Countryside and Nature - The Insults of Oscar Wilde

A man who can dominate a London dinner-table can dominate the world.
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
And then look at the depressing, monotonous appearance of any modern city, the sombre dress of men and women, the meaningless and barren architecture, the colourless and dreadful surroundings.
LECTURE TO ART STUDENTS
Anybody can be good in the country. There are no temptations there. That is the reason why people who live out of town are so absolutely uncivilised.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
Art is very difficult in this unlovely town of ours, where, as you go to work in the mornings, or return from it at eventide, you have to pass through street after street of the most foolish and stupid architecture that the world has ever seen; architecture... reducing three-fourths of the London houses to being, merely, like square boxes of the vilest proportions, as gaunt as they are grimy, and as poor as they are pretentious.
LECTURE TO ART STUDENTS
As for the infinite variety of Nature, that is a pure myth. It is not to be found in Nature herself. It resides in the imagination, or fancy, or cultivated blindness of the man who looks at her.
THE DECAY OF LYING
But somehow, I feel sure that if I lived in the country for six months, I should become so unsophisticated that no one would take the slightest notice of me.
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
Cecily: Ah! This is what the newspapers call agricultural depression, is it not? I believe the aristocracy are suffering very much from it just at present.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
Egotism itself, which is so necessary to a proper sense of dignity, is entirely the result of indoor life. Out of doors one becomes abstract and impersonal.
THE DECAY OF LYING
Grass is hard and lumpy and damp, and full of dreadful black insects. Why, even Morris' poorest workman could make you a more comfortable seat than the whole of Nature can.
THE DECAY OF LYING
Gwendolen: I had no idea there were any flowers in the country.
Cecily: Oh, flowers are as common here, Miss Fairfax, as people are in London.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
Gwendolen: Personally I cannot understand how anybody manages to exist in the country, if anybody who is anybody does. The country always bores me to death.
If Nature had been comfortable, mankind would never have invented architecture, and I prefer houses to the open air.
THE DECAY OF LYING
It is pure unadulterated country life. They get up early, because they have so much to do, and go to bed early because they have so little to think about.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
Land has ceased to be either a profit or a pleasure. It gives one position, and prevents one from keeping it up.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
Like most artificial people he had a love of nature.
PEN, PENCIL AND POISON
London is too full of fogs and... serious people... Whether the fogs produce the serious people or whether the serious people produce the fogs, I don't know...
LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN
Most women in London, nowadays, seem to furnish their rooms with nothing but orchids, foreigners, and French novels.
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
Nature has good intentions, of course, but, as Aristotle once said, she cannot carry them out.
THE DECAY OF LYING
One of those utterly tedious amusements one only finds at an English country house on an English country Sunday.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
What Art really reveals to us is Nature's lack of design, her curious crudities, her extraordinary monotony, her absolutely unfinished condition.
THE DECAY OF LYING
When one is in town one amuses oneself. When one is in the country one amuses other people.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
You have a town house, I hope? A girl with a simple, unspoiled nature, like Gwendolen, could hardly be expected to reside in the country.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
You have nothing to look at but chimney-pot hats, men with sandwich boards, vermilion letterboxes, and do that at the risk of being run over by an emerald-green omnibus.
