Cost quotes by Rose Wilder Lane
#1. I am too sick to work and haven't money enough to last 2 months and pay income tax. I want to keep going but do not see quite how, and there is no alternative - rather than justify my mother's 25-year dread of my "coming back on her, sick", I must kill myself. If she has to pay funeral costs, at least she will cut them to the bone and I will not be here to endure her martyrdom and prolong it by living. #Quote by Rose Wilder Lane
Cost quotes by Madeline Miller
#2. The anger stood out plain and clean on his face. There was a sort of innocence to him, I thought. I do not mean this as the poets mean it: a virtue to be broken by the story's end, or else upheld at greatest cost. Nor do I mean that he was foolish or guileless. I mean that he was made only of himself, without the dregs that clog the rest of us. He thought and felt and acted, and all these things made a straight line. No wonder his father had been so baffled by him. He would have been always looking for the hidden meaning, the knife in the dark. But Telemachus carried his blade in the open. #Quote by Madeline Miller
Cost quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#3. We are in this together. None of us truly walk in isolation, even when we cannot sense the presence of another for miles upon miles. Even in the worst of our desolation. Even during our coldest 3am breakdown. Even when we shut out the world and spin in circles until we collapse. Even then the light still gets in. Even then the heart still opens and reaches, tendrils of hope curling and bending toward slivers of light. Upward, outward, in all directions – seeking light at all cost. One way or another, we all grow toward the light. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Cost quotes by Wendell Berry
#4. The Economy was studying the purpose of The War, which is to purchase and not have. The customers of The War (all of us, that is) purchase life at a great cost and yet lose it. And The War was just as busily studying the purpose of The Economy, which is to cause people to purchase what they do not need or do not want, and to receive patiently what they did not expect. Having paid for life, we receive death. By now, in this nineteen hundred and eighty-sixth Year of Our Lord, we all have purchased how many shares in death? How many bombs, shells, mines, guns, grenades, poisons, anonymous murders, nameless sufferings, official secrets? But not the controlling share. Death cannot be marketed in controlling shares. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Cost quotes by Assegid Habtewold
#5. If you've passion- the desire to succeed at all cost, there won't be any lack or limitation that could stop you. Passion wipes out excuses. #Quote by Assegid Habtewold
Cost quotes by Sam Harris
#6. I still considered the world's religions to be mere intellectual ruins, maintained at enormous economic and social cost, but I now understood that important psychological truths could be found in the rubble. #Quote by Sam Harris
Cost quotes by Robert Penn Warren
#7. Let us leave in suspension such debates about the economic costs of the War and look at another kind of cost, a kind more subtle, pervasive, and continuing, a kind that conditions in a thousand ways the temper of American life today. This cost is psychological, and it is, of course, different for the winner and the loser. #Quote by Robert Penn Warren
Cost quotes by Meister Eckhart
#8. The price of inaction is far greater than the cost of making a mistake. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Cost quotes by John Rhys-Davies
#9. In the film world, we can all be heroes. In the real world, where heroism can cost you your life or the life of the ones you love, people aren't so willing to make those sacrifices. When they do, they are set apart from the rest of us. #Quote by John Rhys-Davies
Cost quotes by Ma Jun
#10. Regulatory failings mean that the cost of breaking the law is far below that of obeying it - businesses are happier to pay fines than to control pollution. #Quote by Ma Jun
Cost quotes by Victoria Aveyard
#11. I should know better than to lie. But a lie is what they need to carry on, and if my deceit saves even one of them, it is worth the cost to my soul. #Quote by Victoria Aveyard
Cost quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
#12. Academic life is but half life it is a withdrawal from the fight to utter smart things that cost you nothing except the thinking them from a cloister. #Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Cost quotes by Paulo Coelho
#13. In a world where everyone struggles to survive whatever the cost, how could one judge those people who decide to die? No one can judge. Each person knows the extent of their own suffering or the total absence of meaning in their lives. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Cost quotes by Melissa Caruso
#14. I traded freedom for power, and I could use that power to keep the people I cared about safe. To wish for both freedom and power would be selfish; there was a reason everything came with a cost. #Quote by Melissa Caruso
Cost quotes by Sandi Metz
#15. When the future cost of doing nothing is the same as the current cost, postpone the decision. Make the decision only when you must with the information you have at that time. #Quote by Sandi Metz
Cost quotes by George Orwell
#16. I had been in London innumerable times, and yet till that day I had never noticed one of the worst things about London-the fact that it costs money even to sit down. #Quote by George Orwell
Cost quotes by Bill Maher
#17. Tea Party has now cost the Republicans 5 senate seats. My next donation is going to them. #Quote by Bill Maher
Cost quotes by Grace Draven
#18. His rancor doesn't change the fact I had to close the breach no matter the cost." Brishen gazed at the human who once saved his life and called him friend. "You understand I wouldn't have altered anything had that been you instead of Megiddo?"

Serovek chuckled and batted away a demon with the back of his hand. 'I'd hope not. I didn't much relish the idea of being skewered, resurrected and thrown on a sham horse so I can chase demons all over the place. You ruining the entire plan because you had a fit of the vapors about sacrificing me wouldn't endear you to me. #Quote by Grace Draven
Cost quotes by Francois Truffaut
#19. There are two kinds of directors; those who have the public in mind when they conceive and make their films and those who don't consider the public at all. For the former, cinema is an art of spectacle; for the latter, it is an individual adventure. There is nothing intrinsically better about one or the other; it's simply a matter of different approaches. For Hitchcock as for Renoir, as for that matter almost all American directors, a film has not succeeded unless it is a success, that is, unless it touches the public that one has had in mind right from the moment of choosing the subject matter to the end of production. While Bresson, Tati, Rossellini, Ray make films their own way and then invite the public to join the "game," Renoir, Clouzot, Hitchcock and Hawks make movies for the public, and ask themselves all the questions they think will interest their audience. Alfred Hitchcock, who is a remarkably intelligent man, formed the habit early--right from the start of his career in England--of predicting each aspect of his films. All his life he has worked to make his own tastes coincide with the public', emphasizing humor in his English period and suspense in his American period. This dosage of humor and suspense has made Hitchcock one of the most commercial directors in the world (his films regularly bring in four times what they cost). It is the strict demands he makes on himself and on his art that have made him a great director. #Quote by Francois Truffaut
Cost quotes by Evan Bayh
#20. You now have six-year campaigns for the Senate - you never stop running. It's not uncommon for a member of the Senate to have a fundraising breakfast, a fundraising lunch and a fundraising dinner, and then when the Senate breaks for the week to go home, more fundraisers. And that's driven by the cost of campaigning. #Quote by Evan Bayh
Cost quotes by Jim Clyburn
#21. Democrats are fighting for a new direction that includes protecting Social Security as well as making healthcare affordable, bringing down the high cost of gasoline, and making higher education more accessible for all Americans. #Quote by Jim Clyburn
Cost quotes by Seneca.
#22. Living is not good, but living well.
the wise man lives as well as he should, not as long as he could ...
he will always think of life in terms of quality; not quantity ...
dying early or late is of no relevance, dying well or ills ...
even if it is true that while there is life there is hope, life is not to be at any cost. #Quote by Seneca.
Cost quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#23. If there is heaven, atheists will be the first to put their foot there; they take time to find God personally. They risk losing everything when they decide He does not exist. While believers will swallow anything you throw at them to protect their own self-interests to get to heaven at all cost, atheists want a real God and I believe God will not disappoint such a genuine breed of human beings. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Cost quotes by Yevgeny Zamyatin
#24. Ever since he repented of religion and shaved off his clerical beard and mustache, he has had the constant feeling that he has taken off his trousers, and that his nose protrudes altogether indecently and must at all cost be covered. It's sheer torment!
