Richard Jefferies Quote – “The friction of a thousand interests…”

The friction of a thousand interests evolves a condition of electricity in which men are moved to and fro without considering their steps. Yet the agitated pool of life is stonily indifferent, the thought is absent or preoccupied, for it is evident that the mass are unconscious of the scene in which they act.

Richard Jefferies (1848 – 1887)
