A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde

"I was saying," continued the Rocket, "I was saying - What was I saying?" "You were talking about yourself," replied the Roman Candle. "Of course; I knew I was discussing some interesting subject when I was so rudely interrupted."

A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde on acceptance, life, people, selfishness, variety, and wishes

Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live; it is asking others to live as one wishes to live. And unselfishness is letting other people's lives alone, not interfering with them. Selfishness always aims at uniformity of type. Unselfishness recognizes infinite variety of type as a delightful thing, accepts it, acquiesces in it, enjoys it.

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
