Frances Hodgson Burnett
“To begin, I am a Frenchman, a teacher of languages, and a poor man,–necessarily a poor man, as the great world would say, or I should not be a teacher of languages, and my wife a copyist of great pictures, selling her copies at small prices. In our own eyes, it is true, we are not so poor–my Clélie and I. Looking back upon our past we congratulate ourselves upon our prosperous condition.
There was a time when we were poorer than we are now, and were not together, and were, moreover, in London instead of in Paris.”
