Adam Smith

“It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own self-interest. We address ourselves not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities, but of their advantages”


Adam Smith, An Inquiry into the Nature & Causes of the Wealth of Nations, Vol 1
