"The tenderest affections of her heart were too much concerned in what she had done, to leave her the power of feeling any apprehensions of poverty; all the evils that attend it then appeared to her so entirely external, that she beheld them with the calm philosophy of a stoic, and not from a very contrary motive; the insensibility of each arose from a ruling passion; the stoic's from pride, her's from love."
— Scott [née Robinson], Sarah (1720-1795)
