#Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde is my role model and you expect me to be "normal" and stick to your "moral code"? Bold.

“Society, as we have constituted it, will have no place for me, has none to offer; but Nature, whose sweet rains fall on unjust and just alike, will have clefts in the rocks where I may hide, and secret valleys in whose silence I may weep undisturbed. She will hang the night with stars so that I may walk abroad in the darkness without stumbling, and send the wind over my footprints so that none may track me to my hurt: she will cleanse me in great waters, and with bitter herbs make me whole.”
― Oscar Wilde, De Profundis-

I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.

Normalise liking poetry because you like the way it sounds and art because you think its beautiful. You don’t have to understand the deeper meaning of something to appreciate it - poetry is bloody difficult to analyse and art requires an extensive knowledge of movements and artists to properly get - so please just wonder around art galleries and decide which pieces you’d buy if you could, and read out lines of poetry simply because they have a nice ring to them.

When Oscar Wilde said, "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars," and, "To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all," and, "The truth is rarely pure and never simple."

I love my English lectures but one thing that genuinely upsets me is seeing how many works of Irish literature are claimed as or assumed to be “British literature”. Like Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde and Seamus Heaney weren’t British artists...they were Irish. Why does Britain get to take credit for Irish pieces???
