This quotation came from one of the volumes in the Glasgow Edition of the Works of Adam Smith published by Oxford University Press. Unfortunately, we no longer have the electronic rights to this edition and so cannot link to the relevant passage in the book.
We have replaced the links to passages in The Wealth of Nations, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, and some passages from the Lectures on Jurisprudence to alternate editions of these works.
For further information see the main page for Adam Smith.
