Quotations and aphorisms by :

Every society in every period does or doesn’t talk about certain topics. We don’t discuss money much; it’s almost certain that most people don’t know how much their colleagues earn. The Victorians, in contrast, were very happy to discuss money. They weren’t, however, happy to discuss sex.
~Judith Flanders


Victorian racehorse owners frequently named their horses after murderers. That was so astonishing. Can you imagine the equivalent today, with a horse named, say, Boston Strangler, running in the Kentucky Derby? This was a new discovery. The Victorians didn’t think it was odd, so no one ever mentioned it particularly.
~Judith Flanders
