WILDE CHILD
Oscar Wilde was the king of the epigram, bon mot, scathing remark, and witty double entendre.

"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go."

"Of course, America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up."

"I don't recognize you — I've changed a lot."

"America is one long expectoration."

"She is a peacock in everything but beauty."

"He would stab his best friend for the sake of writing an epigram on his tombstone."

"A monstrous orchid."
— Oscar Wilde on Aubrey Beardsley
