A master of the epigram, Oscar Wilde quotes are some of the most witty and clever of our time. The talented Irish author and playwright of societal comedies such as "The Ideal Husband" and the classic "Importance of Being Ernest", was prolific in his ability to observe life in wry and amusing ways. Tragically, his comment, "If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you" was a precursor to his imprisonment on sodomy charges, the harsh conditions of which led to his illness and death. Oscar Wilde quotes are perceptive, playful and priceless, begging the question - is it true that life follows art, or the other way around?
