Oscar Wilde Quotes

Submitted By Michael (michael)


A collection of Oscar Wilde quotes, some true, some not so true, and some obvious lies.

For a real quote type /truewilde and for a fake quote of uncyclopedia fame type /fakewilde.

The fake quotes may cause offence etc, but the real quotes are (mostly) pretty tame.

Note: I have no idea what the AIM limit on away messages is, and some of these quotes could go over that limit I suppose. If someone lets me know what that limit is and the best way to overcome it (i.e truncate etc...), and the apporpriate applescript to do so then I'll be happy to update it, but there should be no problems with this script.

I don't know what the limit is either, but for MSN display names its 160 characters. I used a simple system to truncate by something along the lines of "select characters 1 thru limit of string whatever". That'd be the easiest way, but if you want to do what I did, and not just cut things off, but actually only select things that fit the limit, you'll need to be a bit more cunning. I wrote a recursive algorithm to do it.
