Thomas Paine

A quote from Thomas Paine

No reflection ought to be made on any man on account of birth, provided that his manners rise decently with his circumstances, and that he affects not to forget the level he came from; when he does, he ought to be led back and shown the mortifying picture of originality.

— From Common Sense [1776]
