Pay Dues

Famous quotes containing the words pay and/or dues:

    Or don’t you know, so exceedingly clever as you are, that a vain tongue must pay the penalty?
    Aeschylus (525–456 B.C.)

    Like a tale of little meaning though the words are strong;
    Chanted from an ill-used race of men that cleave the soil,
    Sow the seed, and reap the harvest with enduring toil,
    Storing yearly little dues of wheat, and wine and oil;
    Till they perish and they suffer—some, ‘tis
    whispered—down in hell
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
