Talk:John Ruskin

From Wikiquote
Jump to: navigation, search

I have been using a quote for many years without knowing to whom it should be attributed. I have just now found several sites which attribute it to John Ruskin. I would like confirmation of this from anyone who knows, and the correct information for the attribution. Here is the quote:

The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Can anyone help with the cite? ______


The Wagner quote is lifted from the comments on the following blog (well worth reading) http://crookedtimber.org/2005/05/05/twilight-of-the-gods/ --Meika 21:51, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

  • When love and skill work together expect a masterpiece.
  • Do not seek pleasure everywhere but always be ready to find it.
  • The highest reward for a person's toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it.
