“Nowadays most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one’s mistakes.”
- Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Grey
Oscar Wilde. Was there ever a wittier person? Even on his death bed he famously said, ”My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One of us has got to go.”
I like this quote because I am chronically and habitually sensible. Oscar Wilde reminds me to take some risks and live a little.
