The Price You Pay
"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
Because the thing you bought was
Incapable of doing the thing it was Bought to do.
The common law of business balance
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
