My dear,

You can talk seriously about today’s weather, the neighbours affairs, and about, “Just how big little Jimmy’s gotten in just a few years,” but not about life.

You can talk seriously about the demeanor of another, the looks of another, and the income of another, but not about life.

Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about.

Falsely yours,
Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde
