Author of the Month: Oscar Wilde

b6c4fe83eea72f0194b45580fa12ab5dMany people know the classic writer Oscar Wilde so an introduction is absolutely unnecessary. I was lucky enough to acquire an excerpt of his Nothing…Except my Genius, which Penguin Classics had bound into Only Dull People are Brilliant at Breakfast. For the whole month of March, his genius will be featured every Thursday for Author of the Week.

私はあなたが好きなだけ半分を知らない。私はあなたの半分以下、半分以下が好きです

I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

Teacher: You bought a house when you were 28?
Student:  Yes?
Teacher: How?
Student: I think I was just lucky. I found the right company, had the right job, met the right people, and earned good money.
Teacher: Hang on. I am 28 and I haven’t bought my own house. Does that mean, I’m not in the right company, this is not the right job, they are not the right people?!
Student:
