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.

You can never be overdressed or overeducated.

Experience is merely the name men gave to their mistakes.

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

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.

I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.
