Here is a collection of quotes from the plays, novels, and lacerating wit of Oscar Wilde-a man who boasted that he could talk spontaneously on any subject. This claim is proved by the wicked and clever comments about art, human nature, morals, society, politics, history, and numerous other subjects contained in this book, including the infamous "I can resist everything except temptation" and "A man who desires to get married should know either everything or nothing." His snubs and insults became the talk of his time and are still great bits of humor to accentuate speeches, letters, or dinner party conversations.
