Mr. Oscar Wilde’s wisdom: still timely?

Mr. Oscar Wilde (full name: Oscar Fingal O’Fflahertie Wills Wilde) was born on October 16, 1854. He died on November 30, 1900. For those who do not know him, Mr. Wilde was an Irish poet and playwright.

From now on, Bambi will think of Mr. Wilde every year when she will highlight the birthday of Nicolas, her nephew, who was also born on October 16 [she hopes he had a wonderful day :)!].

To conclude this brief post, if you wish, you can read some of Mr. Wilde’s quotes. The latter will be followed by an uplifting Egyptian song, by Ms. Yasmin Ali, on a positive outlook in life. In case you had a tough day or week, may you find some comfort in those words or melody.

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.

Life is too important to be taken seriously.

To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.

Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.

 Everything in moderation, including moderation.

Life is never fair, and perhaps it is a good thing for most of us that it is not.

Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.

In this world there are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.

Ultimately the bond of everything, whether in marriage or in friendship, is conversation”.

  1. I was told Oscar Wilde liked to play squash with the Prince of Wales at the palace. He had a knack for giving insults that were so complex, they nearly sounded like compliments!
