Charles Lamb

A Quote by Charles Lamb on borrowing, business, character, debt, friendship, good, money, patience, and people

I am accounted by some people as a good man. How cheap that character is acquired! Pay your debts, don't borrow money, nor twist your kitten's neck off, nor disturb a congregation, etc., your business is done. I know things of myself, which would make every friend I have fly me as a plague patient.
