Happy Birthday

Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin, Ireland on this day in 1854.
“It is silly of you, for there is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.”
–from THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY (1890)
Can you imagine that poor man doing hard time in a 19th century prison? That poor, suffering man. No wonder when he returned to public life, having served his time, he was described as ruined. A wreck of a man in a ruined body. But of course Oscar suffered through it, dressed himself back up, and refused to hide. Endurance. Perhaps the greatest strength is to endure.
