It is unwise to pay too much, but worse still to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose some money, it's true, but that's all. On the other hand, when you pay too little, you risk losing everything because what you bought is not able to do the job you bought it for. The common law of business denies the possibility of paying little and getting a lot; this cannot happen. If you deal with the least expensive bidder, it is good that you provide a certain reserve to cover yourself from the risk you run. But if you can do this, you will certainly have enough money to buy something better. All quality jobs must have a cost proportionate to the skill, cost and risk inherent in their preparation. The good things are not obtained through compromises or through modifications and cannot be produced with little expense whatever the process used for their manufacture. They bring much less to the maker than the so-called cheap ones.
