John Ruskin John Ruskin It’s unwise to pay too much

but its worse to pay too little.


 When you pay too much

you sometimes lose a little money.

But when you pay too little

you sometimes lose everything

because the thing you bought

was incapable of doing

what it was you bought it to do.


The law of common sense

prohibits paying a little

and getting a lot.


It cannot be done.


If you deal with the lowest bidder,

It is well to add something for the risk you run

and if you do that

you will have enough

to pay for something better.


John Ruskin 1819 - 1900

Author, Architect and Economist.
