tearfully I did it.Book 3 of BookTube a thon is complete Prompt Read an entire book outside.I literally hated every second of it The being outside, not the book Nature is the worst I got quite truly eaten alive by bugs, and I m of the firm belief that if you get bitten by something then you should turn into something cool When you get bitten by a vampire, you become a vampire. When you get bitten by a radioactive exotic spider in a lab, because the spider escaped its cage prison even though the 1 priority of the scientists who work there should be to keep that spooky lil thing in its cage, ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE IS A FIELD TRIP IN THE VERY SAME ROOM, you become Spiderman.The only change I ve noticed is I m itchy At least now I m indoors, thank God.Things that made it an easier task this book is straight up 52 pages long Oscar Wilde has some great somewhat anti nature quotes, includingMy own experience is that the we study art, the less we care for natureArt is our spirited protest, our gallant attempt to teach Nature her proper placethat made me feel awesome while participating in the very art centric activity of reading a book of Oscar Wilde quotes.Anyway This book is great, it has the best title of all time I honestly bought it for the title and I m so excited to get workin on my Complete Works of Oscar Wilde collection now.I probably won t do it for 18 months, but still.This guy is very quotable and I very much enjoyed reading this There were a few quotes that made me feel, like, How did this get in here But for the most part it is great.Bottom line Very fun and quick and impressive and short and beautiful But also I can t give 5 stars to a book of quotes I will leave you with a quote that made me laugh out loud Oh, it is indeed a burning shame that there would be one law for men and another law for women I think that there should be no law for anybody Attempting to complete the Read an entire book outside prompt for BookTube a thon.I m having a bad time. I love Oscar Wilde I thought this would be a short story but it s just full of quotes and quips, which were delightful He s such a drama queen Like if Oscar Wilde had Twitter. Pure genius This is something you should read again and again throughout your life. My grandmother had several hilarious sayings that she would trot out whenever appropriate e.g., I can resist anything but temptation Nobody has as much fun as people I always thought she was one of the funniest people on earth and then found out she had mostly cribbed her best shots from Oscar Wilde This little black book is a collection of his bon mots, a good reference work if you wish to appear witty and perceptive until somebody else gets hold of the book in which case you ll be so busted Like my grandmother. Delightful Oscar Wilde was as opinionated as they come, but he had a sense of humor Find reviews and bookish fun at Brilliant selection My long time favourite Wilde quote The only way to atone for being occasionally a little over dressed is by being always absolutely over educated And of course Be yourself everyone else is already taken I can go on and on. I d have preferred to read one of Wilde s short stories than simply a book of his quotes He s certainly a wise and thoughtful man, with an overwhelming passion for art He also comes across as quite arrogant at times, though While it s impossible to deny his brilliance, there are moments when you begin to wonder if it is necessary for him to be so pessimisticall the time This was a quick read, and not entirely awful, but it s by no means the best that the Little Black Classics collection has to offer. It Would Be Unfair To Expect Other People To Be As Remarkable As OneselfWilde S Celebrated Witticisms On The Dangers Of Sincerity, Duplicitous Biographers, The Stupidity Of The English And His Own Genius One Of New Books In The Bestselling Little Black Classics Series, To Celebrate The First Ever Penguin Classic In Each Book Gives Readers A Taste Of The Classics Huge Range And Diversity, With Works From Around The World And Across The Centuries Including Fables, Decadence, Heartbreak, Tall Tales, Satire, Ghosts, Battles And Elephants A delightfully hateful blend of wit and arrogance.It would be unfair to expect other people to be as remarkable as oneself Art only begins where imitation ends As with personality How marriage ruins a man It s as demoralizing as cigarettes, and far expensive Demoralizing Right back atcha, buddy I wonder who it was defined man as a rational animal It was the most premature definition ever given Man is many things, but he is not rational One is tempted to define man as a rational animal who always loses his temper when he is called upon to act in accordance with the dictates of reason Jan 31, 18 Actual rating 3.5 stars Later on my blog.
