"
Man naturally desires, not only to be loved, but to be lovely..." Sally Madden illustrates this beloved Smith quotation with humor and fun. Watch out for everyone - worms too!
Artist Sally Madden is back with a new Adam Smith Comic  from Part 3, Chapter 2 of Adam Smith's The Theory of Moral Sentiments

Man naturally desires, not only to be loved, but to be lovely; or to be that thing which is the natural and proper object of love. He naturally dreads, not only to be hated, but to be hateful; or to be that thing which is the natural and proper object of hatred. He desires, not only praise, but praiseworthiness; or to be that thing which, though it should be praised by nobody, is, however, the natural and proper object of praise. He dreads, not only blame, but blame-worthiness; or to be that thing which, though it should be blamed by nobody, is, however, the natural and proper object of blame. (TMS III.ii.1)
