Does anybody remember this quote from a particular book? If you remember, what book was it from?

I know it's a long-shot, so do you know of any book related communities that could help me out?

"We pay attention to a limited number of mostly young, good-looking, and wealthy persons who fill the pages of one of our most aptly named magazines: People. If they are people, who are the rest of us? What does it signify to be obscure in a world preoccupied with fame, however earned or unearned? As long as we measure others and ourselves by what we have and how we look, life is inevitablly a discouraging experience, characterized by greed, envy, and the desire to be someone else."
