Starting to enjoy Oscar Wilde's writing

I was reading a book about ageing and the author liked to quote Oscar Wilde. It piqued my interest to read some of his works which I haven't read before.

Here are a few interesting quotes from The Importance of Being Earnest, about love, romance and other things.

The very essence of romance is uncertainty.

Divorces are made in Heaven.

Girls never marry to the men they flirt with.

Once a week is quite enough to dine with one's own relations.

In married life, three is company and two is none.

A man who decides to get married should know everything or nothing.

Do you like Wilde? What's your favourite quotes?
