Still a dreamer…Old Memories and New Hopes

& more Oscar Wilde

“Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”…..”The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything, except what is worth knowing.”…..”No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.”…..”Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.”….. “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”…..”I adore simple pleasures; they are the last refuge of the complex.”

  1. I am so glad you included the first remark with those related to art, since it rings so true in the art market today.

    • ….and I am so glad that you took the time to comment. I thank you again for the wonderful Oscar Wilde book. A film I strongly recommend,has the two quotes that I love and blogged about last week. Cutie and the Boxer about two artists whose marriage became part of their work of art.

  2. You are most welcome. Did you know that when Wilde said that he adored simple pleasures, he also made a comment that his taste as well was very simple, that he only liked the very best. Often what seems simple is very complex.
    I will try to see the movie, thanks for bringing it to our attention.

  3. Thank you, I wasn’t aware of that statement he made. It is true because I think simplicity can be so easy to attain…..if no complications. A bit of an oxymoron. Hope to see you in Sept. Always look forward to your comments. Now I’m spending so much time on The Land of Twitter.

  4. This site was… how do I say it? Relevant!! Finally I have found something that helped me.

  5. Can I simply say what a comfort to discover somebody that really understands
    what they are discussing on the net. You actually
    know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people have to read this and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you aren’t more popular given that you definitely possess the gift.

  6. I think the admin of this site is really working hard in favor of his website,
    as here every stuff is quality based material.
