The Price |  Some thoughts

There is hardly anything in the world that
someone could not make a bit worse
and sell a bit cheaper;

and the persons who orientate themselves
only by the price become the just prey
of such wheelings and dealings.

It is unwise to pay too much,
but it is yet worse to pay too little.

If they pay too much they
lose some money, that is all.

The one who pays on the other hand too little
sometimes loses everything because
the desired object cannot fulfill the task
it was supposed to fulfill.

The law of economy forbids to receive
much value for little money.

The one who accepts the lowest offer
must add something for the risk taken on.
And the one who does so has enough money
to get something better.
