"Nowadays most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one's mistakes." -- Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde was a super star. One of my favourite quotation by him: "To get back one's youth one has merely to repeat one's follies". And more from his poem:"...A moment more, the trees had stooped to kiss Pale Daphne just awakening from the swoon Of tremulous laurels, lonely Salmacis Had bared his barren beauty to the moon, And through the vale with sad voluptuous smile Antinous had wandered, the red lotus of the Nile".
Oscar! O, Scald! The Cult of Antinous was in your heart.

Love from

some lonely laurel that bares its barren beauty to the moon
