oscar wilde quotes

A little sincerity is a dangerous thing,
and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.

The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on.
It is never any use to oneself.


Tread lightly, she is near
Under the snow,
Speak gently, she can hear
The daisies grow.

All her bright golden hair
Tarnished with dust,
She that was young and fair
Fallen to dust.


The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.


Yet each man kills the thing he loves,
By each let this be heard,
Some do it with a bitter look
Some with a flattering word,
The coward does it with a kiss,
The brave man with a sword!


A man can be happy with any woman,
as long as he does not love her.


I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.


I am not young enough to know everything.


I think that God in creating Man
somewhat overestimated his ability.
