Oscar Wilde

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

"Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative."

"America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between."

"Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter."

"Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months."

"I am not young enough to know everything."

"I always like to know everything about my new friends, and nothing about my old ones."

"Illusion is the first of all pleasures."

"It is a very sad thing that nowadays there is so little useless information."

"It is always a silly thing to give advice, but to give good advice is fatal."

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth. "

"Morality, like art, means drawing a line someplace."

"One can survive everything, nowadays, except death, and live down everything except a good reputation."
