Money Wisdom #15

"Up in our country we are human !" said the hunter. "And since we are human we help each other. We don't like to hear anybody say thanks for that. What I get today you may get tomorrow. Up here we say that by gifts one makes slaves and by whips one makes dogs."

Freuchen  (1961) p154 quoted in
David Graeber  Debt  The First 5000 Years (2011) p79
