The sum which two married people owe to one another defies calculation. It is an infinite debt, which can only be discharged through all eternity.
I go on the principle that a public debt is a public curse, and in a Republican Government a greater curse than any other.
He who wants Lent to seem short should contract a debt to be repaid at Easter.
To the generous mind the heaviest debt is that of gratitude, when it is not in our power to repay it.
Worrying is like paying on a debt that may never come due
Simply put, unsustainable debt is helping to keep too many poor countries and poor people in poverty.
If you help others, you will be helped, perhaps tomorrow, perhaps in one hundred years, but you will be helped. Nature must pay off the debt. It is a mathematical law and all life is mathematics.
The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance
If someone takes your time, it is the only debt that can't be repaid.
If one wants to get out and stay out of debt he should act his wage.
A small debt produces a debtor; a large one, an enemy
By issuing our own money we can eliminate all income taxes and employment taxes and the national debt would cease to exist.
In many instances, marriage vows would be more accurate if the phrase were changed to 'Until debt do us part'.
Praise in the beginning is agreeable enough, and we receive it as a favor; but when it comes in great quantities, we regard it only as a debt, which nothing but our merit could extort.
We must not take our economic strength for granted. That's why it is critical that we continue to pay down the debt -- to keep inflation and interest rates low.
To me naturalization is just an obvious extension of what somebody in my position would desire anyway the right to vote and to legally participate in society the same as any other citizen. I am already as entrenched as any other citizen: I have a house and land with a debt of a quarter-million dollars; with a thirty-year loan I really cannot leave Japan Moreover, naturalization has knock-on benefits that suit a person with my personality. It will enable me to stand on my rights (yes, more than I do now!) with renewed vigor because I will indeed have more rights, as well as a firmer ground to demand even more (I can except myself from, say, this 'as a foreigner, you are a guest in our country so shut up' bullshit). And dare I say it? I would be able to participate in politics as a candidate if I so choose).
During the last 100 days we have seen an orgy. It would make any local smorgasbord embarrassed if you looked at this spending orgy we've seen in Washington. So it's no surprise our national debt is now soaring over $11 trillion dollars.  The government spent its wad by April 26. Every dime government spends after April 26 throughout the rest of this fiscal year is borrowed money.
I like my players to be married and in debt. That's the way you motivate them.
You cannot take away freedom to protect it, you cannot destroy the free market to save it, and you cannot uphold freedom of speech by silencing those with whom you disagree. To take rights away to defend them or to spend your way out of debt defies common sense.
Choice depends on the freedom to choose and if you are shackled with debt you dont have the freedom to choose.
People in debt become hopeless and hopeless people dont vote. They always say that that everyone should vote but I think that if the poor in Britain or the United States turned out and voted for people that represented their interests there would be a real democratic revolution.
I have included among the Enlightenment philosophers men like Machiavelli, Bacon, Montaigne, Hobbes, Descartes, Spinoza and Locke, along with the eighteenth-century thinkers like Montesquieu, Diderot and Voltaire, whose teachings are usually held to constitute the Enlightenment, because these latter were quite explicit about their debt to the originators of what the Enlightenment was in large measure only popularizing.
