Evgeny Onegin

He cursed Theocritus and Homer,
In Adam Smith was his diploma;
our deep economist had got
the gift of recognizing what
a nation’s wealth is, what augments it,
and how a country lives, and why
it needs no gold if a supply
of simple product supplements it.
His father failed to understand
and took a morthage on his land.

Þetta er úr Evgeny Onegin eftir Pushkin, sem ég er að lesa núna. Þvílík ótrúleg snilld.
