Gr8at: Funniest Oscar Wilde Quotes

Oscar Wilde needs no introduction, of course. The Irish writer was quite simply, one of the funniest people to have ever lived. One of the all-time great wits. Below are eight of my favourites quotes. How many do you recognise? Do you have a favourite?

Oscar Wilde

I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself.

She is a peacock in everything but beauty

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.

True friends stab you in the front.

Hear no evil, speak no evil, and you’ll never be invited to a party.

There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about

Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.

Everything in moderation, including moderation

  1. Ah. I love Oscar Wilde! He is so quotable. This is a great selection. โ€œAnyone who lives within their means, lacks imagination,โ€ is one of my favorites. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  2. I like ’em all!! ๐Ÿ˜Š
    By the way, Alex, as you know am hosting a Blogathon, and I guess you are too busy to do a long post. But if you like, you can either enter this post, or better still, do another blog-post, within the next 11 days, like this, with just some good quotes, of somebody you admire born in October (preferably a film personality). I shall happily accept.

  3. Nice selection of quotes. Some of these are, of course, on a morbid humour side. I may be in the minority, but I like the quote “There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about”. I just find it witty.
