Jorge Bucay
“—Lo que determina que algo sea caro o barato es la comparación entre el precio (lo que cuesta) y el valor (lo que vale). No entre lo que cuesta y lo que tienes.

Es caro, Demi, aquello que cuesta más de lo que vale.

—Más de lo que vale... Claro, por eso hay muchas cosas por las que siento que estoy pagando caro... Ahora entiendo.

—El valor de las cosas que no son materiales –siguió Jorge— (y a veces el de éstas también) es tan subjetivo, que solamente uno mismo puede determinar si un determinado precio es justo o no. Pero hay bienes preciados que todos poseemos y no sé si sabemos evaluar. Uno de ellos es la dignidad. Me parece que la propia dignidad, el autorrespeto como te dije alguna vez, son tan valiosos que pagar con ellos es siempre demasiado caro.”
Jorge Bucay

This day we fight!!”
