Being in the privileged minority of a society will do that to many people. Seems Cordelia told that to
Mia Maz. No it was Miles quoting Cordelia, IIRC.  Yes.

Miles replying to a question about how his mother handled it, form Mia Maz.

“You mean, being an egalitarian Betan and all? No problem. She says egalitarians adjust to aristocracies just fine, as long as they get to be the aristocrats.”

Excerpt From: Lois McMaster Bujold. “Miles, Mystery and Mayhem.” iBooks.
