Corporate philosophy

It has been said, although probably not really by John Ruskin...

There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are that person's lawful prey. It is unwise to pay too much, but it is also unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. 

It can't be done. 

If you deal with the lowest bidder it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.

-attributed to John Ruskin

I love this quote, no matter who really said it.  Perhaps I should it post it as our corporate policy to answer those critics who say, "The Notes 6 classes will let you manipulate rich text.  Why use Midas?" or "The Exchange Connector will convert doclinks automatically too.  Why use COEX! Links?".
