Herman Melville

"Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well- warmed, and well-fed."

---Herman Melville (1819-1891) writing in Poor Man's Pudding and Rich Man's Crumbs, published in Harper's New Monthly Magazine, June 1854
