    Oscar Wilde Quotes. Great writer, lots of time to write ... -ad http://bit.ly/ITAZOj

    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."
