Charles Kingsley Quote

The fact is novel, and I am more obliged to any one who gives me that, than if he gave me a bank-note. The money gets spent and done with; but I cannot spend the fact: it remains for life as permanent capital, returning interest and compound interest ad infinitum.


Alton Locke, Taylor and Poet, Chapter XVII (p. 139), Macmillan & Company Ltd. 1911
