Ask any bookworm and they’ll be able to rattle off dozens of things they’ve learnt from their favourite reads. To Kill a Mockingbird taught us that everyone deserves to be treated equally. Pride and Prejudice taught us not to make snap judgements about people. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy taught us the answer to the meaning of life, the universe, and everything was 42.
But they’ve got nothing on Oscar Wilde. A new book has distilled his many works into bite-sized pieces of wisdom that will change the way you see the world. Flick through the gallery above as we take a look at some of his best quotes.
Oscar Wilde on Life, Love and Money, New Holland Publishers RRP $19.99 available from all good bookstores or online.
