#1. Besides, if Hans came here, he might ask me to let him have some flour on credit, and that I could not do. Flour is one thing, and friendship is another, and they should not be confused. Why, the words are spelled differently, and mean quite different things. Everyone can see that. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#2. Every fact of science was once damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. The entire web of culture and 'progress,' everything on earth that is man-made and not given to us by nature, is the concrete manifestation of some man's refusal to bow to Authority. We would own no more, know no more, and be no more than the first apelike hominids if it were not for the rebellious, the recalcitrant, and the intransigent. As Oscar Wilde truly said, 'Disobedience was man's Original Virtue. - Author: Robert Anton Wilson
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#3. As I lounged in the Park, or strolled down Piccadilly, I used to look at everyone who passed me, and wonder, with mad curiosity, what sort of lives they led. some of them fascinated me. Others filled me with terror. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#4. Being natural is simply a pose, and the most irritating pose I know. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#5. I want to conquer the world and it seems like my own family is putting a stop to that. - Author: Kim Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Kim Wilde
#6. Be happy, be happy; you shall have your red rose. I will build it out of music by moonlight, and stain it with my own heart's-blood. All that I ask of you in return is that you will be a true lover, for Love is wiser than Philosophy, though she is wise, and mightier than Power, though he is mighty. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#7. The Love that dare not speak its name" in this century is such a great affection of an elder for a younger man as there was between David and Jonathan, such as Plato made the very basis of his philosophy, and such as you find in the sonnets of Michelangelo and Shakespeare. It is that deep, spiritual affection that is as pure as it is perfect. It dictates and pervades great works of art like those of Shakespeare and Michelangelo, and those two letters of mine, such as they are. It is in this century misunderstood, so much misunderstood that it may be described as the "Love that dare not speak its name," and on account of it I am placed where I am now. It is beautiful, it is fine, it is the noblest form of affection. There is nothing unnatural about it. It is intellectual, and it repeatedly exists between an elder and a younger man, when the elder man has intellect, and the younger man has all the joy, hope and glamour of life before him. That it should be so, the world does not understand. The world mocks at it and sometimes puts one in the pillory for it. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#8. We wish we could have been there for you. We didn't have many role models of our own
we latched on to the foolish love of Oscar Wilde and the well-versed longing of Walt Whitman because nobody else was there to show us an untortured path. We were going to be your role models. We were going to give you art and music and confidence and shelter and a much better world. Those who survived lived to do this. But we haven't been there for you. We've been here. Watching as you become the role models. - Author: David Levithan
Champeau And Wilde quotes by David Levithan
#9. The ugly and stupid have the best of it in this world. They can sit at their ease and gape at the play. If they know nothing of victory, they are at least spared the knowledge of defeat. They live as we all should live
undisturbed, indifferent, and without disquiet. They never bring ruin upon others, nor ever receive it from alien hands. Your rank and wealth, Henry; my brains, such as they are
my art, whatever it may be worth; Dorian Gray's good looks
we shall all suffer for what the gods have given us, suffer terribly. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#10. Successful people are usually more lively than those who are unsuccessful. The quickening of the spirit they feel comes out of their creativity, and success detaches them from the more rigid outlook on life - it puts them in the flow. So the shakers and movers, by their very nature, are moving faster, taking more risks, and investing more in the world than their less active counterparts. - Author: Stuart Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Stuart Wilde
#11. How ugly it all was! And how horribly real ugliness made things! He felt a little annoyed with Lord Henry for having - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#12. Yet one had ancestors in literature as well as in one's own race, nearer perhaps in type and temperament, many of them, and certainly with an influence of which one was more absolutely conscious. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#13. Throughout my work is the idea, over and over, that we must all learn to respect one another. - Author: Cornel Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Cornel Wilde
#14. Yes: there was to be, as Lord Henry had prophesied, a new
Hedonism that was to recreate life and to save it from that harsh
uncomely puritanism that is having, in our own day, its curious
revival. It was to have its service of the intellect, certainly,
yet it was never to accept any theory or system that would involve
the sacrifice of any mode of passionate experience. Its aim,
indeed, was to be experience itself, and not the fruits of
experience, sweet or bitter as they might be. Of the asceticism
that deadens the senses, as of the vulgar profligacy that dulls
them, it was to know nothing. But it was to teach man to
concentrate himself upon the moments of a life that is itself but a
moment. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#15. Kind words are lime to snare our enemies! I hold you in the hollow of my hand and have no need to waste kind words. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#16. Each of us has heaven and hell in him, Basil, cried Dorian with a wild gesture of despair. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#17. Let your infectious smile infect the whole world with love and joy. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Debasish Mridha
#18. It is not merely that I paint from him, draw from him, sketch from him. Of course I have done all that. But he is much more to me than a model or a sitter. I won't tell you that I am dissatisfied with what I have done of him, or that his beauty is such that Art cannot express it. There is nothing that Art cannot express, and I know that the work I have done, since I met Dorian Gray, is good work, is the best work of my life - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#19. And when wind and winter harden
All the loveless land,
It will whisper of the garden,
You will understand. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#20. Youth! There is nothing like it. It's absurd to
talk of the ignorance of youth. The only people whose opinions I listen to now with any respect are people much younger than myself. They seem in front of me. Life has
