We have lost that which has made us great over the generations, and that is the sense of individual and personal responsibility that we can come up, we can pursue our dreams and our aspirations and we won't be blocked by government regulation, by the inability to get a loan as a small business to make our dreams come true. -Jon Huntsman, Jr.

I'm a neurotic Jew who doesn't want loans. I can't even carry a balance on my credit card without having a nervous breakdown. -Duff Goldman

At the heart of banking is a suicidal strategy. Banks take money from the public or each other on call, skim it for their own reward and then lock the rest up in volatile, insecure and illiquid loans that at times they cannot redeem without public aid. -James Buchan

And I think it's that time. And I think if you just step aside and Mr. Romney can kind of take over. You can maybe still use a plane. Though maybe a smaller one. Not that big gas guzzler you are going around to colleges and talking about student loans and stuff like that. -Clint Eastwood

Quite frankly, Barack Obama knows what it's like to pay a mortgage and student loans. He knows what it's like to watch a beloved family member in a medical crisis and worry that treatment is out of reach. Barack Obama knows our struggles. And, my friends, he shares our values. -Ted Strickland

The higher amount you put into higher education, at the federal level particularly, the more the price of higher education rises. It's the dog that never catches its tail.

In China, remember, the the banks are arms of state policy. They loan because the local party official or regional party official tells them we need a new stadium. They are instruments of state policy. -James Chanos

The lack of available credit and loans is having a severe impact on small businesses in particular, but also their suppliers and the bigger companies too. -Lucy Powell

Too-easy credit and millions of bad loans made during the U.S. housing bubble paved the way for the financial calamity and Great Recession that followed. Today, by contrast, credit is too tight. Mortgage loans are particularly hard to get, creating a problem for the housing market and the broader economy. -Mark Zandi

It's time to pull the bandage off America's foreclosure problem. The economy is ready to emerge from its recent dark period, but to make it happen soon we need to speed the resolution of millions of troubled home loans. Six years have passed since the crisis began, yet instead of accelerating, foreclosures have slowed. -Mark Zandi

It is hard to be enthusiastic about the economy's prospects when house prices are falling: Households spend less, small business owners can't use homes as collateral for loans and local governments are forced to cut jobs and programs as property-tax revenue disappears. -Mark Zandi

Indeed, the FHA was born out of the Great Depression, which was also caused in significant part by a foreclosure crisis. Mortgages in the early 1930s were mostly three- to five-year 'bullet' loans, which did not amortize and were due in full at maturity. -Mark Zandi

The average credit score of today's FHA borrowers is higher than the average American household with a score. As it becomes more costly and difficult to get a FHA loan, loans from private mortgage lenders will become more attractive and their market share will grow. -Mark Zandi

Don't reward bad behavior. It is one of the first rules of parenting. During the financial cataclysm of 2008, we said it differently. When we bailed out banks that had created their own misfortune, we called it a 'moral hazard,' because the bailout absolved the bank's bad acts and created an incentive for it to make the same bad loans again. -Eliot Spitzer

For-profit higher education is today a booming industry, feeding on the student loans handed out to the desperate. -Thomas Frank

In the subprime mortgage industry, bankers handed out iffy loans like candy at a parade because such loans meant revenue and, hence, bonuses for executives in the here-and-now. -Thomas Frank

The S.B.A. does not lend directly to businesses, but instead backs loans to encourage banks to invest in small businesses as part of a nearly $90 billion portfolio. -Karen Mills

The 2009 stimulus law got the ball rolling, allowing the agency to reduce and eliminate fees and raise loan guarantees to 90 percent of the total. I knew that we had the opportunity to use S.B.A. products to fill that gap in a rapid manner, as we ended up doing in the Recovery Act. -Karen Mills

We don't want to give a business that is not going to come through the troubled waters a loan that they can't pay back. -Karen Mills

We were able in the Recovery Act to get a program where we increased our loan guarantees to 90 percent. Because we had that program, a bank wouldn't have to take that much risk. -Karen Mills

The Federal Reserve needs to provide small businesses in America with the same low-interest loans it gave to foreign banks. -Bernie Sanders

When we die our money, fame, and honors will be meaningless. We own nothing in this world. Everything we think we own is in reality only being loaned to us until we die. And on our deathbed at the moment of death, no one but God can save our souls. -Michael Huffington

What Wall Street and credit card companies are doing is really not much different from what gangsters and loan sharks do who make predatory loans. While the bankers wear three-piece suits and don't break the knee caps of those who can't pay back, they still are destroying people's lives. -Bernie Sanders

I had loans in law school. -Ken Starr

Engineering undergraduates should not be charged fees. They should receive grants, not student loans, and the government will get the money back long-term from increased exports. -James Dyson

When the time came for me to go to college, there was only one scholarship that my high school offered at the time and I didn't win that one, but that didn't stop me. I went on to college anyway. I worked my way through it and paid my student loans for 11 years. -Chandra Wilson

In London – and forget those extra public pressures on politicians – the lovely old Sloane world of manor houses simply hasn't cut it since Big Bang in 1986, the point at which Mrs. Thatcher really started to achieve her ambition to make this country more like America – its ambition, economy, it's very tangible measures of success. -Peter York

Girls like Diana Spencer, armed with nothing more than a guinea-pig-rearing certificate, proud to say in that old Sloane way that she was 'as thick as two short planks,' became the exception as girls from Benenden and Downe House started to fast-track towards the City and law, consultancy, media and the arts. -Peter York

By the late Nineties, we had become a more visual nation. Big-money taste moved to global standards – new architecture, design and show-off contemporary art. The Sloane domestic aesthetic – symmetry, class symbolism and brown furniture – became as unfashionable as it had been hot in the early Eighties. -Peter York

Prince William looks good in uniform and Man-at-Hackett black and white tie (he has grown up wearing it constantly); less certain in his suits, which sometimes look borderline archaic; and variable in casual. But completely comfortable in the Sloane uniform of non-designer jeans and chocolate-brown suede loafers. He'll look fine in Boden. -Peter York

