Famous quotes containing the word means:
“[T]here is no situation so deplorable ... as that of a gentlewoman in real poverty.... Birth, family, and education become misfortunes when we cannot attain some means of supporting ourselves in the station they throw us into.

—Sarah Fielding (17101768)

—David Hume (17111776)
