Quotes about debt


1. I don't know how you feel, but I'm pretty sick of church people. You know what they ought to do with churches? Tax them. If holy people are so interested in politics, government, and public policy, let them pay the price of admission like everybody else. The Catholic Church alone could wipe out the national debt if all you did was tax their real estate.
- George Carlin

2. Love is not a habit, a commitment, or a debt. It isn't what romantic songs tell us it is - love simply is.
- Paulo Coelho

3.

- A.W. Tozer