The White Company offers its loyalists an altogether better, whiter world. The White people have edited out any colours that aren't white, off-white, milk chocolate, grey, taupe or black. They can't be doing with Johnnie Boden's cheery Sloane jokes, his spots and stripes, his occasional 'if it's me, it's U' loud colours. -Peter York

I strongly support extending current student loan interest rates and increasing the college tuition tax credit for students and their families. -Scott Howell

The vast majority of debt that Anglo maintains is owed is strenuously disputed. However, I cannot now pay those loans which are due, following Anglo taking control of the Quinn Group of companies, which I and a loyal team spent a lifetime building. -Sean Quinn

By the time of the '90s boom, CEOs had become superheroes, accorded celebrity treatment and followed with a kind of slavish scrutiny that Alfred P. Sloan could never have imagined. -James Surowiecki

Making loans and fighting poverty are normally two of the least glamorous pursuits around, but put the two together and you have an economic innovation that has become not just popular but downright chic. The innovation – microfinance – involves making small loans to poor entrepreneurs, usually in developing countries. -James Surowiecki

Do you lend books and DVDs to people? If so, don't you always regret it? All my life I have forced books on to people who have subsequently forgotten all about it. Meanwhile, on my shelves sit many orphaned books loaned to me over the years by trusting, innocent souls – some as long ago as the Seventies. -Lynne Truss

I can't tell you how many times I've had conversations with politicians who've done something morally reprehensible but not indictable, yet still think they should be able to stay in office. The office isn't a 'right.' It's a kind of loan. -Gail Collins

The whole student loan thing drives me completely nuts. If it wasn't possible for 18-year-olds to sign themselves up for tens of thousands of dollars in debt in order to pay their college bills, the state governments wouldn't have found it so politically easy to cut taxpayer support for public colleges and universities. -Gail Collins

There's more student debt than credit card debt! Everywhere I go, I run into young people trying to build careers while they keep shelling out money on their education loans. If the economy is looking for a new generation of home-buyers, I can't imagine they'll get it from these folks. -Gail Collins

The invention of the micro-loan was a big surprise to me. Who would have guessed loans of less than $20 made to poor people in undeveloped countries could create thriving local economies? And, even more surprisingly, that they more reliably pay off their debts than the wealthy of the world. -Joel A. Barker

In the old days, when you took out a mortgage, it was probably through a local bank or a credit union, and whoever gave you your loan held on to it for life. If you lost your job or got too sick to work and suddenly had trouble making your payments, you could call a human being and work things out. -Matt Taibbi

We have seen the big loan servicers drag their feet in the Obama administration's well-intentioned mortgage modification program. -Sheldon Whitehouse

I can't think of another enterprise other than being a homeowner that can't have its debt restructured in bankruptcy. Corporations can but a homeowner can't? Now with securitization the homeowner can't go to the owner of the loan and work things out. -Eli Broad

American business would be run better today if there was more alignment between CEOs' interest and the company. For example, would the financial crisis of 2008 have occurred if the CEO of Lehman and Morgan Stanley and Goldman and Citibank had to take a very small percentage of every mortgage-backed security… or every loan they made? -Aubrey McClendon

I had three jobs in college. The best day of my life was when I paid off my student loans, on my own. -Jessica Seinfeld

A banker who is allowed to borrow money at X and loan it out at X plus Y will just go crazy and do too much of it if the civilization doesn't have rules that prevent it. -Charlie Munger

Between the Community Redevelopment Act, requiring banks to make what I would call very weak loans, and specific quotas that the Congress imposed on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, that created the market demand that really led to the subprime phenomenon. -Wilbur Ross

Sometimes there are customers who get in difficulty because of situations that are out of their control. These are customers with genuine needs, and the role of the bank is to accommodate these customers, and there is a real need to reschedule the loans of these customers. -Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair

A Fed loan to Lehman Brothers would not have prevented a bankruptcy. -Henry Paulson

Commercial banks are very good for certain businesses, like loans and guarding other people's money. They're not great investors or entrepreneurs. -John Gutfreund

Countries with deficit don't want to pay the bill, and they want to get more loans, and countries with superiority, they don't want to help the countries with problems, and they just want them to tighten their belts. -Sebastian Pinera

As befits Silicon Valley, 'big data' is mostly big hype, but there is one possibility with genuine potential: that it might one day bring loans – and credit histories – to millions of people who currently lack access to them. -Evgeny Morozov

Making loans accessible to millions of the previously unbankable customers is a noble goal. Getting them hooked to such loans isn't. -Evgeny Morozov

Because microfinance is so manageable in terms of the size of the loan, people have made it the cornerstone to lifting women out of poverty. -Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

Microfinance does not require previous experience or loans to the same extent as a small-business loan, so it's easier for women to enter the micro sector. -Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

Where micro-finance focuses on small loans to individual, low-income women, think of Acumen Fund more like a venture capital fund. -Jacqueline Novogratz

We have to change public perception of ex-convicts. Most Canadians don't realize that when you come out of prison, you're a complete pariah. You can't get a car loan or money from a bank to start a business. So most end up back in prison within 24 months. It's just so wrong. We need to fix this problem. -Kevin O'Leary

If you were shopping for a father, you'd have to take out a serious loan to afford mine. He's the best. -Peter DeLuise

My mother was keen that I complete my graduation and never ever wanted me to be in the movies, as my father had made five films that lost money. One of the films he made was 'Agneepath,' which was hugely hyped but underwhelming at the box office, and I remember that my dad had to sell my grandmother's flat to pay off the loan. -Karan Johar

Debt is part of the human condition. Civilization is based on exchanges – on gifts, trades, loans – and the revenges and insults that come when they are not paid back. -Margaret Atwood

I don't think people really do listen. We plug into music, and we have short attention spans. We tend to download individual tracks from iTunes rather than a whole album. We buy music DVDs and watch them once, and then they disappear into a drawer, or we loan them to a friend, and we never watch it again. -Ian Anderson

I'm all in favor of banks that play their part in community endeavors, private individuals looking for loans, people who want to start up a little business, and that's what banks are for. -Ian Anderson

