Oscar Wilde

***************

I want my God dead . . .
Not sick, not dying, but dead . . .
Unless He’s insane

***************

In America
patriotism is the poor
substitute for wit

***************

It is only through
art that we can know the true
value of money

***************

The only thing worse
than death is conversation
about the weather

***************

A cynic is one
who believes that a work of
fiction can’t be real

***************

A man can’t be too
careful in the choice of his
mother and father

***************

It is better to
have a permanent income
than to be a child

***************

Reading Henry James
over and over again
can be quite fatal

***************

Everything that is
popular for more than six
months is a failure

***************

The barbarism of
America is the curse
of its President

***************

Democracy is
bludgeoning us with vulgar,
stupid journalism
