I choose my friends for their good looks, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their intellects. A man cannot be too careful in the choice of his enemies.
Oscar Wilde

Other quotes by Oscar Wilde

It is through art, and through art only, that we can realise our perfection.

Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result.

The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast.

One should always play fairly when one has the winning cards.

Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.