The Tea Partiers don't want all regulations eliminated. They just want laws that can be understood and regulations that aren't going to destroy businesses, or leave deserving veterans without a source for a mortgage loan. -Neal Boortz

The major studios are by and large banks, and they give you what is by and large a loan to make a movie. Like banks, they want their money back plus. -Sean Penn

I founded Grameen Bank to provide loans to those considered traditionally unbankable. Grameen Bank works with the poorest and often illiterate, providing uncollateralized micro-loans for tiny business enterprises by which they can lift themselves and their families out of poverty. -Muhammad Yunus

We developed microfinance to fight loan sharks – I was telling people don't go to loan sharks – not trying to take advantage and make money for myself. I would be a junior loan shark if I did… It is not a panacea. -Muhammad Yunus

Your credit score affects the interest rates you're offered on credit cards and loans, can be used to vet your job application, and in some states may influence your insurance premiums. -Suze Orman

If you can't afford the upkeep of your home, it makes no sense to do a reverse mortgage. You will just end up having to sell eventually when you realize you can't afford the home, and whether you have any equity left after the sale depends on the size of the reverse loan that must be settled. -Suze Orman

The new American dream is one of responsibility. What is the bottom-line number that you're going to be able to pay back toward a student loan responsibly if you're doing it yourself after you have a job? That dictates the amount of money you can borrow. That dictates the school you can go to, if you can even go to a four-year college at all. -Suze Orman

When you collect bad loans… you sure learn a lot about making good ones. You also learn a lot about the power of persuasion, persistence and desperation. -John Stumpf

I learned how to lend money by cleaning up the messes of others who had made loans before me. -John Stumpf

Mr. Obama seeks to federalize large portions of education, beginning with his attempt to nationalize college student loans. -Monica Crowley

Student loan debt is the reason I don't advise students who want to become entrepreneurs to apply to elite, expensive colleges. They can be as successful if they go to a relatively inexpensive public college. -Vivek Wadhwa

If you don't have savings, and your co-founders are as poor as you are, and if Mom and Dad won't loan you money, then your best bet is to find people that know you – your friends. If they, too, won't help, then you're stuck seeking out angel investors. -Vivek Wadhwa

Even if you feel like your debt is just never going to go away, think long and hard before declaring bankruptcy. Declaring bankruptcy means that getting a loan for anything will be next to impossible for the next 10 years. -Alexa Von Tobel

For too many years, politicians in Washington have been eager to pledge more hard-earned taxpayer dollars to help deal with the student debt load. But this doesn't sit right with the many Americans who take pride in making fiscally responsible choices and paying off their loans on time. -John Kline

Let's get one thing straight: No one wants Stafford loan interest rates to increase. -John Kline

We simply can't keep providing money from the federal government in the form of subsidized or actual loans and Pell Grants when we don't have the money. -John Kline

Since most American students cannot simply pay their full tuition out of pocket, financing a college education often takes the form of loans, both private and from the government. -Charles B. Rangel

More than ever, a college diploma unlocks economic opportunity, provides students with a wealth of new skills and knowledge, and encourages innovation and growth. But more than ever, it also comes with a mountain of student loan debt. -Mark Pocan

By making college unaffordable and student loans unbearable, we risk deterring our best and brightest from pursuing higher education and securing a good-paying job. -Mark Pocan

I'm willing to fight for Social Security, Medicare, student loans, U.S. jobs, equal pay, progressive taxation and full employment. -Alan Grayson

Bad debt is debt that makes you poorer. I count the mortgage on my home as bad debt, because I'm the one paying on it. Other forms of bad debt are car payments, credit card balances, or other consumer loans. -Robert Kiyosaki

The rising costs of higher education coupled with the stress of paying student loans are putting increasing pressure on students. -Hank Johnson

Students graduating with high debt encounter difficulties in qualifying for home and automobile loans. -Hank Johnson

Any cut to Pell Grants means low-income must take out additional loans or work longer hours – risk factors that increase their odds of dropping out of school. -Hank Johnson

Now, in this U.N. stuff, the commander, although he has troops, they don't really belong to him. They're loaned by the country to the U.N. to be used, but each of these countries provide a contingent commander, a senior guy who communicates directly back to his capital. -Romeo Dallaire

In one month, the Small Business Administration does $1 billion of loans and guarantees for businesses; many of those are women-owned businesses. -Sylvia Mathews Burwell

M.G.M. never really gave me a break. They loaned me out for leading roles but cast me in programme pictures. -Laraine Day

Privacy is a vast subject. Also, remember that privacy and convenience is always a trade-off. When you open a bank account and want to borrow some money, and you want to get a very cheap loan, you'll share all details of your assets because you want them to give you a low interest rate. -Nandan Nilekani

France has not only built a bureaucratic barrier against American culture, it has constructed a notorious intellectual case against it as well. The French spend hundreds of millions of dollars subsidizing film production, extend interest-free loans to designated filmmakers, and have placed quotas not only on imports but on television time. -Tyler Cowen

Manchester United and Liverpool have been bought with huge leverage, and we've got Roman Abramovich at Chelsea who can turn his loans into shares. It is really important for the Premier League to ask itself: if a club is being bought on such a mountain of debt, isn't that a possible recipe for disaster for the future? -Gordon Taylor

We build schools and give government loans and grants to college kids; for those of us who are parents, tuition will often be the last big subsidy we give the children we've raised. -Bill McKibben

The Christian fact is very straightforward: To be a student is a calling. Your parents are setting up accounts to pay the bills, or you are scraping together your own resources and taking out loans, or a scholarship is making college possible. -Stanley Hauerwas

It's a good idea to revitalize community colleges, to cut back, to modify the student loan program so it doesn't go through banks. -Noam Chomsky

Microfinance initiatives are very high-touch models. The loan officer meets with local groups of borrowers every week, they share tips and techniques. There's a lot of training and learning that goes on, which adds to the cost of the model. -Pierre Omidyar

