Famous quotes containing the word paid:

    Sure smokers have made personal choices. And they pay for those choices every day, whether sitting through an airline flight dying for a smoke, or dying for a smoke in the oncology wing of a hospital. The tobacco companies have not paid nearly enough for the killing.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

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

    When white men were willing to put their own offspring in the kitchen and corn field and allowed them to be sold into bondage as slaves and degraded them as another man’s slave, the retribution of wrath was hanging over this country and the South paid penance in four years of bloody war.
    Rebecca Latimer Felton (1835–1930)
