Wilde says the darnest things

“There are many things that we would throw away if we were not afraid that others might pick them up.”
~ Oscar Wilde (in The Picture of Dorian Gray)

Dont we wonder about this all the time..
when will it be that I'll make a decision not because someone told me to, but because I wanted to...

Honestly Wilde :)

"There is a luxury in self reproach.
When we blame ourselves we feel that no one else has the right to blame us"
~ Oscar Wilde (in The Picture of Dorian Gray)

I am yet to find an author who is as blatantly honest as Oscar Wilde.
Ironically, it is these pieces of truth in his writing that appear to us as satire/wit.

Another Arbid thought

Sannata Sunai Nahin Deta, 
Aur Hawayen Dikhayi Nahin Deti
Socha Hai Kya Kabhi, Hota Hai Yeh Kyun..

These are the lyrics of a song from Rock On!
What caught my attention is actually what the lyricist is trying to point out..

It rings a bell when he says that we try and give a name to everything.. even things we cannot see..
