Daily Dose

From Nostromo, by Joseph Conrad


"More dangerous to the weilder, too, this weapon of wealth, double-edged with the cupidity and misery of mankind, steeped in all the vices of self-indulgance as in a concoction of poisonous roots, tainting the very cause for which it is drawn. always ready to turn awkwardly in the hand."

from Part III, The Light-House
