„Serenity is impossible to a poor man in a cold country“

—  George Orwell English author and journalist 1903 - 1950
Context: To the well-fed it seems cowardly to complain of tight boots, because the well-fed live in a different world-a world where, if your boots are tight, you can change them; their minds are not warped by petty discomfort. But below a certain income the petty crowds the large out of existence; one's preoccupation is not with art or religion, but with bad food, hard beds, drudgery and the sack. Serenity is impossible to a poor man in a cold country and even his active thoughts will go in more or less sterile complaint. Review of Hunger and Love by Lionel Britton, in The Adelphi (April 1931)
