I Solemnly Swear quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#1. I believe with all my heart in delivering on my contract with my readers. They've got plenty of other things to do, so I had better give them a reason to turn every one of these 550 pages. This is my promise: I solemnly swear I'll make you laugh out loud at least once, cry a little in private, and burn whatever you left on the stove. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
I Solemnly Swear quotes by J.K. Rowling
#2. I solemnly swear that I'm up to no good. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Karen M. McManus
#3. I stand and hold out my hand. She gives me a skeptical look, but takes it and lets me pull her to her feet. I put my other hand in the air. 'Bronwyn Rojas, I solemnly swear not to murder you today or at any point in the future. Deal?'
'You're ridiculous,' she mutters, going even redder.
'It concerns me you're avoiding a promise not to murder me. #Quote by Karen M. McManus
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Noelle Stevenson
#4. I solemnly swear to do my best
Every day, And in all that I do,
To be brave and strong,
To be truthful and compassionate,
To be interesting and interested,
To respect nature,
To pay attention and question
The world around me,
To think of others first,
To ALWAYS help and protect my friends
Then there's a line about God or whatever
And to make the world a better place
For Lumberjane scouts
And for everyone else. #Quote by Noelle Stevenson
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Cecily Strong
#5. I solemnly swear not to talk about Hillary's appearance, because that is not journalism. #Quote by Cecily Strong
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Melanie Joy
#6. The carnistic schema, which twists information so that nonsense seems to make perfect sense, also explains why we fail to see the absurdities of the system. Consider, for instance, advertising campaigns in which a pig dances joyfully over the fire pit where he or she is to be barbecued, or chickens wear aprons while beseeching the viewer to eat them. And consider the Veterinarian's Oath of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 'I solemnly swear to use my...skills for the...relief of animal suffering,' in light of the fact that the vast majority of veterinarians eat animals simply because they like the way meat tastes. Or think about how poeple won't replace their hamburgers with veggie burgers, even if the flavor is identical, because they claim that, if they try hard enough, they can detect a subtle difference in texture. Only when we deconstruct the carnistic schema can we see the absurdity of placing our preference for a flawless re-creation of a textural norm over the lives and deaths of billions of others. #Quote by Melanie Joy
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Francesca Lia Block
#7. The next night I went back to the sea dressed in 1950s silk travel scarves – Paris with the Eiffel tower and ladies in hats and pink poodles, Venice with bronze horses and gondoliers, New York in celestial blue and silver. I brought candles and lit the candles, all the candles, in a circle around the lifeguard stand and put a tape in my boom box. I came down the ramp with the sea lapping at my feet and the air like a scarf of warm silk and the stars like my tiara. And my angel was sitting there solemnly in the sand, sitting cross-legged like a buddha, with sand freckling his brown limbs and he watched me the way no boy had ever watched me before, with so much tenderness and also a tremendous sorrow, which was what my dances were about just as much, the sorrow of not being loved the way my womb, rocking emptily inside of me, insisted I be loved, the sorrow of never finding the thing I had been searching for. #Quote by Francesca Lia Block
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Jeff Bridges
#8. I love seeing somebody act real earnest and serious, like Jackie Gleason. He makes me laugh because he reflects back to me my own serious-mindedness and how ridiculous it all is. It's always easier to see somebody else in that position than yourself, and you laugh. It's like the classic slipping on the banana peel, or someone getting hit by a pie in the face. Why do those things make us laugh? Is it from relief, like: Thank God it wasn't me? Or is it something else: I'm being very serious now. I'm pontificating earnestly and solemnly about - POW! PIE IN THE FACE! The bust-up of certainty. #Quote by Jeff Bridges
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Lee Goldberg
#9. I had to stop him from arresting an old lady who let her dog urinate against the fire hydrant that was in front of Burgerville headquarters.
"You'll blow our cover."
"But what if there is a fire?"
"The fire department will come and put it out," I said.
"With what?"
"Water," I said.
"Not from that hydrant," Monk said. "It's inoperable."
"No, it's not," I said. "It can still be used."
"There is urine all over it," Monk said. "no fireman would dare touch it, nor would any other human being."
"Firefighters run into burning buildings," I said."They aren't going to care about some dog pee on a fire hydrant."
"They would if they knew," Monk said. "We should call and warn them. Call Joe right now. He can get the word out faster than we can."
"Every fire hydrant in the city has dog pee on it, Mr. Monk. It's how dogs mark their territory. I can guarantee you that every male dog that has passed that hydrant has pissed on it."
He looked at me, wide eyed, "No."
"It's what dogs do," I said. "The firefighters knows this."
Monk swallowed hard. "And they still use the hydrants?"
"Of course they do."
"They are the bravest men on earth," Monk said solemnly. #Quote by Lee Goldberg
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Rick Riordan
#10. I'm gonna be percy Jackson when I grow up," she told Hazel solemnly.
Hazel Smiled and ruffled her hair. "That's a good thing to be, Julia."
"Although," Frank said. "Frank Zhang would be good too. #Quote by Rick Riordan
I Solemnly Swear quotes by John Steinbeck
#11. Casy said solemnly, This here ol' man jus' lived a life an' just died out of it. I don't know whether he was good or bad, but that don't matter much. He was alive, an' that's what matters. An' now his dead, an' that don't matter ... #Quote by John Steinbeck
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Brenda Ueland
#12. When Van Gogh was a young man in his early twenties, he was in London studying to be a clergyman. He had no thought of being an artist at all. he sat in his cheap little room writing a letter to his younger brother in Holland, whom he loved very much. He looked out his window at a watery twilight, a thin lampost, a star, and he said in his letter something like this: "it is so beautiful I must show you how it looks." And then on his cheap ruled note paper, he made the most beautiful, tender, little drawing of it.

