German term or phrase:Mehr als das Blei in der Flinte das im Setzkasten
I am translating a market research survey that was done for a German library and in the foreword the author refers to a saying from the philosopher Georg Christoph Lichtenberg: "Mehr als das Gold hat das Blei die Welt veraendert. Und mehr als das Blei in der Flinte das im Setzkasten.". Has anyone any ideas?????
