Lord Henry Wotton: I apologize for the intelligence of my remarks, Sir Thomas, I'd forgotten that you were a member of Parliament.


Lord Henry Wotton: What is it that has really happened? Someone has killed herself who loved you. I wish I had had such an experience. The women who have admired me, and there have been some, have always insisted on living long after I've ceased to care for them or them for me.
