A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde

Yet each man kills the thing he loves,
By each let this be heard,
Some do it with a bitter look,
Some with a flattering word,
The coward does it with a kiss,
The brave man with a sword!

A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde on beauty, intellectual, intellegence, talent, and ugly

"But beauty, real beauty, ends where an intellectual expression begins. Intellect is in itself a mode of exaggeration, and destroys the harmony of any face.  The moment one sits down to think, one becomes all nose, or all forehead, or something horrid."
