I've decided in my retirement to read some classic novels

I've started with Crime & Punishment by  Dostoyevsky..

Crime and Punishment focuses on the mental anguish and moral dilemmas of Rodion Raskolnikov, an impoverished ex-student in Saint Petersburg who formulates and executes a plan to kill an unscrupulous pawnbroker for her cash.

Dmitry would be proud of me ha2ha

I downloaded a collection Kelley
The 100 best novels, a BBC collection
They're all in the public domain and all classics
I already read The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist

Will you look at him, sitting there with his hooter scraping away at that book!  Have you no natural resources of your own?  Have they even robbed you of that?  You should be out parading.  That's it, parading the streets ... trailing your coat ... bowling along ... living!  When was the last time you gave a girl a pink-edged daisy?  When did you last embarrass a sheila with your cool appraising stare?  Do you think I haven't noticed ... do you think I wasn't aware of the drift?  Oh ... you poor unfortunate scruff, they've driven you into books by their cruel, unnatural treatment, exploiting your good nature.  And what's it all come to in the end?  A book!

  When was the last time you gave a girl a pink-edged daisy? 

Always wondered if this was a euphemism of some sort.
