Lady Chiltern: "But I am very much interested in politics, Lady Markby. I love to hear Robert talk about them." Lady Markby: "Well, I hope he is not as devoted to Blue Books as Sir John is. I don't think they can be quite improving reading for any one." Mrs. Cheveley (languidly): "I have never read a Blue Book. I prefer books in yellow covers." (O. Wilde, ‘An Ideal Husband’, act II) — Леди Чилтерн: "Но я сама очень интересуюсь политикой, леди Маркби. Я очень люблю, когда Роберт говорит о политике." Леди Маркби: "Неужели? Ну, я все-таки надеюсь, что он хоть не так увлекается Синими книгами. Сэра Джона от них не оторвешь. А это, по-моему, никому не может быть полезно." Миссис Чивли (томно): "Я никогда не читала синих книг. Я предпочитаю книги в желтых обложках."

(O. Wilde, ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’, ch.III) — - К вам я пришел не за деньгами, а за сведениями. Разумеется, не за полезными - за бесполезными. - Ну что ж, от меня ты можешь узнать все, что есть в любой Синей книге Англии, хотя нынче в них пишут много ерунды... - Мистер Дориан Грей в Синих книгах не числится, дядя Джордж, - небрежно заметил лорд Генри.
