Why I want to marry Oscar Wilde (Reason # 572)

"There is a luxury in self reproach. When we blame ourselves we feel that no one else has a right to blame us. It is the confession, not the priest, that gives us absolution."

"Modern morality consisting in accepting the standard of one's age. I consider that for any man of culture to accept the standard of his age is a form of the grossest immorality."

"You come down here to console me. That is charming of you. You find me consoled and you are furious.How like a sympathetic person!"

"One can always be kind to people about whom one cares nothing."

The last one, especially, kills me everytime I read it.
