My Business


In Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol when Scrooge tells the ghost of his partner Marley "... you were always a good man of business..." the response is:

"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!"
