"It is a wound that bleeds when any hand but that of love touches it, and even then must bleed again, though not in pain."

So many parts of this book I marked as favourites, but I think that this one might be the one I liked the best. ??❤️?????#oscarwilde #nonfic #sorrow

Started reading this little gem, and so far I'm really enjoying it. It's a very honest and touching insight into this extraoridnary man's mind.#oscarwilde #nonfic 📚📚💘

WHOA, Lordy. This is Oscar Wilde‘s last prose piece, written in jail before his death. And it‘s an absolutely SCATHING break up letter to the man who helped send him there so far.

It‘s breaking my heart though because these feelings are real and relatable and in true Wilde fashion, said with a finely sharpened edge.

Thankful I‘m not living in a place where same sex love equals jail right now.

‪Because today is today I am going to go ahead and recommend you the reading of one of the best books I ever read. "De profundis" by Oscar Wilde‬. I read it when I was too young to understand many things yet. Reading this book when you are young open doors and worlds. Re reading them after years, it is compulsory. It feels different, still great.

Faibka I‘ve never heard of it, will have to look it up! 2y

Hey, it's Oscar. This was in today's guardian.

Lacythebookworm This is an interesting list. I browsed through it the other day. Some of the choices were surprising! 😊 3y

Another good one from one of my favorite works, in anticipation of my upcoming return to my beloved Europe. My life wouldn't be the adventure that it is without my voracious passion for travel. I've always felt that good old Wilde would have been my literary best friend--the eccentric, beautiful, and misunderstood aesthete ♡

Suffering is one very long moment. We cannot divide it by seasons. We can only record its moods, and chronicle their return. With us time itself does not progress. It revolves. It seems to circle round one centre of pain.

Leniverse Are you feeling alright today? Just posting quote after quote on depression and suffering as per association, or is it National Depression Awareness Day or something? 3y
jdtchicago @Leniverse I'm good. Thanks for asking. On to a new theme today! 3y
