We have erased segregation in those areas of national life to which Federal authority clearly extends. So doing in this, my friends, we have neither sought nor claimed partisan credit, and all such actions are nothing more -- nothing less than the rendering of justice. And we have always been aware of this great truth: the final battle against intolerance is to be fought -- not in the chambers of any legislature -- but in the hearts of men.
Anything you make a mistake about, I will get you out of, and anything you do well I will take the credit for.Ernest Bevin
I desire to exercise my faith in the difficultest points, for to credit ordinary and visible objects is not faith but persuasion.

A lot of people don't give him [Kane] as much credit for his art, but I thought he had a flair. It was rudimentary, but in a way that worked to his benefit in the strip. He didn't know much about perspective and anatomy, so he had to improvise.bob kane
Everything I am came from my parents. I don't take that much credit for who I am and what I am.mandy patinkin
Screen credit is valuable only when it's given you. If you're in a position to give yourself credit, you don't need it.

In the long run an opinion often borrows credit from the forbearance of its patrons.Henry James
All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation , not from want of honor or virtue , so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation .
The maxim of buying nothing without the money in our pocket to pay for it, would make of our country one of the happiest upon earth. Experience during the war proved this; as I think every man will remember that under all the privations it obliged him to submit to during that period he slept sounder, and awaked happier than he can do now. Desperate of finding relief from a free course of justice, I look forward to the abolition of all credit as the only other remedy which can take place.
Private credit is wealth; public honor is security; the feather that adorns the royal bird supports its flight; strip him of his plumage, and you fix him to the earth.junius
All the perplexities, confusions, and distresses in America arise, not from defects in their constitution or confederation, not from a want of honor or virtue, so much as from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation.

The invention of writs was really the making of the English Common Law; and the credit of this momentous achievement, which took place chiefly between 1150 and 1250, must be shared between the officials of the royal Chancery, who framed new forms, and the royal judges, who either allowed them or quashed them.

By common courtesy, credit is given to Courts which have pronounced the law, that they have proceeded legally.
I think it is impossible to give credit to testimony that would prove infinitely more than can be brought within the bounds of probability.
True honour is an attachment to honest and beneficent principles, and a good reputation; and prompts a man to do good to others, and indeed to all men, at his own cost, pains, or peril. False honour is a pretence to this character, but does things that destroy it: And the abuse of honour is called honour, by those who from that good word borrow credit to act basely, rashly, or foolishly.
Every single Act either weakeneth or improveth our credit with other Men ; and as an habit of being just to our Word will confirm, so an habit of too freely dispensing with it must necessarily destroy it.savile, george, 1st marquess of halifax
When I consider the Question, Whether there are such Persons in the World as those we call Witches? my Mind is divided between the two opposite Opinions; or rather (to speak my Thoughts freely) I believe in general that there is, and has been such a thing as Witchcraft; but at the same time can give no credit to any Particular Instance of it.
