The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it.
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Falling in love, romance, matters of the heart - when you fall in love, on some biochemical level you know there is a chance it won't work out.

Susan B. Anthony
For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice - no paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.

Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.
As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

Grief is the price we pay for love.
Queen Elizabeth II

Choice of attention - to pay attention to this and ignore that - is to the inner life what choice of action is to the outer. In both cases, a man is responsible for his choice and must accept the consequences, whatever they may be.
W. H. Auden
The fight for justice against corruption is never easy. It never has been and never will be. It exacts a toll on our self, our families, our friends, and especially our children. In the end, I believe, as in my case, the price we pay is well worth holding on to our dignity.
