Loan Quotations

What Wall Street and credit card companies are doing is really not much different from what gangsters and loan sharks do who make predatory loans. While the bankers wear three-piece suits and don't break the knee caps of those who can't pay back, they still are destroying people's lives.
Bernie Sanders

Never expect a loan to a friend to be paid back if you want to keep that friend.
Bryant H. McGill

We developed microfinance to fight loan sharks - I was telling people don't go to loan sharks - not trying to take advantage and make money for myself. I would be a junior loan shark if I did... It is not a panacea.
Muhammad Yunus

We have lost that which has made us great over the generations, and that is the sense of individual and personal responsibility that we can come up, we can pursue our dreams and our aspirations and we won't be blocked by government regulation, by the inability to get a loan as a small business to make our dreams come true.
Jon Huntsman, Jr.

Our abode in this world is transitory, our life therein is but a loan, our breaths are numbered and our indolence is manifest.
