English term or phrase:law of diminishing returns
"How long do I keep it up?"
"When it ain't worth it any more, quit. You know, the **law of diminishing returns**, they call it. You keep getting less and less for your efforts and it gets to where it don't make sense to go on any more."
Yes, it's not very authentic-sounding dialog. I'm just interested in the phrase. Thanks!
