“Lord Illingworth. Far too many.
Gerald. But do you think women shouldn't be good?
Lord Illingworth. One should never tell them so, they'd all become good at once. Women are a fascinatingly wilful sex. Every woman is a rebel, and usually in wild revolt against herself.
Gerald. You have never been married, Lord Illingworth, have you?
Lord Illingworth. Men marry because they are tired; women because they are curious. Both are disappointed.
Gerald. But don't you think one can be happy when one is married?”
