In the Lives by Plutarch, he writes in the life Demosthenes that
to a man’s being happy, it is in the first place requisite he should be born in some ‘famous city’.
He continues to say
but for him who must attain to true happiness, it is of no other disadvantage to be of a mean, obscure country, than to be born of a small or plain looking woman.
