Oscar Wilde

"I don't want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them."
"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all."
"Yes- I am a dreamer. For 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."
"He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends."
"The truth is rarely pure and never simple."
"Music makes one feel so romantic - at least it always gets on one's nerves - which is the same thing nowadays."
"Who, being loved, is poor?"
"One should never trust a woman who tells one her real age. A woman who would tell one that would tell one anything."
"Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all."
"You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit."
"I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again."
"I can believe anything provided it is incredible."
