1. To sign back; to return by a formal act; to yield to
another; to surrender; -- said especially of office or

of the wishes or will, or of something valued; -- also
often used reflexively.

Syn: To abdicate; surrender; submit; leave; relinquish;
forego; quit; forsake; abandon; renounce.
Usage: Resign, Relinquish. To resign is to give up, as if
breaking a seal and yielding all it had secured;
hence, it marks a formal and deliberate surrender. To
relinquish is less formal, but always implies
abandonment and that the thing given up has been long
an object of pursuit, and, usually, that it has been
prized and desired. We resign what we once held or
considered as our own, as an office, employment, etc.
We speak of relinquishing a claim, of relinquishing
some advantage we had sought or enjoyed, of
relinquishing seme right, privilege, etc. “Men are
weary with the toil which they bear, but can not find
it in their hearts to relinquish it.” --Steele. See
