A poet can survive everything but a misprint

Oscar Wilde.

Oscar Wilde and I are great friends in my imagination.

He is a dandy, a wit, and a genius. His prose is perfection.

This particular quote is everything that is honest about writers. Don’t read it wrong, don’t print it wrong and we’re fine. Dislike it and we’re better. A writer can argue preference but, cannot argue inaccuracy.
