Everything popular is wrong...

Oscar Wilde quotes

 

An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.

 

“What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.”

 

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

 

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

 

“The critic has to educate the public; the artist has to educate the critic.”

 

“I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.” 

 

“Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much.”


“I love talking about nothing. It is the only thing I know anything about.”

 

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


“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

 

“There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.”

 

“Experience is the name every one gives to their mistakes.” 

 

“There are many things that we would throw away if we were not afraid that others might pick them up.”

 

“A man who does not think for himself does not think at all.”

 

“Nothing is so aggravating than calmness.”

 

“Pessimist: One who, when he has the choice of two evils, chooses both.”

 

“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.” 

 

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.” 

 

“Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.”