When I read this letter of Van Gogh's it comforted me very much and seemed to throw a clear light on the whole road of Art. Before, I thought that to produce a work of painting or literature, you scowled and thought long and ponderously and weighed everything solemnly and learned everything that all artists had ever done aforetime, and what their influences and schools were, and you were extremely careful about *design* and *balance* and getting *interesting planes* into your painting, and avoided, with the most astringent severity, showing the faintest *acedemical* tendency, and were strictly modern. And so on and so on.

But the moment I read Van Gogh's letter I knew what art was, and the creative impulse. It is a feeling of love and enthusiasm for something, and in a direct, simple, passionate and true way, you try to show this beauty in things to others, by drawing it.

And Van Gogh's little drawing on the cheap note paper was a wo #Quote by Brenda Ueland
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Christine Feehan
#13. I love you, Francesca," Gabriel told her solemnly. "I cannot express in words what you are to me."
She smiled up at him. "You do a fairly good job expressing yourself."
His eyebrow shot up. "Fairly good?"
"I think your ego is already far too large. I am not about to call you the greatest lover in the world."
His hand cupped her soft breast, his thumb stroking small caresses over her taut nipple. "But you would if it were not for fear of my ego? #Quote by Christine Feehan
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Kiersten White
#14. I kind of wish they'd shut up," Jack said.
"Dude, true dat," Lend answered.
Jack nodded solemnly. "For serious. #Quote by Kiersten White
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Ayn Rand
#15. Mr. Rearden," said Francisco, his voice solemnly calm, "if you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down on his shoulders - what would you tell him to do?" "I ... don't know. What ... could he do? What would you tell him? #Quote by Ayn Rand
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Simon R. Green
#16. I am large. I contain multitudes," I said solemnly. "Especially on Tuesdays. #Quote by Simon R. Green
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Philip Roth
#17. I do not say correct or savory. I do not say seemly or even natural. I say serious. Sensationally serious. Unspeakably serious. Solemnly, recklessly, blissfully serious. #Quote by Philip Roth
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Patricia Briggs
#18. Obstreperous, 'huh," said Tad. "I see you've been using that Big Word of the Day calendar I got you last Christmas."

