… is from page 112 of University of Glasgow Senior Lecturer Craig Smith’s superb 2020 book, Adam Smith (footnote deleted):

What [Adam] Smith also wants to point out is that the differences between humans, unlike the differences between breeds of dogs, can be brought into a ‘common stock’ through co-operation. Philosophers and street porters can be useful to each other in a way that greyhounds and mastiffs cannot be. This is only possible through trade.

DBx: Trade is the great process for uniting humanity.