revealed to them her last wonder. As for the aged, I always contradict the aged. I do it on principle. If you ask them their opinion on something that happened yesterday, they
solemnly give you the opinions current in 1820, when people wore high stocks and knew absolutely nothing. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#21. The world you see is seen by you alone. What entices you and what repels you, what strengthens you and what weakens you, is part of a pattern that no one else shares. Therefore, as Mr. Wilde said, no two people can perceive the same "truth," because each person's perspective is different. - Author: Marcus Buckingham
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Marcus Buckingham
#22. Ignorance is like a delicate exotic fruit; touch it and the bloom is gone. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#23. Nonsense!" growled the Wolf. "I tell you that it is all the fault of the Government, and if you don't believe me I shall eat you." The Wolf had a thoroughly practical mind, and was never at a loss for a good argument. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#24. Money as such is, as Oscar Wilde said, perfectly useless. You can't eat it, drink it, shelter yourself from the cold with it, wear it, or make love with it unless deeply disturbed. In and of itself, it has no emotions, no mind, and no conscience. It doesn't put out flowers or have children, and it makes a lousy pet. It has meaning only when it circulates, and is exchanged for other things; and money doesn't do that for itself. People do that, using money as a symbolic token. - Author: Margaret Atwood
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Margaret Atwood
#25. Don't blame other people for your problems. Only you can do anything about your problems. Inspect, reflect, realize, and then find the cure. No one can do it for you. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Debasish Mridha
#26. producing a kind of momentary Japanese effect, and making him think of those pallid, jade-faced painters of Tokyo who, through the medium of an art that is necessarily immobile, seek to convey the sense of swiftness and motion. The - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#27. And I will sing how sad Proserpina Unto a grave and gloomy Lord was wed, And lure the silver-breasted Helena Back from the lotus meadows of the dead, So shalt thou see that awful loveliness For which two mighty Hosts met fearfully in war's abyss! And - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#28. I shaved the back of my head once and did the asymmetrical hair. - Author: Olivia Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Olivia Wilde
#29. All those who come in contact with his [Christ's] personality, even though they may neither bow to his altar or kneel before his priest, in some way find that the ugliness of their sin is taken away and the beauty of their sorrow is revealed to them. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#30. Be like a tree, bloom like a flower, sing like a bird, and dance like a peacock. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Debasish Mridha
#31. Do you want to kill his love for you? What sort of existence will he have if you rob him of the fruits of his ambition, if you take him from the splendour of a great political career, if you close the doors of public life against him, if you condemn him to sterile failure, he who was made for triumph and success? Women are not meant to judge us but to forgive us when we need forgiveness. Pardon, not punishment, is their mission. Why should you scourge him with rods for a sin done in his youth, before he knew you, before he knew himself? A man's life is of more value than a woman's. It has larger issues, wider scope, greater ambitions. A women's life revolves around curves of emotions. It is upon lines of intellect that man's life progresses. Don't make any terrible mistake, Lady Chiltern. A woman who can keep a man's love, and love him in return, has done all the world wants of women, or should want of them. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#32. Algernon. Then your wife will. You don't seem to realise, that in married life three is company and two is none. Jack. [Sententiously.] That, my dear young friend, is the theory that the corrupt French Drama has been propounding for the last fifty years. Algernon. Yes; and that the happy English home has proved in half the time. Jack. For heaven's sake, don't try to be cynical. It's perfectly easy to be cynical. Algernon. My dear fellow, it isn't easy to be anything nowadays. There's such a lot of beastly competition about. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#33. I treated Art as the supreme reality and life as a mere mode of fiction. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#34. To be honest, I chose romance because writing a book seemed so dauntingly long. I looked around for something short, discovered Harlequin romances, and decided to read a few to see if I could do it. - Author: Lori Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Lori Wilde
#35. The next morning, when the Otis family met at breakfast, they discussed the ghost at some length. The United States Minister was naturally a little annoyed to find that his present had not been accepted. "I have no wish," he said, "to do the ghost any personal injury, and I must say that, considering the length of time he has been in the house, I don't think it is at all polite to throw pillows at him" - a very just remark, at which, I am sorry to say, the twins burst into shouts of laughter. "Upon the other hand," he continued, "if he really declines to use the Rising Sun Lubricator, we shall have to take his chains from him. It would be quite impossible to sleep, with such a noise going on outside the bedrooms. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#36. She is very lovely, and if she knows as little about life as she does about acting, she will be a delightful experience. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#37. Point of view of form, the type of all the arts is the art of the musician. From the point of view of feeling, the actor's craft is the type. All art is at once surface and symbol. Those who go beneath - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#38. I did not think I should be ever loved: do you indeed
Love me so much as now you say you do?
Ask of the sea-bird if it loves the sea,
Ask of the roses if they love the rain,
Ask of the little lark, that will not sing
Till day break, if it loves to see the day:
And yet, these are but empty images,
Mere shadows of my love, which is a fire
So great that all the waters of the main
Can not avail to quench it. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#39. I think life too complex a thing to be settled by these hard and fast rules. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Oscar Wilde
#40. Great music is a great remedy for depression, but you have to drink it in with your heart and mind. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Champeau And Wilde quotes by Debasish Mridha
#41. I am not brilliant. I am curious and persistent. - Author: Debasish Mridha
