Famous quotes containing the word purchase:

    When thou, poor Excommunicate
    From all the joys of love, shalt see
    The full reward and glorious fate
    Which my strong faith shall purchase me,
    Then curse thine own inconstancy!
    Thomas Carew (1589–1639)

    O, let us have him, for his silver hairs
    Will purchase us a good opinion,
    And buy men’s voices to commend our deeds.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Riches are valuable at all times, and to all men; because they always purchase pleasures, such as men are accustomed to, and desire: Nor can any thing restrain or regulate the love of money, but a sense of honour and virtue; which, if it be not nearly equal at all times, will naturally abound most in ages of knowledge and refinement.
    David Hume (1711–1776)
