Famous quotes containing the word paid:

    Let every woman ask herself: “Why am I the slave of man? Why is my brain said not to be the equal of his brain? Why is my work not paid equally with his? Why must my body be controlled by my husband? Why may he take my labor in the household, giving me in exchange what he deems fit? Why may he take my children from me? Will them away while yet unborn?” Let every woman ask.
    Voltairine Decleyre (1866–1912)

    There never has been a time in our history when work was so abundant or when wages were as high, whether measured by the currency in which they are paid or by their power to supply the necessaries and comforts of life.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)

    Nothing begins, and nothing ends,
    That is not paid with moan,
    For we are born in other’s pain,
    And perish in our own.
    Francis Thompson (1859–1907)
