Aphorisms by Oscar Wilde

Mr Oscar Wilde

oscarwilde2 I love aphorisms. An aphorism is:
“a concise statement or popular saying that expresses a principle or truth in a terse, thoughtful manner” (Wikipedia).

Aphorisms by Oscar Wilde:

“I am not young enough to know everything”

“Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess”

“No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did he would cease to be an artist”

“Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught”

“In life, we are all in the gutter. Some of us just tend to look up at the stars”

“Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul”
