I couldn’t pass this one up from Oscar Wilde:
“Be yourself: everyone else is already taken.”
Wilde could have written not only, The Importance of Being Earnest, but The Importance of Being You. And just think, he was jailed for his homosexuality. (Good thing he’s not in Iran today, where he might be hanged for that.)
Coming up soon! An exclusive interview with Tatiana de Rosnay, author of Sarah’s Key. Her latest novel, The Other Story, has just been published by St. Martin’s.
And if that quote still didn’t have you convinced, here’s another one of Wilde’s quotes: “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
