Just remember this, Mr. Potter, that this rabble you're talking about...
they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this
community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and
die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn't
think so. People were human beings to him. But to you, a warped,
frustrated old man, they're cattle. Well, in my book he died a much
richer man than you'll ever be.
