The Man of Feeling

By the time he had reached the Square, and was walking along the pavement which led to the baronet's he had brought his reasoning on the subject to such a point, that the conclusion, by every rule of logic, should have led him to a thorough indifference in his approaches to a fellow-mortal, whether that fellow-mortal was possessed of six or six thousand pounds a year. It is probable, however, that the premises had been improperly formed: for it is certain, that when he approached the great man's door he felt his heart agitated by an unusual palpitation.

Quoted on October 4, 2011

Why, Jack shall make a fortune, dine on venison, and drink claret. --Ay, but Tom--Tom shall dine with his brother, when his pride will let him; at other times, he shall bless God over a half-pint of ale and a Welsh-rabbit; and both shall go to heaven as they may.
