  --"It is always distressing when outraged morality does not possess the strength of arm to administer direct chastisement on the sinner."
  --"People talk of beauty lightly,and having no feeling for words,they use that one carelessly,so that it loses its force;and the thing it stands for,sharing its name with a hundred trivial objects,is deprived of dignity.They call beautiful a dress,a dog,a sermon;and when they are face to face with Beauty can not recognize it."
  --"...I longed to pierce his armour of complete indifference.I know also that in the end there was truth in what he said.Unconsciously perhaps,we treasure the power we have over people by their regard for our opinion of them,and we hate those upon whom we have no such influence"
  --"As lovers,the difference between men and women is that women can love all day long,but men only at times."
  --"I have an idea that some men are born out of their due place. Accident has cast them amid certain surroundings,but they have always a nostalgia for a home they know not."
