Famous quotes containing the word becky:
“Material advancement has its share in moral and intellectual progress. Becky Sharps acute remark that it is not difficult to be virtuous on ten thousand a year has its applications to nations; and it is futile to expect a hungry and squalid population to be anything but violent and gross.”
