We're well known for our great professional indemnity insurance quotes...
...but as well as insurance quotes, here in the office we also enjoy reading the literary kind which are inspired and can create debate.
From Churchill to Lennon we've got quite a collection and thought it would be good to share some of our favourites every now and again.
Here's a common favourite which cleverly articulates good old common sense. It was written by the prominent Victorian social thinker and philanthropist John Ruskin and is every bit as relevant today as it was when it was written in 1856.
The Common Law of Business Balance...
"It's unwise to pay too much...but it's worse 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 was incapable of doing the thing it was bought 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."
John Ruskin - 1856
