Be yourself

Quote Oscar Wilde: “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken”.

This irish writer was born in 1854 and died in 1900 in the 3rd french republic and lived during the victorian time. Even though he was married and had two kids, he was gay. At this time, being gay was a crime. So he had to go to prison/ penitentiary and seemed to have never really recovered after that.

One of his works was “The importance of being Earnest”, in which he plays with parallelisms, witt, sarcasm and more. It is an entertaining piece and recommendable. The language may be a bit “oldschool” but still a great read in my opinion.
