    Why we need fairytales. Oscar Wilde's magical stories for children have often been dismissed as lesser works, but as examples of how important imagination is to us all – young and old alike – they are a delight.

Oscar Wilde quote. @Christine McDermott @Alice Morgado @Rachel Buie

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854—30 November 1900). Oscar was an Irish writer and poet. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Today he is remembered for his epigrams, plays and the circumstances of his imprisonment, followed by his early death.

What you read when you don't have to determines what you will be when you can't help it - Oscar Wilde. Library promo POSTER © Eleanor.Margaret (Student, Graphic designer. UK) via Flickr

Works of literature have the power to deeply influence people's entire beings, and what someone chooses to read can be defining of character even when they don't realize it. Once in the hands of the reader the author can usually do no more, but authors have already put so much of their effort and their self into a book that they can hope it has an impact.
