  • "I have the simplest tastes," remarked Oscar Wilde. "I am always satisfied with the best." In this superlative
    collection of quotations by the great Irish playwright and wit, readers will find the very best of Wilde's scintillating
    comments on art, human nature, morals, society, politics, history, and numerous other subjects. Epigrams, aphorisms, and
    other bon mots gleaned from Wilde's enduringly popular plays, essays, and conversation offer amusing, thought-provoking
    observations that resonate with truth and profundity beneath their comic surface.
    Widely acknowledged as the most brilliant talker of his age, Wilde once explained to André Gide, "I put all my genius
    into my life; I put only my talent into my works." This fine collection of nearly 400 quotes, organized by category,
    contains quotations from both his works and his conversation, including gems from his personal life with which even
    devotees may be unfamiliar. The result is a splendid introduction to Wilde's mind and personality, embodied in a feast
    of the English language's most brilliant and perceptive witticisms.
