Pessimist: One who, when he has the choice of two evils, chooses both.
Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

Simple pleasures are the last refuge of the complex.
If God really wanted to punish, he'd answer all our prayers.
Experience is the name everyone gives to his mistakes.
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.
There is luxury in self-reproach. When we blame ourselves we feel that no one else has a right to blame us. It is the confession, not the priest, that gives us absolution.

It's either the wallpaper or me. One of us has to go. [These were his dying words.]

Men always want to be a woman's first love; women have a more subtle instinct: what they like is to be a man's last romance.
When a man has once loved a woman he will do anything for her except continue to love her. When one is in love one begins by deceiving oneself. And one ends by deceiving others. This is what the world calls a romance.
