Credit Quotes

I do not believe that the men who served in uniform in Vietnam have been given the credit they deserve. It was a difficult war against an unorthodox enemy.

William Westmoreland

When our vices leave us, we flatter ourselves with the credit of having left them.

La Rochefoucauld

Credit is a system whereby a person who can not pay gets another person who can not pay to guarantee that he can pay.

Charles Dickens

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat

Teddy Roosevelt

Nobody would take checks from Indians, nobody would give them any credit, and nobody would let them drink in the bars. There was a rudeness, a brusqueness, with which the Indians were treated constantly. At a very young age, that had entered my consciousness.

James Welch

Credit buying is much like being drunk. The buzz happens immediately and gives you a lift.... The hangover comes the day after.

Joyce Brothers

Procrastination is like a credit card: it's a lot of fun until you get the bill.

Christopher Parker

More and more banks are installing credit-card fraud-protection systems and those systems are getting increasingly sensitive.

Alan Brill

There is a spiritual hunger in the world today - and it cannot be satisfied by better cars on longer credit terms

Adlai E. Stevenson

But in science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not to the man to whom the idea first occurs.

Francis Darwin

A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.

John C. Maxwell

Religion often gets credit for curing rascals when old age is the real medicine.

Austin O'Malley

Critics search for ages for the wrong word, which, to give them credit, they eventually find.

Peter Ustinov

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
