Oscar Wilde: Life is too important to be taken seriously.


Life is too important to be taken seriously.
- Oscar Wilde


Oscar Wilde was a writer, playwright, humorist, satirist, and astute observer of the human condition. What does he mean by, "Life is too important to be taken seriously?" Is it just a simple joke?

"Serious" can mean thoughtful, careful and profound, but it also can mean unsmiling, grim, and humorless.

I am inclined to paraphrase Wilde as...

Life is too valuable to spend time not being lighthearted.

Dance lightly with life today and every day. Life is too short not to be joyful and celebrate each day.
