"Gertrude, truth is a very complex thing, and politics is a very complex business. There are wheels within wheels. One may be under certain obligations to people that one must pay. Sooner or later in political life one has to compromise. Every one does."

--Oscar Wilde, An Ideal Husband. Wilde was released from Reading Gaol, where he had been imprisoned for "gross indecency" (read "homosexuality"), on this date in 1897.
