“those things are very sad, no doubt, but I believe there are admirable homes where people of that kind are looked after and reformed, and I think on the whole that the secret of life is to take things very, very easily.
Mrs. Allonby. The secret of life is never to have an emotion that is unbecoming.
Lady Stutfield. The secret of life is to appreciate the pleasure of being terribly, terribly deceived.
Kelvil. The secret of life is to resist temptation, Lady Stutfield.
Lord Illingworth. There is no secret of life. Life's aim, if it has one, is simply to be always looking for temptations. There are not nearly enough.”
