"There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about." ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde "I know what conscience is, to begin with. It is not what you told me it was. It is the divinest thing in us. Don't sneer at it, Harry, any more,--at least not before me. I want to be good. I can't bear the idea of my soul being hideous." ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde "How sad it is! I shall grow old, and horrid, and dreadful. But this picture will remain always young. It will never be older than this particular day of June. . . . If it was only the other way! If it was I who were to be always young, and the picture that were to grow old! For this--for this--I would give everything! Yes, there is nothing in the whole world I would not give!" ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde "I knew that I had come face to face with some one whose mere personality was so fascinating that, if I allowed it to do so, it would absorb my whole nature, my whole soul, my very art itself." ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde "The truth is rarely pure and never simple. Modern life would be very tedious if it were either, and modern literature a complete impossibility!" ~ The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde "London society is full of women of the very highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years." ~ The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde "It is very painful for me to be forced to speak the truth. It is the first time in my life that I have ever been reduced to such a painful position, and I am really quite inexperienced in doing anything of the kind." ~ The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde "I do not approve of anything that tampers with natural ignorance. Ignorance is like a delicate exotic fruit; touch it and the bloom is gone. The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of violence in Grosvenor Square." ~ The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde "To lose one parent, Mr. Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness." ~ The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde "The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what Fiction means." ~ The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde
