Hello Pretty People: Oscar Wilde My Favourite..

A tribute to Oscar wilde::… i love this poet – as much as I love “Hot chips”…

Oscar Wilde

1854-1900. Irish poet and dramatist.

For someone in his era, the realistic truthful quotes are hilarious – I do wonder how they handle his thoughts back in the Victorian Era..

I would love to be his friend back then… I guess I’d be Jane Austen.

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

 

Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship.

 

When a man has once loved a woman, he will do anything for her, except continue to love her.

 

To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.

 

The best way to make children good is to make them happy.

 

Children begin by loving their parents. After a time they judge them. Rarely, if ever, do they forgive them.

 

Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.

 

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

 

The books that the world calls immoral are the books that show the world its own shame.

 

Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways.

there Is so many more I love from him…
