Happy Prince: Oscar Wilde

happy prince








“You tell me of marvelous things, but more marvelous than anything is the suffering of men and of women. There is no Mystery so great as Misery.”  Oscar Wilde

This fairy tale is very close to my heart. The death of little swallow and the great sacrifice of kind-hearted Prince always bring tears to my eyes.

It’s true that we tend to enjoy all the opulence in our lives. From delicious foods to new clothes and from new clothes to warm and cozy beddings, we live a life in splendour and never bothers to think about the pains and sufferings of those people who are deprived of all these luxuries.

Our fridges are full of variety of foods but still we are unsatisfied. We want more clothes and we want more luxuries.

And, here these people are living a life of poverty. Their poverty creeps through their houses and their hungry eyes tell the ordeal of their sufferings.

So, how can we become a Happy Prince?

The truth is we can all live life like a Happy Prince and for that we need to have a kind heart. In fact, our selfless and considerate acts will bring happiness in the lives of these poor people.

Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde was an Irish writer and poet. From ”The Picture of Dorian Gray” to the ”Importance of Being Earnest”, Oscar Wilde left an indelible mark on literature and theater. He died on November 30, 1900 in Paris.

  1. I love Oscar Wilde especially “The Importance of Being Earnest.” I have not read the story of the little prince but I will go back in my university text books and surely find the story. I think sometimes that we are so use to a life of opulence compared to many people in the world that we don’t even realize how opulent our life is and how deep the suffering and poverty of others is. We just can’t relate. But I wish that we could more. Great post!
