Oscar Wilde

It is possible, of course, that I may exaggerate about them. I certainly hope that I do; for where there is no exaggeration there is no love, and where there is no love there is no understanding. It is only about things that do not interest one, that one can give a really unbiassed opinion; and this is no doubt the reason why an unbiassed opinion is always valueless. — Oscar Wilde, from “MiscellaniesMr. Pater’s Appreciations,” A Critic In Pall Mall: Being Extracts From Reviews And Miscellanies (1919) Speaker, March 22, 1890.
