Prompt #77 “Quotes by Oscar Wilde”

Oscar Wilde

For today’s prompt choose a quote from Oscar Wilde for your inspiration. I have a few quotes listed below but you are not limited to these so feel free to use your own favorites. Oscar Wilde is known for his witty and thought-provoking quotes so try to include an element of humor/sarcasm/absurdity into your work. Illustrate the moral of your chosen quote through art, a play, a song, a poem, a story, a filmed skit/monologue etc.

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

“A good friend will always stab you in the front.”

“I am not young enough to know everything.”

“Never love anyone who treats you like you’re ordinary.”

“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.”

“A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything, and the value of nothing.”


  1. “Never love anyone who treats you like your ordinary,” said Mr. Wilde, as he clipped the fancy bows to his shoes. “One must stand out from the crowd. Besides, aside from my looks and layered clotting, I like bows. Bows draw attention to one’s shoes, after all, and that definitely makes me less ordinary.”
