Here’s more, inspired my lots of West Wing watching. (Yes, I’ve seen it all before… but if you haven’t yet, you must. It’s truly an amazing TV Show, even now it’s not all new and trendy). Anyway, this was a quote from American revolutionary Thomas Paine, who wrote “Common Sense”,
What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly;
it is dearness only that gives everything its value.
Isn’t that lovely.
