Open Book: Cecilia (From a while ago)

Open Book: Painting a smile with words. Cecilia is one of my favorite books and when i read it a while ago i loved this quote. I thought it was so true and well stated. Basically it is what the book is about, the pride and prejudice of the rich and poor.

Title: Cecilia
Author: Fanny Burney
Page: 777

"I often think that the rich would be as much happier for marrying the poor, as the poor for marrying the rich, for then they would take somebody that would try to deserve their kindness, and now they only take those that know they have a right to it."
