Karl Marx pp 226-289 | Cite as

Nothing, it has been said, endures like the temporary. When Marx came to England certainly he had no idea that he would make it his permanent home. For years he shared the view of most of his fellowrefugees that a new round of revolutions would soon break out on the Continent. Like the early Christians awaiting the Second Coming, they regarded their present life as of little importance compared to the great event that was to come. This partly accounts for the ad hoc nature of much of Marx’s life during what was in fact to be a long and sleepless night of exile.
