He remembered how it had seemed to him to him, a priest sweet to die if he might die clasping unrebuked this woman in his arms. The blood throbbed in his temples as he recalled the wild thoughts that had swirled in a mad throng through his brain in those moments which had seemed like hours; the blood throbbed, too, in his wounded arm, so that a groan forced itself through his parched lips. He was constantly throwing himself to and fro as if to escape from some teasing thought, always to be by the sharp pang in his wound brought to a sense of his condition. The whole night passed in an agony of mind and body.

An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations
This book treats economics like science, almost like physics where the facts are proved by experiment. Although it is a few hundred years old the theory seems to be so very pertinent to us today. I really enjoyed it, despite the slightly old fashioned language.
It has made me look at so many things afresh, and removed my fear of economics. The laws of economics are no more to be feared than gravity.
Crown Jewel of Economy
No wonder Great Britain became a super power of economy and manufacture. This book paved the way for it. One of the finest classics I have read.
