Oscar Wilde

Today I'm going to fittingly end my recent epigrammatic rampage with a quote from Oscar Wilde. Wilde said something which indicates that life can be all clich?s, a series of sayings, a string of adages, a mountain of witticisms. Wilde is famous for his use of these. He once said: "Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation." This is partially true, but it depends on who we want to be like. If one lives by the Vedas and their truths are made our own there is nothing but benefit. But we always follow in the footsteps (mahajano yena gatah sa panthah) rather than imitate. There's a huge difference.
