Oscar Wilde

To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.

Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic.

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.
