(Don't) let's be sensible

"The intelligent man finds almost everything ridiculous,
the sensible man hardly anything."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Cecily: Miss Prism says that all good looks are a snare.

Algernon: They are a snare that every sensible man would like to be caught in.

Cecily: Oh, I don’t think I would care to catch a sensible man. I shouldn’t know what to talk to him about.

The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde
