Pay Too Little?

“It’s unwise to pay too much. But it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all.

When you pay too little you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.

The common law of business balances prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It can’t 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.

There is hardly anything in the world that someone can’t make a little worse and sell a little cheaper—and people who consider price alone are this man’s lawful prey.”

- John Ruskin (attributed) 1819-1900



“A thing is worth what it can do for you, not what you choose to pay for it.”

- John Ruskin, 1819-1900
