value

A Quote by unknown on business, direction, government, inflation, statistics, and value

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is one of the more insidious statistics developed by our government because it directs the hostility of the inflation-weary public toward business and the marketplace instead of toward the cause: government mismanagement of currency and credit. . . . Real prices are not going up! The value of currency is going down.

A Quote by unknown on eternity, learning, mistakes, and value

You would do well to learn that there is no credit buying of eternal things. Things of eternal value must be paid for in advance. The mistakes, the penalties must be paid for afterwards.

A Quote by Ulysses S. Grant on belief, fighting, indifference, sharing, slavery, time, value, world, and worth

The issue of slavery provoked little moral indignation in General Grant, and in the first days following the attack on Fort Sumter, he seems to have believed that the North shared his indifference to abolition: "In all this I can but see the doom of Slavery. The North do not want, nor will they want, to interfere with the institution. But they will refuse for all time to give it protection unless the South shall return soon to their allegiance, and then too this disturbance will give such an impetus to the production of their staple, cotton, in other parts of the world that they can never recover the controll of the market again for that comodity. This will reduce the value of negroes so much that they will never be worth fighting over again."

A Quote by Thomas Stearns Eliot on conformity, judgment, and value

We do not quite say that the new is more valuable because it fits in; but its fitting in is a test of its value - a test, it is true, which can only be slowly and cautiously applied, for we are none of us infallible judges of conformity.

T.S. Eliot (1888 - 1965)
