  • ⋅The true critic is he who bears within himself the dreams and ideas and feelings of myriad generations, and to whom no form of thought is alien, no emotional impulse obscure. /Oscar Wilde
  • ⋅There is much to be said in favor of modern journalism. By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, it keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community. By carefully chronicling the current events of contemporary life, it shows us of what very little importance such events really are. By invariably discussing the unnecessary, it makes us understand what things are requisite for culture, and what are not. /Oscar Wilde
  • ⋅It was a fatal day when the public discovered that the pen is mightier than the paving-stone, and can be made as offensive as the brickbat. They at once sought for the journalist, found him, developed him, and made him their industrious and well-paid servant. It is greatly to be regretted, for both their sakes. /Oscar Wilde
  • ⋅It is a dangerous thing to reform anyone. /Oscar Wilde
  • ⋅Bad manners make a journalist. /Oscar Wilde
  • ⋅There are three kinds of despots. There is the despot who tyrannizes over the body. There is the despot who tyrannizes over the soul. There is the despot who tyrannizes over the soul and body alike. The first is called the Prince. The second is called the Pope. The third is called the People. /Oscar Wilde
  • ⋅Despotism is unjust to everybody, including the despot, who was probably made for better things. /Oscar Wilde
  • ⋅She wore far too much rouge last night and not quite enough clothes. That is always a sign of despair in a woman. /Oscar Wilde
  • ⋅Through our sunless lanes creeps Poverty with her hungry eyes, and Sin with his sodden face follows close behind her. Misery wakes us in the morning and Shame sits with us at night. /Oscar Wilde

  • ⋅With an evening coat and a white tie, anybody, even a stock broker, can gain a reputation for being civilized. /Oscar Wilde
