I never settle for less than perfection.

Interesting to read:

Some food for thought:

"There is nothing in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and he who considers price only is that man's lawful prey.

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

"Il vaut mieux être réputé (trop) cher, car le contraire, une réputation de prostitution linguistique, on n’arrive jamais à s’en débarasser."
