    The rich were dull and they drank too much or they played too much backgammon. They were dull and they were repetitious. He remembered poor Julian and his romantic awe of them and how he had started a story once that began, The very rich are different from you and me.” And how someone had said to Julian, “Yes, they have more money.”
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)

    And who dies fighting has increase.
