Misfortunes one can endure—they come from outside, they are accidents. But to suffer for one’s own faults—ah!—there is the sting of life.

-Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere’s Fan (via quotes-shape-us)

Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.

-Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray (via quotes-shape-us)

Nos dijeron que los sueños podían hacerse realidad, pero olvidaron mencionar que las pesadillas también son sueños.

Oscar Wilde from The Picture of Dorian Gray
I don’t like compliments, and I don’t see why a man should think he is pleasing a woman enormously when he says to her a whole heap of things that he doesn’t mean.

-Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere’s Fan (via talesofpassingtime)

The only people I would care to be with now are artists and people who have suffered: those who know what beauty is, and those who know what sorrow is: nobody else interests me.

-Oscar Wilde (via sophianism)

I am not young enough to know everything.

-Oscar Wilde (via kushandwizdom)

There are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely-or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands.

-Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere’s Fan (via quotes-shape-us)

Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

I don’t want to go to heaven. None of my friends are there.
