Antonio takes out an unwise loan

Thou know’st that all my fortunes are at sea
Neither have I money nor commodity
To raise a present sum: therefore go forth;
Try what my credit can in Venice do:
That shall be rack’d, even to the uttermost,
To furnish thee to Belmont, to fair Portia.
Go, presently inquire, and so will I,
Where money is, and I no question make
To have it of my trust or for my sake.


Antonio, The Merchant of Venice, Act One , Scene i
