Lord Illingworth. One should never trust a woman who tells one her real age. A woman who would tell one that, would tell one anything.
Mrs. Allonby. She is a Puritan besides—
Lord Illingworth. Ah, that is inexcusable. I don't mind plain women being Puritans. It is the only excuse they have for being plain. But she is decidedly pretty.” source
