Karl Marx...

died on this day 125 years ago. From the volumes he wrote, I think I like this quote best:

History calls those men the greatest who have ennobled themselves by working for the common good; experience acclaims as happiest the man who has made the greatest number of people happy.

The quote was taken from a letter to his father, which was written in 1837, and published sixty years later.
