When a young lady of more fashion than means has the good sense to win the affection of an older gentleman, a widower of high estate and easy circumstances, it is generally observed that the match is an intelligent one on both sides.

"It was market day in the open square beneath the Roman Senate and the temples of the gods." Behold the Man by Bodie and Brock Thoene (I like the first line of the second paragraph even better though... "The crippled eight-year-old boy, wooden sword in his belt, bobbed above the crowd as he rode high upon the shoulders of the Ethiopian slave named Jono.") ;-)