Subsidies and mandates are just two of the privileges that government can bestow on politically connected friends. Others include grants, loans, tax credits, favorable regulations, bailouts, loan guarantees, targeted tax breaks and no-bid contracts. -Charles Koch

I have done a lot of work for affordable housing, rental housing. I understand the rap on me and other liberals is, oh, we push poor people into homeownership. And it's exactly the opposite of the case. We were trying to prevent those kinds of bad loans. -Barney Frank

Nine of 10 whites in Chicago borrow from top-drawer banks and mortgage companies, which the industry calls prime lenders. They lend to people with A credit ratings, making loans at competitive rates. -Bill Dedman

Community groups contend that door-to-door loan sales are often followed by foreclosures. -Bill Dedman

I was obsessed with George Orwell for years. I remember going to the town library and having to put in interlibrary loan requests to get the compilation of his BBC radio pieces. I had to get everything he ever wrote. -Jill Lepore

The Pentagon got fed up with its recruits getting ripped off by payday lenders and in 2007 got Congress to make it illegal to extend such loans to members of the military. But civilians remain fair game. -Timothy Noah

Voters care only that student loans remain freely available and that they cost taxpayers as little as possible. -Timothy Noah

Sloan Gibson is doing a great job. We need to give him more power to terminate employees. -David Jolly

Like many other banks and finance companies, Green Tree used a process called securitization to resell its home loans to outside investors. Green Tree grouped thousands of these small loans into a pool worth hundreds of millions of dollars. -Alex Berenson

Trailer home borrowers, mostly near the bottom of the economic ladder, often default on their loans. -Alex Berenson

Normally, banks record profits on loans only as they are repaid, whether they securitize the loans or hold them on their books. -Alex Berenson

Fannie Mae has traditionally only bought and sold mortgages. But when a loan held by the company goes into foreclosure, Fannie Mae gains ownership of the underlying property until it is resold to new investors. -Charles Duhigg

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac buy mortgages from banks and other lenders, providing those financial institutions with capital to make new loans. -Charles Duhigg

As the United States has become an older nation, reverse mortgages have grown into a $20-billion-a-year industry, with elderly homeowners taking out more than 132,000 such loans in 2007, an increase of more than 270 percent from two years earlier. -Charles Duhigg

Because the fees associated with a reverse mortgage are high, such loans make sense only for borrowers who expect to live in their home for a number of years. -Charles Duhigg

Bankruptcy laws allow companies to smoothly reorganize, but not college graduates burdened by student loans. -Robert Reich

Part of Obamacare eliminated the private sector financial market that engages in giving college student loans. I mean, now the federal government has taken over college student loans, so I sit back and strategically look at this and say this just cannot be happening. -Allen West

The loans I took out for my undergraduate degree were manageable. But my legal education was more expensive, and I paid for it almost entirely through public and private loans. -Marco Rubio

I have no intention of selling any more of the historical Apollo 11 items in my possession for the remainder of my life. I intend to pass a portion of these items on to my children and to loan the most important items for permanent display in suitable museums around the country. -Buzz Aldrin

It's true that monetary policy was too lax for too long, and the government encouraged lending to people who were unlikely to repay their loans. -Paul Singer

Immortality awaits the legislator fortunate enough to have a significant law named after him. Think of Pell grants or Stafford loans for students, Sarbanes-Oxley to regulate Wall Street, or the Hyde Amendment on abortions. -Jim Cooper

Mint's business model became, 'We'll go for free, and then we'll find these savings opportunities for you.' You know, better interest rate on your credit cards, when should you consolidate your student loans, when does it mathematically make sense to refinance your mortgage, and Mint figures all that stuff out for you. -Aaron Patzer

If there were no government-guaranteed student loans, college tuition would be much lower. -Gary Johnson

Families rely on financial services more than ever, but those who need them most – who struggle to make ends meet – too often must contend with sky-high interest rates and tricks and traps buried in the fine print of their loan products. -Elizabeth Warren

We need to hold Wall Street accountable for issuing the kinds of deceptive loans that nearly brought our economy to its knees in 2008. -Elizabeth Warren

We need to align the incentives so that colleges have an incentive to keep down their costs… to graduate students on time with degrees in areas where they're going to be able to get jobs and going to be able to pay back those loans. -Elizabeth Warren

Banks were once places to hold money and were very careful in lending to finance families as they built a future – bought homes, bought cars, took out student loans. -Elizabeth Warren

Rising student-loan debt is an economic emergency. -Elizabeth Warren

Homeowners refinance their loans when interest rates go down. Businesses refinance their loans. -Elizabeth Warren

Every time the U.S. government makes a low-cost loan to someone, it's investing in them. -Elizabeth Warren

If Federal Reserve loans are subsidies, it doesn't show up in the federal budget. -Elizabeth Warren

If you've taken Econ 101, you know that the quantity of money rises only when the banking system makes a net loan. -Kenneth Fisher

If your business had no risk, you could go get a bank loan and call it a day. VCs like risks – without them, venture capital wouldn't exist. But they need to be risks that VCs are good at assessing and managing. -Jose Ferreira

Rather than going through a commercial banking training program, at the first bank I ever worked in, I was the chairman. And it was my own money, so we loaned it out like it was my own money. -Gerald J. Ford

I'm short-selling my house. I have more loans than I can sell the house for. The house will not go into foreclosure. It will be a short sale. I can't afford the house as I once could. -Robert A. Schuller

You can't convince someone else – whether it's a potential employer, a loan officer at the car dealership, or someone you've been crushing on – that you're amazing and terrific if you don't actually think you are. -Sophia Amoruso

Banks will have to win the confidence of their customers through fair dealing, making good loans, and remaining financially healthy. -Ben Bernanke

All the Federal Reserve can do is make loans against collateral. -Ben Bernanke

Deflation can be particularly dangerous when a financial system is shaky, with household and corporate balance sheets in poor shape and banks undercapitalized and heavily burdened with bad loans. -Ben Bernanke

Women didn't go to school when they were young because parents preferred to send their brothers. The women couldn't access loans in their own right because the banks sought the approval of a male dependent. -Joyce Banda

