Oscar Wilde's quotes
"Music is the art which is most nigh to tears and memory."
"Music makes one feel so romantic - at least it always gets on one's nerves - which is the same thing nowadays."
"My experience is that as soon as people are old enough to know better, they don't know anything at all."
"No man should have a secret from his wife; she invariably finds out."
"No woman should ever be quite accurate about her age. It looks so calculating."
"One can always be kind to people about whom one cares nothing."
"One should never trust a woman who tells her real age. If she tells that, she'll tell anything."
"Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious."
"Perhaps, after all, America never has been discovered. I myself would say that it had merely been detected."
"Punctuality is the thief of time."
"Self-denial is the shining sore on the leprous body of Christianity."
"Skepticism is the beginning of faith."
"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go."
"The commonest thing is delightful if only one hides it."
"The intellect is not a serious thing, and never has been. It is an instrument on which one plays, that is all."
"The mind of the thoroughly well-informed man is a dreadful thing. It is like a bric-à-brac shop, all monsters and dust, with everything priced above its proper value."
"The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything, the young know everything."
"The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future."
"The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on; it is never of any use to oneself."
"The public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius."
