From humorous to sincere and expressive throughout, Oscar Wilde was a possessor of incredible cleverness and human truth.

1. "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

2. “Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”

3. “I don't want to go to heaven. None of my friends are there.”

4. “The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.”

5. “To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”

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

7. “I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”

8. "Crying is for plain women. Pretty women go shopping.”

9. “I can resist anything except temptation.”

10. “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
