The Wine of Youth

Andalusia, Spain 1933

EDWARD CARSON, prosecutor at Wilde’s trial: What enjoyment was it to you to entertain grooms and coachmen?

OSCAR WILDE: The pleasure to me was being with those who are young, bright, happy, careless, and free. I do not like the sensible and I do not like the old.

Oscar Wilde
From the transcript of his first trial, 1895
