[I Bargained With Life For A Penny,And Life Would Pay No More, However I Begged At EveningWhen I Counted My Scanty Store;For Life Is Just An Employer,He Gives You What You Ask,But Once You Have Set The Wages,Why, You Must Bear The Task.I Worked For A Menial's Hire,Only To Learn, Dismayed,That Any Wage I Had Asked Of Life,Life Would Have Paid.]

Lee Thompson Quotes

"...people change, even good people, if they get the wrong thing in their head. And not everything is always what it looks like and sometimes just because one person looks weak, they might be very strong, and another person might look like a spooky freak but he might be one of the kindest people youd ever meet. And I guess I learned that time is slippery...We have to enjoy every second, love with all our hearts, all we can, while we can."

Quotes About Society And Culture

"We are accused of being obsessed by property. The truth is the other way round. It is the society and culture in question which is so obsessed. Yet to an obsessive his obsession always seems to be of the nature of things and so is not recognized for what it is. The relation between property and art in European culture appears natural to that culture, and consequently if somebody demonstrates the extent of the property interest in a given cultural field, it is said to be a demonstration of his obsession. And this allows the Cultural Establishment to project for a little longer its false rationalized image of itself." - Author: John Berger
