A vow is fixed and unalterable determination to do a thing, when such a determination is related to something noble which can only uplift the man who makes the resolve.
Personally, I hold that a man, who deliberately and intelligently takes a pledge and then breaks it, forfeits his manhood.
Your capacity to keep your vow will depend on the purity of your life.
A vow is a snare for sin.

We must not promise what we ought not, lest we be called on to perform what we cannot.

Hasty resolutions are of the nature of vows, and to be equally avoided.

Profession: British Religious Leader, Founder of Pennsylvania
It is the purpose that makes strong the vow; But vows to every purpose must not hold.
Men's vows are women's traitors!
'Tis not the many oaths that make the truth; But the plain single vow, that is vow'd true.
