Vulgarity!

While perusing my copy of The Cynic’s Dictionary I came across a few definitions for “vulgarity” that I deemed worthy of sharing.

“Simply the conduct of other people.”  (Oscar Wilde)

“The garlic in the salad of taste.”  (Cyril Connolly)

“The rich man’s modest contribution to democracy.”  (Samuel Johnson)

“Vulgarity is, in reality, nothing but a modern, chic, pert descendant of the goddess Dullness.”  (Dame Edith Sitwell)
