Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

Udvalgt af Rune Engelbreth Larsen Udprint

OSCAR WILDE: »There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.«


OSCAR WILDE (Harry): »Discord is to be forced to be in harmony with others. One's own life - that is the important thing. As for the lives of one's neighbours, if one wishes to be a prig or a Puritan, one can flaunt one's own moral views about them, but they are not one's concern. Besides, Individualism has really the higher aim. Modern morality consists in accepting the standard of one's age. I consider that for any man of culture to accept the standard of his age is a form of the grossest immorality.«


OSCAR WILDE (Harry): »It is a sad truth, but we have lost the faculty of giving lovely names to things. Names are everything. I never quarrel with actions. My own quarrel is with words. That is the reason I hate vulgar ralism in litteratur. The man who could call a spade a spade should be compelled to use one. It is the only thing he is fit for.«


OSCAR WILDE (Harry): »Life is not governed by will or intention. Life is a question of nerves, and fibres, and slowly built-up cells in which thought hides itself and passion has its dreams. You may fancy yourself safe, and think yourself strong. But a chance tone of colour in a room or a monring sky, a particular perfume that you had once loved and that brings subtle memories with it, a line from a forgotten poem that you had come across again, a cadence from a piece of music that you had ceased to play - I tell you, Dorian, that it is on things like these that our lives depend.«

THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY, 1891


OSCAR WILDE (Algernon): »Oh! it is absurd to have a hard and fast rule about what one should read and what one shouldn't. More than half of modern culture depends on what one shouldn't read.«


OSCAR WILDE (Algernon): »The truth is rarely pure and never simple.«

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, 1895


OSCAR WILDE: »I am a born antinomian. I am one of those who are made for exceptions, not for laws. But while I see that there is nothing wrong in what one does, I see that there is something wrong in what one becomes.«


OSCAR WILDE: »Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their life a mimicry, their passions a quotation.«


OSCAR WILDE: »We know now that we do not see with the eye or hear with the ear. They are merely channels for the transmission, adequate or inadequate, of senseimpressions. It is in the brain that the poppy is red, that the apple is odorous, that the skylark sings.«


OSCAR WILDE: »I can be perfectly happy by myself. With freedom, books, flowers and the moon, who could not be happy?«

DE PROFUNDIS, 1897
