Please, dear father, excuse my illegible handwriting and bad style; it is almost 4 o’clock, the candle has burnt itself out, and my eyes are dim; a real unrest has taken possession of me, I shall not be able to calm the turbulent spectres until I am with you who are dear to me.
Please give greetings from me to my sweet, wonderful Jenny. I have read her letter twelve times already, and always discover new delights in it. It is in every respect, including that of style, the most beautiful letter I can imagine being written by a woman.” —young Karl Marx, letter to his father (via digitalpidgin)
This is actually one of my favorite Karl Marx quotes, his tremendous work ethic was evident at an early age.
