I had rather enjoy my own mind than the fortune of another man. What is the poor pride arising from a magnificient house, a numerous equipage, a splendid table, and from all the other advantages or appearances of fortune compared to the warm, solid content, the swelling satisfaction, the thrilling transports, and the exulting triumphs which a good mind enjoys in the contemplation of a generous, virtuous, noble, benevelent action?

— Henry Fielding (1707-1754) British Playwright and Novelist
