Gurdjieff: Payment

G. I. Gurdjieff“Man never on any account wants to pay for anything; and above all he does not want to pay for what is most important for him. You now know that everything must be paid for and that it must be paid for in proportion to what is received. But usually a man thinks to the contrary. For trifles, for things that are perfectly useless to him, he will pay anything. But for something important, never. This must come to him of itself.”–G. I. Gurdjieff, from In Search of the Miraculous, by P. D. Ouspensky

“This is especially true today, when so many people, influenced by the Internet, believe that everything, even music and books, should be free, that somehow they ‘deserve’ them.”–Dennis Lewis
