Oscar Wilde Quotes

To get into the best society nowadays, one has either to feed people, amuse people, or shock people.

A man who can dominate a London dinner table can dominate the world. The future belongs to the dandy. It is the exquisites who are going to rule.

I suppose society is wonderfully delightful. To be in it is merely a bore. But to be out of it is simply a tragedy.

Half the pretty women in London smoke cigarettes. I prefer the other half.

A cigarette is the perfect type of perfect pleasure. It is exquisite and it leaves one unsatisfied.

Nothing that actually occurs is of the smallest importance.

The value of an idea has nothing whatever to do with the sincerity of the man who expresses it.

Insincerity is merely a method by which we can multiply our personalities.

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

There is no sin except stupidity.
