranteed by free institutions.
Herbert Croly
Going back and getting my degree is something that I promised myself and my mom the day I called her and my dad to tell them that I was entering the draft. Not a lot of people in my family can say they got a college diploma, so I want to do that – for them and for me.
Jabari Parker
If something happens to me tomorrow, I’m going to go to Heaven, and that’s for sure because God’s promised to us in the Bible.
Albert Pujols
No one was elected to Congress because he or she promised to cut Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid.
James P. Hoffa
I had some connections from the newspapers that I did work with up there, so there was a newspaper publisher in Hollywood, and they promised me work and so on.
Marc Davis
God never promised us a trouble-free life.
Joyce Meyer
From my old neighborhood, I learned nothing was guaranteed, not even life itself. You better get it today, because tomorrow is not promised.
Junior Seau
Peace is one of the most precious gifts God has promised His children.
Joyce Meyer
I always promised myself that I wouldn’t do catwalk shows until the day I died.
John Rocha
I couldn’t follow the events of September 11 because I was proofreading a novel I’d just completed – on Islam and its quarrel with the West – that I’d promised, six months earlier, to deliver to my editor on September 12, 2001.
Pico Iyer
Throughout my campaign for Congress, I promised the people of Northwest Georgia that I would be the strongest defender of gun rights on Capitol Hill.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
Life is not promised forever. That’s the biggest thing that I learned and I enjoy and I will take with me past this pandemic, is just being able to appreciate every little thing that goes on.
Rodney Hood
The dot stands for ‘detail’ – always be paying attention to detail. I feel that people take you as serious as you take yourself. I spent a lot of time working on my craft, developing my style, and after I came out of my little incubation, I promised that I would pay attention to detail.
Anderson Paak
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, an employee, a student, a homemaker, a writer, it’s time to start forgetting about all the ways the world has promised you safety and comfort.
James Altucher
Peace is one of the most precious gifts God has promised His children. I know, because for many years my life was not peaceful, and I was miserable.
Joyce Meyer
I promised my wife 27 years ago when I left Florida State that I’d bring her back to Florida. I’m a little late, but better late than never.
Lee Corso
I had promised myself that after ‘Gajini,’ I would go back and take a break. However, ‘London Dreams’ began almost immediately.
I loved getting to do Promised Land with him. I mean, he’s really there for you. We did one very emotional scene in the church. He’s just a wonderful acting partner. You feel very safe with him.
Delta Burke
When I was in third grade, I promised my mom that I would get her a pink Cadillac Escalade.
Teddy Bridgewater
Lennox Lewis after the fight promised to give me rematch, and I very appreciate I have a chance to fight the great champion, great fighter that’s Lennox Lewis.
Vitali Klitschko
I always say you’ve only got one life to live, and you’re not promised a tomorrow. So, you might as well just have a good time with it.
Fantasia Barrino
If you’ve gone to a sci-fi convention, you’ve only seen half of it. ‘Con Man’ delivers what convention ‘all-access’ passes have only promised in the past.
Alan Tudyk
Growing up, I promised myself that if I was every lucky enough to have a hit and also a hit that I had written myself, I would never get tired of performing it. I would always be grateful for that.
Freya Ridings
My government has promised to comprehensively respect the independence of the judiciary.
Victor Ponta
When my wife and I promised the rest of our lives to each other, I doubt either of us suspected that life would involve quite so much TV.
Romesh Ranganathan
I made a promise to you and the people of our state when I was running for governor: I promised I would cut taxes by 10% for middle-class families.
Tony Evers
My favorite pre-Ponzi schemer was known as ‘520 Percent Miller’ because he promised 10 percent returns a week, or 520 percent a year. Of course he was just using new investors’ money to pay old investors, and soon he was on the lam.
Mitchell Zuckoff
I phoned the KKK Grand Wizard David Duke in Louisiana and asked why my membership was being delayed. He said my application was on his desk and promised to deal with it personally. It was the first of many conversations with David Duke. We talked about his family, the weather, and about his political ambitions.
Ron Stallworth
I realize we’re not promised tomorrow. Believe me, I realize that. But if God blesses me and lets me stay, I love my life so much, it is such a good life. I am eager to throw myself at His feet, but I don’t want to get on the first busload that is going.
Barbara Mandrell
The fine print in the President’s Social Security proposal is that all present and future workers under age 55 will have their promised retirement benefits cut.
