Gr8at: Most Philosophical/Inspirational #OscarWilde Quotes

Oscar Wilde

One post on the insightful quotes of Oscar Wilde was never going to be enough. Not even close. That’s why the first one was geared to his more wittier quotes and the second part is focused on his more philosophical, more profound quotes. Before you do, here are two extra quotes.

Bonus quote 1
Bonus quote 2

Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.

The truth is rarely pure and never simple.

Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood.

Anybody can sympathise with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathise with a friend’s success.

We are each our own devil, and we make this world our hell.