With one hand over his nose, the deacon knocks again and again. No one responds. And yet Martha is home; the gate is locked from within. And that means - what? It means that she is with someone else ... The deacon punctuates the scene inwardly with the three dots we have graphically depicted just above, and, tripping over them at every second step, he proceeds to Rosa Luxemburg Street. ("X") #Quote by Yevgeny Zamyatin
Cost quotes by Stewart Stafford
#25. The coronavirus outbreak feels like an episode of The Twilight Zone. I went to see a doctor the other day, and they told me to wear a face mask. Then they said how much it would cost to see the doctor and I told them THEY were the ones who should be wearing masks! #Quote by Stewart Stafford
Cost quotes by Nicola Yoon
#26. He will hold her and wonder, very briefly, about the future that loving her will cost him. #Quote by Nicola Yoon
Cost quotes by Rory Kinnear
#27. Without being overtly political about it, if people with severe disabilities are calculated in societal terms purely as a monetised unit, in terms of how much they cost in terms of care, you lose an important sense of who they are and the effect they have. #Quote by Rory Kinnear
Cost quotes by Vasko Popa
#28. he is blind in his love
and he sees
no other beauty
save her he loves
who will cost him his life #Quote by Vasko Popa
Cost quotes by Paul Hawken
#29. While there may be no "right" way to value a forest or a river, there is a wrong way, which is to give it no value at all. How do we decide the value of a 700-year-old tree? We need only to ask how much it would cost to make a new one, or a new river, or even a new atmosphere. #Quote by Paul Hawken
Cost quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#30. Big money isn't hard to come by. All it costs is a lifetime of single-minded devotion to acquiring it and making it grow into more money. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Cost quotes by M.G. Lord
#31. AS STRATEGY SESSIONS BEGAN IN HAWTHORNE, THE Handlers made a brilliant tactical move. They commissioned a toy study from Ernest Dichter, Ph.D., director of the Institute for Motivational Research in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. The study cost a staggering $12,000 and took six months to complete, but when it was finished the charge seemed low. Dichter had masterminded a cunning campaign to peddle Barbie. Dichter was already a legend when the Handlers approached him. Quoted on nearly every page of Vance Packard's The Hidden Persuaders, a bestseller in 1957, Dichter was hailed as a marketing Einstein - an evil Einstein, but an Einstein nonetheless. He pioneered what he called "motivational research," advertising's newest, hippest, and, in Packard's view, scariest trend - the manipulation of deep-seated psychological cravings to sell merchandise. #Quote by M.G. Lord
Cost quotes by Ben Loory
#32. Eventually the man comes to see that he has a mind, and that his mind is like a fist, wrapped tightly around a single thought. He cannot open the fist to look at the thought, for fear that it will fly away, but he knows that it is very important and that he must hang on to it, no matter what the cost. #Quote by Ben Loory
Cost quotes by Ric Keller
#33. Illegal immigration costs taxpayers $45 billion a year in health care, education, and incarceration expenses. #Quote by Ric Keller
Cost quotes by Josh Mandel
#34. We need to do a top/bottom review of the federal government and for every agency administration bureaucracy that is not called for in the United States Constitution, we have to really ask the question what is its purpose, how many people work there, how much does it cost the taxpayers and what is the value to our society. #Quote by Josh Mandel
Cost quotes by Murray Rothbard
#35. The costs of government are bound to be much higher than those of the free market ... The State cannot calculate well and therefore cannot gauge its costs accurately. #Quote by Murray Rothbard
Cost quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#36. Do you see the butterfly?" Suri grinned with enthusiasm.
"Yes, I see it, but - "
"So stunning and delicate; it's marvelous. No one can see a butterfly and not stop to admire it. I'd love to be one. To go to sleep and wake up a season later with such beautiful wings and the ability to flutter about. That's the most wonderful sort of magic, don't you think? To change, to grow, to fly. But ... " She paused. "I wonder what the cost would be." The smile diminished once more. "There's always a cost when it comes to magic. I suspect there is a great price to go from lowly caterpillar to glorious butterfly. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Cost quotes by Catherine Helen Spence
#37. A glass of whisky in Scotland in the thirties cost less than a cup of tea. #Quote by Catherine Helen Spence
Cost quotes by Zane Grey
#38. Hard work makes for what I reckon you like in a man, but don't understand. As I look back over my life--an' let me say, young fellar, it's been a tough one--what I remember most an' feel best over are the hardest jobs I ever did, an' those that cost the most sweat an' blood." As #Quote by Zane Grey
Cost quotes by Margaret Visser
#39. One can never be too rich or too thin' is an aphorism attributed to the Duchess of Windsor. Being both rich and thin is a difficult enterprise, indeed almost unprecedented as an ideal. Into the paradoxical gap between the capacity to spend money and the need to eat less steps a brilliant solution: 'light' food. In buying 'light' food we can pay more for what costs less to produce in the first place ... #Quote by Margaret Visser
Cost quotes by Leonard Woodcock
#40. And so we said to General Motors that the solution had to be a first year increase, which had to be sizeable because we had to catch up with the lost position as against the cost of living and we had to make some progress. #Quote by Leonard Woodcock
Cost quotes by Moliere
#41. It may cost me twenty thousand francs; but for twenty thousand francs, I will have the right to rail against the iniquity of humanity, and to devote to it my eternal hatred. #Quote by Moliere
Cost quotes by George Will
#42. Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics. #Quote by George Will
Cost quotes by Anonymous
#43. At the core of love is a self-sacrificing pursuit of the beloved's greatest good. Love saves. Love rescues. Love helps. And it does so, if necessary, at cost to the lover. #Quote by Anonymous
Cost quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#44. I have a right to get pleasure out of life: and I will get it, cost what it may." "Then you will degenerate still more, sir. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Cost quotes by Hugh Hewitt
#45. Folks trying to plan their personal fiscal '15 are at a loss. They can't do a budget because they don't know what their health insurance costs will be. #Quote by Hugh Hewitt
Cost quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#46. That's exactly what I'm talking about. That's the evil that's seducing you. The malevolent power that is crawling through your blood tempting you onto a treacherous path that will cost you everything you love and hold dear. You have to let that anger go before it's too late. Vengeance always turns inward and it will consume you until nothing's left but an empty hole that nothing can fill. (Ambrose) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Cost quotes by David Neeleman
#47. With high trust, success comes faster, better, and at lower cost. #Quote by David Neeleman
Cost quotes by Carroll Quigley
#48. Inflation, especially a slow steady rise in prices, encourages producers, because it means that they can commit themselves to costs of production on one price level and then, later, offer the finished product for sale at a somewhat higher price level. This situation encourages production because it gives confidence of an almost certain profit margin. #Quote by Carroll Quigley
Cost quotes by Anonymous
#49. The gratification of the reader must come at the cost of the crucifixion of the author. #Quote by Anonymous
Cost quotes by Harry Yoxall
#50. Don't believe stories which you see in the papers about troops asking as a special privilege not to be relieved. We stick it, at all costs if necessary, as long as ordered, but everyone's glad to hand over to someone else. And anyone who says he enjoys this kind of thing is either a liar or a madman. #Quote by Harry Yoxall
Cost quotes by Wally Lamb
#51. She suggested that...I should examine what I had been trying to shoot at and punch and kill for so long- whether or not I had, perhaps, denied some more gentle part of my nature, and if so, what had it cost me. "And don't get a tattoo for your forehead," she said, smiling. "It's entirely unnecessary." As proof, she held her hands in front of her. Wiggled her fingers and smiled. Our being human made us tragic and comic both, she has said; the gods both laughed and wept. #Quote by Wally Lamb
Cost quotes by Dennis Kucinich
#52. First of all, the Social Security money belongs to Main Street, not to Wall Street. It needs to be said very clearly here that privatization is off the table ... Social Security, as a matter of fact, is a better investment now than the stock market. There's a higher return. There's guaranteed cost-of-living increases. Privatization you have to worry about the value of your account. #Quote by Dennis Kucinich
Cost quotes by William J. Brennan
#53. It is difficult to understand precisely what the state hopes to achieve by promoting the creation and perpetuation of a subclass of illiterates within our boundaries, surely adding to the problems and costs of unemployment, welfare and crime. #Quote by William J. Brennan
Cost quotes by Walter Model
#54. Every minute that we lose will cost us great losses later that we will not be able to afford. #Quote by Walter Model
Cost quotes by Wendell Berry
#55. From other stories that have been handed down to me I know that my people, like many others in the slave states, went to church with their slaves, were baptized with them, and presumably expected to associate with them in heaven. Again, I have been years realizing what this means, and what it has cost.

