......................with Oscar Wilde:
Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live. It is asking other people to live as one wishes to live.
It is only intellectually lost who ever argue.
It is only an auctioneer who can equally and impartially admire all schools of art.
If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
The truth is rarely pure and never simple.
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood.
Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.
I think God, in creating man, somewhat overestimated his ability.
I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.
