It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and rebellion. ~ Oscar Wilde

#GratefulReads #FavoriteAuthor I have several favorite authors, but Oscar Wilde is at the top of that list.

Minimalgrl Love Oscar Wilde !!!🥰🥰🥰 3y
Fridameetslucy Look at the inscription Wilde write in a book that Walt Whitman also inscribed - i posted it. Wilde is plain out hot ! 3y
veritysalter I love his work - Lord Arthur Saville‘s Crime, got my husband into theatre. The Happy Prince makes me cry; but my ultimate favourite is The Canterville Ghost, so funny and sad, a beautiful story. 3y

Mishu94 The only book I have read by him is the picture of Dorian gray! I‘d love to read more of his work but I don‘t really know what to go on with! 3y
CoffeeNBooks @Mishu94 The Importance of Being Earnest is one of his plays, and it's great! 3y
Mishu94 @CoffeeNBooks I‘ll check it out! Thank you! 😌 3y
CoffeeNBooks @Mishu94 There's also a great movie version of it with Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth, and Rupert Everett. 3y
Mishu94 @CoffeeNBooks Ooo I didn‘t know! I‘ll check it out for sure! 3y

Yes, poor people know how to stretch a dollar. What I‘d like to see more of are ways to combat food deserts, make healthier meals on a strict diet, and an understanding that, no, not everyone can afford organic bananas. Also, we could do a lot more with food waste and encouraging stores to sell less than visibly appealing food. #thrifty #Quotsy #QuotsyAug18 #LitsyQuoteChallenge

Saw this at the grocery last night and thought nobody would appreciate it more than you Littens. 😂

laurieluna That quote. I'm positive it was written about cheese! 😂 5y
Kaye That‘s an odd one. Why use him for a cheese 🧀? I bet at least 90 % of the shoppers had no clue who he was. They probably think he‘s some dude from Wisconsin who makes cheese and put his own picture on it. (edited) 5y

Today's author spotlight: Oscar (Fingal O'Flahertie Wills) Wilde! Born in Dublin, he died at 46 in 1900 in Paris in destitution. He was one of his day's best-known personalities. He had works prohibited in England, & he was imprisoned for gross indecency after he had the Marquess of Queensberry--his lover's, Lord Douglas's, father--prosecuted for libel. His tomb gets covered in lipstick marks by his admirers. #AuthorPotpourri #TheMoreYouKnow

Kaye I think he‘s quite a handsome young fellow. A life too short. 5y

merelybookish @vivastory It's such a good title. And maybe kind of true? 😬 (speaking as a 🌃 🦉 here.) 5y

In stressful weeks (let's be real, months??) like this one I know many of us are going to shut off the news and retreat into books. Let's!! I'm exhausted. Enjoy the weekend Littens, you made it! 💗

Tonight I put my feet up, grab a glass of cold beer, a warm pup, and a long book. 🤘🏻🍺🐶📖☺️

"With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?" Oscar Wilde ? .

I think this pretty much sums it up...we all live in such a materialistic world, fast paced, full of demands and deadlines, being pulled here and there...Deep breath, remember whats really important, sometimes the most simplest pleasures are the most worthwhile...spread some smiles ?
