Oscar Wilde's quotes
"An engagement should come on a young girl as a surprise, pleasant or unpleasant, as the case may be. It is hardly a matter that she could be allowed to arrange for herself."
"When a woman marries again it is because she detested her first husband. When a man marries again it is because he adored his first wife. Women try their luck; men risk theirs."
"The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on; it is never of any use to oneself."
"A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing."
"Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes."
"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all."
"A man can't be too careful in the choice of his enemies."
"We live in an age when unnecessary things are our only necessities."
"Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is manís original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion."
"To believe is very dull. To doubt is intensely engrossing. To be on the alert is to live, to be lulled into security is to die."
"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."
"A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world."
"I can resist everything except temptation."
"One can always be kind to people about whom one cares nothing."
"It is only about things that do not interest one, that one can give a really unbiased opinion; and this is no doubt the reason why an unbiased opinion is always valueless."
"The commonest thing is delightful if only one hides it."
"There is luxury in self-reproach. When we blame ourselves, we feel no one else has a right to blame us."
"A kiss may ruin a human life."
"Yet each man kills the thing he loves, from all let this be heard. Some does it with a bitter look, some with a flattering word. The coward does it with a kiss the brave man with the sword."
"To have the reputation of possessing the most perfect social tact, talk to every woman as if you loved her, and to every man as if he bored you."