First, consider the moral predicament of the master who sat in church with his slaves, thus attesting his belief in the immortality of the souls of people whose bodies he owned and used. He thus placed his body, if not his mind, at the very crux of the deepest contradiction of his life. How could he presume to own the body of a man whose soul he considered as worthy of salvation as his own? To keep this question from articulating itself in his thoughts and demanding an answer, he had to perfect an empty space in his mind, a silence, between heavenly concerns and earthly concerns, between body and spirit. If there had ever opened a conscious connection between the two claims, if the two sides of his mind had ever touched, it would have been like building a fire in a house full of gunpowder: somewhere down deep in his mind he always knew of the danger, and his nerves were always alert to it. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Cost quotes by V.E Schwab
#56. Life isn't made of choices, it's made of trades. Some are good, some are bad, but they all have a cost. #Quote by V.E Schwab
Cost quotes by Keith Henson
#57. Even small cults are a serious cost on the world economy, to victims, their families, employers, friends, and credit-card companies. #Quote by Keith Henson
Cost quotes by John Chamberlain
#58. Thus a new way of finding fluidity will inevitably be imposed on management and labor alike. The profit-sharing, or "progress" sharing union contract is the only possible way of satisfying labor and the consumer without saddling industry with fixed costs that in depression periods can kill off marginal companies like flies. #Quote by John Chamberlain
Cost quotes by Benjamin Whichcote
#59. A good word costs as little as a bad one, and is worth more. #Quote by Benjamin Whichcote
Cost quotes by Ben Quayle
#60. I welcome the President and working with him to try to get some of that medical malpractice reform so we can get the cost of health care to come down. #Quote by Ben Quayle
Cost quotes by Joseph R. Lallo
#61. It is talk such as that which will cost us victory, #Quote by Joseph R. Lallo
Cost quotes by John Ortberg
#62. The paradox of soul-satisfaction is this: When I die to myself, my soul comes alive. God says the wrong approach to soul thirst is through human achievement and material wealth. So soul-satisfaction is not about acquiring the right things but about acquiring the right soul. It is not something you buy, but something you receive freely from God. Hear these great words of the prophet Isaiah: "Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and [your soul] will delight in the richest of fare." And it will be satisfied. #Quote by John Ortberg
Cost quotes by John Dryden
#63. Ever a glutton, at another's cost, But in whose kitchen dwells perpetual frost. #Quote by John Dryden
Cost quotes by Daniel Alarcon
#64. He admired this too: their ability to preserve joy at any cost, the way prehistoric man might have preserved fire. #Quote by Daniel Alarcon
Cost quotes by Julian Simon
#65. Greater consumption due to increase in population and growth of income heightens scarcity and induces price run-ups. A higher price represents an opportunity that leads inventors and businesspeople to seek new ways to satisfy the shortages. Some fail, at cost to themselves. A few succeed, and the final result is that we end up better off than if the original shortage problems had never arisen. That is, we need our problems, though this does not imply that we should purposely create additional problems for ourselves. #Quote by Julian Simon
Cost quotes by Mark Zandi
#66. Potential home buyers have a two-step decision process. First, they determine whether they can afford to make a purchase - does their income safely cover their mortgage payment? Then they determine whether owning is a better financial choice than renting - are the costs of owning a home lower than the cost of renting it? #Quote by Mark Zandi
Cost quotes by Veerappa Moily
#67. Petrol price is a deregulated commodity, price of which is decided by our oil marketing companies based on input cost and other parameters. #Quote by Veerappa Moily
Cost quotes by Mark Rutte
#68. The annual cost of cybercrime to the global economy is more than $4 billion #Quote by Mark Rutte
Cost quotes by Peter Calthorpe
#69. We've concocted a system where local trips take an auto. That's our biggest tragedy. Streetcars, such as those used in Portland's Pearl District, and elevated people movers, like those in downtown Miami, are moving people from rail stations to their final destinations. But a new concept, PRT, may help revolutionize urban transportation, providing a cost-effective way to get people from train stations to where they need to go. #Quote by Peter Calthorpe
Cost quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#70. Henry's face went red in anger as he blustered at her audacity. It wasn't often anyone got the better of him, and Sin knew no woman had ever flummoxed him before. Not even Eleanor.
"You are willing to declare war for him ?" Henry asked indignantly.
She didn't hesitate with her response. "I am. Are you?"
Sin closed his eyes as he heard the most precious words of his life. She who believed in nothing but peace was willing to fight for him. He could die happily knowing that.
Still, he couldn't let her do this. Henry would not rest until he buried her and her clan. A king's reputation was all he had, and if Henry lost face ...
"Callie," Sin said, waiting until her gaze met his. "Thank you, but you can't do this. You can't start a war over me. I'm not worth the cost."
"You are worth everything to me. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Cost quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#71. Apart from Christ, we cannot stand against our own hearts. The verses above presume that we will struggle with sin, but they warn us not to declare any sin a "sanctifiable" character quality, even if through it we may learn valuable lessons about life. Learning lessons is not God's first priority for his children. Transformed character is. I learned here that God may, in his providence, bring good from my past, but the good that comes is not because of the sin, but in spite of it. It is very tempting to see "good" in those things that tempt us to sin or lead us to sin because then we don't seem nearly as corrupt as Original Sin renders us. According to God, sinful temptations are inclinations to do something or become something that cost Jesus his life for my sake. We are not to try to ransom it on our own terms. Suggesting that our sin is good or produces good is tantamount to calling cancer good health. #Quote by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Cost quotes by John C. Maxwell
#72. If your vision doesn't cost you something, it's a daydream. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Cost quotes by Sandra Brown
#73. He made a costly error in judgement and sent an entire regiment into a virtual slaughterhouse. It happens frequently. Officers risk their troops' lives for the sake of a promotion. Not my father. He valued the life of every man under his command, from his officers to the humblest fresh recruit. When he realized what had happened, he was devastated. He couldn't ever forget that his error had cost the lives of so many men, created so many widows and orphans..."
"But, Lyon, measured against his valor, one mistake is forgivable."
"To us, yes. Not to him. He was sickened that the battle was hailed as one of the turning points of the war. He was decorated for it. It was considered a great victory, but it defeated him as a soldier, as a man. When he came home and was hailed a hero, he couldn't stand the conflict within himself. He didn't feel like a hero. He felt like a traitor."
"That can't be!"
"Not a traitor to his country, but to the men who had trusted his judgement and leadership. It was a conflict he never could reconcile, so he retired from the Army and came here and shut out the world and all reminders of the lie he was living."
