Why in the world would Oscar Wilde write The Importance Of Being Earnest? Shouldn't Hemingway have written it?
Geddit, children? Gahahahahahaa!

On a different note, I found this:

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

since you put oscar wilde discussion up.. I'll have to give you some quotes.

β€œβ€œIt's a sorry man who can not invent an Oscar Wilde quote to fit his situation.””
~ Oscar Wilde on making Oscar Wilde quotes

And here are some he used in The Importance of being Earnest:

* "Everyone loves my wiener."

* "A backpack?!"

* "I was going to buy an iPod, but I hated the idea of becoming a silhouette."

* "Napoleon once wanted to have dinner with me. I said: 'Bonnie, you mustn't want that.'"

* "Smith Barney makes their money the old-fashioned way: with torn fishnets, a wig, and sailors on leave."

* "Oscar Wilde, Oscar Wilde, champion of men / Oscar Wilde, Oscar Wilde, with his mighty pen / Feared by the straight, and loved by the gay / Oscar Wilde, Oscar Wilde, Oscar Wilde."
