Today’s Quotes come from one of my favourite plays, The Importance of Being Earnest.

…Relations are simply a tedious pack of people, who haven’t got the remotest knowledge of how to live, nor the smallest instinct about when to die.

* … Her mother is perfectly unbearable. Never met such a Gorgon . . . I don’t really know what a Gorgon is like, but I am quite sure that Lady Bracknell is one. In any case, she is a monster, without being a myth, which is rather unfair . . 

JACK: How can you sit there, calmly eating muffins when we are in this horrible trouble, I can’t make out. You seem to me to be perfectly heartless.

ALGERNON: Well, I can’t eat muffins in an agitated manner. The butter would probably get on my cuffs.

~ Oscar Wilde from The Importance of Being Earnest

    1. Oh I love The Importance of Being Earnest! It’s my favourite by Oscar Wilde.

      The muffin quote is so funny! Actually the whole play is full of quips like that. Hope you read it someday!
