Actors, Acting
Engrave this Quote While we look to the dramatist to give romance to realism, we ask of the actor to give realism to romance.

Advice
Engrave this Quote LORD GORING:
I am glad you have called. I am going to give you some good advice.

-Oscar Wilde, An Ideal Husband: Act 3
Engrave this Quote LORD GORING:
My father told me to go to bed an hour ago. I don't see why I shouldn't give you the same advice. I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself.

Age
Engrave this Quote MRS. ALLONBY: She told me yesterday, and in quite a loud voice too, that she was only eighteen. It was most annoying.
LORD ILLINGWORTH: One should never trust a woman who tells one her real age. A woman who would tell one that, would tell one anything.

Engrave this Quote I have never admitted that I am more than twenty-nine, or thirty at the most. Twenty-nine when there are pink shades, thirty when there are not.

-Oscar Wilde, Lady Windemere's Fan, 1892
Engrave this Quote That does not seem to me to be a grave objection. Thirty-five is a very attractive age. London society is full of women of the very highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years. Lady Dumbleton is an instance in point. To my own knowledge she has been thirty-five ever since she arrived at the age of forty, which was many years ago now. I see no reason why our dear Cecily should not be even still more attractive at the age you mention than she is at present. There will be a large accumulation of property.

Anarchy
Engrave this Quote People sometimes inquire what form of government is most suitable for an artist to live under. To this question there is only one answer. The form of government that is most suitable to the artist is no government at all.

Appearance
Engrave this Quote It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.

Argument & Debate

Aristocracy
Engrave this Quote You should study the Peerage, Gerald. It is the one book a young man about town should know thoroughly, and it is the best thing in fiction the English have ever done.
