A Quote by Kathy Davis on automobiles, bankers, children, kindness, life, and world

A hundred years from now . . . it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove . . . but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on bankers, direction, seasons, spirit, and time

You would measure time the measureless and the immeasurable. You would adjust your conduct and even direct the course of your spirit according to hours and seasons. Of time you would make a stream upon whose bank you would sit and watch its flowing.

A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on bankers, faith, interest, needs, and privacy

Faith is like private capital, stored in one's own house. It is like a public savings bank or loan office, from which individuals receive assistance in their days of need; but here the creditor quietly takes his interest for himself.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

A Quote by Francis Duffy on bankers, editors, life, newspapers, politicians, soldiers, and war

No soldier starts a war-they only give their lives to it. Wars are started by you and me, by bankers and politicians, newspaper editors, clergymen who are ex-pacifists, and Congressmen with vertebrae of putty. The youngsters yelling in the streets, poor lads, are the ones who pay the price.

Francis Duffy (1871 - 1932)

A Quote by Esther Baldwin York on bankers, confidence, friendship, gold, kindness, love, questions, and sympathy

Someone has said that a friend is a bank of credit on which we can draw supplies of confidence, counsel, sympathy, help, and love. And that is true, for if you have a genuine friend, you possess riches greater than silver or gold. Which, of course, brings us to the other side of the question: Are you, and am I, the kind of friend that others can treasure?
