P is for Promise

A promise made is a debt unpaid.  ~Robert Service
What is promise?
It is a declaration assuring that one will or will not do something.
Sometimes we say it a vow, an oath, or a pledge.

A couple of lover will make a lot of promises one another that they will life together forever until the end of the world. They promise not to leave the couple until death separates them.
A politician promises to build the country if he wins the election.
A businessman promises to the client that the agreement will advantage more than other can give.
And more ..and more…

We have a lot of quotation about promise. Most are saying that a promise is actually made to be broken.
It is assumed that many people cannot keep their promise.

Let’s read these quotes:
Promises are like babies:  easy to make, hard to deliver.  ~Author Unknown
Eggs and oaths are easily broken.  ~Danish Proverb
Promises and pie crusts are made to be broken.  ~Jonathan Swift
One must have a good memory to be able to keep the promises that one makes.  ~Friedrich Nietzsche

It is easy to make a promise, but it is very hard to make it real.
It is proven from time to time, in all country, in all era

Better not saying a promise if you are not sure about making it happened, because a promise is a debt.
 Promise little and do much.  ~Hebrew Proverb

We will be valued on our words.
Once you break it, nobody will trust to you anymore

Not the maker of plans and promises, but rather the one who offers faithful service in small matters.  This is the person who is most likely to achieve what is good and lasting. 
For every promise, there is price to pay.  ~Jim Rohn
