Oscar Wilde / Vladimir Kush | Quotes



The critic has to educate the public; the artist has to educate the critic.
To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.
A man's face is his autobiography. A woman's face is her work of fiction.
A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.
There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
