A well regulated commerce is not, like law, physic, or divinity, to be overstocked with hands; but, on the contrary, flourishes by multitudes, and gives employment to all its professors.
      - Joseph Addison

Nature seems to have taken a particular care to disseminate her blessings among the different regions of the world, with an eye to their mutual intercourse and traffic among mankind, that the nations of the several parts of the globe might have a kind of dependence upon one another and be united together by their common interest.
      - Joseph Addison

The care of our national commerce redounds more to the riches and prosperity of the public than any other act of government.
      - Joseph Addison

There are no more useful members in a commonwealth than merchants. They knit mankind together in a mutual intercourse of good offices, distribute the gifts of Nature, find work for the poor, and wealth to the rich, and magnificence to the great.
      - Joseph Addison

Commerce defies every wind, outrides every tempest, and invades every zone.
      - George Bancroft

Next to the pastoral came the agricultural life. When you add to that the manufacturing phase of development, society begins to fill out, and needs but wings to fly, and commerce is its wings.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

It may almost be held that the hope of commercial gain has done nearly as much for the cause of truth as even the love of truth.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

God is making commerce His missionary.
      - Joseph Cook

The first inventions of commerce are, like those of all other arts, cunning and short-sighted.
      - John Philpot Curran

More pernicious nonsense was never devised by man than treaties of commerce.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

Chiefly the sea-shore has been the point of departure to knowledge, as to commerce. The most advanced nations are always those who navigate the most.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The usual trade and commerce is cheating all around by consent.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

Commerce links all mankind in one common brotherhood of mutual dependence and interests.
      - James Abram Garfield

Commerce is the equalizer of the wealth of nations.
      - Rt. Hon. William Ewart Gladstone

Commerce unites; religion divides.
      - Alice Tisdale Hobart (Alice Nourse Hobart)

Commerce can never be at a stop while one man wants what another can supply; and credit will never be denied, while it is likely to be repaid with profit.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Commerce however we may please ourselves with the contrary opinion, is one of the daughters of fortune, inconstant and deceitful as her mother. She chooses her residence where she is least expected, and shifts her abode when her continuance is, in appearance, most firmly settled.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Commerce is no other than the traffic of two individuals, multiplied on a scale of number; and, by the same rule that Nature intended the intercourse of two, she intended that of all!
      - Thomas Paine

Whatever has a tendency to promote the civil intercourse of nations by an exchange of benefits is a subject as worthy of philosophy as of politics.
      - Thomas Paine

Commerce has made all winds her mistress.
      - John Sterling

Everything is worth what its purchaser will pay for it.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

A statesman may do much for commerce, most by leaving it alone. A river ever flows so smoothly, as when it follows its own course, without either aid or check. Let it make its own bed, it will do so better than you can.
      - Unknown

As Egypt does not on the clouds rely
  But to the Nile owes more than to the sky;
    So what our earth and what our heaven denies
      Our ever constant friend, the sea supplies.
        The taste of hot Arabia's spice we know,
          Free from the scorching sun that makes it grow;
            Without the worm in Persia's silks we shine;
              And without planting, drink of every vine,
                To dig for wealth we weary not our limbs.
                  Gold, though the heaviest metal hither swims,
                    Ours is the harvest where the Indians mow.
                      We plough the deep, and reap what other sow.
      - Edmund Waller
