More from Oscar Wilde

A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.

ALGERNON. The truth is rarely pure and never simple. Modern life would be very tedious if it were either, and modern literature a complete impossibility!
JACK. That wouldn’t be at all a bad thing.

Every woman grows up to be her mother: it is her curse. No man does, and that is his.
