No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.
Oscar Wilde (via kushandwizdom)

When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is.
Oscar Wilde (via kushandwizdom)




From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were — I have not seen
As others saw — I could not bring
My passions from a common spring —
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow — I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone —
And all I lov’d — I lov’d alone.
Edgar Allan Poe (via kushandwizdom)

Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
Aristotle (via kushandwizdom)
