A Year of Quotes 1.4.16


Mr. Wilde is at it again… This one comes from his play, A Woman of No Importance. The play was originally staged at London’s Haymarket Theatre  in the Spring of 1893. Wilde wrote it at the urging of the Haymarket’s actor-manager, Herbert Beerbohm Tree, who wanted to duplicate the success of Lady Windermere’s Fan which premiered a the St. James Theatre the previous season.

One should never trust a woman
who tells one her real age.

A woman who would tell one that,
would tell one anything.

–A Woman of No Importance

Here’s a link to the free e-book of the play courtesy the Guttenberg Project.
