An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





Alas! how deeply painful is all payment!


Lord Byron (1788-1824, British poet)


Cash-payment is not the sole nexus of man with man.


Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881, Scottish philosopher, author)


I can't afford to pay them any other way.


Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919, American industrialist, philanthropist)


We often make people pay dearly for what we think we give them.


Comtesse Diane


When you overpay small people you frighten them. They know that their merits or activities entitle them to no such sums as they are receiving. As a result their boss soars out of economic into magic significance. He becomes a source of blessings rather than wages. Criticism is sacrilege, doubt is heresy.


Ben Hecht (1894-1964, American newspaperman, novelist, playwright)


Better see rightly on a pound a week than squint on a million.


George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950, Irish-born British dramatist)
