Best Love quotes by Oscar Wilde Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood. True love is like a pair of socks: you gotta have two and they've gotta match. Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love: it is the faithless who know love's tragedies. Love is like a booger. You keep picking at it until you get it, then wonder what to do with it. Men always want to be a woman's first love - women like to be a mans last romance To love one's self is the beginning of a life-long romance The only reward for love is the experience of loving. Love is not a clock. You simply cannot take it apart just to see what makes it tick, and even if you could, you probably could never get it back together again. The aim of love is to love: no more, and no less. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring. Yet each man kills the thing he loves from all let this be heard some does it with a bitter look some with a flattering word the coward does it with a kiss the brave man with the sword. When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance. They spoil every romance by trying to make it last forever. A man can be happy with any woman as long as he does not love her Ultimately the bond of all companionship, whether in marriage or in friendship, is conversation. Now it seems to me that love of some kind is the only possible explanation of the extraordinary amount of suffering that there is in the world. When a love comes to an end, weaklings cry, efficient ones instantly find another love, and the wise already have one in reserve. Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship. One should always be in love. That is the reason one should never marry. When a man has once loved a woman he will do anything for her except continue to love her. Nothing spoils a romance so much as a sense of humor in the woman. Women love us for our defects. If we have enough of them, they will forgive us everything, even our gigantic intellects. The mystery of love is greater than the mystery of death. Where there is no extravagance there is no love, and where there is no love there is no understanding. Long engagements give people the opportunity of finding out each other's character before marriage, which is never advisable. I see when men love women. They give them but a little of their lives. But women when they love give everything. There is always something ridiculous about the emotions of people whom one has ceased to love.

10 Heartbreaking Signs You Are In A Loveless Marriage As Oscar Wilde, the master of wit, once said in one of his plays, divorces are made in heaven just like marriages are. As much as we don’t want to believe it, not all marriages end in a fairytale with the couple growing old together happily ever after. Sometimes people and relationships simply fall apart. 1. You are being taken for granted Marriages tend to fall apart when couples take each other for granted and forget that they are still responsible to care for each other’s well-being. It’s not just about going out for a surprise dinner, buying a present, or going for a vacation; it’s also about doing those little things that may seem like small gestures but help keep the marriage alive. 2. You no longer feel important There was a time in your marriage when you supported each other’s dreams and aspirations and encouraged each other to achieve them. But that seems to be long gone; all that is left is empty silences and cold shoulders. 2. Constant criticism, a major relationship destroyer One of the most destructive behaviors in a marriage is when one starts criticizing their partner for every little mistake or reason. By being demeaning, one is trying to prove that they are in a superior position to point out their partner’s defects – real or perceived. 4. Even those fights don’t take place anymore If, as a couple, you have stopped fighting altogether, it is an evident sign that there is a severe lack of love in your marriage. Usually fights are said to be ugly and damaging to the mind and soul, but the fact that you fight obviously means that the two of you care. 5. You quit paying attention Your marriage requires a lot of attention, from your relationship with your spouse to the minute details of running a household. If you have stopped thinking about these things and do not pay that much attention, then your marriage is definitely at stake. 6. You start thinking about how terrific your life used to be before your marriage If there isn’t much left in your marriage to look forward to any more, then these thoughts about escaping it may actually make you feel positive. 7. You are too concerned about the needs of other people There might come a time in your marriage when you start becoming overly caught up in the problems of the people around you. You start getting involved in whatever crisis your family or friends may be facing, so much so that you forget the role that you play in your marriage. 8. You have started to ignore your own instincts There are two distinct voices in you – one of your reasonable mind, and the other of your instinct. If you are living in a loveless marriage, in thinking about your situation you may start to suppress the voice of your instinct to let your logical mind talk. After all, isn’t that why you turned to this list to seek out a logical analysis of your relationship? 9. It is a little too late Every marriage starts with the honeymoon period, when everything was new and unexpected and exciting. Eventually, a routine sets in, which the couple has to follow in order to live a normal, healthy life. The day-to-day becomes familiar and they can’t possibly imagine thinking out of the box. 10. There’s no chance of reviving your relationship If you have already tried everything possible to save your marriage from falling apart, like changing your routine, improving the way you two communicate, couples therapy, or anything of that sort, and your relationship is simply still not happy, I am hereby declare that all Images use to make this video is from Google Search (www.google.com) I use Google Advanced Search to collect those images, usage rights: "free to use, share even commercially.

