“Woman begins by resisting a man’s advances and ends by blocking his retreat.”

Worth v. Risk

“What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.”



Words: Beautiful in their Horror

“Words! Mere words! How terrible they were! How clear, and vivid, and cruel! One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there was in them! They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet as that of viol or of lute. Mere words! Was there anything so real as words?”

**The Picture of Dorian Grey

Fashion Shows –Why So Often?

“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.”

**Oscar Wilde

Life Without Gossip

“There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about,

and that is not being talked about.”

–Oscar Wilde
