    The women here are much like the hotels in Brighton.

    A decade past their prime and a lot of paint covering the worst cracks.

    A pityful excuse of trying to be better than they really are.

    Me 2020..;)

    Misspellings aside, who could EVER deny the genius of Oscar Wilde?
    Hence I choose 3 of his most pithy quotes:


    1. "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken."
    2. "Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much."
    3. "I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying."

    He was definitely a genius, even if I could never aspire to be his equal.

    I like 1 and 3 but 2 I don't agree with forgiving your enemy. Find it weak and cowardly In my opinion you should seek to destroy them before they destroy you.

    I don't see how forgiving works if someone does a horrific act on say a group of people or a set individual i don't see how forgiving them helps you or enables you to defeat them. Your enemy is more likely to keep inflicting damage until you or your group you identify or they indentify you as or with are destroyed.

    A insult from a halfwit, sits much better with me than a compliment, Oscar Wilde.
    Everyone has a plan, till they get punched in the face, That quote is from 1 of the 21st, centurys great minds mike tyson,
    But i can relate to it.
    Dont wipe your ass with a broken bottle, cant remember who told me that one,
    Again, as somebody whos been allday fishing on a boat, and forgot toilet paper, i can relate.