Download the 'Lehren Android App' - https://goo.gl/m2xNRt The acceptance of the LGBTQ community has come a long way over the years. And here’s a list of famous gay men who were once married to women, all loosely ranked by fame and popularity. After all, isn't it a miracle when any Hollywood romance stands the test of time? And besides, the details of these relationships are far more interesting than the genders of those involved. For example, one of these men had a sexual awakening after a drunken hookup. Another seemingly struggled with his sexuality his whole life, having at one point been out and proud in the mid-'90s, but then renouncing homosexuality as a sin in his older years. These are the male celebs who left their women for men. Several famous men who have come out as gay have been married to women. While some married before they fully recognized that they were gay, others used their marriages to keep their sexuality a secret from the public. From musicians to actors to politicians, love is the same for all. Celebrities like Elton John, Little Richard, Oscar Wilde, Anthony Perkins, Cole Porter, Alan Cumming and many others fall on this list.

Thank you for watching. Have a nice day! My channel: https://goo.gl/vCXdrM ABOUT: Flamboyant, extroverted and witty, Oscar Wilde was one of the great personalities of the Victorian era and someone who had women - and men - falling at his feet.But it was a young lady named 'Hattie' that stole the literary genius' heart while on a trip to America in 1882 and one biographer believes he may finally have uncovered her real identity.Matthew Sturgis, author of Oscar Wilde: A Life, published next month by Head of Zeus, has found documents suggesting the object of his affections is Hattie Crocker, the 23-year-old 'beautiful and rich' daughter of a railroad magnate from San Francisco.In a letter written following a lecture tour of the United States and Canada, Wilde wrote: 'When I think of America I only remember someone whose lips are like the crimson petals of a summer rose, whose eyes are two brown agates, who has the fascination of a panther, the pluck of a tigress, and the grace of a bird.'Darling Hattie, I now realise that I am absolutely in love with you, and for ever and ever…' His extraordinary correspondence, which features in The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde, edited by Merlin Holland and Rupert Hart Davis (2000), first prompted Sturgis to investigate who 'Hattie' might be.'There aren't other letters of that sort to other girls, so that's what made me think it was worth trying to track her down', he told Dalya Alberge for The Observer.Wilde had confided in a friend that he had lost his heart in San Francisco, prompting the author to first look in the city's 1880 census records.Only one 'Hattie' came up, belonging to Hattie Crocker.Further investigation confirmed that Wilde had visited her uncle's art gallery in Sacramento and that her parents, Charles and Mary Crocker, were among the audience at Wilde's first lecture. Sturgis said: 'So it would be very likely that Hattie was there as well.The circumstantial evidence linking the Crockers with Wilde's tour and his stay in San Francisco is so strong.' One flaw in his theory however is that Hattie, as according to her family and a portrait of her by Giovanni Boldini, shows her as having blue eyes rather than brown, a detail that Sturgis puts down to Wilde simply having 'misremebered'.Despite his proclamations of love, Wilde and Hattie's relationship never developed further.She went on to marry financier Charles Beattie Alexander and went on to live in New York and Paris.Meanwhile, Wilde married Constance Lloyd in 1884, fathered two sons and then had an affair with Lord Alfred 'Bosie' Douglas, which led to a conviction for gross indecency.After being imprisoned for two years, he died destitute in Paris, in 1900, aged 46.In 2017, Wilde was among an estimated 50,000 men who were pardoned for homosexual acts that were no longer considered offences under the Policing and Crime Act 2017.The Act is known informally as the Alan Turing law, after the Second World War codebreaker, who was convicted o

