I can be broken without being held. Given and then taken away. Some people use me to deceive, but when delivered, I am the greatest gift of all. What am I?[A promise.]
It’s not wise to make promises you can’t keep, Flash. Look around. This is the last place you’ll ever see.
The only person that can keep a promise so big is God, and I haven’t seen him pick up a scalpel lately.
The promises you have made will stand. Blood feuds last a lifetime. What you do, arseling, is you keep living each day until the last.
No writer worth his salt can resist a good story, just as no politician can resist making promises he can’t keep.
