Inspire Me: Oscar Wilde

Every once in a while you find a quote that just really fits everything you believe in, a life mantra so to speak. For several years now I’ve adopted one from Oscar Wilde as my own. “You can never be overdressed or overeducated.”

While that one is a favorite, there are quite a few others I truly love as well. I hope the quotes below inspire you just as much as they did me.

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”

“The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.”

“Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.”

“Women are made to be loved, not understood.”

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

“The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.”

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”

“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?”
