Famous quotes containing the word costs:

    To exercise power costs effort and demands courage. That is why so many fail to assert rights to which they are perfectly entitled—because a right is a kind of power but they are too lazy or too cowardly to exercise it. The virtues which cloak these faults are called patience and forbearance.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    When over Catholics the ocean rolls,
    They must wait several weeks before a mass
    Takes off one peck of purgatorial coals,
    Because, till people know what’s come to pass,
    They won’t lay out their money on the dead—
    It costs three francs for every mass that’s said.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    That which costs little is less valued.
    Miguel De Cervantes (1547–1616)
