Why I simply adore Oscar Wilde

Few brilliant quotes by Oscar Wilde:


There is only one thing in the world that is worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.


Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.


I have nothing to declare except my genius.


I sometimes think that God in creating man somewhat overestimated his ability.


Give me the luxuries and I can dispense the necessities.


Long engagements give people the opportunity of finding out each other’s character before marriage, which is never advisable.


I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked, and being really good all the time. This would be hypocrisy.


One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art.


It is better to be beautiful than to be good, but it is better to be good than to be ugly.


If this is the way Queen Victoria treats her convicts she doesn’t deserve to have any.


Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.


Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.


Work is a refuge of people who have nothing better to do.


It’s absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.

I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.


Always forgive your enemies, nothing annoys them so much.


Experience is the name we give to our mistakes.


A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.


The greatest of all sins is stupidity.