Thank you verry much! Oscar Wilde is having something of a resurgence in 2018. Born 164 years ago today, his real-life story continues to resonate for many. Rupert Everett paid tribute to the literary idol earlier this year with The Happy Prince, a biopic that covered the period after Wilde’s imprisonment in Reading Gaol for “gross indecency” in a time when homosexuality was illegal. There have also been three books out about the author and the Vaudeville Theatre in London is holding an Oscar Wilde Season. Even his flashy clothing style is back in fashion. Born on 16 October 1854, in Dublin, Wilde became one of the world’s most prolific writers, producing plays and poetry to essays and fiction. A large number of Wilde’s plays were satirical comedies. Many of his comic dramas ridiculed the Victorian culture, mocking London’s social chain of importance. Drama and tragedy marred Wilde's private life, according to the BBC: “He married Constance Lloyd in 1884 and they had two sons, but in 1891 Wilde began an affair with Lord Alfred Douglas, nicknamed 'Bosie'. In April 1895, Wilde sued Bosie's father, the Marquis of Queensberry, for libel, after the Marquis accused him of being homosexual.” Wilde lost the case and was later arrested and tried for gross indecency, a law that prohibited sexual activity between men, which was not overturned until 1967. He was sentenced to two years of hard labour on 25 May 1895, and went into exile in France upon his release. Wilde “wrote very little during these last years”, and died of meningitis on 30 November 1900 at the age of 46, Biography.com reports. He died something of a tragic figure, the site adds, moving between cheap hotels in Paris with little money. But his legacy remains. “Oscar Wilde did not dive very deeply below the surface of human nature, but found, to a certain extent rightly, that there is more on the surface of life than is seen by the eyes of most people,” wrote contemporary drama critic JT Grein shortly after Wilde’s death. Throughout his career, Wilde was obsessed with aestheticism - “art for art’s sake” - and thus produced some of the most widely quoted literary art today. From The Picture of Dorian Gray to The Importance of Being Earnest, here are some of his best quotes in the gallery above.

Top 10 Oscar Wilde Quotes and Why He Said Them Oscar Wilde was an Irish playwright, poet, writer, and wit who was an integral part of the fin de siècle group of artists who made up the Aesthetic movement of the late nineteenth century. As a young man, he attended Trinity College in Dublin, and then applied for, and won, a demyship at Magdalen College at Oxford University. There, he became a freemason, even though he was fascinated with Catholicism. It was at Magdalen College that Wilde came into his own, reading, writing, wearing his hair long, and refusing to conform to social norms. He decorated his rooms lavishly and entertained visitors almost daily. Text version: http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-quotes-by-oscar-wilde.php Coming up: 10. "A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal." 9. "The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it." 8. "All great ideas are dangerous." 7. "If you pretend to be good, the world takes you very seriously. If you pretend to be bad, it doesn't. Such is the astounding stupidity of optimism." 6. "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." 5. "Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all." 4. "If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you." 3. "To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance." 2. "The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything, except what is worth knowing." 1. "My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or the other of us has to go."

Hughie is handsome, charming and popular but he has been very unlucky as far as financial matters are concerned. He was left nothing of any great value in his father's will. He has tried his hand at several different businesses, all of which have failed. Having no job, Hughie's only source of income is two hundred pounds a year which is given to him by an elderly aunt. Hughie has fallen in love with a young woman named Laura Merton and she loves him in return. Laura's father, Colonel Merton, is fond of Hughie but, due to his poor financial prospects, he does not want the young man to marry his daughter. He has often told Hughie that he will only allow him to get engaged to Laura after he has earned ten thousand pounds. Hughie goes to see his artist friend Alan Trevor. He finds that Alan is painting a portrait of an old man who appears to be a beggar. The old man is wearing a tattered brown cloak and boots which have been mended many times. He has a rough walking stick in one hand. In the other hand, he is holding out an old hat as if to ask for money. His face is heavily wrinkled and he looks extremely sad. Both Alan and Hughie agree that the old man is an excellent subject for a painting. Hughie, however, cannot help feeling sorry for the man. He thinks it is unfair that, although Alan's paintings regularly sell for two thousand guineas, he only pays his models one shilling an hour to pose for him and does not give them a percentage of the money which he makes from sales of their portraits. When Alan leaves the room, Hughie looks in his pockets. He finds that the highest denomination coin which he has is a sovereign. Although it means that he will have to economize more than usual for the rest of the month, Hughie gives the coin to the old man, who appears very happy to receive it. Hughie leaves soon afterwards. Alan and Hughie meet up again later. The artist tells his friend that, after he left, the old man asked several questions about him. Alan goes on to say that he told the old man all about Hughie, Laura Merton and the condition which Colonel Merton set that prevents their marriage. Hughie is unhappy that his friend told "that old beggar" all about his private life. The amused Alan tells Hughie that the old man he was painting was Baron Hausberg, one of the wealthiest men in Europe and someone who often buys Alan's paintings. For reasons which Alan does not really understand, the millionaire baron had asked to be painted as a beggar. The tattered clothes he was wearing were supplied by Alan. Hughie feels ashamed about having given a coin to a millionaire, although Alan tells him not to worry. The following day, a representative of Baron Hausberg comes to Hughie's house with an envelope. The writing on the envelope says that it contains a wedding present "from an old beggar". Inside the envelope, Hughie finds a check for ten thousand pounds. Hughie and Laura get married. Baron Hausberg attends their wedding.

