Debt

I ran across these quotes concerning debt on the comments section of a recent news article. They were posted by someone with the handle “thinkingman1”.  I thought they were very good and so I am posting them here.

“Debt is the slavery of the free”- Publilius Syrus

“Debts and lies are generally mixed together” -Francois Rabelais

“I must say, I never expected to see the day where I would be talking about anything other than reducing the debt, I’m running into the tyranny of zero, which is where you can’t reduce (the debt) any more” -Alan Greenspan (the slave master himself)

“A small debt produces a debtor; a large one, an enemy” – Publilius Syrus

“Debt is the fatal disease of republics, the first thing and the mightiest to undermine governments and corrupt the people”-Wendell Phillips
