Oscar Wilde Temptation Quote

The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself.

Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray, 1891
Irish dramatist, novelist, & poet (1854 - 1900)

This quote is often shortened to read:

"The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it... "

~ Oscar Wilde

And of course there is also his other famous quote about temptation:

"I can resist everything but temptation."

~ Oscar Wilde
