„Für wie selbstsüchtig man den Menschen auch halten mag, es gibt nachweislich einige Grundlagen seines Wesens, die dazu führen, dass er sich für das Schicksal anderer interessiert, deren Glück ihm notwendig erscheint, obwohl er nichts davon hat außer dem Vergnügen, es zu sehen." - Die Theorie der ethischen Gefühle
"So eigensüchtig wir uns den Menschen auch denken mögen, so müssen wir doch zugeben, daß eine gewisse natürliche Stimmung seines Herzens ihn nöthige, an dem Schicksal seiner Brüder Theil zu nehmen, und ihr Glück als ein unumgängliches Erforderniß zu seinem eigenen Glück zu betrachten, sollt' er auch nichts anders davon haben, als das Vergnügen, es mit anzusehn.“

„The value which the workmen add“

—  Adam Smith
Context: The value which the workmen add to the materials, therefore, resolves itself in this case into two parts, of which the one pays their wages, the other the profits of the employer upon the whole stock of materials and wages which he advanced. Chapter VI, p. 58.

„They say nothing concerning the bad effects of high profits. They are silent with regard to the pernicious effects of their own gains. They complain only of those of other people.“

—  Adam Smith
Context: Our merchants and master-manufacturers complain much of the bad effects of high wages in raising the price, and thereby lessening the sale of their goods both at home and abroad. They say nothing concerning the bad effects of high profits. They are silent with regard to the pernicious effects of their own gains. They complain only of those of other people. Chapter IX, p. 117.

„Whenever the legislature attempts to regulate the differences between masters and their“

—  Adam Smith
Context: Whenever the legislature attempts to regulate the differences between masters and their workmen, its counsellors are always the masters. When the regulation, therefore, is in favor of the workmen, it is always just and equitable; but it is sometimes otherwise when in favor of the masters. Chapter x, Part II, p. 168.

„But whoever imagines, upon this account, that masters rarely combine, is as“

—  Adam Smith
Context: We rarely hear, it has been said, of the combinations of masters, though frequently of those of the workman. But whoever imagines, upon this account, that masters rarely combine, is as ignorant of the world as of the subject. Chapter VIII, p. 80.

„The proposal of any new law or regulation of commerce which comes from this order, ought always to be listened to with great precaution“

—  Adam Smith
Context: The proposal of any new law or regulation of commerce which comes from this order, ought always to be listened to with great precaution, and ought never to be adopted till after having been long and carefully examined, not only with the most scrupulous, but with the most suspicious attention. It comes from an order of men, whose interest is never exactly the same with that of the public, who have generally an interest to deceive and even to oppress the public, and who accordingly have, upon many occasions, both deceived and oppressed it. Chapter XI, Part III, Conclusion of the Chapter, p. 292.

„Labour was the first price, the original purchase-money that was paid for all things“

—  Adam Smith
Context: Labour was the first price, the original purchase-money that was paid for all things. It was not by gold or by silver, but by labour, that all the wealth of the world was originally purchased; and its value, to those who possess it, and who want to exchange it for some new productions, is precisely equal to the quantity of labour which it can enable them to purchase or command. Chapter V, p. 38.

„It comes from an order of men, whose interest is never exactly the same with that of the public, who have generally an interest to deceive and even to oppress the public“

Context: The proposal of any new law or regulation of commerce which comes from this order, ought always to be listened to with great precaution, and ought never to be adopted till after having been long and carefully examined, not only with the most scrupulous, but with the most suspicious attention. It comes from an order of men, whose interest is never exactly the same with that of the public, who have generally an interest to deceive and even to oppress the public, and who accordingly have, upon many occasions, both deceived and oppressed it. Chapter XI, Part III, Conclusion of the Chapter, p. 292.

„Europeans rendered an event, which ought to have been beneficial to all, ruinous and destructive to“

—  Adam Smith
Context: The commodities of Europe were almost all new to America, and many of those of America were new to Europe. A new set of exchanges, therefore, began.. and which should naturally have proved as advantageous to the new, as it certainly did to the old continent. The savage injustice of the Europeans rendered an event, which ought to have been beneficial to all, ruinous and destructive to several of those unfortunate countries. Chapter I, p. 481.
