1901My Brilliant Career, ch.5.
Grannie remarked that I might have the spirit of an Australian but I had by no means the manners of a lady.Of Bin Bin
I am proud that I am an Australian, a daughter of the Southern Cross, a child of the mighty bush. I am thankful I am a peasant, a part of the bone and muscle of my nation, and earn my bread by the sweat of my brow, as man was meant to do. I rejoice I was not born a parasite, one of the blood-suckers who loll on velvet and satin, crushed from the proceeds of human sweat and blood and souls.Of Bin Bin
