A great statesman is he who knows when to depart from traditions, as well as when to adhere to them.
In a very real sense, the Constitution is our compact with history . . . [but] the Constitution can maintain that compact and serve as the lodestar of our political system only if its terms are binding on us. To the extent we Depart from the document's language and rely instead on generalities that we see written between the lines, we rob the Constitution of its binding force and give free reign to the fashions and passions of the day.alex kozinski
If, after I Depart this vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your eye at some homely girl.h. l. mencken
You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately... Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!Oliver Cromwell
Depart then satisfied, for he also who releases thee is satisfied.marcus aurelius
Depart then satisfied, for he also who releases thee is satisfied.
Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou Depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.abraham
A stone lies in a river; a piece of wood is jammed against it; dead leaves, drifting logs, and branches caked with mud collect; weeds settle there, and soon birds have made a nest and are feeding their young among the blossoming water plants. Then the river rises and the earth is washed away. The birds Depart, the flowers wither, the branches are dislodged and drift downward; no trace is left of the floating island but a stone submerged by the water; — such is our personality.cyril connolly
Now fitted the halter, now traversed the cart,And often took leave, but was loth to Depart.Matthew Prior

Though the principles of the banking trade may appear somewhat abstruse, the practice is capable of being reduced to strict rules. To Depart upon any occasion from these rules, in consequence of some flattering speculation of extraordinary gain, is almost always extremely dangerous, and frequently fatal to the banking company which attempts it.Adam Smith
O that we may all be living in such a state of preparedness, that, when summoned to Depart, we may ascend the summit whence faith looks forth on all that Jesus hath suffered and done, and exclaiming, " We have waited for Thy salvation, O Lord," lie down with Moses on Pisgah , to awake with Moses in paradise.henry melvill
But in vain did she conjure him To Depart her presence so, Having a thousand tongues t'allure him, And but one to bid him go.Sir Walter Raleigh
Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; Depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
They need not Depart; give ye them to eat.
Marx and Engels themselves can never be taken simply at their word: the errors of their writings on the past should not be evaded or ignored, but identified and criticized. To do so is not to Depart from historical materialism, but to rejoin it. (...) To take 'liberties' with the signature of Marx is in this sense merely to enter into the freedom of Marxism.
Rejoice, oh! grieving heart, The hours fly past; With each some sorrow dies, With each some shadow flies, Until at last The red dawn in the east Bids weary night Depart, And pain is past.Adelaide Anne Proctor

I strove with none, for none was worth my strife; Nature I loved, and after Nature, Art; I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to Depart.
O you who believe, when you meet an army, be firm, and remember Allah much, that you may be successful. And obey Allah and His Messenger and dispute not one with another, lest you get weak-hearted and your power Depart; and be steadfast. Surely Allah is with the steadfast.
O, do not wish one more! Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host, That he which hath no stomach to this fight, Let him Depart; his passport shall be made, And crowns for convoy put into his purse: We would not die in that man's company, That fears his fellowship to die with us.
