Famous quotes containing the word paid:

    Nothing exists except by virtue of a disequilibrium, an injustice. All existence is a theft paid for by other existences; no life flowers except on a cemetery.
    Rémy De Gourmont (1858–1915)

    There is no rule more invariable than that we are paid for our suspicions by finding what we suspected.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    To give money to a sufferer is only a come-off. It is only a postponement of the real payment, a bribe paid for silence, a credit system in which a paper promise to pay answers for the time instead of liquidation. We owe to man higher succors than food and fire. We owe to man.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
