LORD DARLINGTON

What is a cynic?

LORD DARLINGTON

A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.

CECIL GRAHAM

And a sentimentalist, my dear Darlington, is a man who sees an absurd value in everything, and doesn’t know the market price of any single thing.

-from Act III of Lady Windemere’s Fan by Oscar Wilde
