Every Saint Has a Past.......

My favorite gift this season came from my sister in law. A super cool t-shirt from my FAVORITE boutique in my old stomping ground.
My sister has one and I coveted it.
So my sister-in-law surprised me with it Christmas Eve.
Such a thoughtful gift and SUCH A COOL T-shirt. I have worn it so many times already.
Anyways- the quote is an Oscar Wilde one.
And he has others that equally belong on a t-shirt:

--Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much.

--To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.

--Education is an admirable thing. But it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.

--There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.
--America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between.
--They spoil every romance by trying to make it last forever.
--Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.
--Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.
--Morality, like art, means drawing a line someplace.
I could go on and on.....
I had never read much of Wilde, but have been since investigating this cool quote.
Such an interesting character.....
