I saw this quotation from John Ruskin whilst buying a cup of tea and a sandwich in a cafe today on my way to a client's office.

"There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey."

Well it struck a cord with me and I am sure I will use it in the future.

How much did they charge you for the tea?

I thought £42.60 for a toasted cheese sandwich and a cup of tea was a bit steep but very tasty!

And therefore the busiest man is he who makes worse and sells cheap!
Sadly!