"That is irrefragable," I told him solemnly. #Quote by Patricia Briggs
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#19. I've missed you, Sebastian."
"Have you, love?" He unfastened the buttons of her robe, the light eyes glittering with heat as her skin was revealed. "What part did you miss the most?"
"Your mind," she said, and smiled at his expression.
"I was hoping for a far more depraved answer than that."
"Your mind is depraved," she told him solemnly.
He gave a husky laugh. "True. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
I Solemnly Swear quotes by John Green
#20. We were walking away from the car together when Margo reached down for my hand,laced her fingers in mine,and squeezed.I squeezed back and then glanced at her.She nodded her head solemnly,and I nodded back,and then she let go of my hand. #Quote by John Green
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Kristin Hannah
#21. It's a promise ring," he said solemnly. "The lady at the store said it's what you give the girl you love. It means I want to marry you someday. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#22. I am the shee-it," the adolescent said in a singsong voice. Then he swung around, smirking at the nearly five-thousand-year-old Egyptian vampire.
"Who's your daddy, M?"
Far from being offended, Mencheres went over and flawlessly executed a street-style handshake complete with finger slaps, fist bumps, and a high-low finale.
"You are the shit," he solemnly agreed #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Billy Graham
#23. Are you perhaps one of those who worries about having committed the unpardonable sin? If so, you should face squarely what the Bible says on this subject, not what you may have heard from others. The unpardonable sin is rejecting the truth about Christ. It is rejecting, completely and finally, the witness of the Holy Spirit, which declares that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who alone can save us from our sins. Have you rejected Christ in your own life, and said in your heart that what the Bible teaches about Him is a lie? Then I tell you as solemnly and as sincerely as I know how that you are in a very dangerous position. I urge you without delay to accept the truth about Christ, and to come to humble confession and repentance and faith. It would be tragic for you to persist in your unbelief, and eventually go into eternity without hope and without God. #Quote by Billy Graham
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#24. Alina, I'll be back to fetch you for dinner, but should you grow restless, do feel free to run screaming from the room or take a dagger to her. Whatever seems most fitting at the time."
"Are you still here?" snapped Baghra.
"I go but hope to remain in your heart," he said solemnly. Then he winked and disappeared. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#25. But it seems to me that a man cannot and ought not to say that he loves, he said. Why not? I asked. Because it will always be a lie. As though it were a strange sort of discovery that someone is in love! Just as if, as soon as he said that, something went snap-bang - he loves. Just as if, when he utters that word, something extraordinary is bound to happen, with signs and portents, and all the cannons firing at once. It seems to me, he went on, that people who solemnly utter those words, 'I love you,' either deceive themselves, or what's still worse, deceive others. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Julia Quinn
#26. No, of course not," Belle said, playfully swatting him on the shoulder. "I never, never even once thought I was making a mistake. I was just a bit at odds with myself because my wedding wasn't exactly how I dreamed it was going to be."
"I'm sorry," John said softly.
"No, no, don't be. Just because it wasn't what I thought I wanted doesn't mean it wasn't absolutely perfect. Oh, dear, am I making any sense at all.?"
John nodded solemnly.
"I thought that I needed a church and hundreds of guest and music that actually sounded like music, but I was wrong. What I needed was a drunken priest, irreverent guests, and a companion who learned to play piano from a goat."
"Then you got exactly what you needed."
"I suppose so. But then again, all I really needed was you."
John leaned down to kiss her again, and they remained thus occupied for the next hour. #Quote by Julia Quinn
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#27. When I woke the next morning in my room at White's Motel, I showered and stood naked in front of the mirror, watching myself solemnly brush my teeth. I tried to feel something like excitement but came up only with a morose unease. Every now and then I could see myself-truly see myself-and a sentence would come to me, thundering like a god into my head, and as I saw myself then in front of that tarnished mirror what came was 'the woman with the hole in her heart'. That was me. #Quote by Cheryl Strayed
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Gail Carson Levine
#28. The Writer's Oath
I promise solemnly:
1. to write as often and as much as I can,
2. to respect my writing self, and
3. to nurture the writing of others.
I accept these responsibilities and shall honor them always. #Quote by Gail Carson Levine
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#29. Only when they approached the Rutledge did Win break the silence. It pleased her that she sounded so calm. "I will abide by your wishes, Kev. From now on, our relationship will be platonic and friendly. Nothing more." She paused at the first step and looked up at him solemnly. "I've been given a rare opportunity... a second chance at life. And I intend to make the most of it. I'm not going to waste my love on a man who doesn't want or need it. I won't bother you again. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#30. They say in extreme moments time will slow, returning to its unmoving core, and standing there, it seemed as if everything stopped. Within the stillness, I felt the old, irrepressible ache to know what my point in the world might be. I felt the longing more solemnly than anything I'd ever felt, even more than my old innate loneliness. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Jojo Moyes
#31. Okay, how's this? Margery O'Hare, I solemnly promise never to marry you."
"And I won't talk about marrying you. Or sing songs about it. Or even think about marrying you."
H glanced around him, then lowered his voice, placing his mouth beside her ear so that she squirmed a little. "But I will stop by and do sinful things to that fine body of yours. If you'll allow me."
"How sinful?" She whispered.
"Oh. Bad. Ungodly."
She slid her hand inside his overalls, feeling the faint sheen of sweat on his warm skin. For a moment it was just the two of them. The sounds and scents of the mine receded, and all she could feel was the thumping of her heart, the pulse of his skin against hers, the ever-present drumbeat of her need for him. "God loves a sinner, Sven." She reached up and kissed him, then delivered a swift bite to his lower lip.
"But not as much as I do. #Quote by Jojo Moyes
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Paul Rudnick
#32. I'm glad you're gay," she said solemnly, "because that way, if I can't have you, no one can."
"Um, Rocher," I mentioned, "like, a dude could have him."
This had never occurred to Rocher because she'd thought that Jate being gay translated as, "I love Rocher Bargemueller so much but I don't deserve her so I'll never have sex again." The concept of Jate with a guy was fresh turf and Rocher regarded him with an especially deranged sparkle in her eyes.
"I could be a dude," she said. #Quote by Paul Rudnick
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Samantha Young
#33. Well,' Elodie said with a sigh, 'since Hannah has successfully ruined the appetites of her male relatives, that means more dessert for us girls. We're having sticky toffee pudding and ice cream.'

