Liberty and Wealth

This is the corner into which I beheld a capitalist driven. I say capitalist. But the man was only a day-laborer, and had found it difficult to keep a small family in ordinary comfort. “Nobody is to blame but myself that I am not rich,” he said, “I have neglected to pursue the proper course. But that course was open to me, as it is to everybody in this country. The way is before every man’s eyes; it needs but the will and—the brains!” So, I said, he was a capitalist. If he lay in the gutter and drank swill, he would still be a capitalist. For “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh,” even with more oracular power than out of the abundance of gold
