Wednesdays with Words: Such Twisted Natures

I finished the currently published St. Cyr books and began a new to me Georgette Heyer book - The Reluctant Widow - that is rather more delving into human nature than I generally associate with her books.  A few quotes:

"There are some men, ma'am, who have such twisted natures that they cannot see virtue in another without hating it."

and

"It was impossible for her to listen to him unmoved. It was rarely that she had encountered a fellow-creature who understood any part of the ills of her situation [as a governess]."
and
"...but do not let us speak ill of the dead! Death makes the worst of men instantly respectable, you know."

What are you reading?
