Famous quotes containing the word costs:

    Pride can go without domestics, without fine clothes, can live in a house with two rooms, can eat potato, purslain, beans, lyed corn, can work on the soil, can travel afoot, can talk with poor men, or sit silent well contented with fine saloons. But vanity costs money, labor, horses, men, women, health and peace, and is still nothing at last; a long way leading nowhere.—Only one drawback; proud people are intolerably selfish, and the vain are gentle and giving.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The real price of everything, what everything really costs to the man who wants to acquire it, is the toil and trouble of acquiring it.
    Adam Smith (1723–1790)

    It costs more to maintain ten vices than one virtue.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