Can a man express his sexuality any way he wants? Oscar Wilde, the great wit, would have preferred a sexually liberated society. Jesus Christ also spoke of freedom, but was it really sexual freedom that he hinted at? Would Jesus have encouraged Man to depart from the model of sexuality designed by God?

Best quotes if you are ready to get married - by Raymond Hull, John Wilmot, Voltaire, Katharine Hepburn, Frances Conroy, Michel de Montaigne, Joyce Brothers, Marina Abramovic, Oscar Wilde, Gene Simmons, Warren Farrell. • All marriages are happy. It's the living together afterward that causes all the trouble. -- Raymond Hull • Before I got married I had six theories about raising children; now, I have six children and no theories. -- John Wilmot • God created sex. Priests created marriage. -- Voltaire • Marriage is a series of desperate arguments people feel passionately about. -- Katharine Hepburn • Marriage is an exercise in torture. Frances Conroy • Marriage is like a cage; one sees the birds outside desperate to get in, and those inside equally desperate to get out. -- Michel de Montaigne • Marriage is not just spiritual communion, it is also remembering to take out the trash. -- Joyce Brothers • My mother and father had a terrible marriage. They celebrated their wedding anniversary one year with their friends. Why did they celebrate? Maybe because they had lasted so many years without killing each other. -- Marina Abramovic • Never marry at all, Dorian. Men marry because they are tired, women, because they are curious: both are disappointed. -- Oscar Wilde • The biggest financial pitfall in life is divorce. And the biggest reason for divorce is marriage. -- Gene Simmons • When women hold off from marrying men, we call it independence. When men hold off from marrying women, we call it fear of commitment. -- Warren Farrell ----------------------------------------------------------------- This channel presents only the best quotes for various subjects or topics.

Picture of Dorian Gray - British Reading - Chapter 1 - Oscar Wilde - ESL British English Pronunciation Listen to me reading the classic British novel "The Picture Of Dorian Gray". The text is on-screen and there are subtitles so you can read along with me. I have a received pronunciation voice so you can listen to the audiobook The Picture of Dorrian Gray in a British accent. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde CHAPTER 1 The studio was filled with the rich odour of roses, and when the light summer wind stirred amidst the trees of the garden, there came through the open door the heavy scent of the lilac, or the more delicate perfume of the pink-flowering thorn. From the corner of the divan of Persian saddle-bags on which he was lying, smoking, as was his custom, innumerable cigarettes, Lord Henry Wotton could just catch the gleam of the honey-sweet and honey-coloured blossoms of a laburnum, whose tremulous branches seemed hardly able to bear the burden of a beauty so flamelike as theirs; and now and then the fantastic shadows of birds in flight flitted across the long tussore-silk curtains that were stretched in front of the huge window, producing a kind of momentary Japanese effect, and making him think of those pallid, jade-faced painters of Tokyo who, through the medium of an art that is necessarily immobile, seek to convey the sense of swiftness and motion. The sullen murmur of the bees shouldering their way through the long unmown grass, or circling with monotonous insistence round the dusty gilt horns of the straggling woodbine, seemed to make the stillness more oppressive. The dim roar of London was like the bourdon note of a distant organ. In the centre of the room, clamped to an upright easel, stood the full-length portrait of a young man of extraordinary personal beauty, and in front of it, some little distance away, was sitting the artist himself, Basil Hallward, whose sudden disappearance some years ago caused, at the time, such public excitement and gave rise to so many strange conjectures. As the painter looked at the gracious and comely form he had so skilfully mirrored in his art, a smile of pleasure passed across his face, and seemed about to linger there. But he suddenly started up, and closing his eyes, placed his fingers upon the lids, as though he sought to imprison within his brain some curious dream from which he feared he might awake. "It is your best work, Basil, the best thing you have ever done," said Lord Henry languidly. "You must certainly send it next year to the Grosvenor. The Academy is too large and too vulgar. Whenever I have gone there, there have been either so many people that I have not been able to see the pictures, which was dreadful, or so many pictures that I have not been able to see the people, which was worse. The Grosvenor is really the only place." "I don't think I shall send it anywhere," he answered, tossing his head back in that odd way that used to make his friends laugh at him at Oxford. "No, I won't send it anywhere." http://www.iswearenglish.com/ https://www.facebook.com/iswearenglish https://twitter.com/iswearenglish

