Social Costs

Famous quotes containing the words social and/or costs:

    ...A shadow now occasionally crossed my simple, sanguine, and life enjoying mind, a notion that I was never really going to accomplish those powerful literary works which would blow a noble trumpet to social generosity and noblesse oblige before the world. What? should I find myself always planning and never achieving ... a richly complicated and yet firmly unified novel?
    Sarah N. Cleghorn (1876–1959)

    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)
