A little sincerity is a dangerous thing and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.”   —   Oscar Wilde

(He was probably the most unpretentious person of his day and age.  The “higher morals” of the Victorian Era didn’t exactly jibe with his lifestyle.  But, by some of today’s . . . standards? . . . he might even be considered . . . boring.  The times they are ever a changin’, kiddies!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The value of an idea has nothing to do with the sincerity of the man who expresses it.”   —   Oscar Wilde

He has one of those terrible weak natures that are not susceptible to influence.”   —   Oscar Wilde

An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.”   —   Oscar Wilde

There is only one thing worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.”   —   Oscar Wilde

(Nobody wants to feel like they’ve been forgotten, so it’s kind of reassuring when you hear that people are talking about you.  The only thing I don’t like is the old wives tale that says when you bite your lip while eating:  Someone’s talking about you!  Please!  Stop talking about me while I’m eating!  Because, once you bite your lip it swells, and then you’re more likely to re-bite your lip, making it even worse!  Yeah.  I bite my lip a lot while eating.  So, Please.  Refrain from talking about yer ol’ uncle during meal times.  Keep in mind that I reside in Eastern Standard Time, and kind of use your best judgement.  Outside of those times . . . jabber away about me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”   —   Oscar Wilde
