Hi
Here are some words from the novel Lady Chatterley's Lover(para.13) by Lawrence (the University of Adelaide, here):
" ‘Money!’ he said. ‘Money is a sort of instinct. It’s a sort of property of nature in a man to make money. It’s nothing you do. It’s no trick you play. It’s a sort of permanent accident of your own nature; once you start, you make money, and you go on; up to a point, I suppose.’ "

The "it" in red is likely to refer to "money", and is likely to refer to "making money" as well. What on earth does "it" refer to please?
