A Curious Quote on Hospitality

This morning, I came across a curious quote on hospitality from George MacDonald:

“I am proud of a race whose social relations are the last upon which they will retrench, whose latest yielded pleasure is their hospitality. It is a common feeling that only the well-to-do have a right to be hospitable. The ideal flower of hospitality is almost unknown to the rich; it can hardly be grown save in the gardens of the poor; it is one of their beatitudes.”

I may be chewing on that for a while.
