Real happiness is cheap enough, yet how dearly we pay for its counterfeit.
I don't know what it is about fecundity that so appals. I suppose it is the teeming evidence that birth and growth, which we value, are ubiquitous and blind, that life itself is so astonishingly Cheap, that nature is as careless as it is bountiful, and that with extravagance goes a crushing waste that will one day include our own Cheap lives.Annie Dillard
(About Pop Idols) Obviously, it's designed by record company executives who want a Cheap success, and they don't want to give money to anybody and they don't want to give contracts, so they've created this world of very bubbly teenagers who want to be "idols" and they think all they have to do is mime quite well and they've made it. ... But it's not the problem of the kids, it's the problem of the record companies, because it's just an inexpensive way for them to have so-called, I won't say "artists", but erm...You're nodding, you know what I mean.morrissey
True patriotism isn't Cheap. It's about taking on a fair share of the burden of keeping America going.Robert Reich
Is faith so Cheap, my child? Faith is the last word. If one has faith, the goal is practically reached.sarada devi
The reputation of generosity is to be purchased pretty Cheap; it does not depend so much upon a man’s general expense, as it does upon his giving handsomely where it is proper to give at all. A man, for instance, who should give a servant four shillings, would pass for covetous, while he who gave him a crown, would be reckoned generous; so that the difference of those two opposite characters, turns upon one shilling.stanhope, philip, 4th earl of chesterfield
Independence, the freedom of a self-governing nation, is in my estimation the highest political good, for which any disadvantage, if need be, and any sacrifice are a Cheap price.enoch powell
Oh! God! that bread should be so dear, And flesh and blood so Cheap!Honorius of Autun
We are ruined by Chinese Cheap labour.
John Lennon at his best despised Cheap sentiment and had to learn the hard way that once you've made your mark on history those who can't will be so grateful they'll turn it into a cage for you.lester bangs
I am just thinking how unfair it is of you to quote their own words. It is a low blow to use what ExxonMobil has actually said against them. I mean, that is kind of a Cheap shot, don't you think?joe barton
It cannot be emphasized too strongly that art, as such, does not "pay," to use an American expression – at least, not in the beginning – and that the art that has to pay its own way is apt to become vitiated and Cheap.antonín dvořák
A thought crossed his mind: How do you make poor people feel wealthy when wages are stagnant? You give them Cheap loans.michael lewis
The slow-rising central horror of "Watergate" is not that it might grind down to the reluctant impeachment of a vengeful thug of a president whose entire political career has been a monument to the same kind of Cheap shots and treachery he finally got nailed for, but that we might somehow fail to learn something from it.hunter s. thompson
Oh, God! that bread should be so dear,And flesh and blood so Cheap!thomas hood
Fame then was Cheap, and the first comer sped; And they have kept it since by being dead.john dryden
Creative work, in geology and anywhere else, is interaction and synthesis: half-baked ideas from a barroom, rocks in the field, chains of thought from lonely walks, numbers squeezed from rocks in a laboratory, numbers from a calculator riveted to a desk, fancy equipment usually malfunctioning on expensive ships, Cheap equipment in the human cranium, arguments before a roadcut.stephen jay gould
If I were asked what book is better than a Cheap book, I should answer that there is one book better than a Cheap book, and that is a book honestly come by.james russell lowell
As for gentlemen, they be made good Cheap in this kingdom; for whosoever studieth the laws of the realm, who studieth in the Universities, who professeth the liberal sciences, and (to be short) who can live idly, and without manual labour, and will bear the port, charge, and countenance of a gentleman, he shall be called master, and shall be taken for a gentleman.
I hold your dainties Cheap, sir, and your welcome dear.william shakespeare
Nationalism is like Cheap alcohol: First, it makes you drunk, then it makes you blind, and then it kills you.".
Is faith so Cheap, my child? Faith is the last word. If one has faith, the goal is practically reached.
The Theatre of the Absurd ... can be seen as the reflection of what seems to be the attitude most genuinely representative of our own time. The hallmark of this attitude is its sense that the certitudes and unshakable basic assumptions of former ages have been swept away, that they have been tested and found wanting, that they have been discredited as Cheap and somewhat childish illusions.
