"Every kind of wealth may be considered as fictitious except land; everything exists for it. As a bank-note is a receipt for metallic money in the State Bank, so industry and commerce and whatever else you please is land turned into another form."
— HENRYK SIENKIEWICZ, Children of the Soil, Chap. III. (Words spoken by Yamish.)
"He who has earth has bread."
— FELIX GRAS, Reds of the Midi, Chap. I. (Words spoken by Pascal.)
