"to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." Yes, this one really resonates with me. It's not at all uncommon to hear this attitude in current daily life.

It's particularly weird looking at this written in Victorian England where all the classes seem so incredibly separated and aware of it - and then look at the US where we're very big on saying there are no classes and we're all equal. Except we're in a particularly bad era for people as a whole seeing each other as fellow-passengers. But I suppose that's not really new for us, sadly.
