Price Vs. Value
It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s unwise to pay too little, too.
When you pay too much, you’ve lost a little money; that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought is incapable od doing the thing it was bought to do.
The common law of business balance 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. If you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.
John Ruskin (1819-1900)
English Essayist, ritic and reformer