'Och … well … you know, I'm feeling much better all of a sudden.' Adam gestured to Braden, whose cheeks had warmed at the mention of dessert. 'I could go for some pudding.'

Braden nodded solemnly. 'Funnily enough, me too.'

Determined to stock up on good food before I returned to my diet-food-laden fridge back at the flat, I wasn't sure I wanted to share pudding with the boys. No, I wasn't sure about that at all. I looked over at Hannah and asked evilly, 'What was that about boobs and hormones? #Quote by Samantha Young
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Gary Jennings
#34. After the survivor of the Spanish conquest has told his life's story he is convicted by the Inquisition: He posted no brief in defense or mitigation of his offenses, and when he was most solemnly advised by the Court President of the dire consequences he faced if found guilty, Juan Damasceno volunteered only one comment: "It will mean I do not go to the Christian heaven?" He was told that that would indeed be the worst of his punishments: that he would most assuredly not go to Heaven. At which, his smile sent a thrill of horror through every soul of the Court. #Quote by Gary Jennings
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#35. Jared laughed. "Come on, I brought a spare helmet for you," he said, reaching into his locker again.

As he spoke, she reached for him in her mind, and felt the pleasure he felt in his motorbike. She could taste some of the thrill, the speed and the danger.

"Ahahaha!" said Kami. "No, you didn't. You brought it for someone else, someone who doesn't know that you have crashed that bike fifty-eight times!"

"Technically speaking, only fifty-one of those times were my fault."

"Technically speaking, you drive like a rabid chicken who has hijacked a tractor."

"Like a bat out of hell," Jared said. "Nice simile. Sounds sort of dangerous and cool. Consider it."