If there were not derivatives, there would be no bank loans at all today, because people want to get fixed-rate 30-year loans, but banks don't want to keep 30-year loans on their books. -Jeff Greene

Our approach to banking is very different from the traditional banks or even some of the new banks. We do not necessarily go out and write single-cheque, large-ticket loans. -Uday Kotak

If you must know, my parents came from pretty hardscrabble backgrounds in the southern Midwest. I certainly didn't grow up poor, but I did spend my 20s and early 30s juggling temp jobs and choking on massive student-loan debt. -Meghan Daum

There's a reason that there are oodles of young Aussies, Germans, Japanese, even Chinese backpackers traipsing around the world. They are unencumbered by debilitating student loans. No such luck for the American Theater Arts major with $120,000 in loans. -J. Maarten Troost

The Senate voted 59 to 39 in favor of an amendment I offered to the Budget Resolution calling on the Fed to tell the American people who they loaned $2.2 trillion to and how much each bank received. -Bernie Sanders

Citigroup, Bank of America, and JP Morgan Chase should not be permitted to charge consumers 25- to 30-percent interest on their credit cards, especially while these banks received over $4 trillion in loans from the Federal Reserve. -Bernie Sanders

After the Versailles treaty, the U.S. could have chosen to become a global economic loan shark, but we didn't, and let a lot of the tab slide. So not all lending and borrowing is bad. -Louis Navellier

I worked for twenty-some years with no capital, so I never had any liquidity. Managing my loans alone wouldn't do it, and working hard twenty-four hours a day seven days a week alone wouldn't do it. You have to be properly capitalized. -Bob McNair

The American Dream is not being dependent on the federal government for your health care, for your automobile, for your college education, for your student loan on and on and on. -Marsha Blackburn

When you're working on a play like 'Sloane,' that play works; you don't have to worry about that. When you're working on a new play like 'Little Dog,' you have no clue if the play works. You're exploring. -Scott Ellis

The problem in a lot of low-income countries is that people take out loans to go and get degrees, which are then irrelevant in the job market. -Leila Janah

Through my studies, I became increasingly disillusioned with the international aid system. I think we systematically deny poor people the chance to engage as equals in the global economic order. At best, we give them handouts or tiny loans and hope they will suffer a bit less from extreme poverty. We don't view them as equals. -Leila Janah

There's a laundry list of reasons why not to borrow from your 401(k). While the money is on loan, it's not working for you – and if you leave your job, you'll have to pay it back in 60 days or treat it as a taxable withdrawal. -Jean Chatzky

Unlike other loans, a reverse mortgage doesn't have to be repaid until the borrower moves out of the home or passes away. -Jean Chatzky

If your appraisal comes back too low – you don't have at least 10% equity for a conforming loan or 20% for a jumbo loan – you might not be able to refinance at all, at least with a loan that's packaged and sold to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. That means you may have to pay a much higher rate. -Jean Chatzky

Getting a tax refund is nice, but having more money year-round is better. If you get a chunk of change from the IRS, you're giving the government an interest-free loan – not something they, or any bank, would ever give you. Instead, change your withholding so you get a little extra in each paycheck. -Jean Chatzky

You can refi your car loan just like you can refi your mortgage. It's even easier and less expensive. There's no appraisal process, and fees are minimal for a new car title. A couple of caveats: Most lenders require that the car be less than five years old and have a minimum loan balance of $7,500. -Jean Chatzky

Debt certainly isn't always a bad thing. A mortgage can help you afford a home. Student loans can be a necessity in getting a good job. Both are investments worth making, and both come with fairly low interest rates. -Jean Chatzky

I've never been a fan of loans between relatives or friends. They can divide relationships. -Jean Chatzky

If I'm a bank, and I'm making risky loans, I have an incentive, if I can, to make those loans using other people's money: in other words, to make highly leveraged loans. -Eric Maskin

When a bank calls in a loan, it obviously hurts the customer in question. But it also adversely affects other banks that have lent to this borrower. They are now less likely to be repaid and so can't as readily lend to their own customers. -Eric Maskin

If banks anticipate government will come to the rescue should the credit market go badly awry, they may make loans that would otherwise be imprudent, e.g. subprime loans with little prospect of repayment. -Eric Maskin

I can ask for a £25,000 advance, but then you spend a year writing the book, and £25,000 is a loan against sales, and you can easily spend five years earning out. So that's £25,000 for six years. -Mal Peet

There was no measure that required greater caution or more severe scrutiny than one to impose taxes or raise a loan, be the form what it may. I hold that government has no right to do either, except when the public service makes it imperiously necessary, and then only to the extent that it requires. -John C. Calhoun

It is a fundamental rule with me not to vote for a loan or tax bill till I am satisfied it is necessary for the public service, and then not if the deficiency can be avoided by lopping off unnecessary objects of expenditure or the enforcement of an exact and judicious economy in the public disbursements. -John C. Calhoun

What is a permanent loan but a mortgage upon the wealth and industry of the country? It is the only form of indebtedness, as experience has shown, by which heavy and durable encumbrance can be laid upon the community. -John C. Calhoun

My father, born in Colorado, met my mother, born in Switzerland, when he went into the finance company where she worked and asked for a loan. -Susan Straight

I didn't have any bridesmaids. Instead, one friend did my hair, another did my makeup, and a third loaned me her shimmering Jimmy Choo wedges! -Keltie Knight

Every regulatory speech on derivatives takes a bow to their hedging 'benefits.' Less publicly, regulators pay their respects to derivative profits, a blessed relief from the banks' troubled loans to less-developed countries, highly leveraged companies, and real estate swingers. -Carol Loomis

In 1980, aided by $1.5 billion in loan guarantees from the U.S. government and his own pitchman routines on television, Lee Iacocca brought Chrysler back from the abyss. -Carol Loomis

One grave and fundamental Keynesian error is to persist in regarding the interest rate as a contract rate on loans instead of the price spreads between stages of production. The former, as we have seen, is only the reflection of the latter. -Murray Rothbard

