Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

I tell you, Dorian, that it is on things like these that our lives depend. Browning writes about that somewhere; but our own senses will imagine them for us. There are moments when the odour of lilas blanc passes suddenly across me, and I have to live the strangest month of my life over again. — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

The great events of life often leave one unmoved; they pass out of consciousness, and, when thinks of them, become unreal. Even the scarlet flowers of passion seem to grow in the same meadow as the poppies of oblivion. We reject the burden of their memory, and have anodynes against them. But the little things, the things of no moment, remain with us. In some tiny ivory cell the brain stores the most delicate, and the most fleeting impressions. — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Debasish Mridha

In the summer, we create memories of hot adventures so that those memories can warm-up the deep frozen winter. — Debasish Mridha

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

Sometime you will find, even as I have found, that there is no such thing as romantic experience; there are romantic memories, and there is the desire of romance- that is all. Our most fiery moments of ecstasy are merely shadows of what somewhere else we have felt, or of what we long someday to feel — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

Perhaps there may come into my art also, no less than into my life, a still deeper note, one of greater unity of passion, and directness of impulse. Not width but intensity is the true aim of modern art. We are no longer in art concerned with the type. It is with the exception that we have to do. I cannot put my sufferings into any form they took, I need hardly say. Art only begins where Imitation ends, but something must come into my work, of fuller memory of words perhaps, of richer cadences, of more curious effects, of simpler architectural order, of some aesthetic quality at any rate. — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

ALGERNON. I really don't see anything romantic in proposing. It is very romantic to be in love. But there is nothing romantic about a definite proposal. Why, one may be accepted. One usually is, I believe. Then the excitement is all over. The very essence of romance is uncertainty. If ever I get married, I'll certainly try to forget the fact.
JACK. I have no doubt about that, dear Algy. The Divorce Court was specially invented for people whose memories are so curiously constituted.
ALGERNON. Oh! there is no use speculating on that subject. Divorces are made in Heaven- ... — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

The man with a clear conscience probably has a poor memory. — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

Memory is the diary we all carry about with us. — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

The beautiful, passionate, ruined South, the land of magnolias and music, of roses and romance ... living on the memory of crushing defeats — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

For you, at least, are young; 'no hungry generations tread you down,' and the past does not weary you with the intolerable burden of its memories nor mock you with the ruins of a beauty, the secret of whose creation you have lost. That very absence of tradition, which Mr. Ruskin thought would rob your rivers of their laughter and your flowers of their light, may be rather the source of your freedom and your strength. — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

Memory, like a horrible malady, was eating his soul away — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

Life is a question of nerves, and fibres, and slowly built-up cells in which thought hides itself and passion has its dreams. You may fancy yourself safe and think yourself strong. But a chance tone of colour in a room or a morning sky, a particular perfume that you had once loved and that brings subtle memories with it, a line from a forgotten poem that you had come across again, a cadence from a piece of music that you had ceased to play ... I tell you, that it is on things like these that our lives depend. — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

I dislike modern memoirs. They are generally written by people who have either entirely lost their memories, or have never done anything worth remembering. — Oscar Wilde

Memories Oscar Wilde Quotes By Oscar Wilde

If a man needs an elaborate tombstone in order to remain in the memory of his country, it is clear that his living at all was an act of absolute superfluity. — Oscar Wilde
