Purchased

Famous quotes containing the word purchased:

    Nothing has been purchased more dearly than the little bit of reason and sense of freedom which now constitutes our pride.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The class at Harvard in 1851, have purchased for themselves a notoriety they will not covet in years to come.
    Harriot K. Hunt (1805–1875)

    I am not able to instruct you. I can only tell that I have chosen wrong. I have passed my time in study without experience; in the attainment of sciences which can, for the most part, be but remotely useful to mankind. I have purchased knowledge at the expense of all the common comforts of life: I have missed the endearing elegance of female friendship, and the happy commerce of domestic tenderness.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