They were quiet for a moment before she said,"No one would have thrown stones at him, Lyon. he was a respected man, a hero, a leader at a time in history when America needed heroes and leaders. It was a battleground that spread out for miles. Admist all the chaos he may have thought he made a mistake when he actually didn't. #Quote by Sandra Brown
Cost quotes by Alex Callinicos
#74. For what is socialism? With the frills removed, it is people collectively running society. Instead of being the prisoners of anarchic capitalist competition and the mad rush for profit at any cost, it is working together for the common good. Our tremendous co-operative power would be controlled, not by a ruling class in the search for ever greater profits, but democratically and for the fulfillment of human need. #Quote by Alex Callinicos
Cost quotes by Anne Hathaway
#75. That's how I see myself as an actress. I may not be the best in the world, but I love my craft more than just about anything, and I will give everything I have to it, whatever the cost . #Quote by Anne Hathaway
Cost quotes by Chief Seattle
#76. Revenge by young men is considered gain, even at the cost of their own lives, but old men who stay at home in times of war, and mothers who have sons to lose, know better. #Quote by Chief Seattle
Cost quotes by Kenneth E. Boulding
#77. Economics has been incurably growth-oriented and addicted to everybody growing richer, even at the cost of exhaustion of resources and pollution of the environment. #Quote by Kenneth E. Boulding
Cost quotes by John Steinbeck
#78. She gathered some brown seaweed and made a flat damp poultice of it, and this she applied to the baby's swollen shoulder, which was as good a remedy as any and probably better than the doctor could have done. But the remedy lacked his authority because it was simple and didn't cost anything. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Cost quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#79. My mother has always been sickly; and though she has only gone to the hospital when she has been compelled to, it has cost a great deal of money, and my father's life has been practically given up to it. "If only I knew how much the operation costs," says he. "Have you not asked?" "Not directly. I cannot do that - the surgeon might take it amiss and that would not do; he must operate on Mother." Yes, I think bitterly, that's how it is with us, and with all poor people. They don't dare ask the price, but worry themselves dreadfully beforehand about it; but the others, for whom it is not important, they settle the price first as a matter of course. And the doctor does not take it amiss from them. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Cost quotes by Emilio Komar
#80. When you consider females outfits, there's no end to the options available. Moreover, nowadays developer outfits is becoming inexpensive and cost-effective and hence many females are now dressed in developer use for almost all events. #Quote by Emilio Komar
Cost quotes by Doris Duke
#81. I'm not stingy. I'm just afraid of being an easy mark. People wouldn't have money long if they didn't ask how much things cost. #Quote by Doris Duke
Cost quotes by Jostein Gaarder
#82. But understanding will always require some effort. You probably wouldn't admire a friend who was good at everything if it cost her no effort. #Quote by Jostein Gaarder
Cost quotes by Ivan Illich
#83. Industrial innovations are costly, and managers must justify their high cost by producing measurable proof of their
superiority ... [P]eriodic innovations in goods or tools foster the belief that anything new will be proven better. This belief has become an integral part of the modern world view. It is forgotten that whenever a society lives by this delusion, each marketed unit generates more wants than it satisfies. If new things are made because they are better, then the things most people use are not quite good. New models constantly renovate poverty. The consumer feels the lag between what he has and what he ought to get. He believes that products can be made measurably more valuable and allows himself to be constantly re-educated for their consumption. The "better" replaces the "good" as the fundamental normative concept. #Quote by Ivan Illich
Cost quotes by Major Owens
#84. He testified that when you looked at it through the eyes of 'let's do it', the costs were very small. They were less than they'd had to spend to host a convention of transportation executives. The cost was not that great. #Quote by Major Owens
Cost quotes by Robert Greene
#85. An emotional response to a situation is the single greatest barrier to power, a mistake that will cost you a lot more than any temporary satisfaction you might gain by expressing your feelings. #Quote by Robert Greene
Cost quotes by Ann Voskamp
#86. The act of sacrificing thank offerings to God - even for the bread and cup of cost, for cancer and crucifixion - this prepares the way for God to show us His fullest salvation from bitter, angry, resentful lives and from all sin that #Quote by Ann Voskamp
Cost quotes by Austin Ligon
#87. Margins on other sales and revenues grew as a result of the growth in extended service plan revenues, which have no associated cost of sales, and the growth in our service margin, reflecting improved overhead expense absorption. #Quote by Austin Ligon
Cost quotes by Josiah Warren
#88. Liberty, then, is the sovereignty of the individual, and never shall man know liberty until each and every individual is acknowledged to be the only legitimate sovereign of his or her person, time, and property, each living and acting at his own cost; and not until we live in a society where each can exercise his right of sovereignty at all times without clashing with or violating that of others. #Quote by Josiah Warren
Cost quotes by John Murphy
#89. The TMS is evolving into a logistics platform that can handle all nodes, all geographies and all transportation nodes. It's already talking to other applications in the supply chain, like warehouse management, order management and ERP systems. By adding underlying algorithms, a TMS can now understand the relationship between the cost of inventory and the cost of transportation and come up with an optimal solution to answer those questions. #Quote by John Murphy
Cost quotes by Veronica Roth
#90. He didn't have to guide his mom toward Cyra. She saw her and walked straight to her. It didn't make Cyra look any less scared.
"Miss Noavek," his mom said. There was a little catch in her throat. She tilted her head to see the silverskin on Cyra's neck.
"Oracle," Cyra said, inclining her head. He'd never seen Cyra bow to anyone like she meant it before.
One of the shadows bloomed over Cyra's cheek and then spread into three lines of inky dark that ran down her throat like a swallow. He set his fingers on her elbow so she could shake his mother's hand when she offered it, and his mom watched the light touch with interest.
"Mom, Cyra made sure I got home last week," he said. He wasn't sure what else to say about her. Or what else to say, period. The blush that had chased him through childhood came creeping back; he felt it behind his ears, and tried to stifle it. "At great cost to herself, as you can see."
His mom looked Cyra over again. "Thank you, Miss Noavek, for what you've done for my son. I look forward, later, to finding out why."
With a strange smile, Sifa turned away, linking arms with Cisi. Cyra hung back with Akos, eyebrows raised.
"That's my mother," he said.
"I realize that," she said. "You're…" She brushed her fingers over the back of his ear, where his skin was heating. "You're blushing."
So much for trying to stifle it. The heat spread to Akos's face, and he was sure he was bright red. Shouldn't he have grown out of t #Quote by Veronica Roth
Cost quotes by Sammy Davis Jr.
#91. The manic pursuit of success cost me everything I could love: my wife, my three children, some friends I would have liked to grow old with. #Quote by Sammy Davis Jr.
Cost quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#92. What has appealed to me most in Tolstoy's life is that he practiced what he preached and reckoned no cost too great in his pursuit of truth. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Cost quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#93. He knew it was the price of enjoying life, that if he was to be alert to the things he now found pleasure in, he would have to accept its cost as well. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Cost quotes by Bernard Lewis
#94. Black slaves seem to have cost from two to three hundred dirhams; black eunuchs, at least two or three times as much. Female black slaves were sold at five hundred dirhams or so; trained singing girls or other performers, at ten or even twenty thousand. #Quote by Bernard Lewis
Cost quotes by Grimes
#95. I would never go to a studio. I need my space, you know what I mean? I need to be able to chain smoke and pace about, cry and like ... spit. Just make noise, make a huge mess. I also feel like if I was concerned for the cost of the studio - like, 'this is costing 40 dollars an hour' - I wouldn't be able to work. #Quote by Grimes
Cost quotes by Lord Byron
#96. Tis an old lesson; time approves it true, And those who know it best, deplore it most; When all is won that all desire to woo, The paltry prize is hardly worth the cost. #Quote by Lord Byron
Cost quotes by C.S. Lewis
#97. The Life-Force is a sort of tame God. You can switch it on when you want, but it will not bother you. All the thrills of religion and none of the cost. Is the Life-Force the greatest achievement of wishful thinking the world has yet seen? #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Cost quotes by Jo Nesbo
#98. As I say, we Norwegians love our woolens, and you can buy some beautiful knitwear in Oslo. They might cost you a bit - but they will last. #Quote by Jo Nesbo
Cost quotes by Jeff Goins
#99. What if the purpose of my life is not about me? Am I willing to give up all my dreams, my aspirations and comfort to find it/ Are you willing to pay the cost? This is the pearl of great price, the abundant life we are all seeking and, at the same time, petrified to find. #Quote by Jeff Goins
Cost quotes by Nick Spalding
#100. The festivities have a fancy dress theme... inevitable. Here's what i consider to be an undisputed fact: nobody actually likes going to fancy dress parties. If the government declared tomorrow that fancy dress parties were banned, nobody would mind. Why? Because you spend the weeks before the bloody thing worrying about what to wear and how much it's going to cost you. Then you either trawl around the charity shops every afternoon until you find a leather jacket that look slightly like the one Indiana Jones wears, or you throw in the towel and buy one of those mass-produced nasty costumes that come in a bag and fall apart before you've even arrived at the party. Then you realize that everybody's costume is a hundred times better than yours, and you look like the special kid who always stand at the back of the school concert waving at the fire exit. #Quote by Nick Spalding
Cost quotes by Patricia Briggs
#101. There was a movement to my right, and I snuck a quick glance to see Zee and Gabriel coming out the garage door. They must have gone back around. Zee had a crowbar in one hand and held it like another man might hold a sword. Gabriel had
"Zee," I squeaked. "Tell him to put the torque wrench back and grab something that won't cost me five hundred dollars if he hits someone with it."
