A Pound Of Flesh

The price of something we want is often so dear we end up paying for it our entire lives.

Think before you acquire one of these items.  Is the cost worth the expense?
   
Deeds are costly too.  I know someone who will pay an exhorbitant price for something he really should not have done.

Every time I see "a pound of flesh," I think of The Merchant of Venice. I know the terminology goes back to the Old Testament, but I can't help but conjure Shylock when I read it.

Actually, to my knowledge, the term did originate with Shakespeare.

Maybe I shouldn't have used the word "terminology."

"Concept" might have been a better word in this place.