Mark Dayton
When one joins the military, he or she is promised health care for life. So we need to make sure that happens.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
When I left my mountain home and came to Washington, I promised the veterans in our district that I would be their weapon in Washington. I will never abandon those who sacrificed their life and livelihood in defense of our freedoms.
Madison Cawthorn
When I first started doing sketch comedy, I promised myself that if I were ever to have any success in this business, I wouldn’t hold back. Why get there and play it safe?
Will Ferrell
Augmented reality is the ‘boy who cried wolf’ of the post-Internet world – it’s long been promised but has rarely been delivered in a satisfying way.
Om Malik
The sweetest feeling you can have in this world is to feel the hand of the Lord upon your shoulder. In my patriarchal blessing as a boy, I was promised that I would have the gift of discernment. I have to acknowledge that such a declaration has been abundantly fulfilled in my life.
Thomas S. Monson
We were promised that we would have Jehovah, Jesus Christ, as our Savior and Redeemer. He would assure that we would all be resurrected. And He would make it possible for us to pass the test of life if we exercised faith in Him by being obedient.
Henry B. Eyring
When the seasons shift, even the subtle beginning, the scent of a promised change, I feel something stir inside me. Hopefulness? Gratitude? Openness? Whatever it is, it’s welcome.
Kristin Armstrong
Who promised you that only for joy were you brought to this earth?
Anna Freud
I’ve never recorded anyone else’s songs. I’m not interested. If you gave me a song by Bono and Edge and promised me a number one hit with it I’d still say no. That, for me, is not the kind of success I want.
Gilbert O’Sullivan
Growing up in the Sixties, whether it was the Batmobile or the costumes Porter Wagoner wore or the music that came from there, California was the home of what a friend of mine calls ‘custom culture.’ It seemed like the promised land.
Marty Stuart
When I became prime minister last September, I promised the Japanese people that I would not tolerate the politics of indecision. A propensity to delay difficult and weighty decisions has been hurting our country. It is detrimental to our economy, society and future, and it cannot be allowed to continue.
Yoshihiko Noda
You lose yourself in the to-do list and never tackle those big things you promised you would when the campaign came to an end.
John Dickerson
Apple is in a position they’ve been in a lot of times before. They’re like Moses showing the way to the promised land, but they don’t actually go there.
Tim O’Reilly
When I ran for Congress I promised to help make health care affordable again.
Bobby Jindal
There’s variables at every single gig. I look forward to those every night. We have a lot of things that happen in our show, a lot of people from the outside watching the show might think it’s one schtick after the next. We promised ourselves we have to be there mentally. We have to be aware. We are forced to be aware.
Tyler Joseph
When I was in Grade 9, there was an election for high school president, and one of the candidates told us that if we elected him, he would abolish homework. He promised this to the entire student body from the stage in the school gymnasium.
Martin O’Malley
Far from the quick and easy exit that Leave campaigners once promised, Brexit has become mired in its own internal contradictions.
Jo Swinson
The Middle East is a land of great injustice. The Israelis can claim – or wish to, at least – that Lord Balfour’s Declaration of 1917 promised Britain support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine, which didn’t just mean the left-hand bit that became Israel.
Robert Fisk
O’Malley wanted to move the Dodgers out of Brooklyn because he saw the promised land. He was right about that, but to this day I think he was wrong to take the Dodgers out of Brooklyn.
Jerry Reinsdorf
America promised equality. Its constitution said so. My schoolbooks said so. The country wasn’t perfect, to be sure. But its ideals were. And every day brought us closer to those ideals.
George T. Conway III
We have promised to support India in its international aspiration. We have agreed to set up a working group on technology.
Viktor Orban
Without significant reform, the Social Security Administration will be legally and financially unable to pay full promised benefits within a generation.
Ron Lewis
Well, mutual aid is a very critical and important thing. For a while, I was saying libertarians have no souls, but I promised them I wouldn’t if they hammered home the importance of mutual aid.
Vermin Supreme
I don’t think anybody has ever been able to live up to what they promised. I don’t know a government that has ever been successful at that because once they get into power, things change and the world is controlled also by business now.
Hugh Masekela
My grandmother would give me a beautiful book each year. I especially loved the Beatrix Potter books. They were very detailed. And I promised myself that was what I’d do. I also loved the big words she used. I was excited because I knew what they meant from the context. I put a few big words in for just that reason.
Jan Brett
I have promised my mum that I am going to get a degree even if I turn 50.
Ananya Birla
Theresa May… is ideally placed to implement Brexit on the best possible terms for the British people, and she has promised she will do so.
