Oscar Wilde's quotes
"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."
"Women love us for our defects. If we have enough of them, they will forgive us everything, even our gigantic intellects."
"Woman begins by resisting a man's advances and ends by blocking his retreat."
"Woman are meant to be loved, not to be understood."
"Wickedness is a myth invented by good people to account for the curious attraction of others."
"Where there is no exaggeration there is no love, and where there is no love there is no understanding."
"When the gods wish to punish us, they answer our prayers."
"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."
"We live in an age when unnecessary things are our only necessities."
"We have really everything in common with America nowadays except, of course, language."
"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."
"Ultimately the bond of all companionship, wheather in marriage or in friendship, is conversation."
"True friends stab you in the front."
"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all."
"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."
"To give and not expect return, that is what lies at the heart of love."
"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."
"Those whom the gods love grow young."
"Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love: it is the faithless who know love's tragedies."
"There is only one class in the community that thinks more about money than the rich, and that is the poor."
