Oscar Wilde

Legendary Irish writer Oscar Wilde was a vibrant figure of late-19th-century society. He was a member of the Aesthetic movement, which upheld “art for art’s sake.” He was known as a finely dressed, decadent, and outspoken man who never tried to blend in with the crowd. Along with famous one-liners like this one, and writing books like "The Portrait of Dorian Gray," he’s well known for satirical plays such as “The Importance of Being Earnest.” Through his comedic works, Wilde mocked the hypocrisies of high society, and let his sharp wit run wild, as it were. He married a woman and became a father, but also had relationships with men, and was famously imprisoned for homosexuality for two years. Wilde lived as his fullest self and openly shared his loves, tastes, and opinions, regardless of what others thought. When we validate and love ourselves, we find we have a true companion for life.
