in praise of debt
from Urquhart's Rabelais' Third Book:
Be still indebted to somebody or other, that there may be somebody always to pray for you, that the giver of all good things may grant unto you a blessed, long, and prosperous life; fearing, if fortune should deal crossly with you, that it might be his chance to come short of being paid by you . . .
The rest of Rabelais' surrounding chapters is similarly hilarious.
