"MABEL CHILTERN is a perfect example of the English type of prettiness, the apple-blossom type. She has all the fragrance and freedom of a flower. There is ripple after ripple of sunlight in her hair, and the little mouth, with its parted lips, is expectant, like the mouth of a child. She has the fascinating tyranny of youth, and the astonishing courage of innocence. To sane people she is not reminiscent of any work of art. But she is really like a Tanagra statuette, and would be rather annoyed if she were told so." --Oscar Wilde. An Ideal Husband.
I recently made a breakthrough with my new iPhone. See, you can't walk down the street reading a book. It's socially unacceptable. Ridiculous. Crazy. But it's fine to walk down the street staring at your iPhone. A few ebook downloads later, and I've got a library on the go. A library filled with things like Oscar Wilde plays.
