„Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo.“

—  H. G. Wells, libro The Wife of Sir Isaac Harman

The Wife of Sir Isaac Harman (1914), p. 299

It is the peculiar snare of the perplexed orthodox, and soon Mr. Brumley was in a state of nearly unendurable moral indignation with Sir Isaac for a hundred exaggerations of what he was and of what conceivably he might have done to his silent yet manifestly unsuitably married wife.
