T10T: I’m an Unspeakable of the Oscar Wilde Sort

Maurice: “I’ve had to do with the poor too,” said Maurice, taking a piece of cake. “But I can’t worry over them. One must give them a leg up for the country’s sake generally, that’s all. They haven’t our feelings. They don’t suffer as we should in their place.” p 167

My return to blogging also means my return to T10T as hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl!!! This week theme is quotes that fit x theme- and as I just read Maurice most of the quotes will be from there. But first, let’s talk about our first quote- that the poor feel differently from the rich. That we’re more hardened and can handle the slings and arrows of poverty.

Well, that’s not quite true. Poverty is traumatic. An article from Psychiatric Times stresses that poverty is linked to depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, psychological distress, and suicide. While it may make sense that impoverished people have learnt to adapt to our situations, it takes a significant toll.

Ahh, there’s no easy way to transition from that, so let’s move on to the next quote.

“I’m an unspeakable of the Oscar Wilde sort.” ~ Maurice

“Did he, the devil?”

“The indifference of the universe to man!”

“After all, is not a real Hell better than a manufactured Heaven?”

Ahhh, halfway there and I used all the quotes I wrote down. This is why you should blog before you chuck the book in the return bin.

I think you know what I’m about to do.

Dude…pie
I’m definitely gay.
Coach Sue, peeps
If you weren’t such a CLOTPOLE
I have no idea what I’m doing with my life!
