Thought of the Day~



“Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot.
In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.”

~ Oscar Wilde
An Irish writer, poet, and prominent aesthete. His parents were successful Dublin intellectuals, and from an early age he was tutored at home, where he showed his intelligence, becoming fluent in French and German. He attended boarding school for six years, then matriculated to university at seventeen years of age. Reading Greats, Wilde proved himself to be an outstanding classicist, first at Trinity College, Dublin, then at Magdalen College, Oxford. His intellectual horizons were broad and he became deeply interested in the rising philosophy of aestheticism, led by two of his tutors Walter Pater and John Ruskin, at the same time profoundly exploring Roman Catholicism.
