I just finished listening to “A Gentleman In Moscow” last week. Then, this week, my buddy mentioned the quote below from “A Gentleman In Moscow“. So I take it as a sign that I’m supposed to copy and paste the quote on the ECPC blog —>

The Confederacy of the Humbled is a close-knit brotherhood whose members travel with no outward markings, but who know each other at a glance. For having fallen suddenly from grace, those in the Confederacy share a certain perspective. Knowing beauty, influence, fame, and privilege to be borrowed rather than bestowed, they are not easily impressed. They are not quick to envy or take offense. They certainly do not scour the papers in search of their own names. They remain committed to living among their peers, but they greet adulation with caution, ambition with sympathy, and condescension with an inward smile.
