Oscar Wilde on fashion, etc.

Oscar Wilde quotes. Like this: "And, after all, what is a fashion? From the artistic point of view, it is usually a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months." Or: "Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast." I like people who did standup before standup was a thing.

I, unfortunately, came after stand-up was "a thing." I would still be here if stand-up wasn't a thing. Time will sort those who mean it from those who don't.