Andrea Leadsom
This goes across all racial lines, ethnicities, religious backgrounds. People believe in disciplining their children… It’s the 21st century. My mom was wrong. She did the best she could, but she was wrong about some of that stuff she taught me. And I promised my kids, I won’t teach that mess to them.
Cris Carter
Rafa Benitez promised me a certain development, but very quickly he took away that promise and it was a totally different situation.
Ryan Babel
I’ve been on a lot of film sets, and I’ve always promised myself I wouldn’t create a set where people dread coming to work.
Taika Waititi
I purposely lost a fight to Billy Fox because they promised me that I would get a shot to fight for the title if I did.
Jake LaMotta
Hamas has effectively kidnapped Gaza. Instead of turning it into the Singapore of the Middle East that was promised, they have turned it into a fortress of terror.
Naftali Bennett
I must demonstrate I’m closer to people – a simpler, calmer presence, yet someone who can also make decisions and obtain promised results.
Francois Hollande
The State Department has promised they will never have another temporary mission facility like the one in Benghazi that is so lightly protected. But at the same time, history tends to repeat itself here, and so it might not repeat itself in exactly the same way as Benghazi.
Mitchell Zuckoff
I wanted to win that world title so bad because I promised my daughter I would, and so I did.
Caleb Plant
For a long time, rich countries have promised to reduce poverty but have failed to match their words with adequate action. Of course, some important progress has been made and millions of lives have been saved, but millions more could be saved.
Peter Singer
I promised never to let the Rwandan Genocide die because I knew the Rwandans didn’t have much power internationally and certainly didn’t have the resources. I felt it was my duty having witnessed it, and having stayed to witness it, that I had to talk about it and keep it going.
Romeo Dallaire
The sheik is, thank God, still alive and this hurts Bush who promised to his people to kill Osama.
Mohammed Omar
One day I promised God that if he would give me my voice back I would never smoke again. I got three octaves back after quitting.
Mariah Carey
Our success in Singapore was a Herculean effort by the whole team. Now I am determined to deliver on all we promised. I will be watching like a hawk.
Sebastian Coe
In 2012, I promised myself I’d do something each month I’d never done before. So I skydived. I did trapeze lessons. I rode a motorcycle… All stuff that I’d never done.
Ashley Roberts
I’ve anchored my share of live coverage over the years, including car chases. At MSNBC, I often prayed the ‘delay switch’ would actually work as promised. And, I frequently wondered what I would do or say if a violent and graphic incident accidentally aired on my broadcast.
David Shuster
It is an honor to support strong legislation to make it easier for our veterans to receive the care promised to them by a grateful nation.
Cindy Hyde-Smith
I promised my mother that I’d be a famous footballer one day after seeing players such as Croatia’s Davor Suker and Serbia’s Predrag Mijatovic shine in France.
Marko Arnautovic
When completed, the budget must provide the services we have promised to our constituents.
Jane D. Hull
I am a believer in the rights of the unborn and the goodness of every life, and I have promised that, as governor, I will champion those values.
Doug Ducey
California is a tragic country – like Palestine, like every Promised Land.
Christopher Isherwood
Over 5,000 years, states have made surprisingly consistent claims about their duties. They have promised to protect people from threats; promote their welfare; deliver justice and also, perhaps less obviously, uphold truth – originally truths about the cosmos, and more recently truths drawn from reason and knowledge.
Geoff Mulgan
The reason why I returned to dance is simply because I love dance. I had also promised myself that I wanted to make more sense of dance, study and understand it far more in detail.
Padmapriya Janakiraman
You can see when an actor gets bored: Their eyes go dead. I promised myself I’d never let that happen. If it does, I’ll go and live on a desert island for a year.
Anna Friel
This Congress has promised all manner of border security and port security to the tune of billions of dollars… yet we have – to date – funded our promises for port security at only $900 million. That’s quite a distance between what we say and what we actually do.
Solomon Ortiz
I come from North New Jersey, where nothing’s promised.
Michael B. Jordan
While our bipartisan establishment worships diversity, Trump saw Middle America recoiling from the demographic change brought about by Third World invasions. And he promised to curb them.
Pat Buchanan
Tomorrow is not promised to any of us.
Kirby Puckett
When words I uttered, believing them to be true, were exposed as false, I was constrained by my duties and loyalty to the President and unable to comment. But I promised reporters and the public that I would someday tell the whole story of what I knew.
Scott McClellan
