Posted by admin on Friday, March 25, 2022

Charles Dickens Money Quote saying people turn everything they care about into money or financialize their cares. Charles Dickens said:
 
weighed by their dollars, measures gauged by their dollars; life was auctioneered, appraised, put up, and knocked down for its dollars Quote

“All their cares, hopes, joys, affections, virtues, and associations, seemed to be melted down into dollars. Whatever the chance contributions that fell into the slow cauldron of their talk, they made the gruel thick and slab with dollars. Men were weighed by their dollars, measures gauged by their dollars; life was auctioneered, appraised, put up, and knocked down for its dollars” — Charles Dickens