"Won't cost five hundred," said Zee, but as I glanced over again, he nodded at the white-faced Gabriel, who looked at what he held as if he'd never seen it before. The boy slipped back into the garage as Zee said, "It wouldn't break it - you'd just have to get it recalibrated."
"We have a whole garage worth of tools - pry bars, tire irons, and even a hammer or two. There's got to be something better than my torque wrench he could have grabbed. #Quote by Patricia Briggs
Cost quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#102. This wife you have, Bird said at last, deeply contemplative, did you pay a great deal for her?
She cost me almost everything I had, he said, with a wry tone that made the others laugh. But worth it. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Cost quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#103. Allow intelligent design into science textbooks, lecture halls, and laboratories, and the cost to the frontier of scientific discovery - the frontier that drives the economies of the future - would be incalculable. I don't want students who could make the next major breakthrough in renewable energy sources or space travel to have been taught that anything they don't understand, and that nobody yet understands, is divinely constructed and therefore beyond their intellectual capacity. The day that happens, Americans will just sit in awe of what we don't understand, while we watch the rest of the world boldly go where no mortal has gone before. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Cost quotes by Peter Gutwein
#104. We've done a lot of work with our government businesses to ensure that we can get reasonable returns but at the same time that they can provide the services that they do provide to Tasmanians at the most efficient cost. #Quote by Peter Gutwein
Cost quotes by Henry James
#105. When you lay down a proposition which is forthwith controverted, it is of course optional with you to take up the cudgels in its defence. If you are deeply convinced of its truth, you will perhaps be content to leave it to take care of itself; or, at all events, you will not go out of your way to push its fortunes; for you will reflect that in the long run an opinion often borrows credit from the forbearance of its patrons. In the long run, we say; it will meanwhile cost you an occasional pang to see your cherished theory turned into a football by the critics. A football is not, as such, a very respectable object, and the more numerous the players, the more ridiculous it becomes. Unless, therefore, you are very confident of your ability to rescue it from the chaos of kicks, you will best consult its interests by not mingling in the game. #Quote by Henry James
Cost quotes by Keri Arthur
#106. Is love the desire - no, the need - to be with that person, whatever the cost? Does it cause the rue of rage when you see that person with another? Does it make you ache to hold her, to whisper things that sound foreign and strange to your tongue? Does it make you wish for things you know can never be?
I haven't the answers, Riley. In all that I've learned over the years, no one has ever mentioned a force such as this. But whatever it is, I feel it for you.
We would have been good together. #Quote by Keri Arthur
Cost quotes by Jerry Pournelle
#107. Everything takes longer and costs more. #Quote by Jerry Pournelle
Cost quotes by Osho
#108. But you do just the opposite. You strengthen your thought-waves. You are seized by worthless thoughts and you co-operate with them. You are sitting alone, there is nothing to do and you start thinking of fighting the coming election. The dream begins! Nothing will please you short of reaching the president's chair. You have become a president in your dream. There are felicitations and you are enjoying them thoroughly! You never stop to think – what kind of stupidity is this! What are you doing? You are just giving energy to worthless fantasies. Your mind is filled with useless illusions of this kind.
The constant flow of dreams eats up a large amount of your energy. It is not for free! You purchase it at the cost of your life.

If we examine human life in detail, we will find that ninety-nine percent of the life is lost in fruitless dreams like this. Some dream of wealth, others of power, and others of various conquests. What will you gain even if you attain them all?

Thought-waves are nothing but dreams. Do not strengthen them. When the dream starts running within, shake yourself and break the dream as quickly as you can. #Quote by Osho
Cost quotes by Walt Mossberg
#109. Books should cost less and they should be digital. #Quote by Walt Mossberg
Cost quotes by Maya Banks
#110. That's not true. You've given me something very precious indeed. Your trust, Eve. And I know what
that cost you ... A woman's trust is the most priceless gift she can give a man. Her belief in his ability to keep her safe and protect her from all harm. #Quote by Maya Banks
Cost quotes by Jeff Bezos
#111. On the Internet, companies are scale businesses, characterized by high fixed costs and relatively low variable costs. You can be two sizes: You can be big, or you can be small. It's very hard to be medium. A lot of medium-sized companies had the financing rug pulled out from under them before they could get big. #Quote by Jeff Bezos
Cost quotes by Tim Robbins
#112. If you say, I'm living in America and I have freedom of speech but I choose not to use it because it's going to cost me, well, you're not living in freedom. You're not free. #Quote by Tim Robbins
Cost quotes by Emily Skrutskie
#113. You're at the top of the world - you're the most powerful thing on the sea when you're serving under her - but there's a cost. There's always a cost. #Quote by Emily Skrutskie
Cost quotes by David Packard
#114. People, materials, facilities, money, and time are the resources available to us for conducting our business. By applying our skills, we turn these resources into useful products and services. If we do a good job, customers pay us more for our products than the sum of our costs in producing and distributing them. This difference, our profit, represents the value we add to the resources we utilize. #Quote by David Packard
Cost quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#115. Friends don't count the cost of favors. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Cost quotes by Joichi Ito
#116. Want to increase innovation? Lower the cost of failure. #Quote by Joichi Ito
Cost quotes by Takeshi Uchiyamada
#117. Because of its shortcomings - driving range, cost, and recharging time - the electric vehicle is not a viable replacement for most conventional cars. #Quote by Takeshi Uchiyamada
Cost quotes by Candace Fleming
#118. Words hold such weight and consequence. I have not always been mindful of my tongue, and it has cost me. For if given the choice, people will believe the worst of you, not the best. #Quote by Candace Fleming
Cost quotes by Hippolyte Taine
#119. Not only does the State do the work badly on a domain not its own, bunglingly, at greater cost, and with less fruit than spontaneous organizations, but, again, through the legal monopoly which it deems its prerogative, or through the overwhelming competition which it exercises, it kills or paralyzes these natural organizations or prevents their birth; and hence so many precious organs, which, absorbed, atropic or abortive, are lost to the great social body. #Quote by Hippolyte Taine
Cost quotes by Ernest Hemingway
#120. I had gone to no place where the roads were frozen and hard as iron, where it was clear cold and dry and the snow was dry and powdery and hare-tracks in the snow and the peasants took off their hats and called you Lord and there was good hunting. I had gone to no such place but to the smoke of cafés and nights when the room whirled and you needed to look at the wall to make it stop, nights in bed, drunk, when you knew that that was all there was, and the strange excitement of waking and not knowing who it was with you, and the world all unreal in the dark and so exciting that you must resume again unknowing and not caring in the night, sure that this was all and all and all and not caring. Suddenly to care very much and to sleep to wake with it sometimes morning and all that had been there gone and everything sharp and hard and clear and sometimes a dispute about the cost. Sometimes still pleasant and fond and warm and breakfast and lunch. Sometimes all niceness gone and glad to get out on the street but always another day starting and then another night. I tried to tell about the night and the difference between the night and the day and how the night was better unless the day was very clean and cold and I could not tell it; as I cannot tell it now #Quote by Ernest Hemingway
Cost quotes by Stephen Fry
