Excerpt from book: be useful, and the product of human labour, without being a commodity. Whoever directly satisfies his wants with the produce of his own labour, creates, indeed, use-values, but not commodities. In order to produce the latter, he must not only produce use-values, but use-values for others, social use-values. Lastly, nothing can have value, without being an object of utility. If the thing is useless, so is the labour contained in it; the labour does not count as labour, and therefore creates no value. SECTION 2. THE TWOFOLD CHARACTEB OF THE LABOTTE EMBODIED IN COMMODITIES. At first sight a commodity presented itself to us as a complex of two things?use-value and exchange-value. Later on, we saw also that labour, too, possesses the same two-fold nature; for, so far as it finds expression in value, it does not possess the same characteristics that belong to it as a creator of use-values.

The coat is a use-value that satisfies a particular want. Its existence is the result of a special sort of productive activity, the nature of which is determined by its aim, mode of operation, subject, means, and result The labour, whose utility is thus represented by the value in use of its product, or which manifests itself by making its product a use-value, we call iseful labour. In this connexion we consider only its useful effect. As the coat and the linen are two qualitatively different use v...
