QotD: John Ruskin on price-sensitive buyers

Коллеги подгоняют цитаты по работе.

There is hardly anything in this world which some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are this man's lawful prey, as it is unwise to pay too much as it is to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money — that is all. When you pay too little you risk losing everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the job it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot — it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.
