Coriolanus, [1.1.77-84]. First Citizen. “Care for us? True, indeed! They ne’er car’d for us yet. Suffer us to famish, and their storehouses cramm’d with grain, make edicts for usury, to support usurers; repeal daily any wholesome act establish’d against the rich, and provide more piercing statutes daily to chain up and restrain the poor. If the wars eat us not up, they will; and there’s all the love they bear us.”
