Happy Birthday, Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde

(The man, not my cat.)

Oscar was born a century too early and died too soon at age 46.

He was a wickedly keen observer of human behavior.

In honor of his birthday, please enjoy some of my favorite quotes:

Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.

Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.

If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you.

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

The truth is rarely pure and never simple.

Happy 156th Birthday, Oscar.


  1. My favorite is his deathbed quote:

    Either this wallpaper goes or I do.

  2. I almost added that one! Witty to the very end.
