Famous quotes containing the word lend:

    Why should all virtue work in one and the same way? Why should all give dollars? It is very inconvenient to us country folk, and we do not think any good will come of it. We have not dollars; merchants have; let them give them. Farmers will give corn; poets will sing; women will sew; laborers will lend a hand; the children will bring flowers.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    But Lancelot mused a little space;
    He said, “She has a lovely face;
    God in his mercy lend her grace,
    The Lady of Shalott.”
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    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)