Never ask for small loans. -Aristotle Onassis

The Huffingtonpost.com does not pay its writers. Tina Brown's thedailybeast.com does pay its writers. You have to be paid because this is not a hobby. You have to keep that standard. You can't ask grandpa to loan you money because you have to go to Afghanistan. I walked the picket line for that to continue. -Pete Hamill

In the 1950s, when I was hanging around Sullivan's Gym and the Gramercy Gym, there were fixed fights. Mob guys like Frankie Carbo and Blinky Palermo had taken over the sport; one lightweight champion loaned his title to others at least twice; the welterweight division was a slag heap. -Pete Hamill

Students can spend their money better than government can. It should not require a federal loan and decades of debt for students to get a college degree. Price limits access – plain and simple. -Rick Scott

What happens once you get a felony conviction? Now you are entering this American caste system where you can't get a job, you can't get a loan, you can't get a Pell grant, you can't get public housing. -Cory Booker

When I went back to New Hampshire after graduating from law school, my plan was to go work for a private firm because I had to pay some student loans off and make money and really just be in the private practice of law. Which can be very rewarding. -Kelly Ayotte

Why do we have financial crises? Why do banks lose money? If history is any guide, it hasn't often been the result of speculative bets. It has been the result of banks making loans to individuals and businesses who can't pay them back. -Andrew Ross Sorkin

Peer-to-peer lenders originally sought to attract retail investors to its loan marketplace, but the lack of high-returning assets elsewhere in the market has made these platforms increasingly attractive to major asset managers and hedge funds. -Kayla Tausche

When SoFi launched in 2011, it focused squarely on the burgeoning student loan market – a market that, unlike housing, had no viable option to refinance both federal and private student loans from higher interest-rate eras. -Kayla Tausche

An improving credit landscape means fewer loans are delinquent – and fewer people are needed to service these loans. -Kayla Tausche

Up until 1920, women couldn't vote. Until 1974, married women couldn't get their own credit cards or, in some cases, their own loans. Basically, the husband's professional, social, and economic identity covered the individual identity of the wife. -Rebecca Traister

With 6 kids, I still pay off my student loans. I still pay my mortgage. I drive a used minivan. If you think I'm living high off the hog, I've got one paycheck. -Sean Duffy

We have to look at loan forgiveness to incentivise young people to pursue degrees in areas where we know we need help. -Elizabeth Esty

Unfortunately, this will have a ripple effect in the economy. People carrying heavy student-loan debt won't buy houses, start families, or start businesses. This will hurt the future economy. -Elizabeth Esty

As someone who has owned a small business in the past, I understand how difficult it can be to get a loan. -Tony Cardenas

All of those loan programs that the federal government administers have flaws. -Bill Flores

If lenders are forced to scale back student lending because private student loans are subject to bankruptcy discharge, many students will be denied access to higher education. -Trent Franks

Oddly enough, government policy helped get the fast food outlets into the city. Very well-intentioned small business administration loans to encourage minority business ownership. The easiest business to get into is opening a fast-food franchise in the inner city. -Michael Pollan

As a minority, no sooner do you learn to polish and cherish one chip on your shoulder than it's taken off you and swapped for another. The jewellery of your struggles is forever on loan, like the Koh-i-Noor diamond in the crown jewels. -Riz Ahmed

I am disappointed that Senator Ayotte has voted repeatedly for deep cuts in Pell Grants that would make college more expensive for thousands of New Hampshire students and voted against allowing young people to refinance their student loans. -Maggie Hassan

What you see is what you get, and the majority of people in my life that loan me clothes know that they've never seen me in a suit. -Brantley Gilbert

It's wrong to rob banks, yeah, but is it right for banks to loan people money, knowing full well they can't pay it back? -Jeff Bridges

We've become a debtor nation. I don't mean just on fixed-loan terms, but we own increasingly less abroad than is owned from abroad here. -Paul Samuelson

I think my mom and dad both wanted to get across to me that… I obviously grew up with great privilege and was very lucky and was able to afford college and not have student loans, and they would pay for college, but beyond that, it would be up to me to make a living. -Anderson Cooper

Under Bill Clinton's HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo, Community Reinvestment Act regulators gave banks higher ratings for home loans made in 'credit-deprived' areas. Banks were effectively rewarded for throwing out sound underwriting standards and writing loans to those who were at high risk of defaulting. -Lawrence Kudlow

It has long been said the only things in life that are certain are death and taxes. Automatic enrollment for insurance of 401k loans would add an additional certainty. Fewer Americans would suffer the unnecessary loss of retirement savings due to unanticipated and untimely misfortune in an already stressful time of need. -Elaine Chao

The Hungarian interest is that, if necessary, we should make loan agreements with the IMF on a regular basis. -Viktor Orban

I think our model is sustainable. If all schools operated like Liberty and charged what we charge, there wouldn't be a student loan problem in America. -Jerry Falwell, Jr.

Starting in late 2007, faced with acute financial market distress, the Federal Reserve created programs to keep credit flowing to households and businesses. The loans extended under those programs helped stabilize the financial system. -Janet Yellen

We were the first bank to start a loan modification at IndyMac and had a very good record of working with the regulators. -Steve Mnuchin

The most troubling loan we had was actually to the 'Octomom'. That was a terrible situation, and we worked very, very hard to move her to another home that they could afford. -Steve Mnuchin

I had begun to worry about the housing market back in 2003, when lenders first resurrected interest-only mortgages, loosening their credit standards to generate a greater volume of loans. Throughout 2004, I had watched as these mortgages were offered to more and more subprime borrowers – those with the weakest credit. -Michael Burry

Sometimes sugarcane takes about 15 months to grow, and hence it is inappropriate to ask farmers to pay their crop loans in 12 months. -Sharad Pawar

We've been in the business of regional banking, and we understand what it is to make loans, and that's the engine of growth to small and medium sized business. -Steve Mnuchin

I ran a 'loan modification machine.' -Steve Mnuchin

I think I had set-backs, but I still always had that belief that I was going to play for Tottenham Hotspur. Even when I went out on loan to clubs, it was always to come back and be a Spurs player. -Harry Kane

