More information

In 1894, Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900) published two collections of aphorisms: "A Few Maxims For The Instruction Of The Over-Educated", in the Saturday Review newspaper, and Phrases and Philosophies for the Use of the Young", in the Oxford student magazine The Chameleon. By turns witty, intellectual, counter-intuitive and obtruse, the collections came to be seen by many as emblematic of Wilde's style, and countless collections of Wildean aphorisms have since been published.
