Some wise remarks about banks
A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove you don’t need it.

It is easier to rob by setting up a bank than by holding up a bank clerk.
A banker is a fellow who lends his umbrella when the sun is shining and wants it back the minute it begins to rain.