I came to cinema for money. I had to settle a loan of Rs 10 lakh. I had no other go, so I thought I'd try my luck in films. I was earning Rs 25,000 at that time. It was not even enough for my family. -Vijay Sethupathi

I hope that basketball gains momentum and kids understand that you can actually make a living from it. Not just the N.B.A. You can get a scholarship, a free degree – like, no student loan you have to pay off. That's huge in life. Once they realize that in New Zealand, I hope they get inspired. -Steven Adams

I'd always be loaning my sister money, knowing full well I wasn't going to get it back. But she had the kids, and that paid me back. -Paula Pell

Money can make people look at you in strange ways. You get phone calls from people you haven't spoken with in a long time, and they'll leave a message saying, 'Do me a favor, call me back. I have something I want to ask you.' I'm not going to answer those calls, because there's always something behind it, like a loan. -Ray Allen

We spend our way to the poorhouse. We buy giant TVs and iPads. Our children wear nice clothes thanks to high-interest credit cards and payday loans. We purchase homes we don't need, refinance them for more spending money, and declare bankruptcy, often leaving them full of garbage in our wake. Thrift is inimical to our being. -J. D. Vance

We never did these kinds of loans that really started this mess, the subprime loans. We just never got into that business. We were enticed a lot of times to do so by a lot of Wall Street-type players, but I, frankly, never understood some of this stuff. -Dan Gilbert

Every loan that we did in the City of Detroit in the 10 years they studied – between 2005 and 2014 – were conventional FHA, VA loans with average interest rates of 6%. -Dan Gilbert

Except for a handful of banks that just keep a handful of their loans in portfolio, on their balance sheet, every other loan that's originated in the United States – whether from a bank, mortgage company, mortgage broker – is sold into the secondary market. -Dan Gilbert

Though foreign loans are indispensable for the emancipation of the rising capitalist states, they are yet the surest ties by which the old capitalist states maintain their influence, exercise financial control, and exert pressure on the customs, foreign and commercial policy of the young capitalist states. -Rosa Luxemburg

In the Imperialist Era, the foreign loan played an outstanding part as a means for young capitalist countries to acquire independence. -Rosa Luxemburg

I think Sam Smith's dad got a huge loan or something to help his career. Those things can help artists get attention, but I guess my song 'Say You Won't Let Go' proved it's about the song. -James Arthur

After college, I was burdened with student loans to repay, no financial cushion, so I wasn't in a position to bet everything on a creative-writing career – neither the writing-workshop academia life nor the freelance-writer version, trying to scrape by on short stories and house-painting gigs. -Chris Pavone

I'm an executive director at a company which gives out retail loans. -Ravi Subramanian

Keegan-Michael Key and Lindsay Sloane are two of the best, literally, just dramatic actors. -Jessica St. Clair

I am just one of the overwhelming majority of Americans who is responsible and hard-working and at one point in their life benefited greatly from government programs such as student loans, Medicare, and Social Security. -Tammy Duckworth

Student loans, Social Security, and Medicare make a difference in the lives of working families every day, and the conversation that should be taking place is how we can save these programs, not weaken them. -Tammy Duckworth

Payday loans are but one of many financial techniques – from overdraft fees to student loans subsidizing for-profit colleges – specifically designed to pull money from the pockets of the poor. This problem generally goes unrecognized by policy makers. -Matthew Desmond

The real underlying value comes if you can put a company back into a running state and it becomes a successful viable entity if it continues to repay loans. -Chanda Kochhar

Our focus is more on secured retail business like housing and car loans. While we will do some unsecured loans – credit cards and personal loans – we will do it primarily with existing customers. -Chanda Kochhar

When you look at Jerry Sloan teams, they're all very disciplined. They execute well. They play within themselves. -Scottie Pippen

I suffered from some delusion that I wanted to be an English country girl, a Sloane Ranger donning the old Hunter boots and Barbour jacket to slosh around in mud with the Range Rover. -Christine McVie

When borrowers anticipate that politicians might cancel their loans, they stop paying. -Arundhati Bhattacharya

If you look at the international markets, for projects that are capital-intensive, the minute the construction phase is completed and production is supposed to start, normally all these loans get refinanced. -Arundhati Bhattacharya

The global market does not understand the India risk as well as we do, and therefore, we have the arbitrage facility of making better margin on the same set of Indian firms than what we would have made by giving rupee loans. -Chanda Kochhar

I've been able to pay the bills. I've been able to pay off my student loans. I was a homeowner before anything happened in the larger public eye. -Sterling K. Brown

I was an entrepreneur myself and often say that I'm on loan to public service. -John Hickenlooper

Traditional consumer banking will come under extreme pressure as its central deposit-taking and lending functions are challenged by online savings vehicles, crowdfunding, and loan syndicating by such nontraditional competitors as insurance companies, pension and hedge funds. -James P. Gorman

It's a very big world with some very big characters. And, boy, do you have to be able to stand up for yourself when you walk into a working men's club and negotiate a loan. -Judith McKenna

My mother loaned me $1000. The first issue came out at the end of 1953. I knew I needed something original. I had a photographer shoot a 3D feature for the first issue and learned it would cost too much money. When the 3D thing turned out to be too expensive, at that same moment I came across the photos of Marilyn Monroe. -Hugh Hefner

Once upon a time, if you were going to get a loan from me, I would have had to look at your file, and I would have to make a decision about whether youre going to get a loan. Maybe we would meet and talk about it. There would be some level of human involvement and human interaction. Now, a lot of this is determined by an algorithm. -Franklin Foer

Our parents helped us, or we wouldn't be here. Lacy Van Zant and my mother used to sign for amps or loan us money to get to the gig or take us in their car. It's just like little sports guys – Little League and football players – whose parents help them. That's why they get good. -Gary Rossington

High school seniors should receive help in how to think about a student loan and how to make sure that the education bought with the loan offers good prospects for repayment. -Richard Thaler