#121. LSD reveals the whatness of things, their quiddity, their essence. The wateriness of water is suddenly revealed to you, the carpetness of carpets, the woodness of wood, the yellowness of yellow, the fingernailness of fingernails, the allness of all, the nothingness of all, the allness of nothing. For me music gives access to every one of these essences of existence, but at a fraction of the social or financial cost of a drug and without the need to cry "Wow!" all the time, which is one of LSD's most distressing and least endearing side-effects. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Cost quotes by Stuart Scott
#122. I'm blind in my left eye. Contrary to what people say, it is not a glass eye, so I have to protect my eyes at all cost. #Quote by Stuart Scott
Cost quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#123. The President of the United States would be liable to be impeached, tried, and upon conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors, removed from office; and would afterwards be liable to prosecution and punishment in the ordinary course of law. The person of the King of Great Britain is sacred and inviolable: There is no constitutional tribunal to which he is amenable, no punishment to which he can be subjected without involving the crisis of a national revolution. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Cost quotes by Dave Brat
#124. If you take your kid in for the sniffles, you pay $20, but the full cost is $200. And so we need to get back to the price system where you see the full cost of health care, and then people will make smarter decisions. That will reduce health care costs, and it's a huge part of our economy. #Quote by Dave Brat
Cost quotes by Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw
#125. What really got me focused on cancer was when my best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer, and even though she was a well-to-do person, I found that her treatment costs were crippling. #Quote by Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw
Cost quotes by AVIS Viswanathan
#126. When the cost of clinging on is higher than the cost of letting go, that's when we will act, that's when we often take decisive steps to change our Life. #Quote by AVIS Viswanathan
Cost quotes by Alastair Reynolds
#127. You've found a way to stay sane, Renfew--even if that means admitting a tiny piece of piano-playing madness into your world. But there's a cost to that sanity, and it isn't moi. the cost is you can't ever allow yourself an instant of hope, because hope is something that will always be crushed, crushed utterly, and in the crushing of hope you will be weakened forever, just as surely as if you'd mainlined some slow-acting poison."
~"Understanding Space & Time #Quote by Alastair Reynolds
Cost quotes by Richard Proenneke
#128. I have found that some of the simplest things have given me the most pleasure. They didn't cost me a lot of money either. They just worked on my senses. Did you ever pick very large blueberries after a summer rain Walk through a grove of cottonwoods, open like a park, and see the blue sky beyond the shimmering gold of the leaves? Pull on dry woolen socks after you've peeled off the wet ones? Come in out of the subzero and shiver yourself warm in front of a wood fire? The world is full of such things. #Quote by Richard Proenneke
Cost quotes by Alice Waters
#129. I do feel like food should cost more, because we aren't paying farmers a living wage. It has to cost more. #Quote by Alice Waters
Cost quotes by James Surowiecki
#130. When all is said and done, cheap gas is an illusion, because our reliance on gas creates a whole series of costs that aren't factored in to the pump price - among them congestion, pollution, and increased risk of accidents. #Quote by James Surowiecki
Cost quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#131. I paid for your love, and in reality, love doesn't cost a thing. The 'love' we had was dead before it started. I am not willing to revive something that isn't worth saving."

Cost quotes by Paul Kalanithi
#132. Being with patients in these moments certainly had its emotional cost, but it also had its rewards. I don't think I ever spent a minute of any day wondering why I did this work, or whether it was worth it. The call to protect life - and not merely life but another's identity; it is perhaps not too much to say another's soul - was obvious in its sacredness. Before #Quote by Paul Kalanithi
Cost quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#133. A Decalogue of Canons for Observation in Practical Life:
1. Never put off to tomorrow what you can do to-day.
2. Never trouble another with what you can do yourself.
3. Never spend your money before you have it.
4. Never buy a thing you do not want, because it is cheap, it will be dear to you.
5. Take care of your cents: Dollars will take care of themselves.

Cost quotes by J.K. Rowling
#134. I knew too where Voldemort was weak. And so I made my decision. You would be protected by an ancient magic of which he knows, which he despises, and which he has always, therefore, underestimated - to his cost. I am speaking, of course, of the fact that your mother died to save you. She gave you a lingering protection he never expected, a protection that flows in your veins to this day. I put my trust, therefore, in your mother's blood. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Cost quotes by Henry B. Eyring
#135. It is a lie that our anger justifies our impulse to hurt or ignore our antagonists. We are to forgive to be forgiven. To wait for them to repent before we forgive and repent is to allow them to choose for us a delay which could cost us happiness here and hereafter. #Quote by Henry B. Eyring
Cost quotes by Jim Horning
#136. To treat programming scientifically, it must be possible to specify the required properties of programs precisely. Formality is certainly not an end in itself. The importance of formal specifications must ultimately rest in their utility -in whether or not they are used to improve the quality of software or to reduce the cost of producing and maintaining software. #Quote by Jim Horning
Cost quotes by Michael Lewis
#137. Once very smart people are paid huge sums of money to exploit the flaws in the financial system, they have the spectacularly destructive incentive to screw the system up further, or to remain silent as they watch it being screwed up by others. The cost, in the end, is a tangled-up financial system. Untangling it requires acts of commercial heroism - and even then the fix might not work. There was simply too much more easy money to be made by elites if the system worked badly than if it worked well. The whole culture had to want to change. "We know how to cure this," as Brad had put it. "It's just a matter of whether the patient wants to be treated. #Quote by Michael Lewis

Cost quotes by Randa Manning-Johnson
#140. Most are constantly asking for more, but with that comes more responsibility and most aren't willing to or able to handle that. Greatness comes at a cost and requires an investment. If you don't want the work.... you don't want the prize. #Quote by Randa Manning-Johnson

#147. What would happen if you allowed a bug to slip through a module, and it cost

Cost quotes by Fiona Apple
#150. I have a very steadfast tendency to parent myself, to monitor my development into the person I want to be. I try to keep the corruption minimal. And though I advocate learning from my mistakes as much as making mistakes, I also try and make sure my mistakes do not cost other people. #Quote by Fiona Apple
Cost quotes by Laura M. Hughes
#151. You say glory, necessity, pride; I say barbarity, greed, arrogance. War is a search for glory, for that particular sense of joy and satisfaction that comes from staking one's life on the outcome of a gamble. The search for a cheap thrill, with a cost too dear for Midas, and on a pretext that, more or less, amounts to 'My neighbour has a thing. I want it. #Quote by Laura M. Hughes
Cost quotes by Boris Johnson
#152. Huge numbers of people in London depend on their cars. Fuel duty is becoming a big factor in people's cost of living. I believe in trying to ease these burdens. #Quote by Boris Johnson
Cost quotes by Stephen Fry
#153. Music was a kind of penetration. Perhaps absorption is a less freighted word. The penetration or absorption of everything into itself. I don't know if you have ever taken LSD, but when you do so the doors of perception, as Aldous Huxley, Jim Morrison and their adherents ceaselessly remind us, swing wide open. That is actually the sort of phrase, unless you are William Blake, that only makes sense when there is some LSD actually swimming about inside you. In the cold light of the cup of coffee and banana sandwich that are beside me now it appears to be nonsense, but I expect you to know what it is taken to mean. LSD reveals the whatness of things, their quiddity, their essence. The wateriness of water is suddenly revealed to you, the carpetness of carpets, the woodness of wood, the yellowness of yellow, the fingernailness of fingernails, the allness of all, the nothingness of all, the allness of nothing. For me music gives access to everyone of these essences, but at a fraction of the social or financial cost of a drug and without the need to cry 'Wow!' all the time, which is LSD's most distressing and least endearing side effects.
