Wilde Times

A few quotes from my FAV, Oscar Wilde:

One's style is one's signature always.

That is the mission of true art--to make us pause and look at a thing a second time.

Emotion for the sake of emotion is the aim of life.

The secret of life is never to have an emotion that is unbecoming.

London is too full of fogs...and serious people...whether the fogs produce the serious people or whether the serious people produce the fogs, I don't know.

    Ah, one's style is one's signature? I like that. My signature would be wacked then?
    Oh my, I think I need a style!
    Or, I am out of style. My style needs work.
    What is style that is the question!

    I like to think of style as evolving... LOL

    Fabulous. Especially the one about the frogs.

    Linda, I love the last quote! It could be said of many places.
