Quote about truth: Oscar Wilde

In Imagination Spark inspiration quotes Uncategorized / Dec 2, 2013

Sometimes, when reading comments on the internet, or tweets, I remember this quote:

Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.

Oscar Wilde

 

Note: I always hear this in Jonathan Rhys-Meyers’ voice ’cause he quotes Oscar Wilde in a film. This same Oscar Wilde quote is used in the film, and it’s also a quote I’ve appreciated since reading The Picture of Dorian Gray as an independent study while I was in college:

 

There were times when it appeared to Dorian Gray that the whole of history was merely the record of his own life, not as he had lived it in act and circumstance, but as his imagination had created it for him, as it had been in his brain and in his passions. He felt that he had known them all, those strange terrible figures that had passed across the stage of the world and made sin so marvelous and evil so full of subtlety. It seemed to him that in some mysterious way their lives had been his own.

-Oscar Wilde

 

If you know the film (I remember the name), comment and I’ll give you a virtual Kudos bar.