...Music in the precision of its form and the mathematical tyranny of its laws, escapes into an eternity of abstraction and an absurd sublime that is everywhere and nowhere at once. The grunt of rosin-rubbed catgut, the saliva-bubble blast of a brass tube, the sweaty-fingered squeak on a guitar fret, all that physicality, all that clumsy 'music #Quote by Stephen Fry
Cost quotes by Bear Grylls
#154. But, that guy who quit also missed the real point. Good things come through grit and hard work, and all things worthwhile have a cost. In the case of the SAS, the cost was somewhere around a thousand barrels of sweat. #Quote by Bear Grylls
Cost quotes by John Sheridan
#155. Tell the other rangers, the ambassadors, everyone is this army of light. Babylon 5 stands with you. Tell them, tell them that from this place with will deliver notice to the parliaments of conquerors that a line has been drawn against the darkness and we will hold that line no matter the cost. #Quote by John Sheridan
Cost quotes by Homer
#156. Scepticism is as much the result of knowledge, as knowledge is of scepticism. To be content with what we at present know, is, for the most part, to shut our ears against conviction; since, from the very gradual character of our education, we must continually forget, and emancipate ourselves from, knowledge previously acquired; we must set aside old notions and embrace fresh ones; and, as we learn, we must be daily unlearning something which it has cost us no small labour and anxiety to acquire. #Quote by Homer
Cost quotes by Jane Austen
#157. She performed her promise of being discreet, to admiration. - She attended to all that Mrs. Jennings had to say upon the subject, with an unchanging complexion, dissented from her in nothing, and was heard three times to say, "Yes, ma'am." - She listened to her praise of Lucy with only moving from one chair to another, and when Mrs. Jennings talked of Edward's affection, it cost her only a spasm in her throat. - Such advances towards heroism in her sister, made Elinor feel equal to any thing herself. #Quote by Jane Austen
Cost quotes by Michael Dell
#158. Every breakthrough business idea begins with solving a common problem. The bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity. I discovered a big one when I took apart an IBM PC. I made two interesting discoveries: The components were all manufactured by other companies, and the system that retailed for $3,000 cost about $600 in parts. #Quote by Michael Dell
Cost quotes by Ali Wong
#159. A reporter once asked me why I think progressive men who earn significantly less than their breadwinning wives still won't quit their jobs to take care of their children. Why do they still hold on to their careers, even if taking care of the children would make more financial sense because the cost of childcare is higher than their net salary?
I think I know the answer to that now, and it sucks. Women are not expected to live a life for themselves. When women dedicate their lives to children, it is deemed a worthy and respectable choice. When women dedicate themselves to a passion outside of the family that doesn't involve worshiping their husbands or taking care of their kids, they're seen as selfish, cold, or unfit mothers. But when a man spends hours grueling over a craft, profession, or project, he's admired and seen as a genius. And when a man finds a woman who worships him, who dedicates her life to serving him, he's lucky. But when a man dedicates himself to taking care of his children it's seen as a last resort. That it must be because he ran out of other options. That it's plan Z. That it's an indicator of his inability to provide for his family. Basically, that he's a fucking loser. I think it's one of the most important falsehoods we need to shatter when talking about women's rights. #Quote by Ali Wong
Cost quotes by Philip Pullman
#160. Lyra learns to her great cost that fantasy isn't enough. She has been lying all her life, telling stories to people, making up fantasies, and suddenly she comes to a point where that's not enough. All she can do is tell the truth. She tells the truth about her childhood, about the experiences she had in Oxford, and that is what saves her. True experience, not fantasy - reality, not lies - is what saves us in the end. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Cost quotes by Sendhil Mullainathan
#161. One cost, for the lonely: If you want to be interesting, the one thing you shouldn't do is really focus on the fact that 'I want this person to like me.' That's going to make you very uninteresting. But the lonely, they just can't help but focus on that. #Quote by Sendhil Mullainathan
Cost quotes by Scott Simon
#162. It's not the cost (although that pinches), or the time (though that grinds). After a while, it's the sheer galling indignity of being asked to prove, pay, and prove all over again that you're a worthy parent. Any true parent will tell you that that is impossible to prove in advance. #Quote by Scott Simon
Cost quotes by Alexander MacLaren
#163. Self-preservation is not a man's first duty: flight is his last. Better and wiser and infinitely nobler to stand a mark for the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" and to stop at our post though we fall there, better infinitely to toil on, even when toil seems vain, than cowardly to keep a whole skin at the cost of a wounded conscience or despairingly to fling up work, because the ground is hard and the growth of the seed imperceptible. Prudent advices, when the prudence is only inspired by sense, are generally foolish. #Quote by Alexander MacLaren
Cost quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#164. He that has energy enough in his constitution to root out a vice should go a little further, and try to plant a virtue in its place; otherwise he will have his labor to renew. A strong soil that has produced weeds may be made to produce wheat with far less difficulty than it would cost to make it produce nothing. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Cost quotes by Julie Guthman
#165. In any case, seeing care for certain groups as an excessive cost reflects an arguably perverse way of thinking about health care in terms of human need. [ ... ] In other words, care for the sick is an economic burden only in health care systems where profit is the bottom line and public services are underfunded and politically unsupported - that is, systems in which only market logic is considered legitimate. #Quote by Julie Guthman
Cost quotes by Oswald Chambers
#166. Am I prepared to let God grip me by His power and do a work in me that is worthy of Himself? Sanctification is not my idea of what I want God to do for me; sanctification is God's idea of what He wants to do for me, and He has to get me into the attitude of mind and spirit where at any cost I will let Him sanctify me wholly. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Cost quotes by Shel Silverstein
#167. Ourchestra: So you haven't got a drum, just beat your belly. So I haven't got a horn-I'll play my nose. So we haven't any cymbals- We'll just slap our hands together, And though there may be orchestras That sound a little better With their fancy shiny instruments That cost an awful lot- Hey, we're making music twice as good By playing what we've got! #Quote by Shel Silverstein
Cost quotes by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
#168. You show me pollution and I will show you people who are not paying their own way, people who are stealing from the public, people who are getting the public to pay their costs of production. All environmental pollution is a subsidy. #Quote by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Cost quotes by Michel Foucault
#169. If repression has indeed been the fundamental link between power, knowledge, and sexuality since the classical age, it stands to reason that we will not be able to free ourselves from it except at a considerable cost. #Quote by Michel Foucault
Cost quotes by Jefferson Bethke
#170. He actually does the opposite. He says, "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it."1 If Jesus wanted to grow a church, didn't he know telling people they need to daily pick up an instrument of torture, death, and shame wasn't the way to do it? Jesus opposed the pharisaical legalism of his time, but he also opposed the watered-down, flimsy, cultural religion. He was essentially saying, "I know my miracles are awesome. I know I have immense power. But don't follow me for the wrong reason. The cost is high. The road to follow me is tough, it's painful, it hurts, and you might even face death, but I promise there is joy on the other side. Do you want in? #Quote by Jefferson Bethke
Cost quotes by Michael J. Boskin
#171. New and expanded refundable tax credits would raise the fraction of taxpayers paying no income taxes to almost 50% from 38%. This is potentially the most pernicious feature of the president's budget, because it would cement a permanent voting majority with no stake in controlling the cost of general government. #Quote by Michael J. Boskin
Cost quotes by Bryant McGill
#172. Wisdom doesn't come easily or without a cost; in fact, wisdom often costs us dearly. Your wisdom will run about as deep as the pain that has cut you. There are very few shortcuts in life, if any. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Cost quotes by Paul Cornell
#173. Big construction companies, making millions on underground developments such as this, had initially gone to the bother of bringing in cranes to lift mechanical diggers, once their work was done, out of their excavations. Then they'd realized that the cost-benefit analysis actually tipped in the direction of just finding somewhere to hide the digger and leaving it entombed in a wall, the company sometimes going just a little bit beyond the planning permission they'd been given for the few days it took to do so. Ballard had slipped someone at City Hall some cash to get a look at the plans and realized that, yes, the only place the digger could have been entombed was right up against the bank.