"Not a chance. I like my brains the way they are, not lightly scrambled and scattered across a road. And speaking of bad boy clichés, really, a motorcycle?"

"Again, I say: rugged," Jared told her. "Manly."

"I often see Holly on hers," Kami said solemnly. "When she stops for traffic, sometimes she puts on some manly lip gloss. I'm not getting on a bike. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Charles Dickens
#36. I whistled and made nothing of going. But the village was very peaceful and quiet, and the light mists were solemnly rising, as if to show me the world, and I had been so innocent and little there, and all beyond was so unknown and great, that in that moment with a strong heave and sob I broke into tears. #Quote by Charles Dickens
I Solemnly Swear quotes by R. C. Lehmann
#37. I met a solid rowing friend and asked about the Race. "How fared it with the wind," I said, "When stroke increased the pace? You swung it forward mightily, you heaved it greatly back. "Your muscles rose in knotted lumps, I almost heard the crack. "And while we roared and rattled too, your eyes were fixed like glue. "What thoughtwent flying through your mind, how fared it, Five, with you?" But Five made answer solemnly, "I heard them fire a gun, "No other mortal thing I heard until the Race was done." #Quote by R. C. Lehmann
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Laury Falter
#38. You," he whispered his eyes warm and fixated on me, "hold my heart captive."
I nodded solemnly before murmuring my reply. "And I'll never let it go. #Quote by Laury Falter
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Walter M. Miller Jr.
#39. You heard him say it? 'Pain's the only evil I know about.' You heard that?"
The monk nodded solemnly.
"And that society is the only thing that determines whether an act is wrong or not? That too?"
"Dearest God, how did those two heresies get back into the world after all this time? Hell has limited imaginations down there. 'The serpent deceived me, and I did eat. #Quote by Walter M. Miller Jr.
I Solemnly Swear quotes by John Flanagan
#40. She shook her head in admiration. "You've thought of everything," she said. But Will looked up at her and shook his head solemnly.
"I doubt it," he said. "No matter how thoroughly you plan, no matter how much you think you know, you've never thought of everything. #Quote by John Flanagan
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Priscilla Shirer
#41. 1. I DO SOLEMNLY RESOLVE to embrace my current season of life and will maximize my time in it. I will resist the urge to hurry through or circumvent any portion of my journey but will live with a spirit of contentment. #Quote by Priscilla Shirer
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#42. He found his voice first, though it was a ragged whisper, "Thank you." If I'd had enough breath I'd have laughed. My throat was so dry, that my voice sounded stiff. "Trust me on this, Frost, it was my pleasure." He bent over and laid a kiss on my cheek. "I will try to do better next time." He moved his hands away from me, letting me move, but stayed sheathed inside me as if he were reluctant to let that go. I looked at him, thinking he was joking, but his face was utterly serious. "It gets better than this?" I asked. He nodded solemnly. "Oh, yes." "The queen was a fool," I said softly. He smiled then. "I always thought so. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Patti Smith
#43. - There are many truths and there are many worlds, said the sign solemnly.
- Yes, I said, feeling quite humbled. And you were right. I did dream, many dreams, and they were much more than dreams, as if originating from the dawn of the mind. Yes, I absolutely dreamed. #Quote by Patti Smith
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Meljean Brook
#44. He cupped her face in his hands, made her meet his gaze. Solemnly, he said, I heard you say that when two people love each other, they fight through everything together. Every doubt, every challenge, every pain. Fight with me, Mina. Please. You are the only one for me, for as long as I live. And if you love me, fight with me. #Quote by Meljean Brook
I Solemnly Swear quotes by Kristen Callihan
#45. I'm having inappropriate thoughts of running off with it." I tell her solemnly. "And selling it." "There's the little thief I know." "I'd give most of the money to charity." She doesn't look convincing. "Now, now, don't try to Robin Hood it," I tease. "It messes with my mental image of your mercenary ways. #Quote by Kristen Callihan

I let out a breath, feeling emotion wash over me. Same goes for you, brother, I said solemnly. #Quote by Mia Sheridan
