Quotes / Impoverished Patrician

...And that gent today
You gave a cent today
Once had several chateaux!

When folks who still can ride in jitneys
Find out Vanderbilts and Whitney's
Lack baby clothes...
Anything goes!

"No man is blest in every single thing.
"One is of noble birth, but lacking means."
—A surviving fragment of Sthenoboea, quoted in The Frogs