Oscar Wilde (16 October 1854 -- 30 November 1900) was an Irish writer and poet. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Today he is remembered for his epigrams, plays and the circumstances of his imprisonment, followed by his early death. Wilde's parents were successful Dublin intellectuals, and their son showed his intelligence early by becoming fluent in French and German. At university Wilde read Greats; he proved himself to be an outstanding classicist, first at Dublin, then at Oxford. He became known for his involvement in the rising philosophy of aestheticism (led by two of his tutors, Walter Pater and John Ruskin), though he also profoundly explored Roman Catholicism, to which he would later convert on his deathbed. After university, Wilde moved to London into fashionable cultural and social circles. As a spokesman for aestheticism, he tried his hand at various literary activities: he published a book of poems, lectured in the United States of America and Canada on the new "English Renaissance in Art", and then returned to London where he worked prolifically as a journalist. Known for his biting wit, flamboyant dress, and glittering conversation, Wilde had become one of the most well-known personalities of his day. At the turn of the 1890s, he refined his ideas about the supremacy of art in a series of dialogues and essays, and incorporated themes of decadence, duplicity, and beauty into his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890). The opportunity to construct aesthetic details precisely, and combine them with larger social themes, drew Wilde to write drama. He wrote Salome (1891) in French in Paris but it was refused a licence. Unperturbed, Wilde produced four society comedies in the early 1890s, which made him one of the most successful playwrights of late Victorian London. At the height of his fame and success, whilst his masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest (1895), was still on stage in London, Wilde sued his lover's father for libel. After a series of trials, Wilde was convicted of gross indecency with other men and imprisoned for two years, held to hard labour. In prison he wrote De Profundis, a long letter which discusses his spiritual journey through his trials, forming a dark counterpoint to his earlier philosophy of pleasure. Upon his release he left immediately for France, never to return to Ireland or Britain. There he wrote his last work, The Ballad of Reading Gaol, a long poem commemorating the harsh rhythms of prison life. He died destitute in Paris at the age of forty-six. Oscar Wilde was born at 21 Westland Row, Dublin (now home of the Oscar Wilde Centre, Trinity College, Dublin) the second of three children born to Sir William Wilde and Jane Francesca Wilde, two years behind William ("Willie"). Jane Wilde, under the pseudonym "Speranza" (the Italian word for 'Hope'), wrote poetry for the revolutionary Young Irelanders in 1848 and was a life-long Irish nationalist. She read the Young Irelanders' poetry to Oscar and Willie, inculcating a love of these poets in her sons. Lady Wilde's interest in the neo-classical revival showed in the paintings and busts of ancient Greece and Rome in her home. William Wilde was Ireland's leading oto-ophthalmologic (ear and eye) surgeon and was knighted in 1864 for his services as medical adviser and assistant commissioner to the censuses of Ireland. He also wrote books about Irish archaeology and peasant folklore. A renowned philanthropist, his dispensary for the care of the city's poor at the rear of Trinity College, Dublin, was the forerunner of the Dublin Eye and Ear Hospital, now located at Adelaide Road. In addition to his children with his wife, Sir William Wilde was the father of three children born out of wedlock before his marriage: Henry Wilson, born in 1838, and Emily and Mary Wilde, born in 1847 and 1849, respectively, of different parentage to Henry. Sir William acknowledged paternity of his illegitimate children and provided for their education, but they were reared by his relatives rather than with his wife and legitimate children. In 1855, the family moved to No. 1 Merrion Square, where Wilde's sister, Isola, was born the following year. The Wildes' new home was larger and, with both his parents' sociality and success soon became a "unique medical and cultural milieu"; guests at their salon included Sheridan le Fanu, Charles Lever, George Petrie, Isaac Butt, William Rowan Hamilton and Samuel Ferguson. Until he was nine, Oscar Wilde was educated at home, where a French bonne and a German governess taught him their languages. He then attended Portora Royal School in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh. Until his early twenties, Wilde summered at the villa his father built in Moytura, County Mayo. There the young Wilde and his brother Willie played with George Moore.

Check out my Online Book Club and other awesome learning opportunities for you at: http://audreyrindlisbacher.com/! A masterpiece of nonsense literature The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde is HILARIOUS! Two men, Jack and Algernon, assume the name Ernest in order to win the women they love but when their secret is found out, it puts their relationships in jeopardy. A social parody, mocking high society, shallowness, wealth and position, this play makes important moral statements while keeping the audience in stitches. As part of the movement of "Art for Art's Sake," Wilde takes most of what is truly valuable and labels it 'boring' while leaving us with nothing valuable to replace it with--family, education, marriage and work are all represented as being trivial and unimportant. Yet, we are not truly sure what Wilde would have us value instead. And that was precisely his point: Art has no obligation to teach or uphold the values or morals of society. But here Wilde made his gravest mistake because art can never be valueless. And in the 20th century attempt to remove traditional morality from the arts which followed his "Art for Art's Sake" movement, we have simply replaced it with a new morality of tolerance and relativism. An extremely important and pivotal work, The Importance of Being Earnest will first entertain you, then it will make you think.

