    Oscar Wilde. Witty, sorrowful, a man ahead of his time, an ego the size of a small kingdom, inspired writer, one of the most awesome people that ever lived! So there. That question about the ten people who you'd have at a table, living or dead, etc- he'd absolutely be there, at my table. Even his grave in Père Lachaise is stunning and ostentatious. Also, one of the most quotable human beings that ever was. "Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone elses opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation."


    Today is the birthday of Oscar Wilde, born in 1854. He was an Irish writer and poet. fter 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, his only novel (The Picture of Dorian Gray), his plays, and the circumstances of his imprisonment and early death.
