TRADE
[ Also see Bargain Business Commerce Occupations Specialty ]

Some men make gain a fountain, whence proceeds
  A stream of liberal and heroic deeds;
    The swell of pity, not to be confined
      Within the scanty limits of the mind.
      - William Cowper

There is nothing so useful to man in general, nor so beneficial to particular societies and individuals, as trade. This is that alma mater, at whose plentiful breast all mankind are nourished.
      - Henry Fielding

He that hath a trade hath an estate; and he that hath a calling hath a place of profit and honor. A ploughman on his legs is higher than a gentleman on his knees.
      - Benjamin Franklin

No nation was ever ruined by trade.
      - Benjamin Franklin

There is a Spanish proverb, that a lapidary who would grow rich must buy of those who go to be executed, as not caring how cheap they sell; and sell to those who go to be married, as not caring how dear they buy.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

But times are alter'd; trade's unfeeling train
  Usurp the land, and dispossess the swain;
    Along the lawn, where scatter'd hamlets rose,
      Unwieldy wealth and cumbrous pomp repose.
      - Oliver Goldsmith
