A dozen favourite quotes of Oscar Wilde

  • 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.
  • Life is not governed by will or intention. Life is a question of nerves, and fibers, and slowly built-up cells in which thought hides itself, and passion has its dreams.
  • A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything, and the value of nothing.
  • Life is not complex. We are complex. Life is simple, and the simple thing is the right thing.
  • Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.
  • Always! That is the dreadful word … it is a meaningless word, too.
  • The truth is rarely pure, and never simple.
  • A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.
  • To most of us the real life is the life we do not lead.
  • Pleasure is the only thing to live for. Nothing ages like happiness.
  • The old believe everything: the middle-aged suspect everything: the young know everything.
  • The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself.
