"Do you know I am afraid that good people do a great deal of harm in the world. Certainly the greatest harm they do is that they make badness of such extraordinary importance. It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious."
Oscar Wilde Lady Windermere’s Fan (via missmirim)
"It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it."
Oscar Wilde (via bibliophilebunny)
"I don’t want to go to heaven. None of my friends are there."
Oscar Wilde (via stuff—n—things)
"The great things in life are what they seem to be. And for that reason, strange as it may sound to you, often are very difficult to interpret (understand). Great passion are for the great of souls. Great events can only be seen by people who are on a level with them. We think we can have our visions for nothing. We cannot. Even the finest and most self–sacrificing visions have to paid for. Strangely enough, that is what makes them fine."
Oscar Wilde (via itsquoted)
"Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power."
Oscar Wilde (via art-and-fury)
"There are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely - or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands. You have that moment now. Choose."
Oscar Wilde (via thinkgivebelove)