Audiobook full length. Lady Windermere's Fan, A Play About a Good Woman is a four-act comedy by Oscar Wilde, first produced 22 February 1892 at the St James's Theatre in London. The play was first published in 1893. Like many of Wilde's comedies, it bitingly satirizes the morals of Victorian society, particularly marriage. The story concerns Lady Windermere, who discovers that her husband may be having an affair with another woman. She confronts her husband but he instead invites the other woman, Mrs Erlynne, to his wife's birthday ball. Angered by her husband's unfaithfulness, Lady Windermere leaves her husband for another lover. Or does she? Is it really possible to trust delicious gossip? Are all men really bad? These and many other questions are raised and if not answered, then held up for public scrutiny in this biting satire of morals and proper behavior. The best known line of the play sums up the central theme: We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars. 00:00:00.000 : 01 - ACT I 00:39:56.019 : 02 - ACT II 01:21:08.021 : 03 - ACT III 01:55:37.001 : 04 - ACT IV Audiobook in the public domain English audio books playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZmLAWS_elMr-R9RQCpQNxs95SH_XSnNV German audio books playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZmLAWS_elMp2nGzKlMi1ibO_L5HtBR3J French audio books playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZmLAWS_elMqEBaoW7ZgEQ1szlSYPzbF- Spanish audio books playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZmLAWS_elMondrW0mkksUiIROcxPcwGV Dutch audio books playlisthttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZmLAWS_elMqYUKL_ZsnxRShg72eKWBXO Russian audio books playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZmLAWS_elMpUnwvrPYwuBKZh6_UnNAMr Finnish audio books playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZmLAWS_elMoXQI1fQVu6rIjT3d9JlYCi Japanese audio books playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZmLAWS_elMoGrPEoMUYQE_vKZBQ8gGu_ Portuguese audio books playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZmLAWS_elMog4TUM0b6NgruFqA9HmHlq

She tells him that he can only marry her if he sends away his soul. From a Witch, the Fisherman learns how to send his soul away. The Soul makes several attempts to persuade the Fisherman to take him back, eventually convincing him to do so with the tale of a beautiful dancer who lives nearby. Too late does the Fisherman discover that the soul which he sent out into the world without a heart has become evil. So be careful what you set your heart on.

I can't be bothered to find the comment. sowwy. "Never marry at all, Dorian. Men marry because they are tired: women, because they are curious; both are disappointed." "...the people who love only once in their lives are really the shallow people. What they call their loyalty, and their fidelity, I call either the lethargy of custom or their lack of imagination. Faithfulness is to the emotional life what consistency is to the life of intellect-simple a confession of failure!" "People are very fond of giving away what they need the most themselves. It is what I call the depth of generosity."

The Picture of Dorian Gray is the only published novel by Oscar Wilde. The novel tells of a young man named Dorian Gray, the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Basil is impressed by Dorian's beauty and becomes infatuated with him, believing his beauty is responsible for a new mode in his art. Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, a friend of Basil's, and becomes enthralled by Lord Henry's world view. Espousing a new hedonism, Lord Henry suggests the only things worth pursuing in life are beauty and fulfillment of the senses. Realizing that one day his beauty will fade, Dorian (whimsically) expresses a desire to sell his soul to ensure the portrait Basil has painted would age rather than himself. Dorian's wish is fulfilled, plunging him into debauched acts. The portrait serves as a reminder of the effect each act has upon his soul, with each sin displayed as a disfigurement of his form, or through a sign of aging. The Picture of Dorian Gray is considered a work of classic gothic fiction with a strong Faustian theme.

00:00:00 Act 1. 00:43:53 Act 2. 01:36:33 Act 3. The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde. First performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James's Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways.

In the UK during my lifetime, thousands of men were tried under a ridiculous law called 'Gross Indecency'. All that was needed was for the Police to know that you were gay. Although it has now been abolished, whilst it was in use it claimed many victims, including Oscar Wilde and Alan Turing.
