debt

A Quote by Philip D. Reed on action, america, constitution, debt, economics, freedom, government, honor, people, respect, separation, speech, understanding, and worship

A PRIMER OF AMERICAN SELF-GOVERNMENT I. Understand, honor and preserve the Constitution of the United States. 2. Keep forever separate and distinct the legislative, executive and judicial functions of government. 3. Remember that government belongs to the people, is inherently inefficient, and that its activities should be limited to those which government alone can perform. 4. Be vigilant for freedom of speech, freedom of worship, and freedom of action. 5. Cherish the system of Free Enterprise which made America great. 6. Respect thrift and economy, and beware of debt. 7. Above all, let us be scrupulous in keeping our word and in respecting the rights of others.

A Quote by Oliver Goldsmith on day and debt

The whitewash'd wall, the nicely sanded floor, The varnish'd clock that click'd behind the door; The chest, contriv'd a double debt to pay,- A bed by night, a chest of drawers by day.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on debt, eternity, faith, gifts, immortality, life, and mortality

Comparatively, we are so much quicker to return favors and to pay our debts to mortals - and we should be responsive and grateful. But what of Him who gave us mortal life itself, who will ere long give us all immortality, and who proffers to the faithful the greatest gift of all, eternal life? We are poor bookkeepers, indeed!

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on giving, receiving, debt, generosity, gifts, gratitude, and abundance

And you receivers - and you are all receivers - assume no weight of gratitude, lest you lay a yoke upon yourself and upon him who gives.
Rather rise together with the giver on his gifts as on wings;
For to be overmindful of your debt, is to doubt his generosity who has the free hearted earth for mother, and God for father.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)
