Lord Darlington: What cynics you fellows are!
Cecil Graham: 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.
Lord Darlington: You always amuse me, Cecil. You talk as if you were a man of experience.
Cecil Graham: I am.
Lord Darlington: You are far too young!
Cecil Graham: That is a great error. Experience is a question of instinct about life. I have got it. Tuppy hasn’t. Experience is the name Tuppy gives to his mistakes. That is all.
Dumby: Experience is the name every one gives to their mistakes.
Cecil Graham: One shouldn’t commit any.
Dumby: Life would be very dull without them.
