Since there's no help, come let us kiss and part; Nay, I have done, you get no more of me, And I am glad, yea glad with all my heart That thus so cleanly I myself can free; Shake hands forever, cancel all our vows, And when we meet at any time again, Be it not seen in either of our brows That we one jot of former love retain.
Wilt thou have this man to thy wedded husband, to live together after God's ordinance in the holy estate of Matrimony? Wilt thou obey him, and serve him, love, honour and keep him, in sickness and in health; and, forsaking all other, keep thee only unto him, so long as ye both shall live?Book of Common Prayer
Our Vows are heard betimes! and Heaven takes care To grant, before we can conclude the prayer: Preventing angels met it half the way, And sent us back to praise, who came to pray.john dryden

Condoms will break, but I can assure you that Vows of abstinence will break more easily than condoms.joycelyn elders
If Nature did not take delight in blood,She would have made more easy ways to good.We that are bound by Vows and by promotion,With pomp of holy sacrifice and rites,To teach belief in good and still devotion,To preach of heaven's wonders and delights —Yet, when each of us in his own heart looks,He finds the God there far unlike his books.fulke greville
You’re not a nun, are you? You haven’t taken one of those absurd Vows that cut you off from what otherwise might be a full and healthy human existence?charles de lint
I saw thee in a vision of the night Transfigured; for it seemed that on thy brows The heavens did rest with all their stars, like boughs Laden with blossoms; round thy feet the bright Green waves, like grass, ran rippling, strewn with white Star-fragments of rent petals: wasted Vows, And ruined prayers I thought them, such as house In hearts that love and are not loved aright.john evelyn barlas

He Vows to return to her if he survives his ordeal, but if he dies first, then he hopes she will remember him with love.

I saw thee in a vision of the night Transfigured; for it seemed that on thy brows The heavens did rest with all their stars, like boughs Laden with blossoms; round thy feet the bright Green waves, like grass, ran rippling, strewn with white Star-fragments of rent petals: wasted Vows, And ruined prayers I thought them, such as house In hearts that love and are not loved aright.
It is the hour when from the boughs The nightingale's high note is heard; It is the hour when lovers' Vows Seem sweet in every whispered word; And gentle winds, and waters near, Make music to the lonely ear. Each flower the dews have lightly wet, And in the sky the stars are met, And on the wave is deeper blue, And on the leaf a browner hue, And in the heaven that clear obscure, So softly dark, and darkly pure. Which follows the decline of day, As twilight melts beneath the moon away.lord byron
And silence their mourning With Vows of returning But never intending to visit them more. No never, no never, intending to visit them more.
