What a man does for pay is of little significance. What he is, as a sensitive instrument responsive to the world’s beauty, is everything!
Sometimes one pays most for things one gets for nothing.
I never had huge amounts of money when I was young. I had huge amounts of fame, and I always had the sense of labor and recompense. I always said I don’t want to work for pay, but I want to get paid for my song.
I didn’t want to write for pay. I wanted to be paid for what I write.
For the sin that ye do by two and two ye must pay for one by one!
Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.
