“Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”

Oscar Wilde

With society focused on telling us to be like others … let’s not forget to be ourselves. We are all individuals so let’s own it!

Oscar Wilde, born on October 16, 1854, was an Irish playwright, poet, and author known for his wit, cleverness, and profound wisdom. His works, such as “The Picture of Dorian Gray” and “The Importance of Being Earnest,” are rich with insightful observations about human nature and society. Wilde’s wisdom lay in his ability to use satire and humor to expose the hypocrisy of Victorian society, challenging conventional norms and values. He emphasized the importance of individualism and authenticity, stating, “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” Through his writings, Wilde imparted timeless wisdom on the complexities of love, beauty, and the human condition. His legacy as a cultural icon continues to inspire generations, encouraging us to embrace our true selves, question societal norms, and live life with wit, charm, and intellectual curiosity.
