Selections taken from Nothing ... Except My Genius: The Wit and Wisdom of Oscar Wilde


I always think I’m going to enjoy a book of quotes or aphorisms, and I do really enjoy Oscar Wilde’s wit, but I can’t just read a book of quotes.  They all run together and I never remember them anyway.  Still, I read a few each day and as with every collection like this, some are better than others.

A favorite from this collection that I can remember:

“Murder is always a mistake.  One should never do anything one cannot talk about after dinner.”
