I having some trouble finding the source of a quote attributed to Marx.
It's a bit difficult because I've translated it from the Vietnamese,
which was probably based on the Russian (ie a Moscow publication) rather
than from the German language.
I was wondering whether you are familiar with this quote:
"... only animals can turn away from the agony of people and busy
themselves preening their fur and feathers."
Another variation would be:
"... only animals can turn from the suffering of men and busy themselves
preening their fur and feathers."
I searched the Marx/Engels Internet Archive, and used "beast" instead of
"animal", and "pain" instead of "agony", but I had no luck at all.
Your suggestions would be much appreciayed!
