There is perhaps no author that can give a wittier, truer statement (of any kind) than Oscar Wilde. He was a man of brilliance, and his sense of humor is one that still manages to be enjoyed decades after his passing. Here are some of our favorite words of wisdom from the man himself. Take a moment and enjoy yourself.

 

“If you are not too long, I will wait here for you all my life. ” 

 

“Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.”

 

“Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is far the best ending for one.”

 

“True friends stab you in the front.”

 

“The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.”

 

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

 

“Memory… is the diary that we all cary about with us.”

 

“How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being.”

 

“The truth is rarely pure and never simple.”

 

“A man’s face is his autobiography. A woman’s face is her work of fiction.”
