Famous quotes containing the word exchange:

    I should like not to exchange any of my life for money.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Ideal conversation must be an exchange of thought, and not, as many of those who worry most about their shortcomings believe, an eloquent exhibition of wit or oratory.
    Emily Post (1873–1960)

    So long as the system of competition in the production and exchange of the means of life goes on, the degradation of the arts will go on; and if that system is to last for ever, then art is doomed, and will surely die; that is to say, civilization will die.
    William Morris (1834–1896)