Students are up to their eyeballs in loans, and it's going to get even worse. It's going to be hideous, actually. Students are going to be saddled for life. It's going to put a lot of people off going to college, which is a shame. -Giles Deacon

Redlining went beyond FHA-backed loans and spread to the entire mortgage industry, which was already rife with racism, excluding black people from most legitimate means of obtaining a mortgage. -Ta-Nehisi Coates

Mortgage insurance stocks remained depressed through the end of 2012 amid lingering uncertainty as to whether they had sufficient capital to absorb losses on delinquent loans originated before the crisis. However, as house prices began to recover, losses started to decline. -John Paulson

Never take a loan against your retirement! When you pay interest against your retirement, you cost yourself interest. -Dave Ramsey

In Puerto Rico, there has developed a culture of taking out loans and not paying them back. That has ended. -Eduardo Bhatia

My parents are not of this world. I've had to work multiple jobs, been in a position where I cannot pay off student loans. -Kelly Marie Tran

We should redefine the metric for effective lending, viz., prioritise loans to enterprises, which will generate more employment. -Urjit Patel

If I were Elizabeth Sloane, I wouldn't be wearing makeup. I'd just be focused on getting the job done. -Jessica Chastain

When the financial system works as it should, money and capital flow to and from households and businesses to pay for home loans, school loans, and investments to create jobs. -Henry Paulson

What I would like to do… once I take care of all my kids' student loans, is buy a red 1965 Mustang and fully restore it. -Mike Quigley

A black entrepreneur has to be equally if not more prepared than a white to get his fair share of loan money. -Linda Johnson Rice

The federal government requires that its loans be paid back within 10 years of graduation, and Harvard has pegged its loans to the same 10-year timetable. Yet despite Harvard's low default rate, the idea of years of loan debt is daunting for some students even before it's time to pay back. -David Fahrenthold

Financial Aid Office (FAO) administrators are scrambling to educate students on repaying loans, but a disparity in knowledge persists. -David Fahrenthold

I promise not to take my thousands of dollars in student loan debt and move to Mexico. At least not right away. -David Fahrenthold

I was definitely planning to go to college, but I deferred my admission to Carnegie Mellon to be in a non-equity tour of 'The Sound of Music.' But I made very little money in the tour, and college is really expensive, and I thought I'd never be able to pay off those loans. -Jonathan Groff

I've led programs that have helped thousands of individuals, small businesses, veterans, the disabled, farmers get low-interest loans to prosper. -Raja Krishnamoorthi

There were absolutely circumstances where Sallie Mae was working hand-in-hand with for-profit schools and other schools in offering and putting students into risky expensive subprime loans. -Lisa Madigan

My investigation found Sallie Mae put student borrowers into expensive subprime loans that it knew were going to fail. -Lisa Madigan

Navient/Sallie Mae treated student loan borrowers unfairly from start to finish. -Lisa Madigan

Do not enter into an agreement you cannot afford. Take precautions to avoid institutional loans with double-digit interest rates. -Lisa Madigan

Much of the blame for the Great Recession lies with abuses in the housing market – namely the creation of risky and unsustainable home loans that were packaged and sold as quality investments around the globe. -Lisa Madigan

Investigating some of the largest subprime lenders – Wells Fargo, Countrywide, Ameriquest, Household Finance – I've seen how their terrible, toxic loans were closed by any means necessary and eventually packaged, sold as securities, and bet upon until they exploded and decimated our economy. -Lisa Madigan

I've repeatedly seen unscrupulous lenders use every con in the book to charm and lie to homeowners. Lenders actually paid brokers a premium to put people in higher-priced loans with toxic features, such as adjustable rates and prepayment penalties. -Lisa Madigan

For many, the loan modification process has been a giant sham. -Lisa Madigan

It was very important for us to hear that both European governments and the IMF are going to sustain and augment their commitment to Greece because they don't pursue the debt reduction route. They're actually extending more debt, more loans to Greece. -Charles Dallara

Sloane Crosley and David Sedaris are two of my favorite writers; they're the kind of writers who make you feel like, 'I can do this. I want to do this.' -Leandra Medine

Better educating our college students on the risks of high student debt and helping them to find alternatives to taking out student loans would help make the difference to their financial future. -Darryl Glenn

I grew up in Communist China and never had much money to my name, and then, all of a sudden, I had giant student loans. -Li Lu

The inability of middle-class people to receive loans in developing countries has had a stifling effect on economic growth and prosperity around the globe. -Joe Lonsdale

There are hundreds of millions of people around the globe who could safely repay loans but nonetheless do not have access to a line of credit. Financial institutions in developing economies are broken and inefficient, and hard-working people have not been given the chance to establish a credit history. -Joe Lonsdale

To have come of age during and after the global financial crisis of 2008 is to belong to a generation often unable to do what an American could once expect, and to do what was once expected: Get a job, pay off student loans, and find a place of your own. -Anand Giridharadas

First, pay off your high-interest-rate debt. If you have student loan debt – that's low interest rate; that has a tax benefit – you can leave that out. A mortgage can be an OK one. Credit card debt is poison. That needs to be paid off right away. -Sallie Krawcheck

My undergraduate degree was in art history! Raising money for Chipotle was really my MBA. The money for my first restaurant came from my dad, the second from mostly cash flow.

Funny money has always been the reason housing prices have risen too fast. First, it was liar loans and negative-amortizing mortgages, where the total amount you owed increased rather than decreased every month. We all know how that ended, with the global financial crisis of 2008. -Glenn Kelman

The thing was, if I had a bad game, I was 'the Man United reject.' If I had a good game, it was 'Man United star on loan.' And I just thought, 'I don't need that anymore.' One minute, I was hero; the next minute, I was zero. I just didn't need it. I'd rather just play football. -Wilfried Zaha

We have a psychologist at Chelsea who goes around seeing the loan players. He said every top, top player has a dark side. So someone like Diego Costa sometimes oversteps the mark.

The people who pawn stuff never want to be on the show. And the reason behind that, I find out, is when people are pawning something, it's – they're getting a loan. They have to admit they're broke.
