Mrs. Eversleigh: What I can’t understand is why, if you must be kind to people—which seems to me quite unnecessary—you shouldn’t choose agreeable people instead of disagreeable ones.

Lady Denison: Mr. Hylton, will you kindly explain to Mrs. Eversleigh why I have to be kind to disagreeable people? I never can remember. Hylton: You see, Mrs. Eversleigh, agreeable people don’t need friends to be kind to them. They have plenty already. Disagreeable people have not. Mrs. Eversleigh: If people are disagreeable they don’t deserve kindness. Hylton: It’s not what people deserve, but what they want that matters, don’t you think? In fact, often the less people deserve the more we ought to help them. They need it more. Mrs. Eversleigh: I’m afraid that’s hardly a view you can expect me to take seriously. It’s very modern and original, but it’s not serious. Hylton: I should hardly have called it modern. Usen’t we to be taught that it was our duty to love our enemies? Mrs. Eversleigh: Yes. But only on Sundays. And no one ever dreamed of doing it. So of course, that didn’t matter. You want Lady Denison to do it.
