Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde
We go to cemeteries
(and museums and so many other places in Paris)
because we are curious
We come across half-familiar names Moliere, Voltaire, Delecroix, Louis VIX (the Sun King)
and Oscar Wilde
Who is he?
We have heard of his books
We have heard of his movies
He has one of the most popular gravesites
at one of the world’s most popular cemeteries
Until they installed a “sneeze-guard” around his grave-site
his tombstone was covered with lipstick kisses
Who is Oscar Wilde?
“Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes”
“The only difference between a saint and a sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future”
