Luxury may refer to:
Rings put upon his fingers,
A most delicious banquet by his bed,
And brave attendants near him when he wakes,
Would not the beggar then forget himself?
William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew (c. 1593-94), Induction, scene 1, line 38.
There is a luxury in self-reproach. When we blame ouselves we feel that no one else has the right to blame us.
Oscar Wilde The Picture of Dorian Gray (1891), Chapter 8.
To treat a poor wretch with a bottle of Burgundy, and fill his snuff-box, is like giving a pair of laced ruffles to a man that has never a shirt on his back.
Tom Brown, Laconics.
