Famous quotes containing the words prize and/or money:

    I prize the purity of his character as highly as I do that of hers. As a moral being, whatever it is morally wrong for her to do, it is morally wrong for him to do. The fallacious doctrine of male and female virtues has well nigh ruined all that is morally great and lovely in his character: he has been quite as deep a sufferer by it as woman, though mostly in different respects and by other processes.
    Angelina Grimké (1805–1879)

    I hate him for he is a Christian;
    But more, for that in low simplicity
    He lends out money gratis, and brings down
    The rate of usance here with us in Venice.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
