Famous quotes containing the word sale:

    People buy their necessities in shops and have to pay dearly for them because they have to assist in paying for what is also on sale there but only rarely finds purchasers: the luxury and amusement goods. So it is that luxury continually imposes a tax on the simple people who have to do without it.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    [T]he dignity of parliament it seems can brook no opposition to it’s power. Strange that a set of men who have made sale of their virtue to the minister should yet talk of retaining dignity!
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    I keep thinking that what I need
    to do is buy my leg back.
    Surely it is for sale somewhere,
    poor broken tool, poor ornament.
    It might be in a store somewhere beside a lady’s scarf.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
