Judith McKenna
People ‘demand’ the opportunity to gamble away money they do not have, just like people ‘demand’ money from loan sharks at extortionate interest rates. This is a warped, empty type of freedom, in which the powerful are free to exploit the vulnerable.
David Lammy
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.

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.

Jean Chatzky

Suze Orman
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. But you can see he plays on the edge. He said I had to develop that. It’s not natural for me to be like that.
Patrick Bamford
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

Student loan origination fees are nothing more than a hidden tax that burdens students.
Mike Braun
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.

Patrick Bamford
Spending time in Sweden on loan was one of the best things I ever did.

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

Jean Chatzky
Navient/Sallie Mae treated student loan borrowers unfairly from start to finish.

Michael J. Knowles
As a first-generation college student who worked my way through community college on to Cornell Law, having health insurance was not a top priority when I was starting out. I was buried in student loan debt and worried about simply making ends meet.

Patrick Bamford
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.

Steve Ells

Nemanja Matic
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.

The private citizen, beset by partisan appeals for the loan of his Public Opinion, will soon see, perhaps, that these appeals are not a compliment to his intelligence, but an imposition on his good nature and an insult to his sense of evidence.

Brantley Gilbert
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.

The way the credit cards were made in the '80s to be a

The two years out on loan were about trying to get experience and work as hard as I could to make sure when I came back I could give myself the best chance to get back to Chelsea and get in the team. That was my goal.
Mason Mount
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
You hope your buddies will win so you don’t have to loan them any money.
Chris LeDoux
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

Abu Bakr
I went to Northampton on loan, it was long ball, not really my style. It was hard for me to make a mark.

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

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.
