"There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man's lawful prey.  It's unwise to pay too little.  When you pay too much, you may lose a little money - that is all.  When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing what you bought it 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."

John Ruskin
