This book is an anthology of 230 brilliant quotes and aphorisms from Oscar Wilde and 41 selected facts about Oscar Wilde. Oscar Wilde’s Dorian Gray was based on John Gray, an incredibly handsome blond poet that Wilde met in 1889. Oscar Wilde’s mother was a feminist. Oscar Wilde died bankrupt, and his friends could only afford a sixth-class burial. Wilde married Constance Lloyd, daughter of wealthy Queen's Counsel Horace Lloyd, on May 29, 1884 and had two sons, Cyril and Vyvyan. Wilde's intimate association with Alfred Douglas led to his trial on charges of homosexuality, then illegal in Britain. He was sentenced two years hard labor for the crime of sodomy. “I have nothing to declare except my genius.” “The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.” “I love to talk about nothing. It's the only thing I know anything about.” “There is no sin except stupidity.” “Some things are too important to be taken... More > seriously.”< Less
