Anyone have any idea who said something about "the world is mania, divorces and spent change"?

I looked in Lexis-Nexis, Dow Jones, JStor, ProQuest, MUSE, Making of America, four different Internet search engines, and a few other places, and I can't find it.

It sounds like an Oscar Wilde quote, but that didn't seem to pan out.
