Tutor Nick P Quotes 4 Shakespeare – Neither A Borrower Nor Lender Be


Hi this is tutor Nick P and this is Quotes four today
we’re going to look at a Shakespeare quote from Hamlet okay and here’s
actually the quote neither a borrower nor a lender be for loan oft loses itself
and friend yeah well this is very clear advice the advice was actually given to
Hamlet so don’t be the person who lends the money to someone but don’t also be
the person who borrows the money it’s bad for both of you actually
in many many ways so neither a borrower nor a lender be for loan oft oft is
old English to me often loan oft loses itself so you lose the money loan loses itself means
the money is gone and friend so you if you’re the lender so it’s probably even worse for the
lender because he’s lost both he’s lost the money
he’s lost his friend and probably a lot of bad feelings that he has to deal with
okay so let’s uh let’s quickly cover it this Shakespeare quote literally means
it is better not to be the person who lends the money or who borrows the money
if you are the lender there is high risk you will lose both your money and your
friend if you are the borrower you may have to feel guilty about not returning
the money or have to deal with avoiding the lender you will probably also lose
your friend who may have helped you in more ways in the future if he wasn’t cheated
than the mere value of the loan so so the borrower may lose out even a lot
more than the borrower I mean yeah then the borrower realizes because maybe he
thinks well he didn’t have to return the money he got away with the money but you
know you’ve sometimes we say you to burn bridges you’ve burned a bridge and you
could you can’t get help from that friend anymore that friend is gone it’s
never going to help you again so and you know in life it’s not easy to have a lot
of good friends so if you lose a good you know you’ve cut you cut ties you’ve
burnt bridges and you know that’s it can’t get help from that person again so
who knows he may have lost out a lot more than than just what the value of
that money was oh okay I hope it clarifies it clarifies what this quote
means it’s a good life lesson thank you thank you for your time
