Top Quotes About Price Rise
1. "In regards to the price of commodities, the rise of wages operates as simple interest does, the rise of profit operates like compound interest. Our merchants and masters complain much of the bad effects of high wages in raising the price and lessening the sale of goods. They say nothing concerning the bad effects of high profits. They are silent with regard to the pernicious effects of their own gains. They complain only of those of other people."
Author: Adam Smith
2. "Common to all these types is the anthropomorphic character of their conception of God. In general, only individuals of exceptional endowments, and exceptionally high-minded communities, rise to any considerable extent above this level. But there is a third stage of religious experience which belongs to all of them, even though it is rarely found in a pure form: I shall call it cosmic religious feeling. It is very difficult to elucidate this feeling to anyone who is entirely without it, especially as there is no anthropomorphic conception of God corresponding to it."
Author: Albert Einstein

Author: David Brin
5. "A rise of wages from this cause will, indeed, be invariably accompanied by a rise in the price of commodities; but in such cases, it will be found that labour and all commodities have not varied in regard to each other, and that the variation has been confined to money."
Author: David Ricardo
6. "Both outer and inner phenomena arise as a result of causes and conditions. Outer phenomena, the things of the physical world, arise in a series of seven steps. The texts use the example of a seed giving rise to a plant that gives rise to a fruit. The seven steps are: seed, sprout, leaflets, stemmed plant, bud, flower, fruit. Each stage succeeds the previous one in time and in order, each giving rise to the next."
Author: Dharma Publishing
7. "Men like Carew, he knows, tend to blame him, Cromwell, for Anne's rise in the world; he facilitated it, he broke the old marriage and let in the new. He does not expect them to soften to him, to include him in their companionship; he only wants them not to spit in his dinner."
Author: Hilary Mantel
8. "Now, one hears from a long time ago that "white is merely a state of mind." I add to that, white is a moral choice. It's up to you to be as white as you want to be and pay the price of that ticket. You cannot tell a black man by the color of skin, either. But this is a democracy."
Author: James Baldwin
9. "Still, it strikes me that, taken together, they do make an argument, and it is this: the rise of American democracy is bound up with the history of reading and writing, which is one of the reasons the study of American history is inseparable from the study of American literature. In the early United States, literacy rates rose and the price of books and magazines and newspapers fell during the same decades that suffrage was being extended. With everything from constitutions and ballots to almanacs and novels, American wrote and read their way into a political culture inked and stamped and pressed in print."
Author: Jill Lepore
10. "Wealth is walking into any bookshop and buying any book you want without looking at the price tag."

11. "The whole rise of new adult contemporary music and smooth jazz was a nice surprise."
Author: Kenny G
12. "And me, I got what I wanted.I died with my life around me."Isn't that what any of us would ask for, to be fully in our lives as we leave them, to have been ourselves all the way first? This is the gift that Phil's love is giving to Bill. I know what the price of this is for Phil- the exhaustion, the continuous focus on another, the postponement of one's own needs, but he can't see himself the depth and magnitude of the gift; he is so far inside it he has no means to measure. What I'm seeing is the kindest and sweetest mirror of the last of my life with Wally, and so rather than returning me to difficulty and pain, the visit is somehow restorative, bracingly genuine, consoling. Where could it be clearer, here in the heart of abandonment, what love achieves?"
Author: Mark Doty
13. "But the power of science lies in open publication, which, with the rise of the Internet, is no longer constrained by the price of paper."
Author: Michael Shermer
14. "One's days were too brief to take the burden of another's errors on one's shoulders. Each man lived his own life and paid his own price for living it."
Author: Oscar Wilde
15. "But, Foley, my lad, it isn't beauty per se that makes wire-walking Zen or makes it art. It's the extremity of the risks that are assumed by each exquisite gesture, each impossible somersault. Here's a more extreme version of the dangerous beauty bullfights used to possess before the matadors became preening cowards and stacked the desk against the beasts. We only rise above mediocrity when there's something at stake, and I mean something more consequential than money or reputation. The great value of a high-wire act is that it has no practical value. The fact that so much skill and effort and courage can be directed into something so ostensibly useless is what makes it useful. That's what affords it the power to lift us out of context and carry us-elsewhere."
Author: Tom Robbins
16. "When the war has lasted twenty years...the dragonets will come.When the land is soaked in blood and tears...the dragonets will come.Find the SeaWing egg of deepest blue.Wings of night shall come to you.The largest egg in mountain highwill give to you the wings of sky.For wings of earth, search through the mudfor an egg the color of dragon blood.And hidden alone from the rival queens,the SandWing egg awaits unseen.Of three queens who blister and blaze and burn,two shall die and one shall learnif she bows to a fate that is stronger and higher,she'll have the power of wings of fire.Five eggs to hatch on brightest night,five dragons born to end the fight.Darkness will rise to bring the light.The dragonets are coming...."
