virginia woolf's sarcasm is so delicious:

"the law of england sees to it that we do not inherit great possessions; the law of england denies us, and let us hope will long continue to deny us, the full stigma of nationality. then we can scarcely doubt that our brothers will provide us for many centuries to come, as they have done for many centuries past, with what is so essential for sanity, and so invaluable in preventing the great modern sins of vanity, egotism, and megalomania - that is to say ridicule, censure and contempt."
