English Synonyms and Antonyms
Allegiance is the obligation of fidelity and obedience that an individual owes to his government or sovereign, in return for the protection he receives. The feudal uses of these words have mostly passed away with the state of society that gave them birth; but their origin still colors their present meaning. A patriotic American feels an enthusiastic loyalty to the republic; he takes, on occasion, an oath of allegiance to the government, but his loyalty will lead him to do more than mere allegiance could demand; he pays homage to God alone, as the only king and lord, or to those principles of right that are spiritually supreme; he acknowledges the duty of obedience to all rightful authority; he resents the idea of subjection. Fealty is becoming somewhat rare, except in elevated or poetic style. We prefer to speak of the faithfulness rather than the fealty of citizen, wife, or friend.
We honor the allegiance of the citizen to the government; the government has a right to allegiance from the citizen.

How to use devotion in a sentence?
For a mother the project of raising a boy is the most fulfilling project she can hope for. She can watch him, as a child, play the games she was not allowed to play; she can invest in him her ideas, aspirations, ambitions, and values -- or whatever she has left of them; she can watch her son, who came from her flesh and whose life was sustained by her work and devotion, embody her in the world. So while the project of raising a boy is fraught with ambivalence and leads inevitably to bitterness, it is the only project that allows a woman to be -- to be through her son, to live through her son.
Hypocrisy will serve as well To propagate a church as zeal; As persecution and promotion Do equally advance devotion: So round white stones will serve, they say, As well as eggs, to make hens lay.
It is a remembrance of who Joann Christy was, and it is hard to separate the good that she did and her devotion to her Christian faith.
My true friends have always given me that supreme proof of devotion, a spontaneous aversion for the man I loved.
Wonderful beauty of a Kazakh woman Your beauty is capable of boiling libido, a riot of hormones, dizziness from violent passion, irrepressible lust, the heat of the thirst for love. She completely controls the male genital organ, and submits to eternal devotion. My mind and heart bows to your beauty. The soul feels eternal happiness, endless love and inexhaustible joy. I am irresistibly drawn to you. I am doomed to love only you.
