Famous quotes containing the word credit:

    Laws remain in credit not because they are just, but because they are laws. That is the mystic foundation of their authority; they have no other.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    The thief steals from himself. The swindler swindles himself. For the real price is knowledge and virtue, whereof wealth and credit are signs. These signs, like paper money, may be counterfeited or stolen, but that which they represent, namely, knowledge and virtue, cannot be counterfeited or stolen.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Bless my soul, Sir, will you Britons not credit that an American can be a gentleman, & have read the Waverly Novels, tho every digit may have been in the tar-bucket?
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
