Oscar Wilde died in Paris on 30 November 1900 and was buried in Pere Lachaise Cemetery. We visited his tomb again on our recent visit to Paris.
A few days later we were walking past the Eyrolles bookstore on the Boulevard Saint-Germain and noticed an Oscar Wilde quote on a bag for sale outside.
The quote was a translation into French of –
“the only things one never regrets are one’s mistakes” from The Picture of Dorian Gray.
