Looks and Appearance - The Insults of Oscar Wilde

... A dowdy girl, with one of those characteristic British faces, that, once seen are never remembered.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
... A perfect saint amongst women, but so dreadfully dowdy that she reminded me of a badly bound hymn-book.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
... Lady Ruxton, an overdressed woman of forty-seven, with a hooked nose, who was always trying to get herself compromised, but was so peculiarly plain that to her great disappointment no one would ever believe anything against her.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
A really well-made buttonhole is the only link between Art and Nature.
PHRASES AND PHILOSOPHIES FOR THE USE OF THE YOUNG
A woman whose size in gloves is seven and three-quarters never knows much about anything.
AN IDEAL HUSBAND
All beautiful things belong to the same age.
PEN, PENCIL AND POISON
As soon as people are old enough to know better, they don't know anything at all.
LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN
Beauty is the wonder of wonders. It is only the shallow people who do not judge by appearances.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
Fashion is what one wears oneself. What is unfashionable is what other people wear.
AN IDEAL HUSBAND
Hesitation of any kind is a sign of mental decay in the young, of physical weakness in the old.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
How can you see anything in a girl with coarse hands?
VERA, OR THE NIHILISTS
I delight in men over seventy. They always offer one the devotion of a lifetime.
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
I find it harder and harder every day to live up to my blue china.
[WHILE UP AT OXFORD, c. 1877]
I never saw anybody take so long to dress, and with such little result.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
In America, the young are always ready to give to those who are older than themselves the full benefits of their inexperience.
THE AMERICAN INVASION
Lord Illingworth: I was very young at the time. We men know life too early.
Mrs. Arbwhnot: And we women know life too late. That is the difference between men and women.
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
Lord Illingworth: The soul is born old but grows young. That is the comedy of life.
Mrs. Allonby: And the body is born young and grows old. That is life's tragedy.
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
My experience is that as soon as people are old enough to know better, they don't know anything at all.
LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN
Never trust a woman who wears mauve, whatever her age may be, or a woman over thirty-five who is fond of pink ribbons. It always means that they have a history.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
No life is spoiled but one whose growth is arrested.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
No woman should ever be quite accurate about her age. It looks so calculating...
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
Nothing ages like happiness.
AN IDEAL HUSBAND
One can always tell from a woman's bonnet whether she has got a memory or not.
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
One should never trust a woman who tells one her real age. A woman who would tell one that, would tell one anything.
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
Only the great masters of style ever succeed in being obscure.
PHRASES AND PHILOSOPHIES FOR THE USE OF THE YOUNG
She has exquisite feet and hands, is always bien chaussee et bien gantee, and can talk brilliantly upon any subject, provided that she knows nothing about it.
THE AMERICAN INVASION
She is still decolletee... and when she is in a very smart gown she looks like an edition de luxe of a bad French novel.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
She was a curious woman, whose dresses always looked as if they had been designed in a rage and put on in a tempest.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
The old believe everything: the middle-aged suspect everything: the young know everything.
PHRASES AND PHILOSOPHIES FOR THE USE OF THE YOUNG
The only people to whose opinions I listen now with any respect are people much younger than myself.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
The secret of life is never to have an emotion that is unbecoming.
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
The two weak points in our age are its want of principle and its want of profile.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
The youth of the present day are quite monstrous. They have absolutely no respect for dyed hair.
LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN
There is nothing like youth. The middle-aged are mortgaged to Life. The old are in life's lumber-room.
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
There is nothing to my mind more coarse in conception and more vulgar in execution than modern jewellery.
HOUSE DECORATION
Thirty-five is a very attractive age. London society is full of women of the very highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years. Lady Dumbleton is an instance in point. To my own knowledge she has been thirty-five ever since she arrived at the age of forty, which was many years ago now.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
Thy body is hideous. It is like the body of a leper. It is like a plastered wall where vipers have crawled.
SALOME
To get back my youth I-would do anything in the world, except take exercise, get up early, or be respectable.
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
To Lord Arthur it came early in life before his nature had been spoiled by the calculating cynicism of middle-age...
LORD ARTHUR SAVILE'S CRIME
What a pity that in life we only get our lessons when they are of no use to us!
LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN
You're young and wouldn't be ill-favoured either, had God or thy mother given thee another face.
