Lucretius quote

That is a property which cannot be
Disjoined from a thing and separate
Without the said thing’s death. Fluidity
Is thus a property of water ; weight
Is of a stone. Whilst riches. poverty,
Slavery, freedom, concord, war, and hate,
Which change, and not inhere in things of sense,
We name not properties, but accidents.


(Socialist Standard, April 1924)
