Famous Oscar Wild quotation | Our Funny Planet No man is rich enough to buy back his past The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast I don`t like principles. I prefer prejudices One should always be in love. That is the reason one should never marry Life is never fair… An perhaps it is a good thing for most of us that it is not I can believe anything, provided that it is quite incredible Experience is the name everyone gives to his mistakes Humanity takes itself too seriously. Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood I am not young enough to know everything We are each our own devil, and we make this world our hell I can resist anything but temptation Life is much too important a thing ever to talk seriously about it Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them as much A kiss may ruin a human life I am always astonishing myself.
