"Oscar Wilde Quotes"


+ Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life.

+ I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

+ It is through art, and through art only, that we can realize our perfection; through art and art only that we can shield ourselves from the sordid perils of actual existence.

+ Education is an admirable thing. But it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.

+ Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.

+ Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

+ The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it immensely. All art is useless.

+ I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself.

+ No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did he would cease to be an artist.

+ A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.

+ Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about it.

+ I put all my genius into my life; I put only my talent into my works.

+ I am the only person in the world I should like to know thoroughly.

+ One should absorb the colour of life, but one should never remember its details. Details are always vulgar.

+ The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.

+ All art is at once surface and symbol. Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril. Those who read the symbol do so at their peril.

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

+ Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.

+ What a pity that in life we only get our lessons when they are of no use to us.

+ I am but too conscious of the fact that we are born in an age when only the dull are treated seriously, and I live in terror of not being misunderstood.

+ Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

+ I have said to you to speak the truth is a painful thing. To be forced to tell lies is much worse.

+ Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.

+ A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.
