Famous quotes containing the word credit:

    My credit now stands on such slippery ground
    That one of two bad ways you must conceit me,
    Either a coward or a flatterer.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    If you want to be on good terms with everyone in this world, sell goods on credit and never ask for payment.
    Chinese proverb.

    The solar system has no anxiety about its reputation, and the credit of truth and honesty is as safe; nor have I any fear that a skeptical bias can be given by leaning hard on the sides of fate, of practical power, or of trade, which the doctrine of Faith cannot down-weigh.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