#174. Doing things the right way now is the cost of your future. #Quote by Johnnie Dent Jr.
Cost quotes by John Elkington
#175. The biggest weakness of the green-consumer movement, always, is that we tend to pick the easy-to-do things because that's where we can most readily engage people. It doesn't cost them very much to switch products or whatever it happens to be. #Quote by John Elkington
Cost quotes by Sheena Iyengar
#176. True choice requires that a person have the ability to choose an option and not be prevented from choosing it by any external force, meaning that a system tending too far toward either extreme will limit People's opportunities. Also, both extremes can produce additional problems in practice. Aside from the fact that a lack of "freedom to" can lead to privation, suffering, and death for those who can't provide for themselves, it can also lead to a de facto plutocracy.
The extremely wealthy can come to wield disproportionate power, enabling them to avoid punishment for illegal practices or to change the law itself in ways that perpetuate their advantages at the cost of others, a charge often levied against the "robber baron" industrialists of the late nineteenth century.
A lack of "freedom from," on the other hand, can encourage people to do less work than they're capable of since they know their needs will be met, and it may stifle innovation and entrepreneurship because people receive few or no additional material benefits for exerting additional effort.
Moreover, a government must have extensive power over its people to implement such a system, and as can be seen in the actions of the majority of communist governments in the past, power corrupts. #Quote by Sheena Iyengar
Cost quotes by Satya Nadella
#177. My ambition with connectivity is not to fly balloons in the national airspace of other countries, but my dream is to be able to enable the local entrepreneurs to have low-cost connectivity solutions. #Quote by Satya Nadella
Cost quotes by John Bolton
#178. Swapping Bergdahl for illegal enemy combatants (terrorists, in common parlance) signaled unmistakably to Taliban and al Qaeda that Obama is determined to withdraw from Afghanistan no matter what the cost to the United States or those in Afghanistan fighting to remain free. #Quote by John Bolton
Cost quotes by Mark McCormack
#179. I am convinced that most companies don't maximize their barter possibilities. Instead of aggressively reducing costs by trading their services with those of their suppliers, they seem content to pay top dollar for everything. #Quote by Mark McCormack
Cost quotes by Robin Hobb
#180. Innocent?" He was incensed at her suggestion he was somehow responsible for this mess. "I've done nothing wrong, I intend nothing wrong. I am innocent!"
"Half the evil in this world occurs while decent people stand by and do nothing wrong. It's not enough to refrain from evil, Trell. People have to attempt to do right, even if they believe they cannot succeed."
"Even when it's stupid to try?" he asked with savage sarcasm.
"Especially then," she replied sweetly. "That's how it's done, Trell. You break your heart against this stony world. You fling yourself at it, on the side of good, and you do not ask the cost. That's how you do it. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Cost quotes by Timothy Keller
#181. Jesus Christ, who had all the power in the world, saw us enslaved by the very things we thought would free us ... He laid aside the infinities and immensities of His being and, at the cost of His life, paid the debt for our sins, purchasing us the only place our hearts can rest, in His Father's house. Knowing He did this will transform us from the inside out. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Cost quotes by Robert Galbraith
#182. You could find beauty nearly anywhere if you stopped to look for it, but the battle to get through the days made it easy to forget that this totally cost-free luxury existed. #Quote by Robert Galbraith
Cost quotes by Tom DeMarco
#183. Good management is the lifeblood of the healthy corporate body. Getting rid of it to save cost is like losing weight by giving blood. #Quote by Tom DeMarco
Cost quotes by Stephen King
#184. The road and the tale have both been long, would you not say so? The trip has been long and the cost has been high ... but no great thing was ever attained easily. A long tale, like a tall Tower, must be built a stone at a time. #Quote by Stephen King
Cost quotes by Stephen King
#185. It's better to be good than evil, but one achieves goodness at a tremendous cost. #Quote by Stephen King
Cost quotes by John Green
#186. By far the best cure for hangovers is not drinking excessively the night before.This cure has a 100% success rate, and as you save the cost of the drinks you would have otherwise drunk, it is cheaper than free. #Quote by John Green
Cost quotes by Joseph-Louis Lagrange
#187. It has cost them but a moment to cut off that head; but a hundred years will not be sufficient to produce another like it. #Quote by Joseph-Louis Lagrange
Cost quotes by Katherine Woodward Thomas
#188. If you are operating under the illusion that you can continue to hold on to people who you know are not good for you, and still create an extraordinary life filled with love and fulfillment, then you are fooling yourself. Toxic ties cost us and they cost us big time. If you are feeling stuck in your life, look to see who or what it is that you are stuck to. #Quote by Katherine Woodward Thomas
Cost quotes by Adil Adam Memon
#189. Being happy at others cost ... not a sign of humanity. #Quote by Adil Adam Memon
Cost quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#190. Here was one representative example of Richard Hedd's highly esteemed Asian Communism and the Oriental Mode of Destruction: The Vietnamese peasant will not object to the use of airpower, for he is apolitical, interested only in feeding himself and his family. Bombing his village will of course upset him, but the cost is outweighed ultimately by how airpower will persuade him that he is on the wrong side if he chooses communism, which cannot protect him. (p. 126) #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Cost quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#191. The government is tottering. We must deal it the death blow an any cost. To delay action is the same as death. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
Cost quotes by Helen Roseveare
#192. There really is no cost, only the privilege of serving the King of Kings. #Quote by Helen Roseveare
Cost quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#193. These people in the establishment have been telling us they're the ones to fix everything and everything they've tried to fix, they've botched - TARP, the recession fix such as the stimulus bill. Look at the college - college education is an impediment because of how much it costs. A college education is no longer a step up. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Cost quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein
#194. You could attach prices to thoughts. Some cost a lot, some a little. And how does one pay for thoughts? The answer, I think, is: with courage. #Quote by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Cost quotes by Naomi Oreskes
#195. A similar phenomenon developed with acid rain in the 1990s, as the media attended to the idea that its cause was still not established - more than a decade after that was no longer true - or the claim that it would cost more to fix than it was worth, which was unsupported by evidence. #Quote by Naomi Oreskes
Cost quotes by Tony Robbins
#196. All personal breakthroughs begin with a change in beliefs. So how do we change? The most effective way is to get your brain to associate massive pain to the old belief. You must feel deep in your gut that not only has this belief cost you pain in the past, but it's costing you in the present and, ultimately, can only bring you pain in the future. Then you must associate tremendous pleasure to the idea of adopting a new, empowering belief. #Quote by Tony Robbins
Cost quotes by Charles Stanley
#197. Dealing with adversity is like preparing for surgery. By putting our faith in what the doctor has said, we believe we will be better off if we have the surgery. But that does not make it any less painful. By submitting to the hand of a surgeon, we are saying that our ultimate goal is health, even at the cost of pain. Adversity is the same way. It is a means to an end. It is God's tool for the advancement of our spiritual lives. #Quote by Charles Stanley
Cost quotes by Jerry Bridges
#198. Grace is not a matter of God's making up the difference, but of God's providing all the "cost" of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Cost quotes by R. Martinez
#199. Enjoy the silence, because one wrong action cost more than a million words. #Quote by R. Martinez
Cost quotes by Frank Herbert
#200. I remember friends from wars all but we forgot.
All of them distilled into each wound we caught.
Those wounds are all painful places where we fought.
Battles never left behind, ones we never sought.
What is it that we spent and what was it we bought? #Quote by Frank Herbert
