Oscar Wilde (1856-1900)

Irish playwright Oscar Wilde was born in 1856 and died in 1900, his health broken from time he spent in prison. He was a controversial figure in his time and was known (among other things) for his witty and profound epigrams.


“All of us are in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars.”


“Ordinary riches can be stolen; real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.”


“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, there lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”


“A man who does not think for himself does not think.”


“By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, journalism keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community.”
