The nature vs nurture, or free will vs determinism debate

Father Brown Episode 4

Church Secretary Bridget McCarthy : A month in prison has once again failed to reform that woman.

Father Brown: Well, Annie’s life has not been blessed with opportunity.

It’s hardly an excuse for… bad manners.

Lady Felicia Montague: Of course not, but it does explain her prostitution.

How about, properly mannered people’s lives improperly presume true virtue.

More programme notes in the comments as I like each point to have its own box and for the home page not to be cluttered with them.
