Adam Smith quote - 4 of 10

"...  the certainty of being able to exchange all that surplus part of the produce of his own labour, which is over and above his own consumption, for such parts of the produce of other men's labour as he may have occasion for, encourages every man to apply himself to a particular occupation, and to cultivate and bring to perfection whatever talent of genius he may possess for that particular species of business."

- Quote from The Invisible Hand by Adam Smith (Penguin Great Ideas series)
