Mankind, My Business

Jacob Marley's ghost

Jacob Marley’s ghost visits Ebenezer Scrooge

” “Business!” cried the Ghost, wringing his hands again.
“Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were, all, my business.
The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water
in the comprehensive ocean of my business!” “
~ Jacob Marley
(Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol, 1843).
