Money Wisdom #323

"The origin and essence of our wealth are given in the radiation of the sun, which dispenses energy - wealth - without return. The sun gives without receiving. Men were conscious of this long before astrophysics measured that ceaseless prodigality; they saw it ripen the harvests and they associated its splendor with the act of someone who gives without receiving."

Georges Bataille The Accursed Share (1988 [1967]) p.29
