Oscar Wilde

The nicest feeling in the world is to do a good deed anonymously-and have somebody find out.

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

The basis of optimism is sheer terror.

Memory is the diary we all carry about with us.

Experience is one thing you can’t get for nothing.

Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.

Anybody can sympathise with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathise with a friend’s success.

We live in an age when unnecessary things are our only necessities.

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.

Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing.
