As long as civilization is...
Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

As long as civilization is
Ralph Waldo Emerson

As long as civilization is essentially one of property, of fences, of exclusiveness, it will be mocked by delusions. Our riches will leave us sick; there will be bitterness in our laughter, and our wine will burn our mouth. Only that good profits which we can taste with all doors open, and which serves all men.
