I have noticed that the Christianity of a certain class of respectable people begins when they open their prayer-books at eleven o'clock on Sunday morning, and ends when they shut them up again at one o'clock on Sunday afternoon. Nothing so astonishes and insults Christians of this sort as reminding them of their Christianity on a week-day. ~ Armadale by Wilkie Collins The best men are not consistent in good--why should the worst men be consistent in evil? ~ The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins Women can resist a man's love, a man's fame, a man's personal appearance, and a man's money, but they cannot resist a man's tongue when he knows how to talk to them. ~ The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins "I am a citizen of the world, and I have met, in my time, with so many different sorts of virtue, that I am puzzled, in my old age, to say which is the right sort and which is the wrong." ~ The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins The woman who first gives life, light, and form to our shadowy conceptions of beauty, fills a void in our spiritual nature that has remained unknown to us till she appeared. ~ The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins Some of us rush through life, and some of us saunter through life. Mrs. Vesey SAT through life. ~ The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins But the Law is still, in certain inevitable cases, the pre-engaged servant of the long purse. ~ The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins Sir John had his share–perhaps rather a large share–of the more harmless and amiable of the weaknesses incidental to humanity.

And all the rest of you–which is a great comfort–are, in this respect, much the same as I am. ~ The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
