Famous quotes containing the word lend:

    The holy passion of friendship is of so sweet and steady and loyal and enduring a nature that it will last through a whole lifetime, if not asked to lend money.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Raise your eyes and count the small gang of your oppressors who are only strong through the blood they suck from you and through your arms which you lend them unwillingly.
    Georg Büchner (1813–1837)

    Moneys is your suit.
    What should I say to you? Should I not say,
    “Hath a dog money? Is it possible
    A cur can lend three thousand ducats?” Or
    Shall I bend low and in a bondman’s key,
    With bated breath and whispering humbleness,
    Say this:
    “Fair sir, you spat on me on Wednesday last,
    You spurned me such a day, another time
    You called me dog; and for these courtesies
    I’ll lend you thus much moneys?”
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
