Lending Quotes

These are some of the best 'Lending' quotations and sayings.

A good man showeth favor, and lendeth.

Better give a shilling than lend and lose half a crown.

If you lend a person money it becomes lost for any purposes of your own. - When you ask for it back again, you find a friend made an enemy by your own kindness. - If you begin to press still further, either you must part with what you have lent or else you must lose your friend.

Lend not beyond thy ability, nor refuse to lend out of thy ability; especially when it will help others more than it can hurt thee. If thy debtor be honest and capable, thou hast thy money again, if not with increase, with praise. If he prove insolvent do not ruin him to get that which it will not ruin thee to lose; for thou art but a steward, and another is thy owner, master, and judge.

Neither a borrower nor a lender be: For loan oft loses both itself and friend, And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

Whatever you lend let it be your money, and not your name. Money you may get again, and, if not, you may contrive to do without it; name once lost you cannot get again, and, if you cannot contrive to do without it, you had better never have been born.
