    Thank you.

    Quote referenced in the book:

    The liberal reward of labour, therefore, as it is the necessary effect, so it is the natural symptom of increasing national wealth. The scanty maintenance of the labouring poor, on the other hand, is the natural symptom that things are at a stand, and their starving condition that they are going fast backwards.
    Adam Smith ~ An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations ~ Book 1, Chapter 8
    Of the Wages of Labour

    Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.
