Debt, grinding debt, whose iron face the widow, the orphan, and the sons of genius fear and hate; debt, which consumes so much time, which so cripples and disheartens a great spirit with cares that seem so base, is a preceptor whose lessons cannot be foregone, and is needed most by those who suffer from it most.

And looks the whole world in the face,
For he owes not any man.

It would be easier to pay off the national debt overnight than to neutralize the long-range effects of our national stupidity.
Frank Zappa

A national debt, if it is not excessive, will be to us a national blessing.
Alexander Hamilton

Be assured that it gives much more pain to the mind to be in debt, than to do without any article whatever which we may seem to want.
Thomas Jefferson
In letter to his daughter.

Live within your means, never be in debt, and by husbanding your money you can always lay it out well. But when you get in debt you become a slave. Therefore I say to you never involve yourself in debt, and become no man's surety. If your friend is in distress, aid him if you have the means to spare. If he fails to be able to return it, it is only so much lost.
Andrew Jackson

Let every man, every corporation, and especially let every village, town, and city, every county and State, get out of debt and keep out of debt. It is the debtor that is ruined by hard times.

A mortgage casts a shadow on the sunniest field.
Robert Green Ingersoll

A small debt produces a debtor; a large one, an enemy.
Publilius Syrus

You load 16 tons, and what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt.
St. Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go.
I owe my soul to the company store.
Merle Travis
From song Sixteen Tons.
