“Society comprises two classes…”

“Society comprises two classes: those who have more food than appetite, and those who have more appetite than food.” — Nicolas Chamfort, Maximes et Pensées (ca. 1760-1790)

I came across this quote this morning from The New Inquiry and I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s just always amazing to me when a person from so long ago makes a statement that still be applies to this very day.

So where do you fall?
